Aloita Resort & Spa Indonesia Surf Camp Program

The main attraction of the Mentawai has always been the surf. Aloita Resort & Spa surf guides will take you into the best waves of your life. Whether you’re a learner or total hellman, Aloita has something great to offer you.

Every day, the surf guides receive constantly updated surf forecasts and will make recommendations based on the swell, the wind, and your desires and surfing skills. One day, you may decide to take a day trip to the Playground Area to the north, for waves such as Rifles, Four Bobs, Nokandui, Nipussi, or Bankvaults. You may also want a trip south to the Peninsula area for waves such as Bintangs, Lances Left, or HTs.

There are so many options to choose from, and Aloita Resort & Spa surf guides always consult the needs and desires of the guests to come to a group decision about what is the best call for the day.

Instructors

Dan Hill
Dan attended Raglan Surf Academy during his final year of school. In addition to surfing, Dan is also a passionate snowboarder, having spent 6 months as a snowboard instructor in Squaw Valley (Lake Tahoe), USA. He also enjoys travel in general, having visited such surf locales such as Australia, New Caledonia, and Sri Lanka.

Location

This surf camp will be held in Mentawai Islands Regency, West Sumatra, Indonesia. Your surfing sessions will take place in the vicinity of Aloita Resort & Spa, including Telescopes, Ombak Tidur, Icelands, Hookers, Tikus, G4, Muka Ikan and Twiggies and once a day Scarecrows, Frankos, Diablo and Seven Palms.

Roughly 70% of the waves in the Mentawai Islands can be accessed within an hour by speedboat from Aloita Resort & Spa, and some of the best ones are right in their backyard. For example, the world class lefthander Telescopes is only 10 minutes away, and many people feel that it offers longer and straighter barrels than Macaronis when it’s firing. There are challenging waves like Icelands, rippable waves like Scarecrows, and even a couple very playful secrets that break right off our island.
