We're incredibly proud to launch the world's first sustainable surfing program.
Conscious travel leaders, Soneva, have introduced the world’s first luxury, fully-sustainable surf program at its high-end properties in the Maldives.
‘Soneva Surf’ is an eco-friendly surfing experience, offered at Soneva Fushi in the Baa Atoll and Soneva Jani in the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, and is the first of its kind anywhere in the world!
There are 13 surf breaks in the Baa Atoll and 11 in the Noonu Atoll, and not only do they boast some of the best waves in the region, they’re a well-kept secret, which means they’re uncrowded and pristine – a surfer’s dream.
The aim of Soneva Surf is to be a model for sustainable surfing around the world where surfing guests can select the experience that suits them, according to their level of expertise, time, and budget.
The Soneva team encourage them to leave everything at home – which makes travelling to the Maldives easier – because they provide everything needed, from rash guards to sunscreen, and wax, and everything’s entirely eco-friendly.
Soneva’s eco boards are made from poxy resin, bamboo woven mats; and bio-foam, which comprises materials converted from natural plant materials (soy, sugar, algae); and they’re manufactured by an approved ECOBOARD builder.
The production of these baords produces 40% less carbon dioxide emissions than regular surfboards!
