Exceptional Surf Trip

By James McMahon, 16th May 2015

I just returned to LA from a 10-day trip at Togat Nusa and I can certainly say it was well worth the days of travel it took to get to the island! Hands down the most beautiful place I have ever visited. Ticks all the boxes if you want to relax, enjoy nature and score epic warm water waves.

Nestled amongst the palm trees on Pitojat Island, Togat Nusa Retreat truly is a magical place. A private, tropical island sanctuary perfect for those looking to escape, relax & unwind. Its location in the surf rich Mentawai Islands chain offers an abundance of waves, especially lefts! A small resort, catering for only 8 guests at a time, the focus is on service and friendly vibes.

The retreat is blessed with a very consistent and extremely good left hander called Scarecrows that breaks a short distance from its shores. Several world class waves are also reachable within a short speedboat ride including the world famous left hander Telescopes.

Guests are able to travel to the resort on a set schedule with 10, 11 and 12 day trips available from February until November. Ideal for intermediate and advanced surfers – the resort is particularly suited for small groups, families or couples looking for a unique surf and yoga orientated tropical surf vacation.

surf boat

Included in the daily surfer rate are your daily boat rides;

Morning Surf session: typically 6.30am - 8.30am until 12pm
Afternoon surf session typically 2.30pm - 3pm until 6pm

Every guest will have daily boat rides to the surf included in their package. The first session will depart Togat Nusa between 6.30am and 8am depending on what’s agreed the evening before. Guests will return back to base for lunch, usually by 12pm. The afternoon surf departs around 2-3pm and returns back about 30 minutes before dark. The decision on where to surf will depend on the surf guide and what the group/majority would like to do. Guests can surf Scarecrows any time of day they like too. 

There are 2 boats available for our guests. The main boat is a traditional dugout canoe, powered by two 40 horsepower Yamaha engines that will transfer you safely to and from the surf at speeds of up to 20 knots. Built locally, this style of boat is designed for travel in local waters and whilst the ride can sometimes be a little wet, the length and shape of the hull helps it cut efficiently through the surf for a smoother ride than a western style speedboat.

Our drivers are experienced boatmen, growing up in the islands and around boats all their lives. As well as containing all the required safety gear, the boat has a cooler with cool drinks, a large roof and padded seats with backrests, ensuring guests are comfortable and protected from the sun during travel or when taking breaks between sessions.

Togat Nusa’s 9m aluminium speedboat is also used locally but will always be used when heading off for further missions north and south. Complete with a cabin & powered by 2 x 200 hp Suzuki engines the boat is equipped with GPS, radio and safety equipment. All missions to playgrounds or HT’s will be an additional charge of USD$ 300 / day for up to 8 guests.

Accidents

The staff are trained to assist you with first aid. If necessary, we can stitch you up at the resort. If injured guests want go back to Padang before the trip ends, we can organise this for you. If it’s very serious, we’ll contact your travel insurance company for further instruction.

Tsunami

The area is situated within an active seismic plate. The retreat takes this threat seriously (although unlikely) and has an evacuation plan ready in case of emergency.

Malaria

Although contracting Malaria is extremely unlikely - we advise all guests to contact their local doctor prior to travel.

Mentawai Fast Ferry

You'll be collected from your hotel and taken to the ferry port the next morning around 6.00am. The port is very close to where the hotels are found - it's just a short 5-10 minute ride.

Crossing times are subject to weather conditions and delays can happen.

On return, guests will depart the resort around lunchtime (with the speedboat) to take the Ferry at 2pm. The arrival time in Padang will be approx 6pm. Our staff member will transfer you to your hotel as well as the airport the next morning. (Hotel and meals in Padang are not included.)

Speed Boat - from Padang to the resort directly

A private speedboat is available (as an alternative to the fast ferry) - for crossing for groups of up to 12 surfers, starting from around USD 1,550 (tbc). The boat will head straight to the retreat and the crossing time usually takes 3 to 5 hours. This is always done in the morning; however the crossing can be postponed due to weather conditions.

"Rubber time"

Indonesian transport is renowned for being erratic, with this in mind delays and re-scheduling are an everyday reality concerning public transportation. We will do our best to get you where you need to be asap, but take no responsibility for delays or cancellations due to external circumstances.

Whatever you bring, make sure you to pack light & within the baggage restrictions on your air ticket. Airlines are becoming more stringent & do impose hefty charges for excess baggage. Here’s a summary of what to bring:

 

Passport valid for at least 6 months from date of departure and must have at least 1 completely blank page (no stamps, nothing)

 

Tickets & itinerary

 

Travel insurance policy

 

Cash – change $500 minimum per two weeks stay into Indonesian Rupiah (IDR).

