After travelling 550 nautical miles at sea over the past 12 days…we surfed 15 different breaks and averaged 60 waves each, per day. It’s been amazing. Incredible. The islands never seem to fail me. We’ve scored uncrowded 3-6 foot waves and good weather for most days on this tour. Disclaimer – it’s a gamble though, you can get skunked with winds and small swells. We got lucky.
Just to clarify some confusion, we are touring on the giant 38 metre Ratu Motu which was formerly known as Indies Trader 4 (Management change). Yes, it’s the boat out of the surf movie Young Guns 2. Y’know the one where Slater surfs the boat wake?
This is our last update from the Mentawais. See you in back in Bondi.
