 Mentawai

Indonesia

If you decide to come to Mentawais you can do it from March to November;due to their position in the Indian Ocean the islands are exposed to the South-Southwest swells,so from March to April the waves are smaller but consistent as well….Then they will become stronger in May. The same happens to the ending of October and the beginning of November: smaller but consistent waves again. From April to October strong swells from South Africa and Antartica reach our coral reefs carrying amazing waves that roll into clean and perfect barrels…… Now you can plan your trip thinking of this: if your choice is NO crowded and easier surfing we suggest you to book in March, April,October and November,if you like to play rough you must book from May to September! Surfline suggests Mentawai in August is the Best Bet in the world. (source : http://surfthementawai.com)

No such thing as a reliable time table - Ferry service changes from day to day, if ferry can't go due to weather, or broken etc, your stuck
Nyang Nyang is a hoax, local familys have got together and set a price which is way to high for what you pay(you can get a hotel in other parts of Indo), you get a smokey leaking no electricity, no toilet,no food, no shower, its rough but with a $ price, rip off area needs good swell to get in, so pitstops or long walk to pussys is only real options (crowded), tried to hire boat, what a rip off, this feral living with $ price tag, better pying a bit extra and staying at a camp/resort...never again :(
