The dudes from Renegade (Dale & coach Pepijn) were great! This trip completely exceeded my expectations. We did 12 nights on board and wasn’t ready to leave. Scored killer surf pretty much the entire time thanks to Dale (and Mother Nature). Dale was able to get us in the right spot at the right time and even scored some uncharted gems. Couldn’t have asked for a better coach than Pepijn. His passion for surfing is obvious and he loves to talk/watch surf while on the boat and get in the water at every opportunity. I truly felt my surfing improve over our trip thanks to these two. The crew on the Seafarer were great too! The food was tasty and plenty of it. HIGHLY recommended.
It’s very difficult to express how incredible our experience with Renegade Surf in the Maldives was through words and pictures alone. But let me try.

Before the trip, Renegade were so helpful in answering every question we had and advising us on how to tailor our trip to our groups preferences and needs. Once we were there, we couldn’t have asked for a better host than Simon. He fitted right into out was the perfect blend of friendly and welcoming whilst also letting the us crack on amongst ourselves. His knowledge of the Maldives was impeccable and he delivered on every 50:50 call by giving us his advice on our options and ultimately letting us decide. There’s no way we we would have got some of the uncrowded waves without him. We even got to meet Mick Fanning (Micky), although I’m not sure if this is guaranteed on every trip, check the T’s + C’s.

The waves themselves were incredible and they catered for the wide variety of abilities on board. Everyone left satisfied and a better surfer as a result. The fact that you were sailing around in Paradise topped it off as well. Having the two smaller boats on the Gurahali really helped as it allowed us to surf at least two different waves in every location.

This was all to be expected on a surfing boat trip, I suppose, but it was the daily experiences on the Gurahali that made it a trip of a lifetime. The boat was beautiful and the staff couldn’t do enough for you. They made our experience so relaxing between surfs and chef fueled us through 3 surfs a day with unbelievably fresh food that was different every meal!

I would 100% recommend Renegade to take you on a trip of a lifetime and I hope this isn’t my last with them!

I went on a surf coaching trip in July – and it was awesome.

We had great waves. The wave quality was well beyond what I was used to on my trips throughout Europe. We surfed in perfect waves and empty line-ups on most of our sessions. You’d have to go to Indo or Australia to come close.

Since the only person I knew ahead of the trip was surf coach Pepijn, the group would be an important factor. I loved the people in my group. They were all easy going and very motivated to improve their surfing. Pepijn is an amazing surf coach. And being part of the group was a lot of fun.

The boat, crew and especially the food were amazing. The only thing I would have liked was air conditioning in the cabins. Something that will be taken care of next season.

If you’re looking to make serious improvements in your surfing level and you wouldn’t mind spending some time in perfect glassy empty line ups, then this is the trip for you.
I will definitely book another one 🙂


Surfing better is more fun.

The quickest way to get better at surfing is with clear and concise coaching in waves that offer a consistent canvas and no crowd hassle. This is our recipe.

Why should surf lessons only be for beginners? And coaching only for pros? What about the rest of us?

Join us in surfing paradise and through a combination of in-water feedback, detailed video analysis and surf theory sessions, we will give you the tools to push your surfing to the next level and keep doing so after you leave us.


Book your flights, travel insurance and bring some pocket money for the bar (if inclined). We will take care of everything else.

Our pre-trip questionnaire will ensure we have everything prepared for your arrival, where we will meet you at the airport and arrange the transfer to your floating home. Your Renegade guide (Reneguide?) will ensure everything runs smoothly and that you are scoring the best waves, with the least people, every day. At the end of your trip we will package up all of your photos and videos along with your personalised coaching notes, and send these to you.

Our goal is to ensure that you leave us a better surfer than when you arrived, gain a deeper understanding of our sport and most importantly, have the time of your life.
