The surfing spots

Beng Beng

A very consistent world class wave, an extremely rippable left. This spot is loads of fun and probably one of the easiest waves to surf in the Mentawai's. It's the deepest and safest wave in the area and also picks-up a bit more swell than other locales. Five more breaks in the area, including E-Bay and Pitstops. Nestled inside a small bay with one of the most scenic views imaginable all around you.

E-Bay

This is a hollow left that barrels off the take-off with a short walk down the line. A great option when a lot of swell is hitting. A hollow, fast, powerful left. A world class wave for experienced surfers. Watch out for the two rocks on the inside. Great barrels, and turns into a surfing paradise at six feet offshore. There is a heavy warble that hits as you are taking off. Make the drop and don't get thrown by that first warble and chances are you'll get a mean aqua blue barrel. The scenery alone will blow you away. Besides its aesthetic beauty, double overhead E-bay is a beast and forces to be reckoned with.

Nipussi or Pussie

A shorter right that breaks down the point from Bank Vaults. Definitely fun and rippable. Usually has fairly deep water from the takeoff to the inside. Ends in a riptide that sucks all the water back out to sea. A good option when there's not much swell, and usually the most consistent spot in the area.

Pitstops

It is the right off the peak at E-Bay. A playful right that can offer some cover-ups off the take-off, but mostly a high performance wave with air sections at the end. Ends in a sandy channel.

Bankvaults

This wave is an absolutely amazing right-hander when it gets good breaking in deep water in two different sections. It is the big wave of the area. Breaks in all tides but better with an incoming tide. At low tide it can be unforgiving. It can handles up to 15 feet. Great take off with a big barrel section at the end. It can be a classic Hawaiian style deep-water wave.

    CONS Cons: Food was not always fresh, like served cold. When other guest arrived that were bigger groups, our group of 2 became invisible. Staff was very nice, but food was scarce. Lots of rice, and not enough meat. No fruit at all, other locals were kind enough to get coconuts for us. There are better camps around for the money...

    PROS Pros: Location was close to surf spots pit stops, eBay, beng beng... walk to nipussi,bank vaults about an hour.

    "Ebay playground surfcamp has everything to offer to all visitors who want to experiment Mentawai's adventure. Great local food, nice bedrooms in little wood hut on the beach. Boat services available everyday to go to the best spots for 115 dollars that you can divide between the number of surfers. Otherwise, 5 world class spots are accessible walking around the island which are usually really good. "

    "Finally eBay surfcamp is a really good compromise to live the mentawai dream."
