Our advice: With the outgoing tide its easy to loose position, keep paddling to be on the right place. Surprise sets come out of nowhere and provide good barrels on the inside!

Note: Aframes, also know as John Candy, is located in front of one of the most beautiful islands of the Mentawais. Very consistent, shifty peaks with two main sections, one mushier on the outside that goes left and right good for turns and one left on the inside that trows some barrels on the lower tides. Very easy wave but the peaks are very shifty.
