Macaronis: A Love & Hate Relationship

Macas is the dream of any surfer. One of the must perfect playful wave in the world. You can be a beginner or you can be a Pro, it does not matter we all love Macas.

I sit slumped, fatigued from air travel, gazing aimlessly at my phone screen. I am flicking through images to pass time while I wait for my guests to arrive. A little nervous, a tad excited and quite unsure of what awaits on-board the Aileoita. My legs stick to the faux leather seat in the hotel lobby.

A day’s travel from Perth to Padang I find myself pensively waiting to board the boat to set sail on my first Mentawai surf trip as a coach and guide.

Yesterday the rain that has been terrifying Bali’s visitors gave us a break. We had some sun between clouds and a bit, just a bit, of rain. The swell that was supposed to arrive on Tuesday wasn’t as good as predicted so we went to our perfect scape: Bingin
