Embark on the surf journey of a lifetime, where you and a group of like minded people are sharing space in one of the most comfortable surf charters in the area. Correct all your bad habits surfing as each session will be filmed, and reviewed through video analysis with Rodrigo. Catch the wave of your life as everyone aboard will be supporting each other to radically improve.

We’ve opted to go slightly off the usual Mentawai route, cruising north to the Telos islands with the hope to score empty waves in the area, our route could differ depending on weather and  surf forecasts orother insider knowledge. The goal is to score some of the best waves in the area, not the heaviest slasb but waves where we will slightly push beyond our comfort zone with the guidance of Rodrigo Machado as a surf coach. The other goal is that everyone comes home with a barrel shots of themselves, even if you’ve never been barreled before!

You’ll be guided in bringing your surfing to take next level, perform power turns, bring more flow to your surfing and ultimately have more fun. This trip was initially created for those who have already done the skate and land based training with us on other retreats and workshops, though we are welcoming everyone, please submit video of yourself surfing so we can assess your level and make sure this is the perfect trip for you.

FORECAST: September / October

It is considered as the late season however it still is one of the most consistent month of surfing throughout Indonesia. We should not have any XL swells but larger swells up to 8-10 ft (up to double overhead) on the forecast are possible, with an average size around 6-ft size (head high to overhead), and smaller days around chest high. There isn’t any predominant wind patterns in this part of Indonesia (unless El Niño climate pattern which just happened in 2023, so we should be safe!).
