Mentawai Islands one of the best boat surfing destinations

Average Wave Height: 6 TO 10 feet The Mentawai Islands, off the coast of West Sumatra, are one of the best boat-charter surfing destinations in the world. With an abundance of surf spots and calm conditions, the islands offer very consistent swell from the southern hemisphere during the peak April to October season.

Being smack on the equator, the islands are extremely lush and tropical, and aside from occasional Christian missionaries and loggers over the past century, they are largely pristine.

All of the Mentawai people speak a unique dialect, a proto-Malay language with the more westernized Christians of the coast also speaking the national language of Bahasa Indonesia and a smattering of Aussie-accented English.
