Do yourself a favor and watch this before you come to the Mentawai Islands.
Scattered off the western coast of Sumatra, the Mentawai Islands are home to some of the best waves the world has to offer. Year-round swells up to 15 feet, perfect left and right handers, together with pristine island landscapes, have turned this paradise into one of the ultimate surf meccas.
It's warm waters are home to both reefs and point breaks, with plenty of secluded bays and unchartered territory where you can search for waves far from the crowds. Whether you’re basing yourself at one of its tailor-made surf camps or embarking on an epic surf charter to access its most remote corners, the Mentawai Islands won’t disappoint even the most widely travelled surfer.
