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…..
