Is it for beginners?

No. This is the mentawais. It’s absolutely surfable at an intermediate level, but for beginners, not so much unfortunately.

Swell Size?

We go early season to beat the crowds, so we expect consistent surf in the 2-4 foot range. Perfect conditions to learn better technique… and still grab a few barrels! And the Ments gets crowded peak season nowadays… ugh.

Will we be running another one any time soon?

No. I work only with the best technique coaches, so it comes down to scheduling. The earliest we may run another female surf trip would be late 2019 or 2020.

What do you learn?

You get coaching from myself and Clayton Nienaber (world class technique coach and surfboard shaper). Everyday is a mix of coaching, video analysis, movement training, fun, surfing, tissue release, yoga, Foundation Training, in the water coaching, more surfing, lots of food, nutritional coaching…… Better health and better surfing.


Do you still have questions? I’d love to hear from you, so give me a shout.
