Pre-dawn departure from our hbr (avoiding the now known shallow, bumpy bits) for a short motor to the bottom of the islands and to "Thilands" the first of our surf locations actually documented on Magic Seaweed (which has been the primary source for surf info on the Mentawais).
A perfect day with sunshine and classic tropical crystal clear water and coral fringed beaches - unfortunately the swell not quite arrived but the surfers paddled in regardless and had an enjoyable morning surfing session in idyllic weather and surrounds.
Heading off to the next name-break, "Tea Bags" around the SW corner of Simeulue on a small outlying island Pulau Tapah.