 

For more information, including which surf equipment, personal items & first aid to bring, please check out our Travel Essentials page

The best advice we can offer regarding packing your bags is to pack as lightly as possible. The following list is divided into two categories: In the Water and Out of the Water. It was created to give you ideas and help you keep track of items you may or may not need to bring on your adventure.

In the Surf

big wave leash (1)
mid sized leash (3)
leash ropes (6)
board shorts (3)
fin keys (2) best to use future fin keys, because they are stronger
fin sets (2) for each surf board
snug fitting T-shirt for sun protection (2). T-shirts work better than rash guards because they retain water, which keeps you cool, and they also give less rash than a ‘rash guard’
reef booties are recommended for several of the surf spots. When choosing your reef booties, it is best to select a pair that is snug fitting, or they will inhibit your surfing
snorkelling gear (optional. rental gear will be available)
surfboards (2-3). 
surf hat (optional)
sunblock
surf board wax (5) The kind of wax that works best in Mentawai is Mr. Zoggs Quick Humps 6x tropical or base coat. Since the ocean is so hot here, Tropical Wax gets too soft, and slippery
wax comb

What surf boards should I bring?

Mid sized boards are what gets used most, but best to bring whatever you are used to riding.

Don’t be surprised if you ding up your surf boards and maybe even break a few of them on your vacation. Last, but not least, a ding repair kit, or some sun cure resin for quick fixes is a must.

Out of the Surf

airline tickets
airline tickets (copy)
binoculars (optional)
cash (crisp, new bills)
comb or brush (optional)
credit cards
ding repair kit / sun cure resin
driver’s license
driver’s license (copy)
220 volt-110 volt electricity adapter (optional)
sunglasses
long sleeve t-shirt
malaria medication (optional)
moisturizer (optional)
mosquito repellent (optional)
surf board coffin travel bag
nail clippers (optional)
pain medicine (optional)
light weight pants (2)
passport
passport (copy)
prescription medicine (optional)
sandals
sealable ziploc bags for cameras, etc on the surfing excursions
shaving cream
shaving kit
shoes
walking shorts (2)
silica gel (for inside ziploc bags)
socks (3)
t-shirts (4-5)
toothbrush
toothpaste
travel backpack
visa (if necessary)
visa (copy)
waterproof jacket (optional)

The most important thing to remember on this list is to make sure that you have an updated passport and a valid VISA for entering Indonesia, and you will not be permitted to enter Indonesia if your passport is going to expire within six months from the time of your departure. Most people can take care of their VISA upon entering Indonesia including citizens of the United States and Australia but before you purchase your airline tickets please check with your local authorities to make sure you’re covered

Wave Quality: World Class
Wave Direction: Left
Also Known As: Tellies
Experience: Intermediate
Consistency: Inconsistent
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 10-30 surfers
Season: April until October

One of the crown jewels of the Mentawais, Telescopes is a world class lefthander that suits a wide range of skill levels and always seems to have something fun to offer. Tellies breaks on a variety of different swells, but it really thrives on is a decent sized west swell. If it’s firing, you can tuck right in after the takeoff and line up a long, straight barrel. Even if you’re really deep, the barrel typically ejects you out onto a part of the reef that gives you multiple opportunities to whack it off the top, until you hit the Monkey’s Corner on the inside, a bend in the reef that hooks back at you providing a great opportunity for a second solid tube. Even when Tellies is small or has a bit more south in it, it’s still an extremely rippable wave. It suits natural foots as well as goofy foots because of the easy entry and clean readable walls. The reef isn’t too sharp and there are certainly areas you can “play it safe”. 

Wave Quality: Very Good
Wave Direction: Left
Also Known As: The Ice
Experience: Intermediate
Consistency: Very
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 5-20 surfers
Season: Year round

Icelands is a great lefthander that basically has two completely different personas: Small Swell Icelands and Big Swell Icelands. When everywhere else in the area is flat, you can still pull up to Icelands and there will be a head-high, cruisey, rippable wall. But when a big west swell hits, Icelands turns into a monster with barrels big enough to drive the speedboat through. A deep ledge outside the normal take off zone causes the swell to lift in a way it doesn’t do on smaller days, and allows you to get in with a fairly easy drop. The wave then rolls into a horseshoe shaped section where the wave bends onto itself and throws out a big, thick barrel section that spits nearly every time. Icelands is definitely one of the few (and best) true big wave spots in the Mentawais.

