Anyone south of Tweed pretty much wished they were on the Gold Coast. The leading surf forecasting sites had the entire East Coast surfing fraternity pumped on the prospects, and to their credit most of the time both Ben’s get it so right, but in the case of Cyclone Gita, it was definitely Gold Coast or bust.
In the Mentawai Islands, from boat trips to land camps, one place truly stands out from the rest.

Portugal, Morocco and the Canary Islands are fantastic options for a quick weekend or weeklong springtime surf getaway from the UK and the colder, less wave-rich regions of Europe.

Having heard tales of friends scoring uncrowded, rippable waves in Papua New Guinea, I’d long been eager to experience this uncrowded png perfection.

One of my favourite places to get away from the crowds and surf any kind of wave I want, from epic barrels to easy-to-carve walls, is the Southern Atolls of the ultimate surfers’ playground, the Maldives. The best time to go is in March and April when the winds are low and the crowds are nearly non-existent.

Day one was a little surreal with no boats around and a 3-4ft building swell offering up some great waves at Icelands all to ourselves.We headed south from the tip of Sipura, Mentawai Islands, down to Lances Left and enjoyed consistent offshore 2-4ft glassy walls with the occasional tube on offer.
