E-Bay => This is a hollow left that barrels off the take-off with a short wall down the line. A great option when a lot of swell is hitting. A hollow, fast, powerful left. A world class wave for experienced surfers. Watch out for the two rocks on the inside. Great barrels, and turns into a surfing paradise at 6 feet offshore. There is a heavy warble that hits as you are taking off. Make the drop and don't get thrown by that first warble and chances are you'll get a mean aqua blue barrel. The scenery alone will blow you away. Besides its aesthetic beauty, double overhead E-bay is a beast and forces to be reckon with.

Surf spots just onfoot
Beng Beng => 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.

Nipussi or Pussies => A shorter right that breaks down the point from Bank Vaults. Definitely fun and rippable. Usually has fairly deep water from the takeoff to the inside. Ends in a riptide that sucks all the water back out to sea. A good option when there’s not much swell, and usually the most consistent spot in the area.
Pitstops => This is the right off the peak at E-Bay. A playful right that can offer some cover-ups off the take-off, but mostly a high performance wave with air sections at the end. Ends in a sandy channel.

Go to EBay - ebay is pretty much the most consistent and easiest barrel in the chain. It's also convenient to get there and you can wake up, get some coffee served to you and maybe a banana pancake, then paddle out and get shacked off your head. Then when you're tired of going left you can paddle over to pit stops and pull into right hand pits off the drop and then do about 10 maneuvers before boosting an air and landing it while stepping off into the sand. there's a reason these waves are on all the surf vids, because they're the sickest. If it's small there's still waves and if the wind is wrong you can walk through the beautiful pristine jungle to the other side of the island where there's a wave called Nipussy, AKA Bells, they call it that because it's like Bells beach, so it's obviously sick. Then you can paddle out to Bankvaults and get pitted on the easiest barrel ever for like 20 seconds. Usually by the time you get back the local you're staying with will have caught a huge fresh fish and will be BBQing it up for you. There's also plenty to do for the missus so bring her along too, she'll love it. Don't sweat the malaria that is totally overrated the boat operators just want you to think this so you go on boats. EBAY RULES!

going feral... - for anyone interested I found this at http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa?messageID=13493790�:
"...A much cheaper way to do it is get the ferry from Padang to Siberut (a Mentawai island) on your own (US$6 - $12 one way depending on which ferry you want and the level of comfort you require). From Siberut you can charter a boat to Nyang Nyang for about US$55 one way. Nyang Nyang has lots of world class waves, such as E-bay and Nepussy. It's basically a totally undeveloped jungle island with a couple of small local villages and about 5 huts on the beach for those hardcore surfers that actually go and stay there. You pay about US$6 per night to stay in one of those huts. There is no clean water or food on the island, so you have to bring everything with you from Siberut, or otherwise take a water filter and purifiers with you..."
