A: Not at all! Our surf camp is designed to welcome participants of all skill levels, including beginners. Whether you’re a complete novice or have never even touched a surfboard before, we’re here to help you learn and enjoy the thrill of surfing. Our L1 and L2 surf lessons are specifically tailored for beginners, providing a solid foundation to get you started.

Q: Where can I find more information about the surf lessons?

A: You can find detailed information about our surf lessons on the “one package fits all” page on our website. This page outlines the contents of the package, including the duration of the lessons and what you can expect to learn at each level.

No need to keep a large budget for food as we will provide 7 days a week full board meals. Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks & Dinner is included in our Mentawai package, as the local options are scarce. Local food is available at a much lower cost than European-style cuisine but the choice is very very limited. If you like to have a taste of what the island cuisine is like it will be mostly based on Padang food or streetfood (which is definitely worth the try). There are literally a few small local Warungs (restaurants) that serve fried chicken (Ayam Lalapan), Nasi Padang, Rendang and few other options. You can also find a Chinese warung on a 15 min drive along the main road or can go on a 5 min walk down the beach and visit the only western food, Pizza and Burgers, place on the island “The Bakery”. Ofcourse you can also buy your own snacks and food in the supply stores that you can find in town such as crisps, coke, water, chocolate, icecream etc. We feel it is good to go out sometimes, meet the friendly locals and see what is out there while supporting the local economy at the same time.

No mandatory vaccine requirements are nescessary to enter Indonesia and the Mentawais.

Travel and cancellation insurance are essential for any traveler, as unforeseen circumstances can arise during any trip. Such circumstances can include accidents, medical emergencies, loss of baggage or passports, and trip cancellations or interruptions. Without insurance, travelers may find themselves facing significant financial losses.

Travel insurance provides coverage for such unforeseen events, ensuring that travelers are protected against financial losses that may arise due to these events. Cancellation insurance, in particular, provides coverage for the expenses incurred when a trip is canceled or interrupted due to unforeseen circumstances.

Thus, having travel and cancellation insurance is crucial for travelers as it offers peace of mind and financial protection during their journeys.

We are located in the Mentawai a group of three islands in front of the Indonesia province Sumatera. One of the three Mentawai Islands is Sipora Island which where we are located near the port and capital of the Mentawai, Tua Pejat.

To get here requires a little more organisation than to fly into Bali, and so we look at this location as a destination on its own. 

With that being said it is not very complicated to get here as it is it is three steps only.

To simplify your journey to the Mentawai we will give you a easy break down first, before getting into more details and schedules.  

We will start with the first city of arrival:

  1. Jakarta (Indonesia) or  Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). As this is the hub how to get to Pandang and then later to the Mentawai.
  2. Arrival Padang -> to the hotel in Padang. Spend one night there to catch the Fast Ferry early in the morning.
  3. Once arrived in Sipora Island (Mentawai) Tua Pejat we will pick you up from the harbour and bring you to our surf house, which is nearby.


Your total trip will look like this:

Home — (flight) –>

1. Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur  — (flight) –>

2. Padang City (Sumatera)  — (fast ferry or flight TBC) –>

3. Tua Pejat / Solid Surf House (Sipora Island / Mentawais)


More detailed info:

Jakarta / Kuala Lumpur (KL): Jakarta/ Kuala Lumpur is the main hub to reach Padang. Internationally or domestic this is the transit airport to get to Padang. From Jakarta / Kuala Lumpur you can take any possible flight to Pandag City in Sumatera. This is a 2.5 Hr flight and can easily be booked for very fair prices. Fly from Jakarta with Garuda, Citylink, Batik Air or Lion Air or from Kuala Lumpur with Air Asia.

Padang City: In Padang City you will need to spend one night here so you can take the fast ferry in the early morning. As the flights will not match the departure time of the Fast Ferry. The best days to fly into Padang are: Sunday – Tuesday – Thursday – Saturday because the fast ferry will depart the next morning early.



Still to be confirmed but expected to start flying in 2024 to the airport of Mentawai / Sipora Island, a 20 min drive from our Surf House.



Padang –> Tua Pejat – Mentawais (Fast Ferry): The Fast ferry is departing from Padang to Tua Pejat every Monday – Wednesday – Friday and Sunday.

  • Monday at 7:00 am in the morning
  • Wednesday at 7:00 am in the morning
  • Friday at 7:00 am in the morning
  • Sunday at 10:00 am in the morning

Tua Pejat – Mentawais — >Padang (Fast Ferry): the fast ferry departs from the Mentawais to Padang every:

  • Monday at 3:00 pm afternoon
  • Wednesday at 3:00 pm afternoon
  • Friday at 3:00 pm afternoon
