is exclusively reserved for Dhonveli's surfing guests. Perhaps the most famous wave in the Maldives. Its name comes from the fact that the island used to be an Italian resort -- and after surfing the perfect lefts all day your arms will most certainly be noodled. Pasta Point is the best left out here. Picks tons of swell. is the least affected by wind, and offers a 100-yard-long tubing wall for your pulling-in enjoyment. The fast takeoff section leads straight into the so-called "Macaroni Bowl" tube section and then mellows for a couple top turns before the inside shallow racetrack, called Lockjaws.

R.I.P. Tony Hussain Hinde, May 27,2008 - As reported in the Maldivian newspaper 'Dhivehi Observer' (May 31,08 edition), Tony Hussain Hinde died on Tuesday afternoon in a freak accident while surfing Pasta Point @ Male' atoll. Unconfirmed reports from witnesses at the scene stated that he fell at the end of a wave ride, face down landing on his belly, apparently he'd suffered a fatal cardiac event. Funeral services are to be held next Tuesday, may God rest his soul.
Now I don't know about the rest of you travelling surfers out there; but it sounds to me like surfing Pasta's is back on the menu boys...

paying to surf it? - Is it true that you have to pay to surf pasta point even if you are staying at Dhonveli (tari village) beach resort? I was all set to book 6/7 nights there after my boat trip for 95USD/pp per night when I found that on the net. If true and I hadn't found out beforehand what could they do to stop a paying guest? I mean you can paddle 700 meters and surf sultans but you can't surf pasta point? what about 4 seasons guests? If i paid that dosh out I'd be pretty pissed if some punk is sitting there on the beach asking if you booked through atoll travel
