ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS

Macaronis Resort is situated on Siniai Island, just off the coast of North Pagai Island in the southern region of the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia. Located centrally between Katieit on South Sipora (Lances surfing area) and Sibegau Island nearby South Pagai (Thunders surfing area). Macaronis Resort is in a very remote area, 120 nautical miles from Padang, West Sumatra. The largest village and port on North Pagai Island is Sikakap, with passenger ferry transits to-from Padang. From Sikakap a speed boat transfers guests to Macaronis Resort. The resort itself is built along-side picturesque Silabu salt water lagoon, just across the bay from legendary Macaronis wave. Macaronis wave breaks in Pasangan Bay, located just outside of the lagoon. The resort is 5 km from the closest village, Silabu, which is 3 km inland on the edge of an arterial river system.

During Southern hemisphere winter months Macaronis can be surfed almost every day, and during summer months Macaronis remains consistent; 3 – 6 feet is perhaps the ideal swell size. Pasongan Bay has options for all levels of surfers, even for absolute beginners who have never surfed before! Fish Fingers is the perfect wave for learning to surf on our soft top surf boards, breaking just 150m away from the resort entrance, and Mini Macas is a Gem for the kids and somebody seeking a mellow fun left, if Macas is over 3-4 feet. In summer months when there are not many charters operating, we can visit a larger variety of waves in the Southern region including Roxies (likes West swell) and Thunders, which is a swell magnet and works best in small long period swells (ie. 1.2m @ 15 sec and above).

SURF COURSE AND ACTIVITIES


SURF COURSE DETAILS

During peak season, you will most likely witness several predominant swells come and go. As the swell rises, Macaronis grows from medium size (fun for everybody), and gradually becomes more intense suiting those surfers with a little more experience. On large swells, people are more likely to spread out surfing different local breaks, while the more experienced surfers get their share of barrels at Macaronis or Greenbush. Greenbush works best in South swells 180 – 200 degrees, which are generated by low pressure systems hitting the West coast of Australia, with swell refracting in a North direction, more common in summer months or early season. Macaronis works in any S-SW swell direction; it is more of a barrel during South swells, and with swells @ 200 – 210 degrees it gains its reputation of being akin to a skate park, rippable long workable walls with various barrel sections.



SURF MATERIALS

All surfboard rentals include fins and a leash. Check out the board models and dimensions below with full descriptions of each board from Firewire. Periodically, as we get in new boards, older boards will also be put up for sale. We always try to keep a good variety, with 2-3 deliveries annually. A big thanks to Firewire for their support!

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


 SURF CONDITIONS
Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

There are a number waves within close proximity to the resort. Macaronis is a perfect, consistent left hand wave that works on all tides, big and small swells, and most wind conditions. There is a fun right hand beach break ideal for beginners out front and several intermediate reef breaks in the area, as well as a few serious reef breaks that serve up the deepest, longest, hair raising barrels you could imagine. 

Seasonal conditions

April – October
is regarded as the most consistent time for larger waves in the Mentawai Islands and Macaronis. This is when the Indian Ocean is producing storms regularly and swell is usually more intense from all directions. May – September will likely book out the quickest

March & November
are considered shoulder months, where world class surf can still regularly be scored with less people around. March especially offers a great opportunity, as warmer weather and optimal surf conditions keeps most surfers in the Southern hemisphere closer to home

December – February
is the Summer Season, where glassy surf in the 2-4 ft range is still common, with low or no crowds and occasional larger swells. Dominant South swells are ideal for Macas and Greenbush. At this time you can book to take part in our annual Surf Coaching Clinics held in January and February, which include surf coaching and photography package.
