Activities

These islands are blessed with some of the most consistent, user friendly surf in the world. From a-walk-in-the-park beginner waves to the suicide waves only the real-pro could tackle. There’s something for everyone here !
The Mentawai Islands offer some of the best surf to be found anywhere on earth. These islands attract swells all year round with the most consistent season generally being between March and November.
Even today you still have the opportunity to surf not crowded waves as this area keeps producing quality line ups which are scattered amongst a vast array of reefs, point breaks and secluded bays.
On a world scale, the Mentawai Islands has a 91% chance of scoring epic waves, compared with Hawaii (76%) and Australia around 80%.
Yes, Mentawai is a surfers’ paradise. There’s a LOT of surf spot all around these islands with a thousand waves everyday.
Some of the waves have names given by the first surfers who ride it. And usually they name the waves by the characteristics of the waves, so here we got beng beng, jendi’s left, bankvault, ebay, pitstop, nipussi and many more.
Beng beng
A rippable left, probbably one of the most fun waves to surf in mentawai islands and it’s good for surfers of all ability levels. It sits nestled inside a small bay with literally one of the most imaginative scenic views around you.
Nipussi
High performance right hander located inside a reef-laden cove. Most surfers line up at the top of the point and surf a solid wall that hugs the inside, during the west swell some surfers prefer to sit and wait for the swinger sets which break in the middle of the cove.
Burgerworld
This is a mushy pointbreak-like righthander. Can offer barrels at times, but usually long rippable walls with many cutback sections.
Ebay
This is a hollow left that barrels off the take-off with a short wall down the line. A great option when a lot of swell is hitting.
Pitstop
This is the right off the peak at E-Bay. Usually a playful right that can offer some cover-ups off the take-off, but mostly a high performance waves with air sections at the end. Ends in a sandy channel.
Bankvaults
A heavy righthander that barrels and spits. Usually larger than most spots in the area. Watch out for clean-up sets.
Hideaways
A very hollow left that can be shalow at times. It comes out of deep water, then unloads on a shallow section of reef before barreling towards the channel. Can get very shallow at low tides.
Jendi’s left
A long barrelling left that can turn while you inside.
4 Bob
Mainly a right with a short barrel off the takeoff, but quickly dies off into the channel. There’s an even shorter left, but usualy not worth the effort.
Rifles
One of the best waves in the Mentawai. A very long righthander that wraps around the other side of the same island as No Kanduis. Rarely makeable from start to finish, but even just from section to section you can get rides up to 100 meters or longer. Nice and hollow once it’s a few feet overhead, but usually more sectiony at smaller sizes.
Secret spot
We will take our guests to local secret surf spot if we get the supporting weather and swell direction.

The island of Siberut is inhabited by the Mentawai people, one of the pure indigenous Indonesian societies. They have had very little contact with the outside world and so have continued to live a fairly primitive form of life compare with the life standard of the present day.

The Mentawaians live in the jungle villages and have to rely on the jungle for their food, clothing and medicine. On our trek we will join the Mentawaians on their daily trip to jungle to see how they make their life, how they gather their foods, clothes, medicines, poisons for their primitive weapons like spears and arrows, learn the differences of the trees, plants, and how they use their primitive equipments.

Trekking through the wet and muddy Mentawai jungle is truly a once in a lifetime experience, Imagine swims on the tropical river, swings on vines, soaked in mud baths and sings the traditional songs along the way. Don’t worry it’s not too strenuous so you don’t have to be too fit to trek the Mentawai jungles !

… The more you try to interact and communicate with the locals, the more you will learn and the more satisfaction you will get.

One of the most important thing to remember when trekking in Siberut is : what you give is what you get…

The more you try to interact and communicate wit the locals, the more you will learn and the more satisfaction you will get. Even though there maybe a language barrier at the first, don’t be hesitate to communicate with other ways like hand signs, songs or anything understandable. Once you get in touch with them, they will take you to explore their environments, their uma, their jungle and you’ll never know what you will find! You will be surprised to know that the Mentawaians are very responsive and extremely friendly.
