Thalib Saleem (Salty)

Position: Water sports Instructor

From: Maldives

Languages: English and Dhivehi

Interests: Kitesurfing, surfing, digital art

Experience:I was born and raised in the southern tip of Maldives, on Hithadhoo island in Addu Atoll. My life was deeply connected with the water surrounding me. It was this connection that sparked my love for water sports, earning me the nick name “Salty”. Since 2013 I have been sharing this passion as a water sport’s instructor at various resorts. The ocean is not just my workplace; it is my sanctuary and I cherish every moment spent there. Beyond the waves, I have also discovered a newfound passion for digital art which I have been pursuing since last year.
