According to Stokedfortravel.com, some of the best surf spots you have access to from Thulusdhoo are as follows,
Cokes: Cokes is one of the most famous surf spots in the Maldives and is the islands local break. Sitting just off the main island it’s an easy paddle to get out into the lineup – but it depends on the swell of course!
Chickens: Sat just across the channel from Cokes and just a few minutes boat transfer from Thulusdhoo is Chickens – one of the most fun left handers in the Maldives. Breaking over a deeper reef than Cokes it’s much more playful, but when the swell rolls in get ready for some carveable walls, small barrel sections and some super long rides.
Jail breaks: Breaking off another local island, Himmasfushi, Jailbreaks is another firm favourite in the Maldives surf spot hit list.
It is much less daunting than Cokes, Jailbreaks offers some really long right handers which start along the shallow reef and run along the island into the deeper channel. A great option when some of the other spots are getting a bit crowded.
Sultans: Sultans surf spot thulusdhoo island maldives surf guide surfing 3Alongside Cokes this is another world class right hander, breaking off an uninhabited island just across from the famed Pasta Point and close to Himmafushi.
Honkys: Paddle up past the peak of Sultans and you’ll find Honkys – which is basically the left hand version of Sultans! Same deal here, although Honkys is usually a longer ride than Sultans and less busy too.
Ninjas: For those looking for a more playful wave, the 20 minute boat trip from Thulusdhoo to Ninjas offers up some really fun right handers and is a favourite for intermediate surfers and longboarders too.
