Out the Front
Nipussi is a wave for all surfing levels its a high performance long right hander with plenty of wall for multiple maneuvers & being the most consistent wave in the Mentawai region assures us we can guarantee you waves everyday of your trip, hands down.
Bankvaults which is also in front of camp is a favorite for those of you chasing big heavy barrels and something a lot more serious a long heaving right that handles any where from 2 foot to 20+ foot.
MIA Peak (30m walk from Bungalow 2) is a short punchy A to frame that can deliver stand up left hand pits on its day and a longer fun right.
Piggy Banks & the Klit both heavy slabs super sucky mainly for advanced surfers and body boarders, will deliver amazing barrels and photographs.
We cater for all surfing skill levels, we also have amazing snorkeling/spearfishing for in between surfs/non to surfers, beautiful spots to sun to bake, walking trails, darts, board games, projector for movies, soccer, cricket etc etc & and an ATV motorbike to buzz around on.

In the south of Sipora you will find the well known surf breaks Lances left and Right. Lances Left is super fun and playful with a barrel section in the middle. It's beautiful turquoise water and perfect shape make it among the most photographed waves in the world, and one of the easiest to get barreled.Lances Right on the other hand is shallow, short, and advanced level only.
South are the twin islands of Pagai Utara & Pagai Selatan. One of the worlds most famous waves Macaronis lies off Pagai Utauru. This ultra consistent left is a perfect deep barrel on the first section and then backs off to into a really fun wall.
