The Mentawai Islands are one of the most consistent surf destinations in the entire world. It's broad exposure towards the vast, southern Indian Ocean provides these majestic islands with remarkable consistency and quality. There are great waves in this area YEAR-ROUND, because the Indian ocean is the most ultra-active, groundswell producing machine in the world. During the entire year Saraina Koat Mentawai offers the average surfer the opportunity to score the best waves of their lives on the best local boats operating in the Mentawai Islands. The best time of year to come to avoid crowds is October-February, because most people are under the misconception that this time of the year has no waves, and extreme weather, but this is false. Because of Mentawai islands proximity in relation to the equator the islands are virtually uneffected by the monsoons which greatly effect other areas of Indonesia. The Indian oceans relentless generation of clean swells year round, and the wheather in the islands makes for year round epic surf, and conditions.

In an effort to minimize the exploitation of this sovereign area we have compiled a brief glimpse of seventeen well-known Mentawai Islands surf spots. There are an astonishing number of additional spots which offer an abundance of hollow, glassy barrels constantly evolving around the various moods of the ocean; however, the most important element in the Mentawai Islands experience is that overwhelming feeling of discovery and finding these perfect waves on your own.

strives to maintain an educational, visual, and accurate website. We pride ourselves in delivering, what we think, is one of the best surfing related websites available; at the very least one of the best surf travel sites out there. This photo gallery section, and our entire site in general, is a constant work in progress and would not be possible without the talent and generosity of our guests and friends that contribute their work for us to display. Three people, in particular, have really made our website what it is today; these people are Brian Nevins, Sebastian Imizcoz, and Dave Collyer. Through their images and vision we're able to show our visitors an intimate look into not only the phenomenal waves the Mentawai Islands are known for, but perhaps more importantly, the culture and overall experience a trip to the Mentawai Islands encompasses. We hope you enjoy their photos as much as we do; thanks guys.
