Surfing Mentawai Islands
The Mentawai Islands are home to some of the most amazing surf spots in the world. These islands, situated off the coast of Western Sumatra, are a beautiful place to hit the water.

The waves here vary in size from 2 to 12 foot, and have an average wave height of 6ft. If you go during the main surfing season, the waves will be pretty consistent too. The Mentawai Islands have about a 91% chance of scoring epic waves, so is a great option for surfers looking for consistent waves and warm waters.
