ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS
THE MENTAWAIS 
The Mentawai Islands are a chain of more then seventy islands and islets on the Indian Ocean located approximately 150 km from the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The strait that separates them from Sumatra is the Mentawai Strait. Siberut (4.030 km ²) is the largest island. The other major islands are Sipura, North Pagai (Pagai Utara) and South Pagai (Pagai Selatan) and the indigenous inhabitants of the islands are known as the people of the Mentawais. The Mentawai Islands have become a major surfing destination in the world during the last decade.

The resort is located in the Playgrounds area, where we have the highest diversity of good waves in the Mentawai Islands. Every wave is within a 15-minute speedboat ride from the resort and the closest one is Hideaways only 3 minutes by boat.

There is always a protected wave with an offshore wind somewhere. Our swell window is huge, from 240 SW through to 165 SE, our area gets consistently hit by a lot of swell from the Indian ocean. Our waves are the closest Mentawai waves to mainland Sumatra, which means less travel time for you to access our perfect waves.

We have waves that suit everyone from beginners to professional surfers. Our guest capacity is limited to 12 surfers, which means more waves for everybody! Every difficult wave has an alternate and easier wave nearby. This means we can divide our group by different surf levels. In addition to the huge variety of famous waves of international quality, there are still many other secrets or semi-secret spots of excellent quality in the zone which we do not share in our website!

SURF MATERIALS
Smothstar – The best surf trainer SmoothStar is arguably the world’s best surf training tool, helping to improve technique, body position and flow on a wave. SmoothStar is designed and Distributed globally by SmoothStar International Pty. Ltd.

For a long time SmoothStar has been known to Australian Surfers as the best surf training product outside the water. However, unless you have tried a SmoothStar, it is hard to understand why it feels so much like surfing.

The SmoothStar product replicates the surf feel because the front truck has a special turning device called the SmoothStar Thruster. The Thruster makes the front of the board loose so the board can turn and drive off the back trucks – the same as you would with surfboard rails and fins… the feel is “rail-to-rail” surfing on land.

The Thruster is so unique and so realistic like surfing that we have had to spend a lot of money to protect our innovation with patents. The turns are not sharp, floppy or stiff – they are “Smooth” but as radical as you want them to be and that is why we call it “SmoothStar”.


OTHER ACTIVITIES
SNORKELLING, TREKKING, STAND UP PADDLE &MORE 
With its bay protected by a coral reef, guests can go snorkeling or stand up paddleboarding. The lush forest behind the resorts offers some beautiful treks. Finally, guests can simply enjoy their time relaxing on the beach.
We want to help you disconnect from your daily routine & stress and reconnect with yourself. We encourage our guests to listen to the nature’s sounds and put away electronic gadgets. Choose a book, or just relax and find time to hear yourself.

Andai Pilates – The physical and mind maintenance 
All of this is provided by the Resort partnership with The Andai Studio. The owner, Andreia Fornaro,   has the responsibility to choose all top-level professionals working at the Hidden Bay Resort Mentawai.
The main focus of our training routines is on stretching and regenerative exercises following the functional model of ‘Five Konzept’ developed in Germany. This allows our guests to enjoy their entire stay while maintaining peak performance levels in the water.
We also offer harder, more personalized workout routines to be executed in the resort under the supervision of one of our trainers – it all depends on each guest and their needs and wants.
