The 2012 Rip Curl Pro Mentawai presented by the Mentawai Government is the first-ever professional surf contest held at world-famous Macaronis on North Pagai Island, Mentawais.
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. The competition will feature both Men’s and Women’s Open events and a total prize purse of IDR 65 million, in addition to valuable tour points that will determine the eventual ISC and ASC champions at the end of the season.
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
It seems as if we are going towards the end of Monsoon here in Malaysia. It was not a bad season at all. Late November and December were really consistent, with lots of swell….and also the Quiksilver Batu Buruk Surf competition in Kuala Terengganu and afterwards the Billabong Cherating Competition were successful. At the moment it’s flat in Cherating.
Four weeks we were away from Cherating, travelling to Thailand and spending some time in KL and it’s enough now. Good to be back here again and enjoying the laid back Cherating. Nice to have our normal Cherating breakfast at Matahari Guest house…..Sheila’s Place….with good fresh coffee beans…..sedaaaap!!!
In these few day’s was good fishing at Cherating river.Went out few days a go and had few fish….we might go out to the sea fishing also in these few days…..
A medium size Barramundi at cherating river…1.8kg and 1.4kg
