A double black run - Kandui left is a gnarly world class wave, especially when bigger. It works from 3-12 feet plus, but bigger than 5-6 feet gets nasty, as does anything on lower tides. It's very fast, powerful, and breaks like a freight train, often with perfect, long, only just makeable walls and barrels. Its a peddle-to-the-metal kind of wave, with gaping barrels. It's not unlike a big reverse Kirra on the right day. The barrels can come up very fast when you are on the face and suprise you. Sometimes you can come out relieved from one gaping barrel, only to find yourself being slotted into another barrel that comes up fast, round and swats you without mercy. At 10 feet+ (15-20+ foot faces) it can be very round and looks like a cross between Teahupoo and G-Land. When smaller and on higher tides it can be more mellow. It breaks up to about 200-300m or more, with an inside wave way further down when really big. At 10 feet+ and a light offshore it is something to behold, but not for the faint of heart.

deal of a lifetime - want to surf these waves with no one around? the only way is to go in the "off-season". There's still swell, sometimes, in the mentawais is overhead when flat!! The best way to do that is on the "addiction". We're staying here all winter, don't make me sit in port!! email me and let's work out a trip for cost so we can both get sick waves and stay on a sick boat. Want to explore unknown breaks? we can do that too, name your time, place and price....this is no joke
