2 mins read

Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives, in partnership with The Perfect Wave, welcomes the return of the Surfing Legends Series. Former World Champions Barton Lynch and Pam Burridge, and ex-pro Ace Buchan, will share their stories and coaching tips in this exclusive surfing program. Kandooma lies in the vicinity of coveted surf spots such as Kandooma Right, Tucky Joes / Boatyards, Riptides and Quarters.

Aussie Barton Lynch has won the World Championship 17 times and is one of the most successful professional surfers of all time. He is now one of the most sought after coaches and an expert commentator. Barton will host a seven night camp from 27th April to 4th May 2024, with Dhoni (Maldivian boat) trips to nearby waves. 

1990 World Surfing Champion Pam Burridge and her husband, the legendary surfboard shaper Mark Rabbidge, will host a week of coaching at Kandooma from 9th to 16th June 2024.

Ace Buchan and his family will be positioned for a week at Kandooma, from 31st May to 10th June, 2024. Tailored for surfing families, the experience is open to anyone. Surf lessons, photo and video packages, movie nights with the family and opportunities to learn more about Maldivian culture are included in the package.

“Many of the surfers who join us for the Surfing Legends Series have non-surfing friends and family, so we can ensure they are well looked after too. The island Kandooma has so much to offer in terms of great food, activities, relaxation, watersports and even a Spa.” said Ben Horvath, Business Development & Marketing Manager of The Perfect Wave. “Surf, hang out and learn from some of the greatest surfers of all time. There’s no better place to do it than the home of Kandooma Right in the Maldives.” he added.
