The Mentawais are a group of Islands that sit off the coast of Sumatra and have to be one of the most idyllic places to Surf in the world. Charter boats and resort holidays are not cheap, but you get what you pay for and the Indian Ocean serves up perfect waves to anyone lucky enough to visit. One resort to consider in The Mentawai Islands is the WavePark, where not only will you live like royalty you will also have some of the best waves in the world on your doorstep.
The Indian Ocean has been on fire for the first half of 2014 and Team WavePark have been documenting some of the waves that they have been hooking their guests up with. Some of the waves they have been enjoying include BankVaults, Ebay, Hideaways and Rifles as well as some of their favourite secret spots. In fact the waves have been so good and they have so much footage, WavePark have had to release three videos of the sessions that total just under 30 minutes of viewing pleasure.
The film series is called Our Front Yard and showcases the quality waves and talent of the visiting surfers in the spots surrounding WavePark. An 11 day trip to the resort will set you back $3960 USD and includes luxury bungalow accommodation, all meals, guided Surfing service and full use of all the resorts facilities. The added bonus is that there is a maximum of 12 Surfers allowed at any time!
The three videos are embedded below and to find out more information about the resort, the facilities and the waves take a look at the WavePark website. Let us know if you have ever been lucky enough to Surf The Mentawais and is this kind of luxury Surf trip for you?
