#Maldivian surfing champion, Issey @kudaissey testing out his new #singlefin few days before he competes at the Four Seasons Champions Trophy event by @fsmaldives and @tropicsurf

About six years ago I asked Issey who his favourite and biggest surf inspiration was, and he said Taj Burrow @tajamos because he does these amazing airs!

And now Issey will be representing #Maldives and get to surf with Taj and other legends in the surfing world at the popular Sultans surf break during the next few days. It is going to be a good event to watch for sure!

Good luck Issey! We are proud of you!

Welcome back to the #Maldives Taj Burrow @tajamos Becca @rebecca.jobson and sweet little Bella!

It was so good to see Taj in the #surf today. He is the returning champion from last year's @fsmaldives @tropicsurf Four Seasons Surfing Champions Trophy competition, the world's most luxurious #surfing event.

For those who don't know the story, I did a few photo and video shoots for Taj's dad a coupla years ago when I was working with Tropicsurf, and in return, he gave me one of his @firewiresurfboards since I didn't have a board ! I still ride it and Taj looked pretty stoked to see me on it haha!

Sending lots of good luck and fun #waves to you Taj 😎 I am rooting for you!

Photo from last year's event after the finals. Bella looking cute as always!

Happy #Turtle #Friday all! Get out and enjoy the weekend.

This was from a #surf shoot yesterday. Every now and then, this guy would come up for air.

So blessed to be able to #surf with these beautiful beings everyday.

This is from today's session. There were about a 100 dolphins surrounding the whole area. Although I get to see them everyday, it always feels like the first time.

#Surfing with Ishita and Tushar @surfishita @2_sharp
It has been great so far hanging out with my #surf sister and brother from #India and sharing stories about the challenges we have had learning to surf in communities like ours.
Sometimes I forget they are not Maldivian and start speaking Dhivehi with them.
Also, they were very surprised to find out we have no cows in the #Maldives ! They have never had powdered milk before!

At least they can get fresh fish aplenty here!😜 Follow our insta stories for our daily shenanigans together in and out of the #water

Guess who rocked up to the #Maldives ? So thrilled to have @surfishita visiting us here. If you didn't know her already she is the first #Indian girl to get into #surfing and has been inspiring so many girls. Saaxu @aloha_saazu and myself being two of very few #surfer women in the Maldives, I feel like we have so much in common and have so many stories to share.

Welcome to the Maldives @surfishita . So happy to finally have you here after so many chats planning your first trip to the Maldives ♡

Been having a great time since I got back from #Laamu , going #surfing everyday with @norajasminels

Throwback to #Laamu days. Miss my homies
