Atmosphere

This spot breaks into a wind protected cove surrounded by palm trees inhabited by natives who live off of coconut and nutmeg sales to traders. It is unbelievably beautiful.

General

Perhaps the most consistent right break in the world. I watched over 300 waves 8-12 foot faces pitch out horizontally 15-20 feet and over tube rides to whoever could drop in and tuck. Every time every wave - perfection.

Going on May09 - I am going to Katiet on May09. I will not stay on any surf resort. I always preffer to have an integration with thw local people, exchange experiences and save money. I just want to know, if I pay the extra US15/day, will I have problems on this Trip? Surfing is ok on HT? Or I will have to "fight"against the capitalist surfers?

Tank you for your help.
Regards
Petrus

marty - a while ago i arrived in siobahn i was waiting for a cannoe ride to katiet. All the local canooes were out doing other things so i hung out till i could get a ride, turns out the fat dude mrty who owns the katiet villas resort had lobed into town for some supplies. I asked marty what the chances of scoring a ride were, he said yeh mate no probs 50 bucks. At the time i thought no dramas, so i jumped on knowing i'd be at lances for the late arvo glass off! Turns out martys $70,000.00 you bute centre console twin motor vessel had shit itself and me marty and his indo mate were stuck between Siobahn and Katiet with know help in sight, marty suggested i get one of my boards out and paddle to the nearest village and ask for help! good onya marty! turns out we got a tow from a couple of canooes, can you imagine what his resort would be like...?!?! can you imagine the reception marty got from the boys staying at mammas ..... Well marty i would have never written this if i hadn't heard that you have tried to buy out mamma and pappa housn, or if i didn't think you had somthing to do with the local pigs charging crew 15 bucks a day to stay in the village.... In short anyone going to katiet ... the locals are friendly enough, you should be able to work out a deal with accom... as for the cops and their fees... fuck em! support the local community buys a bit of this or a bit of that... look after the family your staying with don't expect to much.. and i'm sure you'll be swept under the rugh when they come looking for their money...... ps katiet villas looks like a shit setup any way.
