Management of Surf Program & Dhonis  

ADS will manage the surfing program at Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi Resort for the 2018 surfing season, which nominally runs from 01 March till 30 Nov 2018. During this period, a maximum of 45 surfers will be allowed to stay at the resort at all times.

A minimum of three (3) dhoni boats will be available at all times during the contract period. The dhonis will be deployed to take a maximum of twelve (12) surfers per dhoni for surf trips to the 6 surf breaks within 30 minutes from Hudhuranfushi Resort. No more than one Hudhuranfushi dhoni boat shall be at the one break at a time in order to avoid overcrowding of the waves by Hudhuranfushi resort guests. ADS will employ adequate local boat crew to operate the dhonis. Dhonis will operate for a minimum of 6 hours per day with times to be arranged/confirmed/agreed by on-island management. The dhoni boats will take the surfers to a surf zone in the Nth Male Atolls and anchor near the surfing break whilst the surfers ride the waves for approx. 2 – 2.5 hours and then bring them back to the resort. Prior to the commencement of the surf season, all dhoni boats need to be equipped with essential first aid equipment & supplies.Partners/family/friends will be entitled to travel on each of the dhonis free of charge depend on the availability.
