M.I.A Surf Camp’s spacious, elevated beachfront accommodation has been positioned to allow views of all five waves from every bungalow. You can literally check the surf from your bed. They also have the most consistent and non-threatening wave of all the northern Mentawai literally 40 meters from all locally made and traditionally styled bungalows.

This surf camp will take place at M.I.A Surf Camp located on the northern end of the Mentawai Islands chain, which also happens to be the most wave-rich area. They are smack-bang in the middle of more than 10 islands, each with pristine beaches, swaying palm trees, and coral-encrusted reefs, along with an amazing number of surfing set-ups, 5 straight out the front, and another 25 waves within half an hour of the camp.

M.I.A Surf Camp is positioned in a large coconut grove, with jungle to the rear and a pristine white sandy beach at your doorstep. The superior location of this camp means they have a massive area of the island all to themselves, with their nearest neighbour being a very small fishing village about a kilometer away. This means you can party hard every night or just chill and enjoy the sounds of the surrounding jungle and ocean with not another soul in sight.

The Mentawai Islands is group of islands off the west coast of Sumatra. They are an isolated paradise situated in the perfect geographical position for the almost constant Indian Ocean swell trains. Every island is post card perfect where coconut palms and jungle meets an ocean full of pristine coral reefs and unmatched waves. It is known across the globe as having the best waves in the world.

Being so close to the equator, the winds are extremely light and variable, unlike other parts of Indonesia which are strongly affected by seasonal trade winds. The islands are picture perfect in all directions, and loaded with unique flora and fauna.

In the furthest reaches of the larger islands, it is possible to witness one of the last truly unchanged ancient cultures, the jungle-dwelling Sarereiket people. The location boasts five incredible waves directly in front of the camp that cater for every level of surfer which are Nipussi, the Peak, the Klit, Piggybanks, and Bankvaults.

During your stay, you will be served 3 main meals a day along with snacks, drinks, juice, tea, coffee, fruit platters, endless amounts of fresh coconuts, and much more. M.I.A Surf Camp Mentawai has skilled chefs to serve you a range of high-quality Indonesian and Western cuisines between surfs.

Arrival by airplane

You just need to get yourself to either Kuala Lumpur or Jakarta then from either of these cities, you can have a very cheap, short flight to Minangkabau International Airport (PDG) in Padang, West Sumatra.

On arrival in Padang, you will be greeted by one of M.I.A Surf Camp Mentawai’s drivers who will take you to your pre- booked hotel in air-conditioned comfort. There, you can rest for the next days’ crossing to the Mentawai or go check out Padang's night life.

The next morning in Padang, your driver will meet you again early at your hotel to transfer you to the new super-fast channel-crossing ferry, the Mentawai Fast, a very safe, brand-new vessel which will get you out to the Mentawai Islands in air-conditioned comfort in just three hours, or about a quarter of the time the old ferry took for the same journey. The journey from the Siberut Village harbour to M.I.A Surf Camp is extremely picturesque, offering great photo opportunities.

On arrival at the Mentawai Islands, the ferry will moor at Siberut Village harbour where you will be greeted by one of the M.I.A Surf Camp hosts and a waiting speedboat. From here, depending on guest preferences, they can either go to a local restaurant for a quick lunch or start the one hour trip to M.I.A Surf Camp.
