Located in the Northern Mentawai Islands, Indonesia, 4 Bobs is a fun right-hander that offers up a bit of a warmup for those looking to get used to reef surfing. The walls here are usually short and a bit on the fatter side, great for ripping into. The waves here are easy to surf and break for up to 200 meters over a coral reef.
What are the best surf conditions for 4 Bobs?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is consistent (7/10) and will get busy at times (5/10). The best winds are from the North. The best swells are from the Southwest. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini year-round. Water temperatures rise to 29 degrees in the summer and drop to 25 only in the winter. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
