Sipura Island

Tikkus

An enjoyable, playful left near Villa Mentawai. On a big swell, this is a good, mellow option for intermediate level surfers or longboarders.

Omak Tidur

A long, slabbing right out the front of Awera Surf Resort with intense barrel sections on good days. This wave can be super challenging, and often seems surfable when it’s not. Always wait for the green light from your surf guide before attempting this one!

Telescopes

Ridiculously perfect left, easily accessible from Awera Surf Resort, Togat Nusa Retreat and Villa Mentawai. A user-friendly wave with multiple good sections for barrels or turns. Telescopes likes a SW swell with SE winds.

Iceland

Another swell magnet, this time a peak, that picks up any available swell. When Telescopes is big and pumping, Iceland can be 2-3 times bigger. A true big wave spot, this wave has been surfed at 20ft and is a great place for an adrenaline rush on your step up.

Suicides

A heavy and unpredictable left with gnarly barrels over a very shallow, live coral reef. When it links up, it’s a remarkable wave, suitable for advanced surfers only and definitely at high tide.

Promises

This is a challenging right hander suitable for advanced surfers chasing a novelty experience.

Twiggies

A good, sometimes hollow, usually uncrowded left hander, working best on a SW swell. Mostly suited for experienced surfers, as the wave can get shallow on the inside.

Hookers

A fickle wrap-around left that can be challenging. This wave needs a big swell to come to life, and is located nearby Villa Mentawai.

Arikis

A relatively under-the-radar right hander that’s fast and zippy breaking over shallow reef. Arikis can offer good barrel sections and is best at higher tide.

Scarecrows

A bowling left in front of Togat Nusa Resort. Scarecrows picks up a lot of swell, and on bigger, heavier days requires a bit of paddling and a bigger board. This wave can offer a good barrel on the inside section after some big carves on the outside.

7-Palms

Shifty lefts off random peaks. This spot, rarely crowded, picks up plenty of swell but can be hard to surf.

Bintangs

This wave is a short, powerful right-hand barrel that perks up quickly over a shallow section of reef. Amazing barrel on it’s day but a very short ride. Bintangs is visible from Kingfisher Surf Resort.

Monkeys Left

A playful, usually uncrowded left that picks up plenty of swell. Monkeys is one of many waves close by to Kingfisher Surf Resort.

Bintang Beachie

This wave is located on a long stretch of beach that runs from Kingfisher Surf Resort all the way to Bintangs. On small, short period swells this beachie can offer some playful peaks, and every now and then turns out to be something special.

Lance’s Left

A fun, super consistent left, straight out the front of Kingfisher Surf Resort where guests can watch perfection from the comfort of the pool bar or private bungalow. Lances Left has a good barrel section and enough space to link together some turns before kicking out.

Cobras

You’ll find Cobras at the top section of the Lances Left reef. This wave is a cylindrical barrelling left, shallow and often challenging but sometimes a better barrel than at Lances. This spot works best on S swells.

Lance’s Right (HTs)

This famed wave is positioned directly in front of Katiet Beach Resort. On it’s good days Lances Right is one of the best waves in Indonesia with flawless barrelling rights. To work best, the wave likes a confusing combination of W swell and W winds. When it turns on, it’s a mesmerising 8-second barrel from the office all the way to the channel.

The Bombie

A shallow section of reef in Katiet Bay, occasionally good on a longboard and an amazing wave for foiling.

 

Siberut Island (Playgrounds Area)

Nipussi

An easy, mellow right hander with a beautiful tropical backdrop. A good option if nearby Bankvaults is a bit too intimidating. Nipussi is best on a mid-size swell with light NNW winds.

Bankvaults

A powerful, challenging right hander. Expect an open ocean style take-off,  then an incredible, wide open barrel section. This wave suits experienced surfers only, as it ends up bending back over shallow reef. Bankvaults is best on a SSW swell and a N wind.

Pit Stops

A playful and rippable right hander with a sand and reef bottom. The wave breaks close to the shore, within paddle distance of Mentawai Surf Retreat. Pit Stops needs a WSW swell to get into the sheltered bay, and any wind except for N/NE. The wave is perfect for busting out some turns.

E-Bay

A beautiful, barrelling, and world-class left, with intense emerald green water, just a short paddle down from Pit Stops. E-Bay needs a big W/SW swell with SE winds to work. The bigger it gets, the better it gets. This is a truly magical wave!

Bang Bangs

A playful, user-friendly left that breaks further down in the bay from E-Bay and Pit Stops. Suitable for longboarders, funboards, and has a good section for some big turns.

Hideaways

A world-class hollow left hander that breaks directly in front of Wave Park Mentawai Resort. Hideaways picks up plenty of swell and offers incredible barrels for experienced surfers. This wave works best with a SW swell and SE wind on a higher tide.

Malibu

This novelty right hander, perfect for longboarders, runs down the side of a tiny sand island. A super scenic spot suitable for all levels.

The Secret Slab

A short, intense right-hand barrel. This wave is a good option on small swell.

Bikinis

A very mellow peak, perfect for longboarders or beginners.

Burger World

This long right-hand wave with a beautiful backdrop is considered the swell magnet of the Mentawai Islands and works best on a small 2-4ft SW swell with NNW winds. On bigger swells, the paddling required to hold position tends to prove not worthwhile. Burger World is a great wave for a relaxing surf together with some turns. Some surfers pack a fish or funboard specifically to surf at this spot.

A-Frames

A playful peak that’s mostly a left, a good wave for a couple turns.

Rifles

World-class right hander with multiple barrel sections over a reef so perfect it must have been designed for surfers. Rifles likes a big SSW swell and light WNW winds. This is considered one of the longest, most perfect waves in the Mentawai Islands.

4 Bobs

A playful, one-section right with an easy take-off. If you’re lucky, you’ll score a quick almond shaped barrel or a 2-turn combo.

Kandui Left

Incredible freight-train left out the front of Kandui Villas, with big, heavy barrels and long sections on good days. Here, there’s potential to get the best barrel of your life. Kandui Left likes a SW swell and E/SE winds on a mid to high tide.

Baby Kandui

A very mellow, playful left hander. Baby Kandui is great for beginners and long boarders, or a relaxed session for more advanced surfers looking to refine their skills or trial a new board or fin set up.

Pistols

A super fun right with short but good barrels, and nice sections for turns.
