Hi there guys
Where is everyone???
This morning we woke to find no boats in the bay, and as guests had departed
yesterday to Lances there were also no guests at Macas Resort, so the line
up at Macas stayed empty all day. Waves were 3 ft and clean with a light
off-shore blowing most of the day. Things really seem to be starting to slow
down here in the Mentawais, but the waves are still pumping!!
As expected the swell that hit on Tuesday produced solid waves all week
long. Guests staying at Macas Resort were treated to some Macas perfection,
although there were a few boats around at the peak of the swell, but even so
our guests preferred to stay and surf Macas most of the week located just 5
minutes from the doorstep of the water front villas.
Guests headed north on Friday morning aboard Laut India and scored clean
Lances left about 4 feet in the morning, before the wind came up meaning it
was time to hit HT’s. The waves at HT’s in the afternoon were also clean
with a light offshore blowing all afternoon, 4ft with 3 -4 second barrels to
be had on sets – not quite breaking from the office, but the crew were still
stoked to score some nice rights for their last surf of the week.
We now have our new guests at Macas Resort with no boats in the bay and a
new swell arriving on Sunday, which is looking great for the rest of the
week. This really is a great time of the year to visit, winds are variable
(no strong southerlies like in previous years), and hopefully this pattern
will continue up until Christmas â€“ it’s looking good so far.
For those that are thinking about a trip to Macaronis Resort we still have
vacancies and Special Prices available â€“ check out
Also check out the Macaronis Resort website to view recent reports and
photos and 2009 packages which are now up for grabs – definitely the best
value for money in the Mentawais offering the charter boat / resort combo
package for less than a couple of hundred dolars per night.
Be back with another report a bit later on.
