I am the very proud husband of beautiful Maltese lady and I am also a surfer. Due to seeing various questions on this site over the years regarding surfboard riding and some very misleading answers I just wanted to add via this forum that there is definitely rideable surf in Malta, particularly Gozo. It is not consistent but on its day it is spectacular. I believe there is a site something along the lines of 'Surf Malta' or 'Malta Surf' run by an Englishman and is girl. Check it out!!!!
