Tapping into the Vault, Mentawai Islands

Final Voyage

We spent 12 days at sea surfing 12 different surf breaks amongst 3 overlapping swells in the Mentawais. We had 7 surfers on board the 47-foot Tengirri catching on average 40-50 waves each per day, sometimes more. Most days we’d surf 3 times on waves no smaller than 3 foot and no bigger than 8 foot. Needless to say, we had a pretty amazing tour of the islands – my 15th trip there and I still don’t bore of the place. I even saw new stuff on this trip.

If you’d like to go on a charter like this book with Tengirri, one of the most professionally run boats in the islands. You’ll need 6 or 7 people and there are 2 available charters left for this year, 8-20 Sept and 20 Oct – 1 Nov. Email Anthony@tengirri.com otherwise lock in next year!
