Want a Snapshot of Your Epic Shreds? Renowned Surf Photographer Erick Proost Can Catch it For You

At Niyama Private Islands in the Maldives, you have the opportunity to capture epic moments from your surfing adventure in the Maldives. 
The resort welcomed renowned professional surf photographer Erick Proost for a three-month residency. Erik Proost will be on hand to capture action shots of guests who head out to surf the majestic waves of the Maldives during their stay. 
While the Maldives is home to some of the best surf spots in the world, especially during the peak surf season from April to November, Niyama Private Islands is unique in the sense that the resort is home to vodi, the resort’s own waves which breaks directly onto the shore in front of the resort and is accessible by padding out from the beach. Therefore, tourists are able to paddle out year-round in Niyama Private Islands. 
Proost is a seasoned cinematographer and photographer specialized in surfing and water shots. His previous clients included world champions and professional surfers such as the likes of Adriana De Souza and Gabriel Medina. Proost’s passion lies in bringing man and nature together in one epic surf shot through his specialized photographs. 
Niyama Private Islands is the perfect getaway for tourists who wish to catch majestic waves, relax and chill out on the beach. After a day of surfing, guests can hang out with Proost on dry land at the Surf Shack, the resort’s ideal place for a little sundowner, serving up the perfect rum cocktails, and end the day to the sound of reggae softly playing in the background. 
With the recent authorisation of Dhaalu Airport to handle direct private jet arrivals and departures to and from the archipelago, arriving at Niyama has just become the swiftest experience in the country.  The airport in the Maldives’ southern Dhaalu Atoll is just seven minutes by speedboat.  Alternatively, guests can take a 40-minute shared seaplane flight from Malé or a 30-minute domestic flight to Dhaalu Airport.
After temporarily closing the borders to curb the spread of COVID-19, Maldives reopened borders for all international travelers on 15th July 2020. While tourists are not required to quarantine upon arrival, tourists are required to submit an online health declaration form within 24 hours prior to departure and are required to produce a negative COVID-19 PCR test result conducted within 96 hours prior to departure.
Maldives is gaining recognition in the efforts to make the island nation a safe destination for travelers. The country received the “Safe Travels Stamp” by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), in recognition of the efforts to implement enhanced health and safety measures, in line with the WTTC global Safe Travels protocols Additionally, Velana International Airport received the ACI Airport Health Accreditation for consistent measures, which are in line with ACI’s standards in the “new normal” during the pandemic. Velana International Airport is the second airport in the Asia Pacific Region to receive the Health Accreditation.
