Ministry of Youth, Sports and Community Empowerment, decided to develop facilities in five islands with wave breaks.
Minister of Sports Ahmed Mahloof, tweeted the announcement last Wednesday (3rd July), stating that the government will develop Lhohi in Noonu Atoll, Muli in Meemu Atoll, Maabaidhoo in Laamu Atoll, Vaadhoo in Gaafu Dhaal Atoll and Gahdhoo in Gaafu Dhaal Atoll.
In his tweet, he said, "Well be developing surf spots in N. Lhohi, M. Muli, L. Maabaidhoo, Gdh. Vaadhoo, Gdh. Gahdhoo and Fuvahmulah City in association with @MSAsurfing. Surfing is a sport that has brought and will bring many international achievements for our country."
Although these islands already have a resident population of surfers whom frequent the island's wave break, the ministry plans to develop a surfer's hut with facilities such as board racks for the convenience of the youth.
