Here is a brief summary of each week along with our weekly promo movies from year 2012 and 2013.
A few tranquil moments this week at Macaronis Resort with some pumping waves at Macaronis and Greenbush. More swell on the horrizon yeeew..!!
Combined with Charter boat Alyssa, this week Macaronis Resort offered an exclusive package, where our guests enjoyed the comfort of relaxing on the charter boat through the day, while relaxing and sleeping in the comfort of Macaronis Resort during the evening and night time. Some early bird Greenbush sessions, and some fun Macaronis also enjoyed during the first week of the trip.
A quite week of waves, but still some good days scored at Thunders by our Brasilian guests and a few fun, but smaller days at Macas. Nice to have the original 'P-Land' discoverers and their families and friends along to visit. Geographically the place has changed quite a bit in 33 years, but still Pak Martin had the photo on the wall in his home in Silabu of himself and Chris 33 years earlier. Nice to see the photos and hear the stories of the first surfers visiting Mentawai and surfing P-Land way back in 1980 and 1981. Another decade went by before Teluk Pasongan was found again by surfers and renamed Macaronis.
Thanks to Rodrigo, JP and the rest of the guys who also joined us on the trip, was a pleasure to meet you all..!! Usefull links tracksmag.com/20090805131/Tracks-Trips/Tracks-Trips/Finding-Macaronis.htmland swellnet.com.au/galleries/256-finding-macaronis
We had an epic week here at Maccas. Adriano De Souza, Miguel Pupo, Jean Da Silva, Sergio, Michael and Phil getting some insane kegs. Made a big boat trip, leaving at half 5 and returning at half 5. Everyone wrecked but stoked.
Macaronis dishing up the goods again. Great filming and editing by Fionn Rogers, also by Marcelo.
Macaronis and Greenbush Going off again this week, with Jadsen Andre and crew scoring sick barrels at Greenbush and pumping Macaronis. Second day at Greenbush a bit slower but still pumping.... some very fun Macaronis scored durring this week. Rip Curl Bali crew visited with Pepen Hendrix, James Hendy and Mick Curley. Great filming and editing by Fionn Rogers, also by Marcelo.
A few smaller days this week followed by pumping Macaronis to finish the week off... Tommy Carroll visiting on the Maleluca, great to see he is still ripping..!!
Macaronis and Greenbush Going OFF with Creatures of Leisure Crew and Ry Craike, visiting March 12 - 19. Videographers missed all time Greenbush unfortunately, thanks to Craikey's BIG birthday bash (haha), but the 2nd South swell made up for it, the boys scored Greenbush going off AGAIN, and Macaronis was PUMPING all week long. Thanks to Fionn and Mikey for the footage, and Fionn for the super edit.
Fun small racy waves at Macas this week, perfect for 12 year old Taz - he was shredding, great filming with the go pro Matt, shows how much fun Macas is even when its small, especially for kids.... and big kids. A few long sessions in the water with only 3-5 guys out, can't complain about that.... thanks to Fionn for putting this one together....
Great way to kick off the season, Surf has been consistent over head, not
many crew about so we have scored Macas a few times with just 3 of us out.
Yesterday new guests Matt from Manly Surf School and his son Taz both had
an 8.5 hours session..!! Cris has been cooking up a storm in the kitchen
and getting his fair share of waves in return. Happy days at Macaronis
Resort..!! Here is our opening promo, just getting warmed up... Tue Feb 26
- Wed Mar 06...
Our first week back since completing renovations, we had a solid week of waves with a great bunch of guests, including Dr Phil Chapman from the Surfing Doctors. Fortunately we didn't need Dr Phil's services this week, waves were medium size and fun, although we did manage to get some nice Greenbush earlier in the week, and guests enjoyed fun Macas all week long.
Some fun nights in the bar as well, included our first pool party, and coconut post climbing competitions. We also managed to test the sound proofing for the rooms, which seems to work very very well ;-)
All in all, a great week of waves and first trip back, a fantastic time had by all, we hope to see everybody back again in 2013.
Fun waves at Macas, Roxies and Macas Right this week.... smaller waves but fun times all the same, then we had a swell hit macas on the last day.... leading up to the next epic week of waves...
Insane pumping Greenbush and super fun Macas all week long. Also surfed Rags Right and Roxies. Some incredible sessions, and one in particular with just 3 of us surfing 6-8 Greenbush foot perfection!!
Week 4, year 2012
Bit smaller this week, but by viewing this video you will see just how consistent Macas actually is. This film also shows off some of the new facilities at the resort... worth a look..!!
Epic pumping Macas, our most viewed Weekly promo check it out....
An awesome week of waves with a family visiting from South Africa. Pumping Macas, and some great fishing this week too....
Pumping Macas all week long with the Burleigh boys ;-) Absolute Mayhem haha.
A week with intermediate surfers and beginners, a group brought along by 'Simply Surf" in Costa Rica. Everybody had a ball and it was awesome to see some guys go from surfing mellow Silabu Left, to taking off on solid Macaronis. This promo shows that there is something for everybody at Macaronis Resort.
Great laid back week, great waves and solid fishing & spearfishing...
The Indonesian Rip Curl Pro held at Macaronis, wasn't a huge week of swell but the standard of surfing was amazing..!!
Tassie boys hit Macas, and enjoy pumping Macaronis all week long...
This week Macaronis was absolutely going off, one of the best weeks of surf for the year, shared with Bondi Rescue crew visiting on Maleluka.
More of the same, epic epic Macaronis, third week straight of Tasmanian's visiting Macaronis Resort... great place to thaw out and get some barrels..!!
The macaronis machine never stops..!! Fun sized Macas and a really cool crew...
More fun size macas with a chilled vibe around the resort… Some beginner / intermediate surfers having a crack at Macas too towards the end of the week…
This week had it all… pro's performing, pumping macas, fun macas and everything in-between… Some beginner / intermediate surfers enjoying some waves at mini macas and Silabu left too… Something for everyone!
First time in Macaronis Resort history, not one macaronis wave on this weeks promo..!! Instead the group opted for the softer less surfed Silabu left, and heaps of spear fishing and snorkelling… Extremely laid back week!
This promo movie shows a little of what to expect when visiting Macaronis Resort. The interviews with guests were carried out on the week of the making of this promo movie with random customers, while the footage was bits and peaces taken over the whole season. Check it out...
A film compiled from Seba's best best movies in September and October, year 2010. Thanks Seba..!!
