Surf Orca Laut

Led by expert surf guide Tim Everingham, who boasts extensive local knowledge from his 22 years in the Mentawais, including 14 years with the renowned Indies Trader brand under Martin Daly, guests are in for a treat. Tim’s expertise ensures that you often reach the waves before anyone else, providing exclusive access to high-quality surf. 

Tim’s dedication to his guests is unmatched. He consistently seeks out less crowded spots, leveraging his deep understanding of the region to uncover hidden surfing gems unknown to others. This commitment makes every surf charter with Tim an opportunity to enjoy some of the world’s best waves in near solitude. 

The prime surfing season in the Mentawai Islands extends from March to October, most ideal for advanced surfers looking for challenging waves, although also catering to advanced beginners and intermediate-level surfers especially during the quieter off-season months.
