A Mentawai Islands surf trip has all the elements for that dream adventure – sun, sea, sand and world class waves!
My photographer buddy Louis (aka @onebreath.images on the ‘gram) has been lucky enough to be riding out COVID and has spent a large chunk of the world lockdown surrounded by palm trees and pumping surf in the Mentawais, flooding my Insta feed with heaps of epic pics!
So if you’re busy planning your next surf adventure here are 10 of his personal favourites that prove the Mentawai Islands are a surfers paradise…

On Your Doorstep – many of these beautiful islands have pumping surf just a short paddle away
Through The Blue – seriously how inviting does this water look? Boardies all the way!
Unridden – don’t let too many of these roll in unridden!
That Backdrop – honestly you’ll be hard pushed to find anywhere with more palm trees than these islands!
Blues & Greens – Just. Wow.
Smiles All Round. The Ments isn’t just for pros – there are plenty of playful waves around for advanced intermediates too.
Daily Commute – Yup, just another day in the Mentawais!
Sunset Hues – rolling barrels and evening vibes. Cold beer after this anyone?!
