 Additional Information

One of the Mentawais beautiful waves. A long left reef pass set up with an inside wrapping bowl section. Breaks very far from shore so it is easily blown out by unfavorable winds. Tubes, walls, shoulders...offers up everything, a truly beautiful and elegant wave.

the sleeper - If this wave broke at solid 6-8 feet more often, it would be recognised as one of the best waves in the world. But it only breaks above 4 feet high, when it gets really good, about 20 or so days a year. I saw a guy get a triple overhead wave here with 3 very deep pipeline-like barrel sections that were long and perfect. One of the best waves I have ever seen at 6-8 feet and a light SE wind.

rimjobs are sweet - intense crowds, but if u hook it up ya can get barrled the length of the reef and boost of the end bowl.
