This report has just come in from legendary best budget boat in the Mentawais, Santa Lusia.
“The first trip of the 2015 season was a great one. We had good waves throughout the trip, managed to dodge the bulk of the crowds, lucked into a few epic days of barrels at some of the premier spots in the Ments and we played enough UNO to last a lifetime.
We started the trip off up in the playgrounds area surfing fun shoulder high waves at a few of the swell magnets while waiting for the swell to build. With a strong west swell on the charts we headed ...to HT's where some nice barrels got ridden and the boys got there first taste of some solid Mentawai waves. The highlight of the trip was Maccas where we scored two days of epic 4-6ft waves, favourable winds and for most of the time we were the only boat in the bay. The trip finished off up near Tua Pajet after a few fun days surfing the lefts up the coast of the Sipora Island.
The boys surfed well and it was good to see the groms pushing themselves and surfing themselves to exhaustion.
Trips for the 2015 season are nearly booked out though check out the availabilities and get over here!”
