The Mentawai Islands are renowned worldwide as a surfer’s paradise, and the reason for that is simple: the incredible abundance and variety of waves, unmatched anywhere else on Earth. There are left-handers and right-handers, rippable walls and perfect barrels, easy waves for beginners, challenging waves for experts, and everything in between.
This is without doubt one of the world’s foremost surfing destinations, with a range of waves that is practically infinite.
The conditions for surfing are in constant flux, changing in accordance with the wind, tide, and size and direction of the swell. Thanks to our intimate knowledge of the surrounding area, we know where the waves are likely to be best at any given moment. Once we’ve analysed the conditions, we make the most of the boats at our disposal and take our guests to the best waves.
Awera Resort has a fleet of three boats — two made of wood, one of metal.
We offer surf lessons for complete beginners as well as advanced surfers and pros. Our expert instructors use a range of teaching methods to help you improve your surfing, from offering support and guidance in the water when you’re getting started, to filming your session and analysing the footage with you in the evening over a drink.
