Surf Awera Resort

Awera Resort is located in the heart of the Mentawai Islands, a beautiful wave-rich region of Indonesia. Surfing the Mentawais is a dream for many surfers and this area won’t disappoint, delivering an array of world-class surf breaks. 

Directly out the front of Awera Resort, you’ll find four surf breaks including a beginner-friendly wave, and an additional 10 just a quick 10-minute boat ride away. At an additional charge, guests can access the world-renowned Playgrounds area, as well as Lances Right (HTs).


Awera Left

A fast left hander, super fun for a couple speed runs across the fairly shallow reef. This wave is one of four directly in front of Awera Surf Resort.

Omak Tidur

A long, slabbing right out the front of Awera Surf Resort with intense barrel sections on good days. This wave can be super challenging, and often seems surfable when it’s not. Always wait for the green light from your surf guide before attempting this one!


A perfect beginner wave out the front of Awera Surf Resort.

Awera Right

A super fun wave, offering up the odd barrel on the first section and a good section for practising turns on the inside. At size it’s a different story, transforming into a much longer and hollower wave.


An enjoyable, playful left near Villa Mentawai. On a big swell, this is a good, mellow option for intermediate level surfers or longboarders.


Another swell magnet, this time a peak, that picks up any available swell. When Telescopes is big and pumping, Iceland can be 2-3 times bigger. A true big wave spot, this wave has been surfed at 20ft and is a great place for an adrenaline rush on your step up.


A heavy and unpredictable left with gnarly barrels over a very shallow, live coral reef. When it links up, it’s a remarkable wave, suitable for advanced surfers only and definitely at high tide.


A fickle wrap-around left that can be challenging. This wave needs a big swell to come to life.


Ridiculously perfect left, easily accessible from Awera Surf Resort, Togat Nusa Retreat and Villa Mentawai. A user-friendly wave with multiple good sections for barrels or turns. Telescopes likes a SW swell with SE winds.


A bowling left in front of Togat Nusa Resort. Scarecrows picks up a lot of swell, and on bigger, heavier days requires a bit of paddling and a bigger board. This wave can offer a good barrel on the inside section after some big carves on the outside.

Seven Palms

Shifty lefts off random peaks. This spot, rarely crowded, picks up plenty of swell but can be hard to surf.
