Video: Euro fighters getting the goods in the Mentawais

Last season the hard-charging European contingent of Michel Bourez, Nico Von Rupp, Jonathan Gonzalez and Naum Ildefonse got on a boat and went on a tear through the Mentawaiis. They scored fun surf the entire trip and one absolutely perfect day at Greenbush.

In the midst of the surfing Mecca that is the Mentawai, lies a special gem, that is Greenbush. One of the archipelago’s most famous waves, the lefthand barrel machine is as dangerous as it is beautiful. Alluring with the promise of a 100m barrel, the stakes run high with its speed and a very dry last section is oh so tempting.
