Lances Left is a very long, superbly shaped wave that is renowned for being one of the most consistent breaks in the Mentawai islands. A number of take-off options means this place rarely feels crowded, and with an easy entry, it’s obvious to see why Lances is such a popular option. At head high, expect long, peeling, down the line walls, ideal for turns, combined with two distinct tube sections. At six feet plus, the wave transforms into a steep, deep water take-off with big open faces and some makeable barrel sections. Although not the most consistent barrel in the Mentawai archipelago, it’s length and overall variation means most surfers will prefer Lances Left to HT’s.
