August was the month of the lefts and Lances Left lived up to its reputation as being the most consistent wave in the Mentawais. Day after day it produced perfect offshore waves for everyone to enjoy. We also took every opportunity we got to score our guests some rights at HTs and made sure they got their fair share of uncrowded surf at the semi-secret spots.
We had some beautiful weather for most of August which is a little odd considering the last few seasons August has been met with regular rainfall and blustery conditions. The swell certainly lived up to its August reputation with 3 big swells and less crowded conditions we have seen in recent years.
We were fortunate enough to have a great group of Aussie guys stay with us during August, the boys scored some fun waves, got to explore the island a bit more and enjoyed there time immensely. Below is a great video one of the boys made during their stay – Rob Johnson from Elevate Visual, check it out!
We are expecting another great month out here at Kingfisher this September, we look forward to welcoming Taj Burrow, Jay Davies, Dino Adrian & Kai Otton next week and will bring you some surf stoke same time next month, YEW!
