David Flide is a British surfer and a longtime fan of the Maldives. However, his eighth trip to the archipelago was not a dream come true. This is his story on paying premium fees for surfing in paradise.
"We tried to return to Lohis for the eighth time and enquired for the first two weeks of October. We found a really good price that matched their 3-star offering as a resort - £4,400 ($5,680) for two adults, and one baby for 14 nights."
"Last year, we had an awesome time, although the waves only existed for four of our 16 nights. But hey, that's surfing."
