Four Day Trip With Epic Lance's Rights Turning On, from Aloita Resort

The surf guides at Aloita Surf Resort always convene daily forecast and where to surf discussions of an evening in the bar.

With a Strong 220deg SW swell and west winds forecast all day, a day trip in the resort speedboats or water taxis to the fabled Laces right on May 4 was a no-brainer. Arriving in the morning and seeing pumping 4-6ft offshore barrels with only three bodies in the water was a welcome surprise, the team were "frothing".

I tend to run out of superlatives when trying to describe the wave quality at Lances right, it is one of the best right-hand reefs in the world. At 4-5ft although challenging and a little shallow in sections, the wave is just so perfect that it's almost easy to ride.

Not a lot more can be said really, we surfed, watched and surfed again before heading back to Aloita Resort and Spa  with cold beers and memories of Mentawai perfection.
