Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Mentawai quiver.

Sinking piss in the Ments. The first trip, 10 of us drank the boat dry of bintangs by day 5 or 6, i can't remember exactly. Skipper had loaded 30 cases on board. He bought another 10 cases from a yank boat that wasn't drinking so we rationed those for the remainder of the trip. That's not counting t...

north coast has a better, more wide open swell window.
Agree. Not so many slabs but better waves all round (as SS notes) and the beachies are generally superior too.

Plus, it’s where I surf so stop pumping it up Coops or I’ll let down your tyres next time you hit Mystics :-D-:

Re: Mentawai quiver.

How did you find Scarecrows?? Fun, rippable, challenging, occasionally hollow, flawed. Very flawed. Needs perfect swell direction and currents. Super sectiony and short walls generally. Some strong currents wrap around that corner. The reef is beautiful, hadn't been blasted when we were there. The ...
