Mengiat Surf Report and Spot Info


Intermediate surf guiding at Mengiat

Very light winds this morning but Uluwatu was a bit messy and Bingin was too small. We decided to drive the 20 minutes over to Nusa Dua where it was sunny and light offshore winds, and decided on Mengiat for a change. Only 3 people in the water and breaking very good at the start of the session. Crowd got up to a maximum of around 6 or 7 people and there were plenty of head high waves for everyone.

The wave is an A frame peak breaking left and right, and quite “peaky and bowly” due to shallow water on the reef, and deep water at the edge of the reef. It’s similar to some of the breaks at Mentawais and in a very beautiful location. The lefts are more user friendly as takes you into a channel with the current helping you get back into the spot. There is quite a lot of current running down from Geger, so the rights are harder work as you got to paddle against the current to get into position. A bunch of good lefts was the order of the day.
