BENG-BENG

 

Beng-Beng it's located only 5 min boat ride from our door setp, one of the most consistent and probably the easiest lefthander wave to surf in the Mentawai. It's fun for surfers of all ability levels. Any type of board works great here.

 

Best Size: 2-4 ft
Ability Level: All levels 
Swell Direction: Southwest/West 
Best Wind: None or East 

Best Tide: Medium-High 



BURGERWORLD

 

Burgerworld is considered a good option when swell is flat, there s always something to ride here. Even though it's not a premiere wave it is a fun alternative when everywhere else isn't breaking. Shortboard or fish are most suitable for this wave.

 

Best Size: 2-5 ft
Ability Level: All levels
Swell Direction: Southwest 

Best Wind: West/Northwest 
Best Tide: medium



E-BAY


E-Bay is a fast, barreling left that got one of the most beautiful and photogenic barrels in the region. One of our favourites and only 7 min from Playground Surf Resort door step.
 Usually you can get away with your shortboard but anything overhead and you might want to grab the next step up in your quiver.

 

Best Size: 4-8 ft
Ability Level: Advanced 
Swell Direction: Southwest/West 

Best Wind: None or Southeast 
Best Tide: Medium-High 

 



HIDEAWAYS


Hideaways is a world class heavy left that can handle the straight souths wind. Hideaways has the ability to be a sick cavern or offer up a rippable shoulder.  A slightly bigger board will be the choice for this wave.

 

Best Size: 4-8 ft
Ability Level: Intermediate - Advanced 
Swell Direction: Southwest/West 

Best Wind: Southeast/East 
Best Tide: Medium-High 


 


KANDUI


Kandui  is one of the fastest, down the line, left-hand barrels in the world. Kandui is a hollow wave with your only option for survival being finding yourself pumping inside of the best barrel of your life. The bigger the better.
Use a mid-size board to help you get to the wave earlier.

 

Best Size: 4-10 ft
Ability Level: Advanced - Expert 
Swell Direction: Southwest 

Best Wind: Southeast/East 
Best Tide: Medium - High 

 



NIPUSSI 


Nipussi is a high-performance right that always has waves and is a good alternative when the rest of the islands are flat. It's known as one of the mellowest waves in the islands. A short board with good volume is the best approach here. 

 

Best Size: 2-6 ft
Ability Level: All levels 
Swell Direction: South/Southwest 

Best Wind: North/Northwest 
Best Tide: Medium 


 


PIT STOPS

Pit Stops is one of the most high performance waves, with many movie segments being filmed here. Located a few hundred yards away from E-Bay, the wave itself starts breaking over a combination of sand and reef until eventually expiring itself on a beautiful tropical beach. One of the most photogenic waves in the Shortboard/Fish 


Best Size: 2-4 ft
Ability Level: All levels 
Direction: Southwest/West 

Best Wind:  Southeast/East 
Best Tide: Medium 


 


RIFLES

 

Rifles is one of the longest, most perfect, breathtaking  waves in the world. If you catch it good, just one good wave, your trip is a success and your return to Playground Surf Resort will be a routine. Get your fastest fins and board for this wave.

 

Best Size: 4-8 ft
Ability Level: Advanced 
Swell Direction: South

Best Wind: West/Northwest

A-FRAMES

 

A Frames or John Candies is very consistent left with two sections to surf, the top and the inside. Can be a bit shifty and require a fair amount of paddling around to find the right area but the inside section is more dependable and offers up a better wall to work with.  Any type of board works great here.

 

Best Size: 3-5 ft

Ability Level: Intermediate

Swell Direction: South/Southwest 

Best Wind: None or West

Best Tide: Medium
