Boydie Battles the Elements
Home to the Aloita Resort, this little island tucked behind the tip of Sipura offers some respite from the size and speed of neighbouring reefs lceland and Telescopes. Manageable lefts hit the north coast at Muka Ikan (Fish Face) and Tikus (Rat) offering walls, shoulders and the occasional stress-free cover up for improvers and cruisers. Usually only ridden by resort guests so minimal crowd factor. Needs some W in the swell to be half the size of exposed breaks and is clean in the dreaded S winds. Closest area to Mentawai capital, Tua Pajet with air and ferry links.
