Pitstops High Performances

Pitstops High Performances

This is right at the top of E-Bay.

A playful heel that offers some cover on takeoff. It’s mostly a high performance wave with an air section at the end.

Pitstops is an ultra high performance wave, best when head high. Take off from behind the peak for a barrel followed by a rippable wall all the way to the sand. Popular for the air guys and anyone who just wants to have fun.

Since early/middle 1990′s surfers visiting the Mentawai Islands to experience untouched rainforest and superb waves.

Pitstops is not your typical grinding Indo reef pass, but is regarded by many as the highest performance wave in the islands, and to quote 4 time world champion Mark Richards, “it has to be the funnest right on the planet”.

It is a triangular shaped reef over which this right-hander peels into a beautiful little cove at the foot of our hill.

The best bet is to backdoor the take-off for a nice barrel before the waves peels off the reef onto the sand where you will be presented with several sections that are as playful as you will find anywhere. After a good one at the end of the day, you’ll kick off on nearly dry sand and be in the bar in about one minute flat.

Pitstops is great because it requires only a bit of swell to get going, is very surf-able on all tides, and is still fun in most winds. Sometimes we just surf here all day.
