TRAVEL

How to come to us

To reach our surf camp you need to travel on the ferry or Mentawai fast boat from Padang, West-Sumatra. Padang is reachable by air plane to Minangkabau Airport from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur.

Mentawai Fast Boat: 
The fast boat runs from Padang to Siberut 3 times a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). The boat leaves at 7 am and the trip takes up to 6 hours. Fast boat tickets can be purchased at the Mentawai Fast office a day before (2 pm until 5 pm) or the day of your departure (6 am). If you wish we can help you to assist buying the ticket. The ticket price doesn’t include surfboard luggage. This needs to be paid on the morning when the fast boat leaves. The ticket for one person is 360k IDR.

Slow overnight ferry:
Leaves from Padang harbor around 6 pm in the evening and arrives at 4 am in Siberut. The harbor is quite far outside from Padang, why we recommend to take the Fast boat.

Since the Fast boat is leaving early mornings, you need to arrive one day before and stay one night in Padang. Here you can enjoy the famous and delicious Nasi Padang, rest one night and jump on the boat the next day.

Don’t know where you can stay? Just let us know, we can recommend lodging in Padang. 

Arriving in Siberut Harbor, one of our crew member will pick you up with our fast boat and brings you to the Surf camp (approximately 1 hour ride).
