Looking for a truly luxurious trip to the Mentawai Islands? Well this Mentawai surf charter on board Maki Boat ticks all the boxes for an epic surf adventure with a huge splash of indulgence!
The 105 foot long Phinisi was originally a luxury dive boat in the Komodo Islands, but underwent a full refit in 2019 to become one of the most beautiful surf charters in the Mentawais!
With A/C throughout, 5 cabins and a maximum capacity of 12 surfers you’ll be spoilt for comfort and waves on this trip!
Cruising out from Padang you’ll enjoy 11 days of tropical surfing vibes out in the Mentawais with your new found surf crew, exploring empty breaks as well as more recognisable spots like Bankvaults, Kanduis, Beng Bengs and Ebays.
Your experienced crew will pick the best spots in the area, taking into account everyones style and skill level. The Mentawai Islands offer up something for everyone – fun playful walls, reeling reefs and of course those postcard perfect barrels everyone dreams of.
Sleeping near the lineup gives you the opportunity for a truly perfect dawn patrol session before the surf camps head out and you’ll surf until your arms can take no more!
And when you’re not in the water making the most of the perfection on offer kick back on the spacious 3 story deck, kick back with a cold Bintang and watch the waves, or enjoy the pics of the day over dinner.
What more could you ask for?
And of course if you have your own crew, why not indulge and book a private charter for up to 12 people? Chat to our surf expert for more details!
Padang Airport (Sumatra), Indonesia
The Mentawai Islands are famed for some of the best and most consistent surf breaks in the world – here are some of the spots that you’ll be a short walk or boat ride from…
Ebay – this is the surf camps home break, just 150m walk along the beach. A reeling left hander it can hold a variety of swell, even producing some barrel selections on the right conditions
Beng Beng – just a short boat trip from the camp in the next bay this left is super fun with a forgiving take off and long reeling lefts. One of our teams personal favourites.
Burger World – this long, reeling right hander is perhaps one of the most picturesque waves in the area – peeling off a beach filled with palm trees! Working in all conditions and suitable for all levels of surfer, if the wind and swell isn’t working at other spots Burger World will no doubt have a wave.
Good Times – one of the longest lefts in the area and often described as the mirror image of Burger World. When this spots working there’s plenty of space for big turns and even some cheeky cover ups.
Pit Stops – this wedgey right hander is just a 10 minute jungle or beach walk from the camp. Expect some barrel filled take off and long fun walls.
Bank Vaults – certainly one of the heavier and more advanced surf spots in the area expect big hollow barrels. It needs a bigger swell to start working, but when it does it can give you the ride of your life.
Nipussi – this fast and shallow right hander works in a variety of swell and wind making it a good alternative to Burger World. But given the right conditions this is also a super fun wave.
