Adman's Take On the Four Seasons Explorer, Maldives

by Tropicsurf Blog December 06, 2018

WORDS OF LEGENDARY TROPICSURF GUIDE, THE ADMAN

I've guided more than 30 Explorer surf charters. There's nothing out there like it.

A great benefit of the Explorer is that it can travel overnight to where the surf is best, so you can arrive fresh and surf all day. There are two or three Tropicsurf Guides on board, so we can manage beginners at one break catching their first-ever green wave, and their friends can be pulling into barrels across the channel.

We're always on hand to help even the most experienced surfers hone their skills and use video footage to give constructive feedback. For recreational surfers, the Maldives has amazing variety and consistency. The place is magic. 

Each trip differs with the dynamic. Evenings on board include excellent food and great wine. There are BBQ nights, movie nights and parties. Or we can go chase a swim with whale sharks or manta rays. Of course, you can always escape with a good book too. 

Without a doubt, my favourite part is the lively banter at the dinner table and the people you meet. Everyone is there for the same reason and that is to have a great time. There are a lot of laughs.

I’m Mike, Tropicsurf’s program manager stationed at our newest property, One&Only Mandarina. Perched amongst an unspoiled pocket of Nayarit’s tropical coastline, Mandarina leaves you feeling as though you’ve entered another world, despite being located just a stones-throw from Punta Mita. I reside at Mandarina with my fiancé Katia who hails from Mexico and together, we’re having the time of our lives as we explore this picturesque pocket of the world and everything it has to offer together.

Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew
Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew

September 16, 2020

The Hawaiian Islands are the most isolated landmasses on the planet. You feel the immensity of that isolation most clearly while bobbing in the ocean there. The cobalt Pacific’s deep-sea currents and swells detonate over Hawaii’s shallow reefs, creating explosive displays of barreling raw nature that’s nothing short of breathtaking.
