Yanto is the first Mentawai person to guide surfers in the Mentawais. A true local with local knowledge. His place is very large. The beds are real and comfortable. Powerful fans and A/C in every bedroom. His captain and crew go out of their way to take care of guests.

Management response:

thank you very much louis.... How's alaska surf nowadays my friend ? we feel honor to have you as our guest... :)

How to get there
After landing on Minangkabau airport , the journey continuing with crossing the strait between Sumatra island and Mentawai archipelago. We highly recommend our guests to match their trip schedule / time table with the ferry and fast boat schedules that connect padang city and Siberut, Mentawai. There are currently 1 ferry (Gambolo) and 1 fast boat ( Mentawai Fast) that available for transportation from Padang city in mainland Sumatera to Siberut harbor, Mentawai.
