M.I.A Mentawai Surf Camp
Barefoot living amongst some incredible waves

If you’re looking for a Mentawai surf camp with some truly world-class waves right out front then M.I.A Mentawais is a solid choice!

This laid back, barefoot-style surf camp in the Mentawai Islands has 5 epic spots right out front, and a further 25 surf breaks within a short boat transfer.

Catering for up to 8 surfers, M.I.A Mentawai surf camp has the famous Bankvaults just a short stroll away and you can see the reeling barrels from the camp itself and one of the most consistent and fun waves in the area – NiPussi – is also just a short paddle away too.

Relax post-surf at your beachfront bungalow (each with its own private en-suites), with the cooling sea breeze and palm trees immersing you in the full, off the beaten track of surfing in the Mentawais, a dream surf destination for wave chasers from around the world.

In-house surf guides Dicko and Stuart will make sure you know where the best waves of the day are, so whether you want playful walls or dredging barrels they’ll make sure you’re paddling out at the right place.

Your chef for your stay – Angel – will keep you well-fuelled, with a mixture of Indonesian and Western-style dishes, and watching the sunset with a cold Bintang in hand is going to be the ideal way to finish the day!

With a mix of packages to suit all budgets – we recommend the all-inclusive option to make the most of all the waves on offer in the area –  M.I.A surf camp is a perfect choice for those looking for an epic Mentawai surf trip.

Ferry Schedule

The Mentawai Fast Boat is a ferry which takes around 3-6 hours (depending on the day) and departs for Siberut 

  • Cost = $22USD
  • Boards = $22USD (up to 16kg), but you can pay for extra


  • Tuesday and Saturday departs Padang @ 7am, with a 6 hour journey
  • Thursday is departs Padang at 7am but only takes 3 hours as it goes direct


  • Departs Siberut at 3pm on Tuesday and Saturday, arriving into Padang at 6:30pm
  • Thursday the 12pm departure arrives into Padang at 6:30pm too as it’s not direct.

With that in mind it’s always best to arrive and depart Padang a day before your booked trip.

Had a great trip up at MIA for 11 nights and I can’t praise Stuart enough for being an epic manager/ surf guide / photographer/ chef / great guy. He really made our trip. The view from the camp is unbeatable, situated right on Nipussi which is the most consistent wave in the playgrounds area. My buddy and I scored the camp to ourselves the whole time and often were the only ones out in the line up. We took the boat for several days as well and Stu made some great calls on uncrowded spots to surf – dogs reef, A frames, burger world and good times. There are plenty of waves to suit all abilities. The only negatives were the lack of food options and the power outage from 11pm to 7am on the hot nights without a fan. Most nights were cool enough though and the rate is deeply discounted so I don’t want to come down too hard given the circumstances.
The local staff are all great and I’d 100% go back again. Highly recommended and hopefully be back up there again this year.
