Who is this trip for ? 

The Mentawais islands are renowned for offering some of the best waves on the planet. This pristine archipelago provides a variety of challenging and rewarding surf spots. With our team we will take you to the greatest spots and we want to make sure that you get the most out of this epic journey. 

Are you a surfer who has mastered most of the basic surfing skills and progressed beyond the beginner stage ready to take it to the next level ? 

Here is a few skills and abilities that intermediate surfers possess : 

- Efficient at paddling into your own waves

- Wave selection

- Following the line of the wave

- Wave awareness and positioning

- Confident in different conditions

- Duck diving and turtle rolling

- Efficient at handling yourself and your board in a lineup. 

You do not need to be a professional at all these skills, just the basics of surfing, to make your experience with us unforgettable. 

The epic team, Kassia and Ana will guide you elevate your skills, conquer legendary waves, grow your confidence and connect with a community of passionate surf enthusiasts !

Even though we are traveling to the Mentawai islands in the shoulder season there can always be random swells that show up early and all of the waves break over reef. This means you must be a competent surfer able to catch your own waves, handle yourself in the lineup, and feel confident duck diving and turtle rolling. We will not be pushing people into waves. This retreat is for intermediate to experienced surfers looking to up level their surfing skills and advance to the next level. During this retreat we will be focused on supporting your skills on a variety of boards ranging from longboards , mid- lengths, fishes and single fins. With an emphasis on cross stepping, nose riding, turns, cutbacks and bringing more Flo and creativity to your surfing. 

*** If you are a beginner or still working on your popup and identifying the lineup we are stoked for you and want to support your journey. If so this is not the trip for you and we could suggest another one of our retreats that would better support you. So please reach out

Anais is a spirited soul who left her native France behind eight years ago in search of a life filled with surf and serenity. She always felt that the city life was suffocating, and she longed for a deeper sense of purpose and happiness. Bali became her refuge, offering an escape from the noise and chaos, and providing a space for personal growth, healing, and self-discovery. Driven by her own transformational journey, Anais felt compelled to share the joy and freedom she found in Bali with others. This calling led her to create immersive retreat experiences that combine her love for surfing, mindfulness, and a harmonious connection with the natural world. Ana is a certified crystal healing and sound practitioner, designer, and deep believer that joy is the key to unlocking the full potential within each of us ! Freedom, truth and depth, are the only things she is chasing in life.
