Do you want to improve your surfing? Then try and surf in some better waves!
You will be able to test your equipment and push your personal boundaries to a higher level.
Travel somewhere reliably consistent, where you can focus on improving your wave knowledge, your positioning, your fitness, your turns and your tube-riding.
You can achieve all of this and more in just 10 to 14 days aboard a surf charter with friends, or staying at a family friendly land resort in the Mentawai.
The Mentawai Islands provide every possible canvas for you to improve your particular wave riding dance on. There’s a different type of wave around every corner.
There’s nooks and crannies sheltered from all wind directions.
There’s shallow, hollow reefs, fun, mellow walls, high performance skate parks, flawless pits and high almond style barrells with enough water over the reef for average surfers to score some tube time.
There’s just so many perfectly shaped reefs.
Lefts, rights and no time consuming, energy sapping battles through endless whitewater paddle outs beach break styles.
Instead enjoy being dropped off in the channel, and paddle out in comfort, taking in the breathtaking palm fringed scenery whilst cruising out to generally predictable take off zones.
Even average surfers can lay full rail carves or get barrelled in the Ments.
High -performance surfers can try every manouvre imaginable and get as deep in the tube as humanly possible.
We have two contrasting clips this week:
Clip one showcases four of Australia’s  best free-surfers Jack Freestone, Noa Deane, Mitch Coleborn and Chippa Wilson pushing high performance boundaries at Maccas.
