my home break... - I've moved to europe now and start a new live here,damn cold here man ..Air Manis that's my homebreak.I remember 7 years ago when me and my friends 1st time surfed there,good smell air and clean water.Noone else,just us.Even the locals there didn't have no idea wht we were doing.But now it's a good thing to see the boys there rocking...I'll be back there soon and splash your face !!

This is a spot? - Now that we're using the term "Spot" so loosely, i'm just going to go ahead and post the sick left that comes in by Usman's dock in Teluk Bayur, i've seen like 10 kids aged 12 and under out there before! It was firing! I bet if you surf Air Manis you probably won't even want to go to the Mentawais anymore, it is that good. Be careful of the locals though, they are HEAVY!! They charged me 1000 rupiah to come into the beach, i was fighting it but then i realized it was about 10 cents, but when they raised it to 3000 i had to throw down. They were acting like they were poor or something.
