Early September Nomad welcomed a bunch of lads for their first trip sailing around the beautiful islands of Mentawai. Straight up starting the trip with a bang introducing the boys into the famous Telescopes. First sights had them screaming at reeling lefts as far as the eye could see!

Stiff southerlys had us targeting the lefts, keeping some of the boys frothing and some asking “where are the rights?”. We promised the natural footers some dreamy rights and headed towards HT’s. After perfection here and everyone on the boat being stoked, we pushed on trying to find the ‘elusive right’ out of the wind, however the trip consisted predominately of lefts.

Nomad traveled some miles and explored most of the island chain this trip managing to keep scoring great sessions and waves most days to keep the froth alive.

Thanks for the good times and see you all again.
