Isolated 150km off the western coast of Sumatra, traveling to the Mentawai’s is an awe-inspiring adventure. With its turquoise waters, pristine white sand beaches, lush rainforest, and waves so perfect you’d swear they were manufactured; the Mentawai islands can only be described as a paradise that will leave you speechless. Located on Nyang Nyang Island in the Northern Mentawai region, often referred to as “Playgrounds”, the villa is situated on the point of Ebay, one of the best lefts in the Mentawai’s and an easy 47 second (yes, seconds!) walk from your front door. Eleven days in paradise will be spent surfing to your hearts content in one of the most coveted surf destinations in the world.
Due to their position in the Indian Ocean the Mentawai Islands offer consistent surf all year round. The islands are exposed to swells from pretty much every direction, but there are 3 different seasons to consider. High season runs May to September, shoulder seasons run March to April and October to November. And low season runs December to February, but don’t be fooled by the word “low”. The Mentawai’s are world renowned for advanced-intermediate to advanced surfing. To give those who fall into the advanced-beginner and intermediate categories a chance at the Ments, we’ve opted to run this expedition in December. Coming straight off shoulder season, large swells are less common, but you will find more small, perfect waves than you could surf in a year. Empty line-ups and amazing weather will offer most beginners and intermediates an incredible surfing experience.
