Help conserve water by surfing

Water sports enthusiasts can now help conserve water by taking part in a new event launched by Six Senses Laamu.

Six Senses Watermen will see a host of surfing icons and divers join forces with water conservationists to inspire and educate guests through ‘how to’ clinics and talks. Longboard surfing legend, Herbie Fletcher; free diving world champion, Sara Campbell; kite surfing champion brothers Sean and Jesse Richmann: will all be among the speakers.

Leading debates on marine and drinking water issues faced by residents of the Maldives and the world as a whole will be oceanographers, biologists, environmentalists and film makers, such as Charles Clover, director of Running Dry, a powerful documentary about the world’s water crisis.

Organised beach cleanups and coral reef restorations will also take place over the seven-day event, giving guests the chance to get involved and make a difference to the world’s oceans, all the while knowing that the proceeds from the event will go to charities such as Plant A Fish ( and Water Charity ( And while not taking part in activities and talks guests can snorkel on the house reef, surf Yin Yang, an eight-foot break just off shore, canoe, wakeboard or dive.

Six Senses Watermen takes place 30 September – 4 October. Packages are available for four nights (US$6,000 for two people or US$4,400 single) and seven nights (US$9,900 for two people or US$ 7,400 single) including all breakfasts and dinners, the Barefoot Gala Dinner, a limited number of clinics or spa treatments and round trip seaplane transfer flights.
