There's some"cheap" landresorts, but for best result the boat is the option.
To get there flying is the only option.

1. boat charter
2. resort
3. local camp (check the latest forum about padang)

to get mentawai from Bali, you must get flight Bali - Jakarta - Padang, padang is a gate for people to Mentawai Island.

Firstly, how serious are you???  Send me an email if you are.  I've been out here since 2000.  I can get you into whatever you want, just need to know what you're budget/time frame/expectations/ect are.  I just got of a 11 day trip with, spent 2 dats with and am emailing ya from (as can be seen on facebook) Togat Nusa Mindfulness Retreats...oh ya, I surfed Telescopes this morning off the Budyahdari with some mates ( before they gave me a ride over too Scarecrows (where the camp is).   Have a go, that's the only way to really find out.  Happy to help!  Cheers, aK

contact:,The Asian Princess is skippered and crewed by local Mentawai seamen. Their intimate knowledge of the local waters are the Asian Princesses’ greatest asset. Their combined lifetime experience of weather and wave conditions will ensure you are surfing the best empty lineups.

Built in 2000 the "Asian Princess" is a 20m (70 ft) wooden hulled beauty and was purpose built for long haul surf exploration along the Indonesian coastline.
