DISCOVER YOUR BOAT - The Moon Palakir
"A high standard 100 foot vessel capable of high-speed and long-range. It’s the real wave hunting machine."
Am I good enough to surf in the Mentawais?
If you are just learning to surf, sadly this trip isn’t for you. We have designed this trip especially for intermediate to advanced surfers who are either beginning to do manoeuvres, or are looking to perfect their skills. Our coaches ask that you are able to paddle well, duck-dive or roll efficiently (if on a longboard), and take off smoothly on shoulder to head-high waves. From there we can teach almost anything ☺.
What are the waves like? Will it be big or crowded?
This trip is scheduled at the end of the peak season when the winds get lighter and the crowds get thinner. With lighter winds, we are able to explore more locations, offering us a wider variety of waves outside of the busy marquis waves that the Mentawais are famous for. Expect waves in the chest high to possibly double over head range depending on the break we surf. There may be days when we are near to more than 1 break and the group can choose which waves they (as an individual), would like to surf. We are lucky to have 2 additional tender boats included to help with getting guests to and from, different waves.
Are longboarders welcome?
Of course! As long as you are comfortable turtle-rolling your board and surfing in shoulder to head-high waves, your style and grace on a longboard is very much welcome!
