All day we’ve been anchored along side a tiny palm riddled island in Mentawai – about the size of 2 footy fields. On one side of the island a world class left. On the other a ridiculously shallow toobing right. In the middle of the island is a perfect white sand beach with crystal blue water. Not another boat in sight. Doesn’t get any better than this. Waves were small, but still powerful. (3 foot). Swell due Sat – looks like a big one.
Not sure what’s going on back in Sydney do to lack of info (no mobile reception, no newspapers, no cable tv – just this little sat connection). Last time I checked a few days ago there wasn’t much going on (1 foot with SSW winds today). but hey that might have changed by now…Book yourself a holiday. Dooit
