No Kandui

No Kandui is one of the most dangerous waves of the Mentawai archipelago and is definitely not for everyone. The wave breaks on one of the shallowest reefs of the region, and some people might say of the world, absolutely perfect and stunning waves. This left-hander is powerful, heavy, and so fast that when you are looking to the barrels, they seem to be unmakeable, so when you are on the wave, don’t ever stop pumping nor ever look back.


Due to all of that, this is one of the most technical and most difficult waves of the whole archipelago, it does not matter the size, No Kandui is always really hard and dangerous to surf, it starts breaking with 3ft and holds big swells up until 12ft.

This wave is a wild and unstoppable train, it is the ultimate option for the adrenaline junkies seeking for some real adrenaline dosage.
