On your average Mentawais boat trip these days, you're at sea for 10 nights and you cover about 300 miles. In those 300 miles, you're likely to check around 13 spots. So are about 16 other surfers at the exact same time. And more often than you would think, one or two of those other surfers are the same guys you see out at your local beachbreak on Saturday mornings. That's the reality in modern Mentawais. Unless, of course, you blow life off and check out for six months on a boat. Then you'll see there's still hope floating out there.
