Surfing was first introduced to the Maldives in the late 70s. In 1973 an Australian surfer named Tony Hinde, took a break from surfing in Sri Lanka and together with a friend set sail for the Africa. He was never to reach his destination.

Hinde and fellow Australian surfer Mark Scanlon were shipwrecked on the North Malé atoll in the Maldives aboard the Whitewings. Hinde spent several unplanned months in the Maldives repairing the boat.

He quickly discovered the thrill of surfing on the Maldivian reefs and how good the surfing potential was in the northern Maldives, therefore he decided to stay in the country. In order to stay in the country, he changed his name to Tony Hussein Hinde, married a local lady.

Hinde largely managed to keep the surfing possibilities of the Maldives an open secret among surfing friends for almost fifteen years. However, in the mid-1980s Hinde opened Atoll Adventures, a surfing camp in Tari village, in response to plans by foreign investor to open resorts in the area.

Hinde continued to run the surfing camp and hotel, which changes its name to Dhonveli Beach & Spa in early 2000. Tony Hussein Hinde died on May 27, 2008 while surfing at Pasta Point in Malé Atoll in the Maldives at the age of 55. He suffered an apparent heart attack after riding a wave. Hinde is considered to be the “father of surfing in the Maldives.”
