Six Senses Laamu partners with Tropicsurf

Maldives-based Six Senses Laamu, a luxury resort,  said it aims to build on its already thriving surf culture by partnering with Tropicsurf, a leading Australian surf company.

Tropicsurf has been operating internationally for over 30 years and has built a roster of 50 specialist coaches stationed in nine different countries.

It is positioned as a leader of high-end surfing. Regardless of age, experience or competency, the company asserts that everybody can enjoy surfing's ultimate thrills in safety, comfort and style.

Both Tropicsurf and Six Senses Laamu share a common vision: reconnecting people with themselves, others and the world around them and at the same time delivering out of the ordinary guest experiences.

Tropicsurf locations are chosen because they offer appealing activities that the whole family can enjoy, said a statement from the company.  

With professional guides based on properties around the world, year round, it is assured there's an expert upon arrival dedicated to delivering surfing triumphs, it added.

In keeping with Six Senses widely recognised commitment to sustainability and obligation to the environment, Tropicsurf will extend its collaboration with Firewire surfboards and exclusively supply eco-friendly Timbertek boards to guests, said a statement.

Firewire remains the only global surfboard production to carry the Sustainable Surf Ecoboard certification and is headed up by 11-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater.

Marteyne van Well, general manager of Six Senses Laamu, said: "A partnership with Tropicsurf feels like a natural progression for a resort already preferred by an enthusiastic faction of annual surfers."

"Those in the know have been surfing with us for years. Not just the pros, but families and first timers who have come to enjoy our privacy, nature and connect with the ocean. You can't come to the Maldives and not try surfing," she said.

"Partnering with Tropicsurf will enable us to extend our current programme and offer more bespoke experiences commensurate with each guest's ability and surfing appetite," she added.

Mark Winson, general manager, Tropicsurf, said: "Our company has a long and proud association with the Maldives, having been guiding surfers through Laamu and to Yin Yang since 1988."

"Without a doubt the area is a surfer's paradise. There are so many waves to choose from.  Add to that the seclusion of Six Senses Laamu as the only resort on the atoll, plus expert guiding, and you have a quintessential Maldives surfing experience in the making," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
