Few surfers would disagree that the Indian Ocean is home to the best waves in the world, receiving copious, year-round swell from storms that circumnavigate the southern oceans, unimpeded by continental land masses. A sprinkling of Indian Ocean islands have proved themselves the most able catchers of this reliable swell, transforming it into a glut of world-class spots in balmy, tropical latitudes, fanned by trustworthy trades and monsoons. Surfers have been flocking to the region for the last four decades, as more and more incredible waves are discovered, spreading a feverish tide of exploration throughout the many islands, atolls and archipelagoes of this vast, warm water playground.
