Join Australian SUP Champion and expert SUP surf coach, Beau Nixon, on a fully guided coaching experience in the Central Atolls. This trip is best for SUP surfers looking to enhance their surfing ability in paradise. 

The Maldives is a perfect location to improve your surfing ability as the waves break slowly over the deep coral reefs and allow surfer’s to practice their technique over and over again on mechanical-like waves. Beau coaches both in the waves and offers video coaching analysis throughout the trip so you can see your progression in real time!

Also onboard will be accomplished Marine Biologist, Clare Baranowski, who will be educating and guiding non-surfing guests on ocean adventures, snorkels and offering presentations on the marine environment.

When sailing in the Central Atolls, your hosts Beau and Clare will take care of your needs, get you into the best waves and make your stay onboard feel like a second home.

Everyone is welcome; from those who only want to surf; couples with one surfer and one non-surfer; friends and kids.
