You will be staying in private or shared villa for four adults at Bilou Beach Villas. The Bilou Beach Villas are a successful beach villa concept in the Mentawais. These traditional-styled Mentawai beach front villas open onto a private secluded beach.

Each spacious villa includes: two bedrooms en-suite, third loft room upstairs, fully fitted kitchen - equipped with gas hob and fridge with inside dining, lounge, wrap around decks with sea facing terrace, comfortable outside furniture and dining, inside and outside showers, board racks, private cabana and beach chairs 20 meters in front of your villa, view of the waves on your doorstep, snorkeling and stand up paddling right out front, private boat, and private surf guide/driver. The villas also have the highest "green" rating, being 100% off the grid and powered only by solar panels.

​%Bilou Beach Villas, Awera Island, Mentawai have three hectares of land on the southern tip of Awera Island, giving them 250-meter of west coast and 300-meter of east coast which come together on a beautiful sandspit. Across the channel on North Sipora Island is Tau Pejat village which is connected to Padang via various overnight ferries as well the "Mentawai Fast" ferry which takes just three hours to cross the straight and runs four to five times a week.

The fully equipped villas are on the west facing beach. Cool sea breezes blow across a shallow and calm lagoon with a beautiful safe beach and lots of shady palms. Great snorkeling out front and easy access on and off your boat. An added bonus is the cell tower at Tau Pejat which is visible from your villa, giving you a 24/7 4G connection.

Program

During the 12-day program, you have access to a private speedboat with fuel and surf guide allowing you the freedom to surf when you feel like. Your drivers/guides will be on standby sunrise to sunset. The Mentawai surf camp is five-minute by boat from Backyards, or its a short stroll down the beach. Telescopes is 10 minutes away by boat. Most of the waves are within a 10-15 minutes radius.

Please bring your regular boards. Waves are mostly in three to four feet range with odd bigger days when a step up is required. Reef booties is a personal choice item, bring spare leg rope, very hard tropical wax only, the water is 30 degree Celsius and bring Solar cure resin for small ding repairs.

Waves

Backyards

Watch spellbound as this fast and hollow righthander reels down the reef, just north of Bilou Beach. It slows down after it hits the Backyard corner and on higher tides becomes a hotdog wave for all skill levels. 5-minute away by boat, or a 10-minute stroll down the beach.

Telescopes

Its waves like these that made the Mentawai's famous. One of the most perfect and versatile waves on the planet. From heaving hollow barrels when its big, to smackable horseshoe bowls, to fun shoulder high peelers for the whole family, Telescopes has it all. The Swiss army knife of waves, its multiple peaks and take off spots means everyone gets waves.

Icelands

Further around from Outers you will find this legendary lefthander. Hardly ever goes flat. Can be a gas chamber barrel or big bowling faces depending on size and swell angle.

Doughnuts

Just across the channel is this "pro's only" lefthand drainpipe. This wave was originally named Suicides. A true test for those who know what they doing.

Scarecrows

Keep driving past Telescopes and you will get to Scarecrows left. Picks up more swell than Tellies but the lineup can be a little less predictable. Make sure you are there when the Curry Bowl comes to life!

Outers

This is the exposed swell magnet righthander at the very top of our reef. Its starts as an A frame peak and can hold size. Breaks in deep water and can be surfed during all tides and has waves when everywhere else is flat.

Tikus

Up around the back of the islands is Tikus lefts. This is a fun, all tide, all skills wave which reminds everyone of Maccas. Just cruise down the line or smack the lip repeatedly: you chose!

Almosts

Situated at the tip of the headland across from Bilou Beach is this ledgy lefthander, which is usually overlooked as surfers are drawn to Telescopes. It likes a mid swell and mid tide and can deliver focused wedging barrels.

Surf seasons

Peak season: April - October

This is when those SW and SSW swells consistently hit Mentawai, Indonesia, arriving on their long journey from the low pressure systems in the Southern Indian Ocean.

Shoulder season: March and November

World class surf with less people in the line up but not as consistent or big.

Low season: December - February

Generally the gaps between major swells are longer, but cooking waves come, and when it happens you can enjoy A grade Indonesia waves with very low crowds. In the event that the waves are smaller and less consistent, there are also a few exposed 'swell magnet' spots which break even when its small.

This surf camp is located in Awera Island, the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia.
