WAVES: TWO OF THE BEST

New Zealand Surfing - - News -

PLAY­GROUNDS AREA Fun Level: 9/10 Crowd Level: 9/10 The high­lights in the Play­grounds area are Rif­fles and Kan­dui. Rif­fles - a freight train of a right han­der with mul­ti­ple bar­rel sec­tions that loves a bit of size. Kan­dui - some­times re­ferred to as Nokan­dui, is a hy­per chal­leng­ing left han­der that lures the more pro­fi­cient surfers into test­ing their skill rac­ing its un­for­giv­ing lip line. Few waves in the world are prepa­ra­tion for the length, depth and in­ten­sity of Kan­dui. SOUTH MENTAWAI Fun Level: 9/10 Crowd Level: 9/10 To rep­re­sent this re­gion, we picked Green­bush and HTs. Green­bush - A Hol­low left han­der that starts a wedge and grinds through a shal­low reef com­monly spit­ting mul­ti­ple times. This is a gor­geous wave but also very chal­leng­ing. HTs - Per­fec­tion in form of a wave, this right han­der has been known to de­liver the oil glassy pic­turesque forms that in­spired those draw­ings we all used to do in our books as kids.
