Sumatra for beginner surfers?

« on: January 26 2013 07:01:00 »


I'm a beginner surfer staying in Padang at the moment. Surfed Air Manis today which I really liked so I'll probably be staying here a few days. I was planning on going to the Mentawais next but it sounds like it's pretty expensive for a solo traveller as well as being better for more experienced surfers. Can anyone give me any advice about whether it would be worth it for me to go the Mentawais considering expense and size of waves, or else suggest places north of here that would be good for a beginner? I fly out of Medan on the 9th February.

Any help much appreciated. Thanks!
