You have seen the flawless waves in mags and vid’s… The Mentawai Islands attracts swell all year round with more perfect peeling left and right-handers in one region than anywhere on earth.
More than 70% of the waves in the Mentawais are accessible within an hour by speedboat from Aloita Resort. Right in their backyard only 10 minutes away are five well known consistent spots including Telescopes- their “go-to” wave. They also access other breaks such as Icelands, Scarecrows, Macaronis, H.T’s, Lances Left and the (additional charge) Playgrounds area. Mellower waves are also close by including a fun learners wave right at the end of Aloita Beach. For an optimum experience, they run a policy of maximum 14 surfers at any one time.
Situated roughly 100 km off the west coast of Sumatra on the equator, these pristine islands are amongst the most beautiful in the world with four large islands making up the Mentawai archipelago, surrounded by many smaller ones.
Crystal clear water, golden beaches and palm trees line the shores with classic reefs, point breaks and beach breaks, which offer waves for ALL standards of surfing ability.
Depending on the season, waves vary in size from 2 to 12 foot with the average wave height being about 4-5 ft. (head ½ high or 8ft faces) they can range anywhere from fun sized walls to awesome stand-up barrels.
The wet season starts in mid-October and lasts until late March-April, with the swells dropping to a more comfortable fun size coupled with some of the most uncrowded line-ups. Winds during this time are variable and glassy. Check for the low season specials during this period.
April is the beginning of dry season, which coincides with the start of the swell season. The Southern hemisphere swells start pulsing up the Indian Ocean with peak swell season being June through to September. This period also sees the winds turn to a favourable easterly direction.
Air and water temperatures range between 27-30 degrees C all year round.
