Swell Recap by Ben Horvath.

Yes it is true the East Coast of Aus has come alive of late, but in comparison to 31 straight days of epic Mentawai madness, it still pales in comparison.

Andy said, “August in the Mentawai island chain has delivered some of the best waves of the season, and there has been a surprising lack of crew for whatever reason, something you don't really question when you're scoring epic Macaronis with only 3-4 of your best mates.”

No exaggeration pretty much every day of the month delivered straight offshore 4-6ft, 16 second period lines of endless tubes coupled with rippable sections and glassy walls.

Potts was frothing when he spluttered ”It honestly felt like paradise stepped up a notch. Every day delivered perfect, groundhog day style sessions at nearly every reef break you could think of. I was lucky enough to capture some 10/10 sessions at the world’s most ripple wave - Macaronis, along with a handful of more than playful Greenbush days.

As I sit here now on the last day of August, watching more groomed lines of perfection roll past, I can only say one more thing… See you in September."
