THE Wave spot just walking
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 pick up a bit more swell than other locales. 5 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 wall 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 6 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 reckon with.
Nipussi or Pussies=>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=> 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. Ends in a sandy channel.
Mentawai Island chain, which also happens to be the most wave-rich area. We 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 camp. We aim to share our high end location and facilities at a low end price with enthusiasts from across the world.
The best time of year to visit us is March to October (the biggest swells are in June to August), but there are waves all year round. The ‘off season’ usually has empty line-ups and is a great time for less-experienced surfers to visit as swells are usually a little smaller – for this reason, we open in March and stay open until the beginning of December
