Four Day Trip With Epic Lance's Rights Turning On, from Aloita Resort

Words, photos and clip by Grant Davis c/o The Perfect Wave

The surf guides at Aloita Surf Resort always convene daily forecast and where to surf discussions of an evening in the bar.

With a Strong 220deg SW swell and west winds forecast all day, a day trip in the resort speedboats or water taxis to the fabled Laces right on May 4 was a no-brainer. Arriving in the morning and seeing pumping 4-6ft offshore barrels with only three bodies in the water was a welcome surprise, the team were "frothing".

I tend to run out of superlatives when trying to describe the wave quality at Lances right, it is one of the best right-hand reefs in the world. At 4-5ft although challenging and a little shallow in sections, the wave is just so perfect that it's almost easy to ride.

Not a lot more can be said really, we surfed, watched and surfed again before heading back to Aloita Resort and Spa  with cold beers and memories of Mentawai perfection.
