sarrold - Am currently in Mauritius. Last Wed Tamarin was firing. Solid 6ft + sets. Ive just uploaded a pic.
As we've all read, its an epic world class left with multiple barrel sections and fast down the line speed turns.
In 3.5hrs of being out there I caught all of 4 waves. Within 3mins of being in the lineup I was warned to sit wide and down the line - or there would be trouble. I was repeatedly warned on at least half a dozen occasions. It wasn't just one guy, or two or even three - its a tight knit band of localism supported by all.
I am a respectful global surfer. I know I am a visitor. I don't paddle up the inside, drop in or collapse waves but all the rules of etiqutte don't mean shit here and these guys are a rule unto themselves. Never in my life have I experienced such inbred twisted localism. It goes against the whole reason of why we surf.
The funny thing is - these guys have a world class wave on their doorstep and usually this leads to high progression of surfing skill but because they close themselves off from the outside world their surfing skills are sadly lacking. No one I saw was truly ripping. Equipment was outdated and because no one is there to push, their surfing skills are sadly lacking in comparission to anywhere else with a world class wave in the backyard.
Its mainly the French & South African "locals" you have to watch out for. I'm 6'4 and 100kgs myself so I'm not small. Each one of the protagonists was all of 5'8 and weedy. I've heard that if you surf some of the other lesser populated breaks on Mauritius and only encounter 1 or 2 of them out then they are not as brave as when they have 20 behind them.
Its a sad state of affairs. Never ever have I been threatened in the surf like that - and told not to sit down the line and not compete. Assholes.
TOURIST SURFERS BE AWARE OF THE PYGMY - The "PYGMY" Is a small Shaved Bald Hair guy that tells Tourist Surfers their not ALLOWED to surf at "One Eyes" and at Tamarin Bay, Pygmy makes and owns a "Seacart" Company in Mauritius. This little minded Pygmy is no threat, if he tells you that your not allowed to Surf just Laugh at him. These "WHITE-SKIRT Pillions just have to realise they don't OWN THE OCEAN and the surf breaks that surround Mauritius. If you want to surf in Mauritius go ahead and surf, don't take any Shit from Pygmy, Bruno, and the Pilot From Air-Mauritius Ettienne, if you are threatened by these 3 Pillions, Contact the Police directly, Also contact the CEO of Air-Mauritius and tell them about this Ettienne Pilot the violence he is showing for tourist surfers.
Further more you can Contact The Minister Of "TOURISM" Michael Sik Yuen. These 3 White Skirts must be put on NOTICE, and all this shit must STOP harassing Tourist Surfers across Mauritius. So good advice for Tourist Surfers, don't be afraid to surf. If you have any problems with "WHITE SKIRTS' TELEPHONE These Numbers.
BLACK RIVER COAST GUARD POLICE 4836922. TOURIST POLICE 4539915.

We WILL NOT permit that in mauritius ...and romet stop putting names on and infos on mauritian locals or we will bring that to the court!! We know who you are now!! Dont dare the devil!!
2 WHITE SHORT SUSPECTS. - The 2 Main Suspects of the White Shorts are a little skinny blonde hair man they call "BRUNO" he has been making Threats of Violence towards Tourists Surfers for many years now.
The other Suspect or Bruno's partner in Crime is "ETIENNE" he is Tall with Blonde Yellow Bleached hair. Etienne is a Pilot with "Air Mauritius" you would think he would have Respect for Tourists, but no-way he is the opposite and shows Aggression towards all Tourist Surfers. The Mauritius Tourist Police would be very very interested in Speaking to "ETIENNE" Also the Chief Executive of Air Mauritius would put him out if they knew he was Harassing Violence on Tourists.
So Fellow Tourist Surfers REMEMBER the Names of these 2 "White Short" Suspects "BRUNO" and "ETIENNE"
Telephone Mauritius Tourist Police 213 2818 Stop this Violence.
All Tourist Surfers Coming to Mauritius - If you have any PROBLEMS with "WHITESHORTS" TELEPHONE Black River Coast Gaurd Police 483 6922 Mauritius Tourist Police 213 2818 We must stop this "WHITESHORT' Aggression & Violence on Tourist Surfers

TOURIST SURFERS TAKE ADVICE. - I fully agree with the last comments posted below. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Its about time all us Tourist Surfers stood up for OUR RIGHTS to be able to Enter the Surf at TAMARIN, WITHOUT FEAR of of any kind of VIOLENCE towards us.
But always show the LOCALS RESPECT and go about your Surfing in a Quite Manner 3 EASY RULES to Remember, Dont paddle on the inside of Locals, Dont expect to take any wave, Wait yor turn and show Respect.
The "WHITE SHORTS" Must remember they dont OWN THE OCEAN, and any person can surf at Tamarin without VIOLENCE being shown towards them. The TOURIST POLICE will be very interested to Talk to any "WHITE SHORTER" that shows VIOLENCE against a Paying Tourist Surfer, This treatment to Tourist Surfers will not be tolerated by the POLICE or the COAST GAURD POLICE, This White Short attitude is very BAD for Tourisim across the Whole Island and the TOURIST POLICE Will be there to make sure the Tourist are NOT THREATENED in Any Way.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, Tourist Surfers dont need to take this crap from the White Short. Take the previous writers advice and Store those Phone Numbers in your Mobile if you are planning a SURF TRIP to MAURITIUS. And dont be AFRAID to phone The TOURIST POLICE and The BLACK RIVER COAST GAURD POLICE if your having any PROBLEM whatsoever with any WHITE SHORTS. Remember your Tourist Dollar is VERY VERY IMPORTANT TO THE MAURITIAN GOVERNMENT, and they dont need BAD IMAGE coming from any White Short Goon
ENOGH IS ENOUGH.
