It was not a big swell prediction, only medium size. A good direction and the perfect winds direction for the spot that has been blowing the last 4 or 5 months non stop.
My pick was Green Bush. This would for sure the best swell of our trip and I thought Macas would be too crowded for the first few days so I drove Aileoita to GreenBush.
We arrived there by our selves, 4 or max 5 surfers sharing perfect Greenbush. Not too big and not too small only a perfect size for a first session so our guests could get used to the waves. We had it all day by ourselves. Around 4pm another boat came and anchored next to us. At this point we had enough and let them have their share.
Next morning at first light we were anchored in front of the wave again. We knew we won’t be alone and a few minutes later another boat arrive. Perfect 4-6ft waves, a proper Greenbush. Around 10am another 2 boats arrived from Macas. It was still pumping and not many people were keen to risk their skin on a good, heavy and shallow Greenbush.
October is treating us well, a couple of solid swells and perfect waves at the Mentawai Archipelago.
WE have another decent medium size swell coming next week, check our 14 days surf-forecast (LINK)
Stay tuned for the photos of an Epic session at MACARONIS, we will post it very very soon.
