Hi, i am looking at booking a trip to the Telos in early January for my honeymoon. Have done the Ments plenty of times during peak season and was looking for something different for a change. Staying at RLZ but wanted to get an idea of what the waves/crowds will be like at that time of year??
Crowds low, but waves pretty small and the better spots need a bit of swell, they always make things look good as show you a few pics from best sets of the day etc with nice zoom in lens.
Personally id rather hit playgrounds area of Mentawai's that time of year, still low crowds but swell magnets are better, even burger world although not a hollow Indo wave is just like surfing low crowd Noosa.
