Non-Stop waves during April at Kingfisher Mentawai Resort

The waves were pumping is a common statement you hear when you out in the Mentawais, but April treated us exceptionally well at Kingfisher Mentawai Resort.

The month kicked off on the 12th of April. The swell perfectly syncing with the arrival of our guests. For 10 days Lances Left fired on all cylinders. Perfect 4-6 ft waves, groomed by a light east wind and a mellow crowd.

However, the highlight for us came on the 24th of April. A new group from Worldsurfaris just arrived and the biggest swell of the month was predicted. All the boats made a bee-line down south, and we were greeted with 6-8 ft waves all to ourselves. We surfed Lances Left in the morning and then had an epic session at Lances Right (HTs) in the afternoon. It was as good as it gets for any surf trip. Perfect waves, no crowds and ending the days drinking Bintangs and reminiscing over the incredible sessions.

Don’t believe us? Have a look at the photos and decide yourself.

A few lucky souls got to surf this alone all morning on the 24th.
