Surf Gypsy Laut

The Mentawai Islands, discovered by surfers in the 1990s, have since become a pivotal destination in surf travel. This chain of roughly 70 islands off Sumatra’s West Coast is renowned for its density of perfect waves, offering more quality breaks per square mile than any other location.

With more than 50 recognised surf spots, including notable breaks like Hollow Trees, Macaronis, Rifles, and Green Bush, the Mentawai Islands cater to every surfer’s dream. The geographical spread and isolation of these islands means that boat access is essential for surfers.

With two tenders available for use on Gypsy Laut, guests have ample opportunity to explore a variety of waves.  


Surf Guides

Onboard Gypsy Laut, guests benefit from the expertise of the very experienced skipper and surf guide, Chris Love. Chris will ensure that you are at the best waves for the conditions, tailoring each surf session to match the group’s skills and preferences. With his in-depth knowledge of the surf and region, Chris will guide you to the most optimal spots, enhancing your wave count and surf session quality. 

Non-Surf Activities

While surfing is the highlight on Gypsy Laut, a variety of non-surf activities is offered onboard to enrich your surf holiday. Fishing and snorkeling gear are readily available for guests looking to explore the vibrant marine life or reel in the catch of the day.

Additionally, with the use of the tenders, you can embark on island excursions or snorkeling adventures, allowing you to discover the beauty of the Mentawai Islands. These activities offer a perfect balance to your surfing holiday, ensuring there’s never a dull moment on Gypsy Laut.
