Useful Things to bring

Before you leave, here is a list of things useful to bring apart from your surfing equipment:
• Towel.
• Waterproof sunscreen is highly recommended. We are right on the equator.
• Mosquito Repellent. We have at the resort but you are welcome to bring your own.
• Raincoat could be useful for rainy days.
• Cash for beers  (25000 IDR/beer) and
• Original passport and photocopy of your passport
• Travel insurance
• books to read while relaxing.
• Malaria pills. This is your choice, some guests take Malaria pills prophylactic others bring as standby medication. If unsure, please consult your doctor.
• Anti allergies.
• Antibiotics for reef cuts.


You might not necessarily actually need or use all of these items, but it’s recommendable to have them with you.

Playground Waves

Here is an overview of the waves close to Gordo Mentawai Surf Resort. There are some world class rights as well as left-handers. No matter if you are beginner-intermediate, advanced, or expert, chances are high that you will ride the best wave of your life – right here.


The place to head when the swell disappears and the wind is W to N. It’s a proper pointbreak nestled close to the dense jungle of this uninhabited isle, where the rocky reef platform trips up some hooky little rights, perfect for snap and cutback combos or a little punt. Friendly intermediate wave that’s rarely perfect and turns into a huge burger when the swell hits headhigh.


Lush, lefthand smoker with perfect form, especially when there’s more W in the swell and E in the wind. Tight take-off zone concentrates the crew who must do exactly that to avoid a brush with the coral that menaces at lower tides. Vert drop, quick turns then a race to the safety of the channel under the curtain, avoiding the 2 big rocks at high tide and praying that the exit doesn’t shut down at low. Handles all size swells but it’s really fickle so dont expect to score it on a 2 week tour. Lesser surfers should stick with Pit Stops and Beng Bengs.


Tucked into a corner close to shore, Nipussi gives lesser mortals a chance to work the consistent walls that are effectively the end of the Bank Vaults swell train. Big drops can be had across a couple of sections of reef and the inside zippers can offer a tube ride, but it is accessible for intermediates wanting to ride something a little juicier. Often the only show in town when N winds meet a smallish swell. Nipussi is a well-covered reef encouraging you to work it before it goes dry at the sign-posted shut down.


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.


Fear inducing righthander that bends and warps over the exposed, swell sucking tip of Pulau Masokut. Deceptively fast, shifting sections look makeable from the channel, but only the real chargers will handle this complex line-up. Gets better when it’s double overhead or bigger and expect to get pinned on the “get me outa here” inside reef as the sets refract from wide, cutting off the escape to the channel. South swells and winds are sketchier, but tide doesn’t faze it. The left around the other side of the tip has been surfed, but is dangerous without the right’s rewards. Intermediates should head straight to Nipussi.


This is the right off the peak at E-Bay. A playful right that can offer some serious fun, but mostly a high performance wave with air sections at the end. Ends right at the beautiful beach.

How to get there

Mentawai islands are relatively easy to access, but it needs some time to get there.  First of all you need to come to Padang, a vivid small city with beautiful environment in West Sumatra. Flights to Padang can be booked via and payed via paypal (in case your credit card isn’t working on LionAir or on Garuda Indonesia )
Still you can check for flights on these websites. We suggest to get tickets as early as possible. Flights are usually quite affordable but can be sometimes fully booked, especially during the Idul Fitri holidays.

Way forth

Flights go from Jakarta, Denpasar/Bali, Lombok, Singapore and lots of other cities  to Padang every day. With a Full Package booking, Airport Pickup is included – our crew will be the airport in Padang when you arrive to take you to our guest house for the night.

In the next morning we take you to the harbor

Mentawai Fast Ferry

The new Mentawai Fast Ferry is now operating every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 7am from Padang to the islands and back.


In Siberut harbor you can buy some snacks and supplies and enjoy a 2h boat ride through the mangroves forrest along a riverbed to the beautiful half-moon island with our resort.

 …and back

A speedboat will bring you back to Siberut harbor on a Tuesday, Thursday  or Saturday and the Fast Ferry will leave around 3pm. Arrival back in Padang is around 6pm. Our crew in Padang will pick you up and bring you to the airport or you can stay another night in our guest house..


Because good food is essential for well being and particularly important when doing sports, our crew will take care of everything during your stay.


Every morning breakfast is served before or after the surf. Either banana or pinaple pancakes with chocolate milk or scrambled eggs with fresh tomato and butter toast. As well always fresh fruit, coffee and tea.


Yummy yummy yummy, I got love in my tummy… For lunch you have Mie or Nasi Goreng, Fish, Chicken or Pork with vegetables and fresh fruit  as desert.


By the way, you can have fresh coconuts whenever you like. The milk is extremely healthy! It’s good for the muscles, keeps your cells fit  and serves a lot of energy. So, make use of it.


In the evening  you can have fine stew, red snapper, marinated bbq chicken with rice, potatoes, fries, noodles and various other very tasty dishes. You will love it, promise.
