One of the best waves in the Mentawais and the world. A very long righthander that wraps around the other side of the same island as No Kanduis. Rarely makeable from start to finish, but even just from section to section you can get barrels up to 100 yards or longer. Nice and hollow once it’s a few feet overhead, but usually more sectiony at smaller sizes.
A heavy righthander that barrels and spits. Usually larger than most spots in the area. Watch out for clean-up sets. Great location for the photographer though to capture that barrel of your life photo.
This is a small peak for when there is heaps of swell, or guys looking for a mellower option. Mainly a right with a short barrel off the takeoff, but quickly dies off into the channel. There’s an even shorter left, but usually not worth the effort. Low intermediates and Kids love this wave.
