Gold Coast based photographer Andy Potts hit The Mentawai's mid June for his first ever boat charter.
A bumpy crossing and a few days of left over wind swell was the “Entree” for the first few days of the trip.
But a fresh ground swell combined with light, variable winds ensured the “Main “ was pretty much epic! Macaronis and HT’s pumped all week and Andy nailed some great shots to prove it.
"It was an epic trip to The Ments, a chance to escape the winter Gold Coast blues made oh so easy by the helpful crew at The Perfect Wave Surf Experience." Andy Potts.
High line slash.
Low line slow down slash at HT’s.
HT’s tube time.
You don’t need a sticker on your board to get shacked off your head at Macca’s.
The most basic pig dog stance on a slightly longer board and you can nail some tube time at Macaronis. It is that perfect when it is on.
Can a three to four foot wave get any more perfect than this?
Offshore, sunny and a relaxed crew taking turns.
Don’t know what view is better in this instance. Inside looking out or outside looking in?
Slow down and tuck in, its that easy.
Wave after wave, pocket after pocket, duck, weave, slot.
Picture perfect postcard.
