This camp definitely surpassed my expectacions. The staff members were always in a great mood and willing to help with anything. The surf guides were very well prepared and knew exactly where to go surfing according to the swell and wind. The food for breakfast, lunch and dinner were always really good. I didn't believe I was going to eat that well in the Mentawais.
Thanks for amazing trip Mentawai Surf Camp!
I have being visiting the Mentawai’s for 5 years, sometimes up to a couple of trips a year, over the vast variety of surf camps available in the region, MSC has to be one the best run operations. Given the remoteness of this chain of islands, logistics and transportation are key. MSC staff is dedicated to find you waves and make sure you have a good time, they have a great fleet of traditional wooden boats operated by experience local drivers, each trip usually will have a boat driver, a deck hand an surf guide. Their main goal is to get you waves and the guide will suggest best waves for the conditions of the day, no funny business , never trying to save fuel or short change guests, they understand that people travel a long way to get there and their mission is for every guest to find the best waves of their lives, no Mather what craft or size waves you ride.
The food is outstanding!, plenty of prawn & fish dishes during your stay; on occasions if the surf is too good to come back to camp the boat will be preloaded with lunch so you can maximise time in the water. every session is photographed and filmed so you get the option to buy the images at the end.
the other great quality of this camp is the ambience, it has a great bar, with daily happy hour and karaoke.
spending time in this camp is more like staying with family than being a hotel guest.
Mentawai Surf Camp is a great/safe option if booking a Mentawai trip for the first time.
Diego and Lora made me feel like home and part of their family during my stay in this place. I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about their next dream surf adventure. The food was surprisingly good, the waves were firing and my overall stay at the camp was really comfortable. Local staffs were super friendly and willing to be helpful at all times. I enjoyed great times drinking beers, playing ping pong, shooting balls in the driving range, snorkeling, fishing, watching movies, playing video games or just hanging.

I booked a last min trip with a friend. The boys at Mentawia's Camp were happy to take us in last min. We surfed more than any other trip I've been on. Great waves along with amazing people and food. It was nonstop fun from morning to night. With Al taking photos each session we surfed, my surfing has defiantly improved. I can't wait to go back!!!!.
