The Mentawais are considered one of the most consistent surf destinations in the world. With world-class waves all year long, the high season goes from March until October, meaning higher chances of getting longer and more powerful swells. When you go to the Telo Islands, there will be many waves to choose from, from hollow barrels with edgy drops for chargers to super fun and easy waves.

The boat

A real wave hunter. Moon Palikir is a 100ft vessel that gives you all the comfort of being in a hotel while you chase the most incredible waves. It has an elegant layout and facilities. All the rooms are equipped with a 42” plasma TV and home theatre. Six cabins accommodate two guests each, with air conditioning and plenty of space to comfortably sleep. From relaxing on the large external deck (that has a BBQ) with other people to feasting on a guaranteed chef-made meal, we have it. In addition, we have nippy tender boats on standby to assist surfers in case they require any help.
