Join us on this opportunity of a lifetime to yoga, surf and explore the breathtaking Mentawai Islands. We have hand selected the perfect resort to host us with more then 30 surrounding waves, with the perfect season in mind for long boarders or intermediate short boarders. This is one of the most beautiful and untouched destinations that this world has to offer, from its amazing coral reefs, white sand fringed islands, lush tropical green jungle to its world class waves. Whether you want to explore the natural tropical paradise, snorkel your days away or surf until you can't surf anymore, SEAFOLK has you covered.
We have exclusive use of the resort, which means we are able to select where and when we surf, and what time suits our group for yoga and other activities. This is a major selling factor, as most others resorts have one boat that must be shared among other guests with all different surfing abilities, not ideal for long boarders or novice surfers. The main factor in picking this resort to host us compared to the others, was for this reason. Not to mention the many other reasons that it is amongst the best in the Mentawais!
Accommodation, food, yoga, coaching, video analysis and unlimited boat usage to take us to the perfect waves to suit our ability are among some of the things all included.
We take a max of 7 guests to make sure you’ll get lots of waves and one on one time. Please note that surfing experience is necessary for this retreat. You must be able to catch your own waves and feel comfortable in the water.
We will have a daily yoga practice in the shala at our beautiful resort, that will help you regain your strength and ease your surfer muscles. Our teacher will incorporate different forms of breath work into the practice that can help you with situations that may arise in the water. We find that the pairing of yoga, breath and surfing go hand in hand in more ways than one. No matter your yoga experience we can cater the practice to you, giving you the challenges, explanations or rest that you need.

The Mentawai Islands are so incredibly special for many reasons, one of them being that they are extremely remote! This also means they can be a little bit of a mission to get too. SEAFOLK will do everything we can to make this experience as seamless as possible for you. You will need to allow for a day on either side of the retreat for your travel. You will fly into Padang the night before the retreat starts. You are responsible for your hotel in Padang that night, however we will assist with the booking and provide transport from the airport. Most likely we will all stay in the same hotel so that you don’t have to feel alone in a strange city. We catch the ferry the next morning (the day the retreat starts) at 7am. On the way back home, the ferry arrives quite late, so again you will need to stay in a hotel in Padang, and then fly out the next morning. It may sound complicated but that’s why we’re here!
To make it stress free and easy for you :)
WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED:
·Mentawai Surf Tax from the Mentawai Government : US$75 per person (non surfer don't need to register)
- Surf photo package if you decide to purchase from the photographer at the end of the trip
For 8 days, 7 nights on our private island including all transfers: $2200 USD
We have done a lot of research to find the most reasonably priced place that we feel is suited for our standard of retreats. Trust us when we say most other places with the same standards are the same price or even more. We believe this experience will be worth every penny! We hope you decide to join us while the Mentawai Islands are still a hidden gem. Unfortunately, this won’t last forever :)
