Surf Paradise Boats run surf charters around West & North Sumatra mainly in the Mentawai, Telo and Banyaks Island groups.
The Mentawai Islands offer a wide variety of breaks catering to intermediate (long soft walls) and advanced surfers (shallow dredging barrels). Your group will be able to communicate to the expert western surf guide about what type of waves you would like to surf. The guide will figure out the best spots to take you to depending on the size & direction of the swell and wind.
Many of the waves you can visit on the charter have been featured in dozens of surf movies throughout the years. Spots like E-Bay, Bank-vaults, Hideaways, NoKandui, Rifles, Telescopes, HT’S, Macaronis, Greenbush, Rags, Lighthouse and The Hole are some of the most popular spots for surf film makers. All of these waves are shallow reef breaks that provide insane tube rides for experienced surfers. The list goes on with a number of easier waves like Pit Stops, Burger World, Nipussi, Baby Kandui, Karanbijat left, 4-Bobs, A-frames, Scarecrows, Bintangs, Lances Left, Sand Bars, Bat Caves, KFC, Roxy’s and Moots. These waves give you the chance to carve your brains out and slip into some easy barrel rides.
There are many well known spots to score some great waves but if you want to dodge the crowd and explore, you can ask the surf guide and go to a number of lesser known but equally great breaks. This is what we do best.
Equipped with smaller craft to get you to the surf quicker. It is an aluminium boat with a 40HP Yamaha to get you to the surf in a flash. We typically have an additional boat that can also be taken for other activities such as fishing, diving or exploring the islands nearby.
Our experienced western surf-guide is committed to delivering the highest level of service. The surf-guide is familiar with conditions, surf spots and the Indonesian culture. He knows both popular and secret spots so he'll take you to the best surf spot at the best time.
