Mentawais Togat Nusa – Amazing Surf Resort Mentawai’s

If you’ve ever wanted to feel a little Robinson Crusoe then Togat Nusa is the place for you. It’s not easy to get to as its 100 miles from most places in the middle of the Indian ocean on a completely private 12 hectare island called Pitojat Island, part of the Mentawais. The focus here is on relaxing, unwinding and escaping reality. Togat Nusa is truly a sanctuary catering from 4 to a maximum of 8 people. With 4 bungalows spread amongst the palm trees each sleeping 2, you will find the privacy and solitude that you’re escaping to. They also have a main structure, for your meals, drinks and socialising which overlooks a beautiful lagoon ideal for snorkelling.

Pretty much 90% of all of the structures are made out of island materials, using driftwood logs and shells and rocks. The place feels like its been hand made in the traditional style of the Mentawais, but with custom add ons for our western needs. The resort comes with some friendly locals, being a cat and a dog and a monkey, no-one really knowing what it really is, a bit like yourself when you leave. The food is outstanding catering for Vegans, Vegies and Meat eaters. World Surf Adventures highly recommends Togat Nusa for couples and families or chilled out groups. You cannot help but relax here.

For all your surfing needs, you’re sitting right in front of Scarecrows, a superb long winding left-hander that wraps around the coral reef bordering the lagoon, a 5 minute speedboat ride away and you’ll be surfing the well known Periscopes, in the other direction you will come across Iceland, and with a right hander called Suicides close by and great left called 7 Palms, you are spoilt for choice.

Togat Nusa has four bungalows that are built using recycled timbers and driftwood and each bungalow is uniquely designed with a traditional Mentawai concept. Each bungalow can accommodate two guests per bungalow (unless previously organized), for a total of eight guests on the island at any given time. All bungalows have en-suite bathrooms with running hot water, a ceiling fan to keep you cool, antique lighting, and hand built custom furniture and fixtures which were once part of old Dutch fishing vessels. Under the supervision of John E Ocean, Togat Nusa is able to function as a partial eco-resort by maximizing its local surrounding but still delivering a high standard level of accommodation and personal space.

Icelands

Icelands is a powerful left that can handle any size swell thrown at it and works on all tides.  The wave starts with a nice steep takeoff then can have a barrel section on the inside then a ripple bowl to lay down some heavy hacks. Can be surfed by all skill levels as the water is deep. Best with a East/South east wind.

Scarecrows

Scarecrows has many moods depending on the swell direction and tide. This wave is very consistent as is picks up tons of swell and can handle it when it solid.  The wave is perfect for carving down the line with long ripable walls and a few barrel sections then down the end you have the “Curry Bowl” section which starts draining on low tide. The reef is fairly user friendly so can accommodate beginners to advanced. Best with a South East wind.

Suicides

A very quick right which fires along a shallow reef. Best on a North east wind & a high tide.

Telescopes

“Teles” is one of the bests lefts around. It is not as consistent as other spots, however, with a solid South West swell and light South easterlies this wave turns into a tube machine with rippable sections along the way producing long rides up to 200 mts.

Seven Palms

It is a very fun, rippable wave that can barrel on the right conditions. Suitable to surfers of any skill level and for those chasing some deeper barrels can venture up the reef. Great option when everywhere is small. Does not handle above 6ft. Good on all tides, however, gets very shallow on the low.

Jack T, Noosa

Our family stayed at the resort for 10 days and the facilities were excellent. All meals were fresh and the rooms were spotless - the surf was unbelievable with 3-4 ft every day. Even if there was a dry spell for a couple of days, it was still 1-3 ft and magic. Kids loved all the water activities.
