Riding the Waves and Living the Dream: A Memorable Escape at Jupy's Surf Camp in The Mentawais.

Updated: Nov 11, 2023

Tucked away in the pristine Mentawai Islands lies a surfer's paradise - Jupy's Surf Camp. This intimate camp faces the famed surf break "Beng Bengs," providing front-row access to one of the most epic waves in the archipelago.

Situated on a secluded beach, Jupy's camp offers both beachfront bungalows and rooms in the main guesthouses. No matter which you choose, you'll be only a few steps from the raging (or friendly) swell, and uncrowded beach. There is nothing like surfing all day just to drift off to sleep under a ceiling of stars and then wake up to the sound of rolling waves and coffee brewing. We highly encourage you bring a great attitude; there are no bad vibes allowed here.

During your stay, follow the rhythm of the tides, as long as you watch out for Dry reef- surf these "mystery" famed barrels in the morning, rest in your hammock by afternoon with a Bintang, then watch fiery sunsets with new friends from around the globe. When you've had enough of your mate's drunken banter, you can paddle out to 4 other renowned breaks just minutes away. There is just so much to explore in this remote part of of the world, but be careful and mindful, as safety should always be a number one priority when going on a Surf Trip. We highly recommend that you look into Travel Insurance, if something goes sideways you will be glad you have it.

Back on land, Jupy's friendly staff take care of every need at the camp so you can focus on surfing and catching a buzz. Savor delicious home-cooked meals on the lanai while you snack on fresh tropical fruit or chat up a new love interest. Stay hydrated with endless drinking water and cold Bintangs after your sessions. Keep in mind they have worked very hard to restore their kitchen recently. Taking time to do all the repairs on a minimal budget is a testimony to Jupy's strength and dedication to keeping this dream alive.

By keeping the camp small and casual, Jupy fosters an easygoing, communal vibe. Lifelong bonds are formed trading waves and travel tales long into the night. This is the Mentawai surf experience in its purest form. Don't be surprised if you end up making life long friends while surfing here. A lot of memories can be made while sipping on beer and talking about life's riddles under the stars with a person you never would've met if it weren't for this particular Surf Trip experience.

With Jupy's unique lodging, insider location, and chilled-out atmosphere, Jupy's Surf Camp delivers a perfect balance of adventure, waves, relaxation and camaraderie. There's no better place to soak up the magic of the Mentawais than this tropical surfing nirvana.

We all crave an escape from our digital lives and a chance to connect with like-minded wave-riders in beautiful settings. Surf camps deliver these precious experiences. By lending support, we pass the stoke to future generations.

The surf camp vibe is irreplaceable. With a little help, their open-air bunks, hammocks, and tropical vibes can continue transporting surfers for decades to come. Let's band together to preserve surfing's purest getaways. We are currently looking for more ways to get Jupy's camp to thrive during peak surf season, not just survive. Just messaging him on Facebook is a small way to help see what his needs are. For more information feel free to reach out.
