I've been to the Mentawai Islands 12 times now on charters. Writes Uge. In that time there has been lots of changes in the area. Boats have come and gone, resorts and camps have sprung up overnight, island politics have erupted, whole islands been sold (for nix) and earthquakes have flattened ports.
But one thing has stayed the same that's for sure -- it's the best place on this planet to score consistent fun waves. I haven't found anywhere else where you can surf every single day, all year round, pretty much no matter what.
...Oh and I did I mention? It's Indonesia, so everything is in your boardies.
