LOCATION & GETTING HERE
The area is home to some of the most fun waves on the planet. Best known for its right-hand reef /point break called Treasure Island widely regarded as one of the easiest waves in the world to get multiple barrels.
The surf there is ultra-consistent in the 3-5-foot range, with lefts and rights that work in all tides, and opposite wind directions virtually guaranteeing off-shores every day. Best of all, the variety of surf offers many options for all levels of surfers and equipment. In Telo Island, there are over 20 different waves
Waves vary in size from 2 to 12 foot with the average wave height being about 6 foot. The Mentawai Islands region can also get big swells with reports of up to 15 feet plus recording. They can range anywhere from fun-sized walls to awesome stand-up barrels. If can hold you’re own on a wave, whether you’re natural or goofy, this place has the wave for you. Even today you still have the opportunity to surf uncrowded waves as this area keeps producing quality lineups which are scattered amongst a vast array of reefs, point breaks, and secluded bays.
