Based on recent events, I expected the caption to read something like "Ten time world champion Kelly Slater obtaining his Maldives surf charter pilot's licensing." But seriously, great shot.

Actually, yea :P. I had an NSP as my first board and I learnt very very fast. Good learner bored to get up on / learn. I reccomend it and the prices isn't exspensive either.

The left is Honkey's; which needs more swell and is where I had one of the best waves of my life. The inside section is sick!! Didnt know about Tony. Top boy, RIP mate.

I would get there anyway I could, happy days.

No, the island to the left is uninhabited, the boats from the resorts or the liveaboards drop you off in the line up. The break in the background breaks on Dhonveli island which has a resort on it. The paddle from there looks manageable but the currents between the islands are too strong.
