Surf Lessons we offer:

Beginner Surf Lessons

PITSTOPS
This is the right off the peak at E-Bay. A playful right that can offer some cover-ups off the take-off, but most a high performance wave with air sections at the end. Ends in sandy channels.
Ability Level:Intermediate. Best Size:2-4 ft. Consistency:6/10.

Intermediate Surf Lessons

E-BAY
This is a hollow left that barrels off the take off with a short wall down the line. A great option when a lot of swell is hitting. A hollow, fast and powerful left. A world class wave for experienced surfers. Watch out for the two rocks on the inside. Great barrels that turns into a surfing paradise at 6 feet offshore.


Waves by the Surf Camp and around the Playgrounds Area.

Level: All Levels

BENG BENGS
A very consistent world class wave with an extremely rippable left. This spot provides loads of fun and is probably the easiest wave to surf in our region. It’s the deepest and safest among all the waves in the area and it also pick up a bit more swell than the other local waves. Nestled inside a small bay with one of the most scenic imaginable views around you.
Ability Level:Beginner to Intermediate. Best Size:3 to 6 Ft. Consistency:3/10.

E to BAY
This is a hollow left that barrels off the take off with a short wall down the line. A great option when a lot of swell is hitting. A hollow, fast and powerful left. A world class wave for experienced surfers. Watch out for the two rocks on the inside. Great barrels that turns into a surfing paradise at 6 feet offshore. There is heavy warble and chances are that you will get a mean aqua blue barrel. The scenery alone will blow you away. Besides its aesthetic beauty, the double overhead E to bay is a beast and force to be reckon with.
Ability Level:Advanced. Best Size:4 to 8 ft. Consistency:5/10.

NIPUSSI
A short right, that breaks down the point from Bank Vault. Definitely fun and rippable. Usually has fairly deep water at the point from the take off to the inside. Ends in a riptide that sucks all the water back out to sea. A good option when there is no much swell and usually the most consistent spot in the area.
Ability Level: Beginner Intermediate. Best Size: Consistency:

PITSTOPS
This is the right off the peak at E to Bay. A playful right that can offer some cover to ups off the take to off, but most a high performance wave with air sections at the end. Ends in sandy channels.
Ability Level:Intermediate. Best Size:2 to 4 ft. Consistency:6/10.

BANK VAULTS
Is a thick barrelling right punctuated by shifting line up. Sets seemingly emerge out of nowhere and can wreak havoc if you are caught out of position. The ideal size to surf it is head–high to triple overhead, in any swell size, getting caught inside is certainly. Despite the dangers, snag a clean, open barrels here and you will be talking about it for years.
Ability Level:Advanced. Best Size;4 to 10 ft. Consistency:6/10.

OTHER WAVES IN THE PLAYGROUNDS AREA THAT CAN BE REACH BY A SHORT MOTOR BOAT ride FROM OUR CAMP:

4 BOBS
It is a short, playful right to hander swells that break here wrap considerably around the south end of the island and break over a relatively shallow reef. If you are fast you can take off deep and try to float the first section where most people take off, otherwise, its strictly a one or two turn wave. Ironically, despite its relatively tame appeal, 4 Bobs is a perennial favorite to almost every person who surf it and is one of the most consistent and fun waves.
Ability Level: Intermediate. Best Size;3 to 5 ft. Consistency:8/10

A FRAMES
Is one of the most consistent left in the Mentawai islands. Situated in front of an idyllic island, it is one of the many good waves found in Playground region. There are generally two sections to surf, the top and the inside. The peaks at the top can be a bit shifty and require a fair amount of paddling around to find the right area while the inside section is more dependable and offers up a better wall to work with. A frames is one of the most popular spots in the Mentawai’s.
Ability Level:Intermediate. Best Size:3 to 5 ft. Consistency:7/10.

RIFLES
It is one of the longest, most perfect, awe inspiring waves in the world. When it’s breaking properly with a hint of northwest wind you can expect four to six hundred yard right walls with numerous tube sections. Rifles is a violent barrels from start to finish, sometimes when you think you are coming out another section will throw over, and another. If you do come out and see it lining up. You have to put the pedal to the metal to make it through the next barrels section. Surfer Magazine dubbed Rifles the 6th best wave in the world.
Ability Level:Advanced. Best Size:6 to 8 ft. Consistency:6/10.

KANDUI
Is one of the fastest, down the line, left hand barrels in the world. Kandui is an obscenely hollow wave with your only option for survival being tucked inside its enormous, gaping jaws. Unless you’re comfortable pumping inside the barrel the best you can hope for is to find the right line, extra front foot pressure, and hold on. Most the waves will simply outrace you however, the thrill of charging through the longest barrel possible is more than worth the effort. If the conditions are right, you’ll take your share of beatings but chances are you will kick out of the best barrel of your life as well.
Ability Level:Advanced to Expert. Best Size:4 to 8ft. Consistency:5/10.

KARAMBA
Lies smack dab in the middle of playgrounds. It breaks best on a direct south swell and fairly straightforward wave for people of all abilities. The wave itself runs almost exactly one hundred yards over a shallow.perpective.
Ability Level:Beginner to Intermediate. Best Size:2 to 4 ft. Consistency:6/10.

BURGERWORLD
Is consider the last alternative when everywhere else is flat. Anything bigger than three feet here flattens out into a mush to ball, the positive aspect of Bugerworld is that there always something to ride here. Even though it’s not a premiere wave, it is a fun alternative when everywhere else isn’t breaking.
Ability Level:Intermediate. Best Size:2 to 3 ft. Consistency:4/10.

HIDEWAYS
It is an occasionally heavy left near the playgrounds region that is frequently visited. In the last few years it has been one of the “go to” waves because it is a lot more consistent than the other world class waves in the area and can handle more annoying wind directions like straight south. Hideways has ability to be a sick cavern or offer up rippable shoulder. You can really surf it on medium high tide, at low tide it sticks out of the water and unless you like reef cuts, stay away.
Ability Level:Intermediate to Advanced. Best :4 to 8ft. Consistency:8/10.
