Coming to the Mentawai Islands on a surf trip is a truly remarkable adventure. It encompasses every surfers desire and it checks all the boxes. Vivid backgrounds, perfect waves breaking over warm water, fully decorated reef, friends, beer, & paradise. Frankly, this place is the ultimate frontier when it comes to the epic adventure everyone dreams of. The cultural reflection blends in perfectly with smiling faces, pleasant views and untouched nature. People come here to find themselves, to define what it is they signify as traveling watermen, and most of all, to contemplate and absorb the passion that embraces these small islands in the Indian Ocean.
Every single step is a memory. The journey itself is a reminder that there are no coincidences. No two waves are equal. Many times, the only companion is the ocean, the jungle, and the mist. The language ‘barrier’ is rather playful mimicry. The interaction with the people and the place resembles an elegant dance. The pace is smooth, gentle and graceful. Visiting the Mentawai Islands is like a dream, often making travelers return time and time again to assure themselves this place is in fact real, not a joke from the deepest levels of our subconscious. The only risk is wanting to stay longer.
