Guests at Macaronis Surf Resort have seen fun surf and a great start to 2015!
After a quick closure with lightening speed renovations throughout the building and property we have started the 2015 season with bang! The surf has been delivering for early season with tons of fun days at the home break. February is not known in the Mentawais for being a time to score, but you can confirm in this video, it is far from flat! – Macaronis Resort

Here is the surf recap from late December 2014 into January 2015 from our friends at Macaronis Surf Resort.
All video is from Macaronis wave + a few snippets from the ever-so-famous beginner break out front, Fish Fingers! Most of the surfing in this video is done by Macas staff because there was hardly anyone here! A normal “crowd” was about 3 people deep. Lucky to snag a few barrels this time of year and lots of open face for practicing those hacks! A great time for relaxing and getting some time in the water all to yourself
