Kandui in July - photos and video

The July Kandui report is brought to you by The Perfect Wave travel company with words by Dylan Wilkie and photos from Def Photo c/o Kandui Villas.

July started with a solid 4-6 foot swell at Kandui. Our guests scored a relatively empty lineup with perfect glassy conditions and everyone jagged their fair share of world class, hollow lefts.

Since then, we've enjoyed consistent south swells in the 3-4 foot range with early light variable winds tending north. Visiting young West Australian chargers Felix and Max Leaver capitalised on the pre-dawn surf checks and were recently rewarded at an undisclosed right-hander. Whilst the next day all our guests scored a standout session at Rifles. With smiles all round everyone was stoked.

There have been fun waves at A-frames, 4 Bobs, and Playground Lefts have constantly produced waist to chest height options for those guests looking for a mellow rippable surf. With ten different waves located around the islands there’s options for everyone.

The end of July really put an exclamation point behind the word epic with Phil Read and Bradley Norris at big Kandui Left.

So with winter well and truly set in back in Oz, it’s time to pack your boards, family and friends and join us at Kandui Villas.