Wave Quality: Good
Wave Direction: Right
Also Known As: The Sleeper
Experience: Intermediate
Consistency: Very
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 5-20 surfers
Season: Year round

If you’re caught inside on a decent sized west swell, you’ll think there’s nothing sleepy about this wave at all. Just down the reef from Icelands, this right hander picks up nearly as much swell and can be a fun option when the wind has a bit more north in it. The wave is actually a series of different right hand sections that can look like firing J-Bay from a distance, but up close reveals breaks in the reef and several different surfable sections. The peak at the top is often the most predictable, and can chuck out fast walls and the odd pit as it shifts along the reef. Just try to pick the right section, because if you pick the wrong wave on the first wave of a set, you could be in for a loooong paddle, as the reef never seems to have a shoulder when you’re trying to make it back out. 

Wave Quality: Good
Wave Direction: Right
Also Known As: Ariks
Experience: Intermediate
Consistency: Average
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 5-15 surfers
Season: Year round

With a North wind and large South West swell, Ariks can offer an extremely long barrel that barely relents along a shallow reef pass. On less than perfect days, it can be a fun, whackable right, that tapers off easily into the channel. Just a short distance from Ombak Tidur, Ariks prefers a higher tide even under the tamest looking of conditions. Reef booties are a good idea even when it’s soft, because it has some nasty coral that can actually be more problematic the smaller it is. Holds size well and is one of the few local options when the winds blow from the North.

Wave Quality: Very Good
Wave Direction: Left
Also Known As: Scarecrows
Experience: Intermediate
Consistency: Consistent
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 5-15 surfers
Season: Year round

One of the least hyped up waves, Scarecrows is a super consistent left, located off a beautiful tropical island. Its neighbouring wave Telescopes gets all the plaudits while this superb left often gets overlooked especially when the surf gets bigger. The wave has several easy entry take off spots, so it holds and spreads out a crowd very well. Scarecrow’s certainly has many faces but during the main season it will offer quality waves on a daily basis. Rides of over 200 yards can be had quite consistently with its end section “The Curry Bowl” delivering a tasty inside barrel. As with most breaks in the area, the wave is surfed ideally on a fuller tide. 

Wave Quality: Good
Wave Direction: Left
Also Known As: Ulars
Experience: Intermediate
Consistency: Consistent
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 5-15 surfers
Season: Year round

When the Indian Ocean’s mechanical swell machine doesn’t deliver much swell, then 7 Palm point is certainly a great option. A fun, walled up, down the line left hander, rides can be up to 200 yards long. Surfers can enjoy memorable sessions especially when it’s around shoulder to head high. Another year round reef break just round the corner from Scarecrows. If you surfed here in the off season, you’d probably surf it alone.

Wave Quality: Good Fun
Wave Direction: Left
Also Known As: The Rat
Experience: All levels
Consistency: Average
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 0-10 surfers
Season: April until October

Found just a 10 minute stroll around the corner from Aloita Resort, these 2 neighbouring waves are suitable for all levels. Both offer fun little lefthanders with the occasional steeper sections. You can paddle to Fish Face in about 5 minutes from The Rat, and it’s even more suited for beginners. It’s a little less perfect than The Rat, but the wave faces are forgiving and not too steep. This is certainly a great option for learners or those looking for a cruisey, crowd free surf session. Both of these waves also manage a South wind really well.

Wave Quality: Good
Wave Direction: Left
Also Known As: Suicides
Experience: Advanced
Consistency: Average
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 0-10 surfers
Season: April until October

The name says it all. A full throttle, heal to the steel, freight train barrel. A fairly fickle spot, Suicides is a fast unforgiving barrel suitable only for experts. Offering perfection from time to time, even then you’ll rarely surf with anyone else. When a solid ground swell is running most surfers will simply cruise past the line-up, opting for the less consequential waves in the vicinity. 

Wave Quality: Good
Wave Direction: Left
Also Known As: Twiggies
Experience: Advanced
Consistency: Average
Wave Type: reef
Crowd: 0-10 surfers
Season: April until October

Another high tide spot, Twiggies is a fun wave to check, especially if Telescopes is looking crowded or a bit funky. Twiggies has two distinct faces – that depend largely on the swell direction. West Swells offer heavier walled up barrels where as a South swell will hug the reef, offering some fast workable walls. Certainly less intense than Suicides, surfers still need to watch the inside section that can catch you out from time to time.
