Surf Magazine "Dhevi Hifaafa" Releases its First Issue
The first local surf magazine “Dhevi Hifaafa” was launched at a ceremony held this afternoon at the Head Office of the Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC). “Dhevi Hifaafa” magazine aims to document and archive the long and rich history of surfing in the Maldives. The magazine explores and provides opportunities to nurture journalism, photography, videography and other surf-related activities. It pledges and works to create a hub and dialogue for environmental awareness as well as supporting local brands by promoting their endeavours.
“Dhevi Hifaafa”, the name of the magazine, when translated in the local language Dhivehi is “addiction”. This is the passion and desire that flows through Maldivian surfers and is only justified as such. The Magazine was founded by Nahshal Nasir and Amir Amin Didi, both surfers who have brought their different experiences together to explore and deliver news about surfing in the Maldives through various mediums.
Dhevi Hifaafa is an annual publication which is available for free via their website www.dhevihifaafa.com. This first issue is now available for download on their website. Printed publications will be available at selected outlets across Male’ starting next week.
