The Naga Laut

Launched in late 1999, the Naga Laut has been continually upgraded to ensure a comfortable and unique experience. Naga Laut has been designed exclusively for upmarket surf charters in the Mentawai islands. The interior has been beautifully finished in polished local timbers. A spacious living area on board provides all the amenities of home including full air conditioning, a new satellite phone, TV, DVD, VCD, Wi-Fi, fridge, freezer, fishing, and snorkeling gear.

Naga Laut has four comfortable two-bed cabins, and one big four-bed cabin, all with multiple power sockets to keep your laptops, phones, and cameras charged, safe, and out of the way. On special request, Naga Laut can hold up to 12 surfers but sails most comfortably with eight to ten. There are two tenders - a Boston Whaler fiberglass speedboat with a Yamaha 85 HP to get you quickly and comfortably to the line-up, and a smaller zodiac with a 15 HP engine. Both are always on standby to quickly get you to the waves, do shore excursions, or go fishing.

Program

You will depart Padang at around 18:00 p.m. crossing to the Mentawai Islands overnight. The first morning, you will wake up surrounded by some of the best waves the planet has to offer. Over the next ten days, you will surf all the waves the island chain has to offer. Based on the conditions and your preference, your surf guide will make the call where to surf. You will mainly motor during the night to maximize the time in the water.

When you’re not surfing you can go swimming, snorkelling, fishing stretch your legs on land, or eat one of your four daily gourmet meals while relaxing in the air-conditioned saloon watching movies. After your last surf on the tenth day, you will head back to Padang overnight.

Since early and mid-1990, surfers visit the Mentawai Islands to experience untouched rainforest and superb waves. The Mentawai islands are such a great place for surf with classic waves breaking in crystal clear and warm water. The only way to surf all of the many waves in the Mentawai islands and stay away from the mosquitos, is by boat. Boats give you freedom and mobility. Hundreds of world-class reef and beach breaks exists up there, making it one of the most surf-infested regions in the world. Most spots host mechanical perfection and vary in intensity for all level of surfers, making it an ideal surf vacation location.

The South Indian ocean produces the swells that have the islands pumping consistently from February throughout November at three to 15 feet, and sometimes bigger. The cyclone swells keep the surf rolling in throughout the remainder of the year. The calm winds ensure that the swells that arrive are always lined up and of a very high standard.

4 bobs

A short, fun, and mellow right hander for all surfers. It has a pretty mellow drop with the opportunity for a few good hacks at the lip and then it mushes out into deep water. It can get a bit shallow at low tide so you need to watch yourself but all in all, it’s one of the most rippable alternatives in the Mentawai’s.

A frame

The A Frame is one of the most consistent lefts in the Mentawai islands. The peaks at the top can be a bit shifty and require a fair amount of paddling around to find the right area while the inside section is more dependable and offers up a better wall to work with.

Bank vaults

It is a shorter chunkier version of Rifles. A thick, tricky, shifty right with a fast and intense tube for experienced surfers only, located near Nipussi.

Beng-beng

This is a very consistent world class wave with 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. There are 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.

Burgerworld

This is the most scenic righthand point break in the Ments. Loved by people of all surfing levels, it can offer barrels at times, but usually has long rippable walls to work on your combos.

E-Bay

This is a hollow left that starts to barrel at the take-off followed by a short wall down the line. A great option when a lot of swell is hitting. E-Bay is world class wave for experienced surfers. Watch out for the two rocks on the inside. The scenery alone will blow you away. Besides its aesthetic beauty, the double overhead E-bay is a beast and forces to be reckon with.

Hideaways

A very hollow left that can be very shallow at low tide. The waves come out of deep water and then unload on a shallow section of reef before barreling towards the channel.

Ht’s (Lances right)

A short and perfect barrel complete with the renowned surgeons table which should be avoided at all costs.

Iceland

Icelands, as most of the other waves in the zone, is a left and is possibly the most ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ like wave in the Mentawai’s. When everywhere in the chain is flat, you can still pull up at Icelands and get a head high wave with a lazy but whack-able wall. With a big west swell when everyone is getting excited about Telescopes, the ice turns into a monster with barrels big enough to drive the speedboat through.

Jaraiks

It is nothing more than a bend in the reef and hard to spot until you pull up right in front of it. It is surfable on all tides.

Lances left

Long left-hander with two barrels sections.

Lighthouse

A long righthander breaking off a postcard picture island located at the bottom of the Mentawai chain.

Macaronis

Super mechanical left that barrels from takeoff then provides a long and extremely workable wall. This is one of the best performance waves in the world.

Nipussi

This is a shorter right that breaks down the point from Bank Vaults. Definitely a fun and rippable wave. It usually has fairly deep water from the takeoff to the inside. It 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.

No kanduis

A long barreling left that wraps around a small island. Usually very sectiony, but can line up on the largest of swells. It has many barrels on offer, but usually only makeable for one or two sections before closing out.

Pitstops

This 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.

Rags left

A great lefthander that can hold the biggest swells. It is very hollow and can often dish out some of the heaviest hold-downs in the island chain. Usually a bit more water is moving around so a larger board can be useful.

Rags right

A hollow right on the southern end of Rags island. Similar to HT’s but a little longer, and just as good. It can be fickle but it’s one of the best rights in the islands.

Rifles

This is one of the best waves in the Mentawais. A very long righthander that wraps around the other side of the same island as No Kanduis. Sometimes makeable from start to finish, but even just from section to section, you can get rides up to 100 yards or longer. It is nice and hollow once it is a few feet overhead, but usually more sectioned at smaller sizes.

Scarecrows

Another small swell left that can also hold some size. Scarecrows, sometimes referred to as Franko’s or Diablo’s, has the ability to spread out crowds with its several different take off spots. It is not a picture-perfect Indo reef break because it shifts around depending on swell direction, size, and currents.

Telescopes

Telescopes needs a decent sized west swell to start doing its thing. Though not as consistent as the other breaks in the area, a session at firing Teles will remain imprinted on your mind long after you’ve left the Mentawai’s.

The hole

Another very hollow left off a small island in the southern end of the Mentawai’s. It starts barreling right at the takeoff and never really stops until a closeout section hits the end of the reef.

Thunders

A consistent hollow left and a great option when everywhere else is small.
