Lakey’s Lines: Stoked in the Mentawais

Hey guys,

So I finally made it to the Mentawai Islands (Click Here for a Map)!! I just got back from Indonesia a couple of days ago and want to tell you about it.

You guys might remember me telling you about my dream of going to the Mentawais when I listed my top-10 best Christmas presents last year. This was the first time I ever went over there, and I always have wanted to go so bad, so when I got asked to go by Nike 6.0… I was so stoked! It was like Christmas in May!

The Pelagic is one of the better known charter boats to take surfers on trips through the Mentawais in Indonesia.

The one thing about going to the Mentawais is that you have to stay on a boat! So I was on a boat in perfect waves with all of my friends for 11 days.

I have a rough life, huh? Haha, just kidding!

It was so amazing… it’s like heaven on earth for surfers.  At first, I was like, “geez, on a boat for 11 days!” But the boat that we stayed on, called the Pelagic, was so nice. It was truly amazing.

There were eight crew members including the captain. The whole crew was great but the cook was unreal. It was some of the best food I have ever tasted for sure.

Every morning french toast or breakfast burritos with cheese, avocado, and mixed veggies! Then lunch would be so amazing as well. If I named everything we ate it could take a while. But one of the things I thought was especially cool was where we ate. We just sat at the table on the deck and watched perfect waves over and over again with nobody out, knowing that you are about to go surf there!

Overall, It was one of the most amazing trips of my life for sure, and I am so excited to go back next year and surf different waves that I didn’t get to surf this last trip.

Hope you guys are all good and I’ll write again soon!

Happy Summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!
