general information

Like most of the waves in the Mentawi's that break on the south side of islands, these waves are typically the most powerful and hollow. Rifles is no exception. It's sometimes hard to pick the break if it isnt really working as the wave is so fast it looks like one big reef wide shutdown.

In the right conditions though this wave offers heart in the mouth tube rides with death defying escape routes to boot.

Maniacs only on low tides.
