Male atolls – Ninja’s Currents

Currents between Ninjas and Lohis

Currents play a huge role in the Maldives. They don’t coincide necessarily with tides so are extremely difficult to predict (meaning it can be three hours past low tide and the current is still going in the opposite direction). The current can be so hectic that none of the boats will even go to the other surf spots (happened to us at spring tide). An easy paddle across the channel to Ninjas can turn into a hectic experience coming back. Look at the way the boats are facing before you paddle back home – that will give you a good indication how to paddle. Also depending on the current try and hug the reef as long as you can before you cut across.
