The Mentawais are considered to be one of the most consistent and diverse surfing destinations on the planet. For those intermediate/advanced surfers, you’ll have access to a number of breaks including Iceland, Ombak Tidur, and Seven Palms to name a few. Your package includes 6 days with 2 daily speedboat surf sessions (morning & afternoon) with our experienced surf guide and coach.
For our beginners, you’ll be surfing at a break called Tikus and your package includes 6 lessons on a soft-top longboard.
Very important to note: all of the surf breaks are over coral reefs. We will teach you how to fall flat in the hope of avoiding injury, but there is a risk of scrapes and cuts. Reef shoes can be worn, but keep in mind they are not eco for the water environment.
We will offer a week of delicious yoga that nurtures the mind and body to open and restore the muscles and energy after a day of surfing. Our practices are designed to illuminate acceptance and gratitude for the moment and offer invitations to absorb mind-body-soul nourishment through grounding, opening, and restorative flows.
Are you ready to be spoiled by super yummy cuisine, perfect waves, and juicy restorative yoga in a tropical paradise? The islands are remote, but it’s sooooo worth the adventure!
