Kandui Surf Resort, Mentawai islands, Nov 18 surf report. We were holding out hope for that forecasted swell to just show up really late, but it was still a no show today. We had a boat go over and surf Burgerworld and McDonalds. McDonalds had good conditions, but it was only shoulder high and pretty weak. Burgerworld was pushing a little bit more, but was a bit bumpy. Nothing too special, but there was not another surfer within miles so our group of 3 had fun. Probably looking at even smaller surf tomorrow.
Kandui Surf Resort, Mentawai islands, Nov. 19 surf report . We figured it would be a good fishing day today so we got up early and went out with all of our new fishing gear, complements of our buddy Drew. We trolled out to Burgerworld and hooked up twice on the way. One got away, but one we landed and it made for a pretty good barbeque this evening! Once we arrived at Burgerworld, we could see that there was quite a bit more swell showing today. It was at least a foot overhead on the sets and the swell had some push behind it. It was a little bumpy with the light south winds, but it was just the three of us and our driver there so we went out and surfed until we pretty much didn’t have any arms left. Not a bad little surf, especially because forecasts showed an already non existent swell to be fading and it ended up being bigger today. Go figure! In the afternoon, some of the guys surfed Beng Beng. It was pretty small, but no one was out so our 3 people had no problem having fun. Hoping a new swell might start to show late tomorrow.
