A very consistent wave 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.
Not world class, rarely barrels, only breaks for about 50-80m, best on low tide.
Good easy wave, picks up swell. Not world class.
A perfect wave to try new manoeuvers...all kind of manoeuvers. Its named after a local chocolate (Beng Beng, not Bang Bang).
