Niyama Private Islands Maldives welcomes back Wave-Ki founder and instructor Brad Gerlach and surf photographer Junior Garcia for residencies from 10th March to 20th April 2024. 

Brad Gerlach was the world’s #2 in 1991, after dominating the leaderboard for the majority of the year. He is the founder of Wave-Ki, a land-based method to perfect surf skills, with a martial art-like focus on slow, precise movements which create kinesthetic motor memory for improved surfing once in the water. Surfer and surf photographer, Junior Garcia will be in residence from 8th March to 30th September. 

“The return of Brad and Junior to Niyama is epically exciting,” says Nathan Kemp, the Surf Development Director at the resort. “Their unrivaled talents, combined with the perfect surf conditions and absolutely incomparable backdrop that is the Maldives, guarantees an unforgettable experience for all who will be staying with us during this time”.
