 Additional Information

This wave is a good left just out from the resort at Aloita. It's a pretty good wave, even for the Mentawais, it breaks over about 100m+ with a clean perfect face from 2-6+ feet, and barrels on lower tides or when bigger; the only problem is that it needs a pretty big west-southwest swell to even break, when other waves in the area will be at least double the size and smoking. However the charter boats never surf it, so you will have it alone, except for a few local workers at the resort, but everyone shares the waves. There are 2 more good lefts just round the corner and down the coast, but you will need the boat to drop you off as they are way too far to paddle, they are also always empty and catch a bit more swell.

Atmosphere

It's a pretty good mellow barrel when you are sick of the crowds at other waves, but it needs a decent swell-it will be less than half the size of nearby Icelands.
