WAVE OVERVIEW

This resort has access to more than 15 surf spots of some of the most consistent waves in the world thanks to its location within the Mentawais. This is the perfect place for surfers with all levels of ability as they have waves that range from mellow easy rides to big fast monsters. The resorts speedboats are always cruising around looking for the best conditions depending on the winds, tides and swell directions and with the spots being in close proximity to each other, it makes it really easy to search for numerous breaks in almost no time at all.

Kandui Lefts

This wave is a very quick left-hander and starts working on the high tide when the swell starts hitting at 6-10 ft with a South West swell & light East-South East winds. The wave breaks for up to 300mts throwing out deep amazing barrels sections. Draw your line and hold on as you could possibly get the best barrel of your life.

Baby Kandui 

Just tucked around the corner from Kandui there is baby Kandui which is shorter, however, can be just as full on and perfect as Kandui. This turns on when Kandui is 6 ft+. The wave is better on a high tide and needs a South West swell & South winds.

A Frames

A Frames can have two sections depending on the swell and the tide. The one outside is most consistent & has fun take offs and long walls. The wave holds big and gets better when it gets more solid. When the inside bowl is working there is a nice barrel section. Works the best on a big south swell at low tide.

4 Bobs

A short and very wackable fun right-hander that breaks over a shallow sharp reef.  Needs a Northerly wind &  mid tides & 3 -5 ft. Very shallow on low tide. A great option when the everywhere is blown out by west-southwest winds.

Rifles

One of the longest & most perfect rights on the planet.  Needs a big south swell and northerly winds to turn on. Best at 5-8ft with a mid-high tide.

Pistols

This beautiful right just down the reef from Riffles has a fun barrel section and nice walls. It breaks on all tides on a shallow reef. Needs a small southerly swell and north winds. Great option on smaller days.

Little Nias

This fun left & right is perfect for beginners. It is good in all tides and breaks from 2-4 ft with Northerly winds.

Hideaways

A beautiful left hander that breaks over a pristine colourful coral reef. Breaks best when its 6-8ft & South winds. Breaks on all tides and gets very hollow on the lower tide.

Bank Vaults

This deep water heaving right hander marches straight in from the indian ocean and is best on a south swell and North winds. Breaks on all tides, however, is better with an incoming tide. It can handle 12ft+.  Great take off with a big slab section at the end.

Nypussy

Is the most consistant wave in the playgrounds area. It offers a nice big take off and a long wall that you can tear up down the line with a barrel section when it is small and on a low tide. Breaks on all tides the lower being better with a North wind.

Ebay

When over 6 ft this wave is powerful, perfect and hollow and when it is less than 5 ft it is a nice easy wave with 2 nice barrel sections. Works on all tides, however, more hollow at low tide. Best with a North East wind and big west swell.

Beng-Beng

Is a very consistent left when there is a small southwest swell running.  It is best from 3-6 ft and is excellent for all levels of surfers. Good on all tides.

Pitstops

Is a very fun right hander and is best at 3-5 ft, works on all tides and it is great for all levels of surfers as the take off is easy which then leads into a nice playful wall.

Burgerworld

Possibly the  most picturesque right-hander is in the world. It can be long and very playful and sometimes barrels when the section comes closer to the rocks on a lower tide. It is great for hacks and speed turns and is suited for all levels of surfing.  Sometimes when the winds are more east, you can go around the island where there is a fun left.
