Finding Macaronis: Photos from the first surf trip to the Mentawais

"We called it P'Land. The actual name of the point is Pasangan, and there's G'Land, so we called it P'Land. I reckon it's better than Macaronis though. Macaronis is so American." Tony Fitzpatrick, who along with Chris Goodnow and Scott Wakefield, discovered Macaronis in 1980. See the photos from that trip.

In 1980 three young Sydney surfers headed to the farthest frontier of Indonesia, an unheard of region called the Mentawai Islands. There they found one of the world's great lefthanders and camped in a fisherman's hut on the swampy headland surfing the wave alone. It'd be fifteen years before the surfing world twigged to what they found.

Wave of the Day: Victorian pumphouse yesterday morning

Victoria this morning

Victorian surfers awoke to great conditions this morning with a strong sou-west swell buffetting the coast and a brisk nor-wester brushing it clean. There were, as you could imagine, plenty of spots firing.
