This dual sanctioned 6-star ISC/ASC event has a waiting period running from May 23 – 30, 2012. The Rip Curl Pro Mentawai is stop No. 2 of 6 on the 2012 ISC Pro Tour, and stop No. 3 of 7 on the 2012 ASC Pro Tour.

Some of our boys from  Cherating/Malaysia have been on board “The Indies Explorer” and join the competition.It was a good trip and load of good fun with the pro’s from Bali.Was really good vibe and the boys/grom experience lots of thing while being there….surf with Balines pro’s…not like back home…sand break no reef and just small surf. Macaronis is the Mentawais’ most consistent and perfect wave, breaking consistently in all tides and ridable in almost any wind conditions. It’s no wonder that Macaronis was officially voted the world’s “funnest” wave by top professional surfers in a survey conducted by Waves magazine….cut the crap and I’m not a writer or reporter  and also have bad english grammar and spelling….am not a bla bla bla guy anyway….just a person love to surf and taking photo’s, so here some shot  that i got during the trip…..that i can share with you guys…..

First day  evening free session surf and first round heat

Its been a while no surf….”off-season”!!

Hi again all,
Been receiving lots of email and phone call from oversea and domestic regarding the surf in Malaysia.Sorry to say that we are currently close and will open again the surf school later November.The surf season In Malaysia start from late October/Early November and last till March.
for your information “there no surf at the moment along the coast” and its ideal for traveller to enjoy the laid back Cherating style at the moment.As during the monsoon…the water is not calm and will be not so clear at that time…..now is the time to enjoy…the South China Sea….

To be clear you can check the Lonely Planet “Southeast asia-on a shoestring” page 447 (15th edition) ISBN 978-1-74179-233-1 published March2010 or
