All Mentawai Surf Charters start & end in Padang.

Usually around 11 days in length, trips have set dates (as standard) but in the "off season", dates can be flexible.

Charter boat capacity ranges from 6 guests up to 14 guests. Ideally suited for large groups to book out the whole boat, there are also options for any size group - as well as single guests.

Each trip will visit the main 4 surfing regions (Playgrounds, North Sipora, South Sipora & Pagai) where surfers will have the chance to surf the Mentawais best waves including KanduiHideawaysTelescopesRiflesLances LeftHT'sMacaronis and Greenbush to name but a few!

The surf guide will always discuss the options with the group prior to departure (from Padang) so the group can make a call on where they'd prefer to surf.

Telos Surf Charters 
usually start & end in Padang or Gunung Sitoli, Nias.

Charter boat capacity ranges from 6 guests up to 14 guests. Ideally suited for large groups to book out the whole boat, there are also options for any size group - as well as single guests.

Surf charters will always navigate around the whole of the Telo Islands with the option of spending part of the trip in the Playgrounds (Mentawai) region if the group would prefer (and if the boat departs from Padang - not Gunung Sitoli). 

The surf guide will always discuss the options with the group prior to departure (from Padang or Gunung Sitoli) so the group can make a call on where they'd prefer to surf.
