Macaronis is undoubtedly one of the most famous and coveted waves on the whole Mentawai archipelago. The location can also be one of the most crowded waves you will find around the Mentawai. Most of the times, people find a bit hectic surfing Macarronis, which is very unfortunate given its playfulness and perfection.
This left-hander is an absolute machine, from barrels at the take-off to manoeuvres all the way down, the wave provides everything you could ever dream of.
Maccas can be a real training track as well as very fun up until 5 ft., once the swell hits anything over than that, the wave transform itself and becomes the ‘real deal’ even for experienced surfers, with some tough take-offs, heavy and hard-to-make waves hollowing all the way.
