Truly one of the most underrated waves in the Mentawais, this classy right-hander produces a slabby, take-off barrel section followed by a fun bowly wall. A 5 minute boat ride from Lances Left, although relatively short, Bintangs can deliver some memorable sessions under the noses of the crowds at the regions more famous waves. Certainly fun under 4 feet, a more solid swell will deliver a more thick perfectly formed cavern along the entire length of the wave.
