WAVES in Mentawais, during the month of APRIL
There are about 20 waves around the resort of all types and for all levels, rights, lefts, a-frames. All of the waves in the Mentawais are reef breaks, those reef were perfectly designed by nature giving those waves their perfect shapes that attract surfers from all over the World. The month of April is considered early season for the Mentawais and it is one of the most perfect time to practice surf techniques in a user friendly size with already some consistency to it as the first long period swells of the season start to show up.
