The Mentawai Islands has some of the best surf in the world. There are more perfect left and rights in one region than anywhere on earth. The Mentawais receive swell all year round with the most consistent season between March and November. Surf uncrowded waves at a large variety of reefs, beach breaks, point breaks and secluded bays.
Although there are waves year-round, and the “off” season has potential for un-crowded perfection, the best time of year is during the dry season. From around late March to early November, during the southern hemisphere’s winter, the Indian Ocean produces non-stop groundswells.
Consistent swells are generated in the roaring forties and arrive to Indo reef groomed perfection. Tropical, clear blue water and a wide selection of wave types accommodate skill levels from intermediate to pro.
