Want to take your trip to the Mentawai Islands to the next level? Well it doesn’t get much more epic that a Mentawai Surf charter – and this trip on board the Sola Gracia with Mentawai Surf Co will deliver beyond your wildest dreams!
From the moment you step aboard the 23m luxury Mentawai surf charter in Padang you’re in for the trip of a lifetime.
Built for speed, comfort and stability the Sola Gracia will be your base to explore some of the best waves of your life – chasing the swell and dropping you off at the best lineups for the conditions of the day.
And yes…you’ll no doubt score some empty lineups with just your newly found surf crew!
Catering for up to 11 surfers the Sola Gracia is kitted out with all the creature comforts you’d expect from a luxury Mentawai surf charter – comfortable beds, plenty of chill out space (bean bags included!), 3 A/C quad share rooms and 10 cases of ice cold Bintangs!
Your experienced crew will guide you to the best waves for the day – scoring everything from charging barrels to fun, carevable walls depending on what you’re in the mood for. Enjoy being chauffeured to the lineup in the tinny and simply give your board a wave in the air when you’re surfed out and they’ll come collect you too.
This is surf tripping done right!
And with a world class photographer on board you’ll get some awesome snaps of your waves for full bragging rights when you get home – just chat to them on board for their range of photography packages.
As well as hitting up Mentawai favourites like Hideaways, Kandui, Bank Vaults and Beng Bengs you’ll also venture further afield and hit up spots the land based camps can’t reach – sleeping by the lineup so you’re the first to paddle out each morning.
Eat, sleep, surf repeat – that’s life aboard Sola Gracia, so when will you be joining?
And of course if you have your own crew, why not indulge and book a private charter for up to 11 people? Then you can choose from the Mentawais, Telos or Banyak Islands – 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.

I’ve been on a few boats in the Mentawai and had some bad experiences, however the Sola Garcia was not one of them. By far the best experience I’ve had. Owners and staff are all genuine and friendly and make it a priority of theirs to get you in the right spots and to make it a comfortable stay. Food is exceptional with plenty of variety, drinks are served cold. Unlimited amounts of chilli if you’re into your spice 🌶🌶And not to forget the first class photography available if you want some photos of your trip👌 Highly recommend Mentawai Surf Co
The only boat in the ments where the captain/surf guide froths as hard as it’s clients and constantly on the search to bring you uncrowded surf, the best food I’ve had out of any boat trip ready for you when ya come in ready to recharge, cold air conditioning, spacious rooms, great crew.. will not change boats again after experiencing this one! Go get barrelled
I had an unbelievable experience aboard the sola gracia… amazing hosts Guy and Gemma looked after us really well. Epic locations, amazing food every meal, endless smiles and laughter, good times had by all aboard. Sick boat, friendly crew. Eric and Gemma smashed it in the kitchen. With Guys experience and knowledge I have no hesitation to recommend this to any frothers out there looking for the ultimate boat trip.
