Progression & Performance surfing adventure
Maldives :: September 13-20, 2015
The Flowstate Collective invite you to join us for our next adventure. This time we are hitting the high seas, aboard a stunning vessel for a week long Surf & Freediving odyssey.
This is not your usual surf charter. This is a mindful surf trip carefully designed to elevate your surfing performance and give you takeaways that will benefit you for life. Bodhi Whitaker, our private surfing coach, breath guide and yoga teacher will be offering technique analysis and post surf video analysis to go along with a powerful lineup of breath training, mindfulness and flow state neuroscience designed to unleash your full potential.
This trip is designed for intermediate and advanced surfers. If you are a beginner, not many of the waves will be suitable, but you will find plenty of fun and games on the boat.
Intermediates: If you can surf down the line, then the Maldives is perfect. The waves are perfect for lining up turns, and you won't see many closeouts on this trip. Plus, surf coaching will raise your game fast.

The Boat & Crew
We will be cruising through this wave-rich zone aboard the Ocean Divine, an amazing handbuilt, modern and spacious boat. The owners David and Gaëlle, have been running tours in the Maldives since 1989.
The Ocean Divine is 34 meters of joy, filled with all the toys. The beauty of being on a boat which is run by the owners, is the personal touch. David and Gaëlle pride themselves on their attention to detail, local knowledge and friendly service.
David has a deep understanding of the Maldives archipelago and the customs and history of the country. He is also a very experienced sailor who will be delighted to share his knowledge on sailing and navigation.
With 2 supporting boats we are looking a maximum surf time and minimum hanging around. When not surfing or freediving, we can unwind and relax in absolute 5 star comfort assisted by a highly professional crew including a surf guide, masseuse, top level chef, and bartender.
The schedule and vibe:
This is a surf & freedive adventure, so everything will be arranged around those 2 activities. The focus is on exploring and then unleashing our full potential, so we will be playing all day long. Expect to sleep very well. :)
We will keep a very flexible schedule as conditions change constantly and we will be moving according to wind and swell direction. The Maldives is very well suited for both intermediate and more advanced surfers. If you are not so keen on surfing, there will be plenty of other activities to keep you learning and excited.
