From arrival until departure we were looked after by everyone on this island.  Richard, Amy, baby Curren, Hoobs, Smiley and Ali, the surf guides made our trip memorable.  All resort workers were friendly and helpful.  Surf excellent, hoping to return again one day. Read more...

Excellent trip plenty of great waves.  Food at Joyos was generally really good.  Good afternoon catch up at the beach with the best hotdogs and beer.  I did not have a mossie net but the AC seemed to keep them away.  They definitely need an early light breakie at 5.30am.

Such a great experience! The service on the boat was exceptional and the comfort level was good.  Unfortunately, the surf was light on with only one decent day (4-6ft). All other days were 1-3 ft. However, there were waves every day so we still managed to fit in 2-3 surf sesh's every day!  A Read more...

Surf was consistently good and always seemed to be able to find somewhere where the wind was offshore.  Getting from Terminal 2 (Singapore Airlines) to Terminal 3 (Garuda) for flight to Padang was very tight; especially when flight from Singapore delayed.  Not a fan of walking over the reef Read more...

The down side relates to the connections. So much time waiting around. The road trip to Tupira is a bit on the diabolical side but it also adds to the sense of adventure and certainly brings home the fact that you are heading into an environment that is not like home in so many ways.

We had a great time staying with Brent and his family, they always made sure we were entertained and well fed. Having the choice of doing anything we wanted was amazing, Brent always knew the best spots to surf at the right time and new how to dodge the crowds so we were almost always surfing Read more...

More of the same...good food, good company, everyone treated us well, beer always cold.  Surf a bit wind-affected to start but we took a road-trip about 30 minutes down the coast...head-high, off-shore, clean and perfect lefts.  Swell jumped the second week and ended up 2 - 2.5m waves everywhere Read more...
