You get what you pay for: if you want to pay the extra money and go on a charter boat you'll definetly get sick waves, and you'll be comfortable and safe.  If you want to do it on the cheap, you can, but only in monetary terms.  You might get sick waves, you might just get sick, you'll probably spend half your time waiting for the tide/wind/and swell to be right for the spot you're sitting in front of.  And you'll spend even more time being jealous of the guys who just showed up at your spot when it starts to turn on and are coming from somewhere that was even better while you were sitting there waiting!  Of course you might end up paying (in a sense)  when you get bounced off the reef and need stitches, it's a long way from anywhere...either way, you're going to pay.

I'm planning on arriving in Denpasar on May 29th 2006 and i'll be in Indo thru late june. I'm also interested in exploring the Mentawais non-commercially with a group if possible.
If you're interested send me an email to

Orlando, I came across this forum while looking for a cheap option to the Mentawais over the internet.  I saw that you were looking for people to get on a charter boat to the islands.  If you are still looking for people for the trip I would be very interested.  I am going to be in Thailand from the 17 July to 18 August and I have no plans but to somehow make a trip to surf in the Mentawais.  If you still need someone please e-mail me at nickdehaas@tampabay.rr.com.  Thanks

Go to Padang. Get the Ferry to Tua Pajet and then get a    dug-out canoe or another Ferry to HT's otherwise known as Lances Right. Stay at the camp for 10000 rupiah per night food additional. adds up to be. The best and cheapest way to see the best waves in the world, with a special dose of the local culture first hand. Evil right hander when it is big, playful up to 4 foot. Sit in the barrell or race the curtain depending where you take off. An hour walk away at the most to Lance's left a thrilling 300m Left.
Alternatively Go from Tua Pajet to the town nearest to Telescopes.  Syupid money, sick waves and an  experience guarunteed to get you back to the mentawai.

General tips on how to go about finding waves in Indo etc is cool, naming names and giving specific directions to still relatively uncrowdwed spots... ON THE INTERNET?!?!? Are you brain dead??

I can't imagine you've even been to these places which really pisses me off... If you had you would know word is getting out and what makes these places magic is on the way out... multiply the time frame in which that happens exponentially if egotistical tryhards tell THE WORLD how to get there!

thanks guys, i hope you enjoy surfing crowded waves cos it's gonna get damn hard to find uncrowded ones at this rate...
