Your trips starts in Medan where you’ll be met at the airport by our ground-handling team and brought to you hotel. The following day you’ll be flown to Nias. On arrival at Gunungsitoli, you’ll be welcomed by our staff and driven to the port to meet Euge and the crew and board the Jiwa, your vessel for the trip.

Once aboard Jiwa we’ll run through a quick induction to the vessel, look at the charts and weather forecast and discuss the best wave options. Conditions permitting, we’ll likely get you a bonus surf the very same day; if not, we’ll arrive at the break in the morning of the first of 10-days of surfing.

On the evening of the last surfing day, we have our final sunset beer, say goodbye to the islands and make our way back to port. The following morning you’ll leave the boat and will be driven to the airport for your return journey to Medan.



Arriving in Padang, you’ll be met by our ground-handling staff and brought to your hotel in Padang. Early the next day, we’ll help you make the 3-hour fast ferry crossing to Tuapejet in the Mentawais.

Meeting you at the port, we’ll bring you aboard Jiwa, where we’ll run through a quick induction to the vessel, look at the charts, the swell and weather forecast and discuss the best wave options.

Starting in the Ments means that we have a variety of world-class waves within striking distance so we’ll have you surfing on your day of arrival!

If you are doing a Mentawai only charter, your trip will end in Tuapajet. After a morning surf and brunch you’ll leave the boat at 14.00pm to catch the fast ferry back to Padang.

Those travelling North to the telos and beyond will finish their charter in Nias, where you’ll fly to Medan for onward connections.
