 Additional Information

A very consistent world class wave, an extremely rippable left. This spot is loads of fun and probably one of the easiest waves to surf in the Mentawai's. It's the deepest and safest wave in the area and also pick up a bit more swell than other locales. 5 more breaks in the area, including E-Bay and Pitstops. Nestled inside a small bay with one of the most scenic views imaginable all around you.

Ah nevermind - Bingtangs was the Righthander i was thinking of...Bingtangs and Beng Bengs were the 2 most epic treats of the trip. Can you get these in the states? i smuggled a few candy bars home but they are now gone.
