Macaronis, more commonly referred to as Macas, is a mechanical left-hander that has been described by many as being the most high performance wave in existence. In glassy or off-shore conditions 4 – 6 second barrels are manageable from the take off, while the inside section is a bit like a skaters half-pipe where you can do countless numbers of Rio’s, tail-slides, floaters, airs, and cut-backs. Check-out one of the best maneuvers ever pulled at Macas by Jordy Smith.
Macas is such a fun wave to surf even in onshore conditions, and is one of the few reef breaks in the world that continues to break well in all tides. Macas holds from 2 – 8 feet and technically doesn’t get any bigger than this; it just becomes more hollow and round.
The greatest thing about Macas is its consistency, and that it breaks slightly different at each stage of the tide with varying west – south swell directions. Generally a south west ground swell will cause Macaronis to break most mechanically, lining up all the way down the reef. Macas is surfable all day long in a variety of on-shore and off-shore conditions, in fact some actually prefer Macas to have a slightly on-shore SW breeze on it, as it makes the wave so damn fun and rippable.
In 2003, Waves Magazine conducted a survey poll of 50 of the world’s best surfers and industry figureheads in order to rank the world’s best waves purely for their enjoyment value. Macas ranked 1 in the world in that survey. In fact 76% of all surveyed, “goofy and natural footers agreed; Macaronis is the most fun wave they have ever ridden” (Waves magazine, December 2003 edition).
