Discription of surf spot: Hollow Trees, Indonesia

Hollow Trees, more commonly referred to as "HT's", or "Lances Right" is a fast, perfect, barreling right-hander. Out of all the breaks in the Mentawai's "HT's" best exemplifies the term "swell wrap". The waves here wrap around the south end of the island and into a guarded bay over one-hundred and eighty degrees before unloading over an unmerciful reef aptly named "The Surgeon's Table". It is probably one of the top five most famous waves in the entire world and not without good reason. There are three main take-off zones, but it's the deepest zone, dubbed "The Office" that serves up the heaviest, scariest, roundest, most mesmerizing barrels in the world. On video or in magazines it appears to be a simple drop, routine cover-up and graceful exit, when you surf here you'll find out it's none of the above. On the contrary, it's one of the most feared waves in the Mentawai's, not so much because of the wave itself; but, the mere prospect of blowing a drop and getting shredded to pieces on the inside keeps most normal surfers hesitant to charge the bombs. Most surfers gravitate towards "HT's" straight out of Padang and end up getting hurt in their first session of their trip. Our advice is to catch it at the end of the trip when you're more comfortable with your surroundings and aren't afraid to get hurt because your trip was already a success anyway.
