Epic April to kick off the Peak Season

Compared to the last two years, this April was above the records in the number of swells and quality of waves we got in the Mentawais. Although the north wind was predominant during the month, it didn't influence badly and the consistency of swell, high periods and direction permitted us to score big time.

We had Greenbush breaking four foot in perfect conditions, not just once but three times. HT's was the pick for the biggest swell. It pumped at six feet with glassy barrels and even between swells it kept working just fine. We scored Thunders one epic day with no other boat in the channel. Even The Hole, in the farthest south, we surfed all morning just by ourselves with perfect left handers and not a single drop out of place. Not to mention many other spots that we love surfing around the archipelago.

April is usually the month that marks the beginning of the season, with medium sized swells with period variations from 12 to 20 seconds, and the crowd is still a few boats around and camps have low occupancy rates. It's easy to say that April is a month totally worthy to look at when you're booking a trip to the Ments.

There are two premier surf charter vessels available for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, the Star Koat & Moon Palikir. Check them out and get over here!
