What kind of wave is Roxie's Right?
Roxie’s Right is a rippable reef break enjoyed by all surfers. You’ll find yourself laying serious rail as you cut back on the wide-open face into the lip as the end section of the wave bends around. Or throw some air when timing the ramp section. With size, the wave produces softer almond-shaped barrels off the drop compared to the heavier barrels you find throughout the Mentawai’s. Although the bigger it gets the more it turns into a heavy ledge. All in all the wave is great for performance surfing and provides any type of surfer with a whole lot of fun depending on the conditions.
