Surfing scenic glory through Sumatra.

For our early May trip we were welcomed with exceptional weather and a smooth ocean for the crossing out to Mentawai islands.

Light and variable winds and lots of swell on the horizon for the New Zealand lads is a recipe for a great trip and we started in the north with some mellow breaks and working our way south as the week went on.

We were able to surf some lesser ridden waves in Boomerang, our 7 meter aluminium speed boat and trying not to blow our cover surfing some pristine lefts and rights while others stuck to the name locations.

Late afternoon Boomerang trips were a hit this trip with a pretty good strike rate off the back of Boomerang. Keeping Chef Hotman busy on the BBQ for the duration.

The weather held good from start to finish and even the sail home was magic to top it off with Nomad under full sail form the crossing home.

May really is a great time of year in Sumatra. The whole island chain glistens in all her surfing and scenic glory.
