I saw your video earlier. Perfectly shows the Maldivian vibes.
What island was it and would you recommend it for foiling?
How long did you stay there?

I am in love with Maldives. We were there 3 times so far and it looks that we don't want to go anywhere else.
I've already booked next winter in Guraidhoo as it appeared to be reasonable cheap destination (in total 2500€ for two persons 16 days including flights).
what about you? Are you coming back?

The island is called Kuredu. They have a big watersports-center where you can store everything + rescue.

At low tide you have to be careful going out but it actually never really was a problem. I was on my 110cm mast and never touched the ground.

Yes, I'm coming back ;) Have been there the 4th time now. Price is an issue for sure and early booking is important.

I've been trying to identify exactly where you were Bracuru. It's a bit unclear where guraidhoo is. kurera is clear, very expensive.

Sorry - you're right - there are two Guraidhoo islands in Maldives. I forgot about it.
I was on Guraidhoo Kaafu Atoll - 35 km South from the capital Male.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guraidhoo_(Kaafu_Atoll)

Guraidhoo is not a resort island therefore it is many times cheaper.
A clean, spacy and new room for two with bath and AC costs 95USD per day including breakfast and dinner.
Reasonable return flight from Europe in January varies between 500-700€.
