Niyama Private Islands Announces Surf Residency with Brad Gerlach

Niyama Private Islands, the luxury Maldives resort with its own breaking wave, has announced two exciting surf initiatives with pro surfer Brad Gerlach.
The 1991 World #2 pro surfer and Wave-Ki founder will be in residence at Niyama Resort from March 16th to April 19th to offer special Wave-Ki coaching sessions. He will also instruct the in-house surf guides to become accredited Wave-Ki instructors.
Niyama, which is home to two islands – Play and Chill – features the Vodi wave just off the shore of Play Island.
The powerful and sometimes hollow left-hander isn’t the only wave Niyama guests can ride. A short speedboat ride away takes surfers to the hollow right-hander Kasabu wave. In addition, up to four other waves are in the local vicinity.
Niyama Private Islands offers a collection of 134 villas, suites and pavilions, many with their own private pools, located along the beaches or extending over the lagoon. Surfing can be enjoyed year-round at the resort, with bigger surf available from March to November.
