The Renegade Difference

Here are a few reasons you’ll want to surf with us:

Small details, big difference

By joining a Renegade Surf Travel surf coaching trip, you become a renegade surfer and part of the crew. From small things like personalised coaching notes and care packages to the super important things like ensuring the post-surf beers are chilled to perfection, we’ve got your back.

Trips by surfers, for surfers

All of our surf coaching trips are guided by friendly, knowledgeable guides who are passionate surfers. Plus, when you hop on the phone with us, you know you’ll be speaking with someone who is an expert on surfing in the Maldives and just as surf obsessed as you.

Responsible Travel

Travel can have a massive impact on the environment we love, but as surfers we know it’s unrealistic to stop travelling altogether. Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact of all of our trips as much as possible. Therefore we carbon offset our trips, pay a higher wage to the local boat crews we work with and provide reusable water bottles for all of our guests.

Uncrowded Waves

Our Surf Coaching Trips put priority on seeking out uncrowded lineups. We get off the beaten path to provide you with a deeper dive into the Maldivian surfing experience. You’ll catch more waves and have more fun. This also allows us to capture way more footage for video analysis, ultimately helping you take your surfing to the next level faster.

Small groups, better coaching

Whereas most companies try to squeeze as many guests in as possible, we know that keeping our groups small provides a more personalised and in-depth coaching experience. It also allows you to have your own private cabin, more space on board and creates a better environment for everyone.

Pre-trip Questionnaire

Prior to all of our Surf Coaching Trips, we require you to fill out a short questionnaire. This ensures that everyone who joins us is a good fit for the trip and the waves we are likely to be surfing. It also allows us to tailor our coaching to your goals, plan airport transfers and cater for dietary requirements which all help your trip run as smoothly as possible.

Our Purpose

What makes us tick:

“To help you take your surfing to the next level in paradise whilst having the time of your life”

  • Providing an intensive surf coaching course tailored for your ability and goals.
  • Challenging you to get out of your comfort zone and push your limits safely.
  • Surfing in some of the most perfect and progression friendly locations on earth.
  • Connecting with like minded people

Why Surfing Matters

Simon surfing at Sultans

Surfing can change lives. I know because it changed mine.

I was late to surfing and honestly wasn’t sold on it at first. It was cold (being from the UK), I didn’t like the beach and after catching my first whitewater wave I didn’t really see what all the fuss was about.

However, catching and dropping into my first unbroken wave at age 16 was a game changer. The feeling of dropping down and gliding along a smooth wall of water was on another level from what I’d previously experienced. Having the independence to travel only deepened the addiction and I became obsessed with researching new spots, cross-referencing charts and learning ocean science.

Renegade Surf Travel was founded on the belief that surfing better is more fun.

There has long been a attitude that ‘surfing is a lifestyle not a sport’ or ‘you just need more time in the ocean’ to improve. Surfing is a lifestyle AND a sport and I’ve seen countless surfers who have spent a lifetime in the ocean stuck at the same plateau, yet never consider coaching. This is unheard of in most other sports and something I wanted to change. Why should surf lessons only be for beginners or elite level competitors? What about the other 90% of us?

Surfing gives us purpose, drive, a healthy lifestyle and a connection with nature. We can take it for granted once it becomes second nature but imagine how different your life would be without it. Treat your surfing to some coaching and I think you’ll agree you have more fun. After all, fun is the reason we surf.
