Indies Explorer is Indonesian, Australian owned and under western management.

Where are the best spots?

There are four large Mentawai islands and many smaller islands scattered throughout. The most northerly is Siberut and my favourite which contains an amazing area of wicked waves in a five mile radius. Also to the North there are the Tellos Islands and the island of Nias – also awesome!

To the south is Sipora which is home to world famous waves such as Telescopes and HT’s. There is a little way to the south are North and South Pagai. Maccaroni’s, Thunder’s, and many more world class spots you’ve never even heard of – so get on a chater boat and explore today!

In season between April and October when swell swinging up from the Roaring 40s and Howling 50s march south-west across the Indian Ocean and the light trade winds blow from the south-east.
