How did you like the accommodation?

     

Hidden Bay Resort is the perfect place to stay in the Mentaiwais. It's just a few minutes by boat from the best reef breaks in the region and Alex is always aware of the best spot to be. The rooms are very comfortable with air conditioning and best in class beds and pillows. All the meals were delicious - I was amazed how could the chef not repeat a single dish during my whole stay even us being on a tiny island in the middle of the Indian ocean. Above everything, Alex Ribas is the true soul of the place. He's always making sure his guests are having the best possible experience in his resort - surfing the best waves, getting the best photos (from his super-talented photographer Ciex Ardiles), doing the right exercises before and after surfing, eating well or simply relaxing at the beautiful all-wooden main house of the resort. I can't wait to come back next year.

Season

May to September is the peak season for surfing. Mar, April, Oct & Nov and 'off' season can be better because of the smaller crowds & more mellow surf. Rainy season is Sept-Dec with heavy rain for 2-3hrs per day but that doesn't effect the surf..


Mentawai Islands Wave Summary

Surfing Mentawais simple has it all, wherever you are staying you will have access to the most consistent surf in the planet. There are over 50 recognised spots and countless others.

The North
The largest island of the chain is Siberut. There is a huge selection of surf at the southern end of this island. The Nyang- Nyang reef points such as the world class left E-Bay and the right, Riffles ,are considered to be some of the most perfect waves in the world. Bank-vaults has now become infamous for one of the best waves around but is only for the experts.

In the same area you will also find plenty of playful less charging waves including Playgrounds, Tikis, Burger World and the fun right-hander wall Pitstops that ends on a sandy beach

Central
This island hosts Telescopes which is a consistent left that can peel for up to 200 metres and is good for almost all abilities. Scarecrows is a short, wedgy left which is best on best on a dropping tide.

In the south of Sipora you will find the well known surf breaks Lances left and Right. Lances Left is super fun and playful with a barrel section in the middle. It's beautiful turquoise water and perfect shape make it among the most photographed waves in the world, and one of the easiest to get barreled.Lances Right on the other hand is shallow, short, and advanced level only.

The South
South are the twin islands of Pagai Utara & Pagai Selatan. One of the worlds most famous waves Macaronis lies off Pagai Utauru. This ultra consistent left is a perfect deep barrel on the first section and then backs off to into a really fun wall.

Further north you have Bommie Peak which is only for the big wave hellmen.
