This reviewer told us :

5 star resort with 6 star hosts, air conditioning to boot. 2 surf boats, paradise between bankvaults and pitstops. Most reasonable camp in Mentawais. Book today and meet my mentawaiian brotherhood, love them all, and come back surfing like Andi.

Surfing:

paradise between bankvaults and pitstops.

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

Yanto is the radest surf guide in the Mentawai! Takes great photos and his place is paradise.
