The Rising Sun Of Early Season
Group of surfers from Japan score HT's and more in the Mentawais
It's becoming usual for us to start the season with the Japanese crew onboard our boats. For 3 years in a row we’ve had them booked at Star Koat and Moon Palikir for a custom 7 days trip around the Ments from the months of January to February.
They come from a cold winter at the land of the rising sun straight to the tropical warm waters of the Indian Ocean seeking out empty lineups and mellow waves to make the most of their short vacations.
Although we do have always an interpreter aboard together with our surf guide, there are no words necessary to translate a smile. We may say that our happy guests scored heaps of good waves and zero crowd in most of the surf spots we went, and next year they are booked again!
The early season is definitely a great choice for everyone who wants to escape the usual quarrel about waves of the high season and make some ease surf in soft conditions.
