Wavepark exceeded my expectations for a surf trip in every way possible. The guides were knowledgeable, fun, and always going above and beyond to make sure the whole crew got plenty of great waves. The food was outstanding. The accommodation was incredible. The entire trip there still feels like a dream. If you're looking to book a trip to the... More

Sadly, on my way home after 10days at WPM. The crew there have things running like a well-oiled machine. Couldn't fault the resort quality, transfers, food & overall service. The local and mainland staff were a delight, their warm hearts and cheeky laughter play a big part in the resort's success. Waves - deliberately choose a late season trip to... More

Wavepark is one of the oldest and therefore most experienced operators in the Mentawai, and it is this depth of experience that shines through its entire operation.

This place is literally perfection. Accommodation, facilities/infrastructure, location, natural beauty, perfect wave you can paddle to, and hands down the best service I have ever received in more than 20 years of trips. What is unique is the people and staff. Somehow they have mastered giving immaculate service whilst being totally understated; it's a vibe that just oozes class and... More
