August 5 - 17, 2020
We guarantee you'll get the wave of your life on this trip. May that be a big barrel!
This surf-coaching trip is designed for the intermediate and advanced surfers who want to bring more flow, speed and power in their surfing. Video Coaching and Surf Coaching techniques are taught by Rodrigo Machado.
By the end of the 12-days, you will have radically improved your surfing and unlocked a new body awareness. Advanced surf techniques will become accessible to you, making you able to know exactly what to do just at reading the wave, and knowing how to do it.
What to expect?
• Barreling world class waves, rights and lefts.
• Cruising aboard newly built catamaran, King Millenium 2, to bring us quick and comfortably to the spots.
• Radically improve your surfing
• Get epic waves, recorded on videos
• Learn from a World-Class surf coach, Rodrigo Machado.
This surfing program is designed for:
You surf consistently since already few years. You look out for the good swells and occasionally know how to find barrels and throw a spray after a snap. You want to deepen your surf techniques to bring more flow and power in your surfing. You are ready to push your surf to the next level.
You are comfortable in solid conditions (6ft+), not scared of hollow waves and late take offs. You want to improve your surf techniques, ride barrels, and perform more radical surf maneuvers. You are ready to push your surfing to the next level.
Is this trip for you?
We created this experience for surfers who usually have at least 5 years + of surfing, or 2 years of solid and consistent surfing (2 to 3 times a week).
You’ve been surfing consistently for the past 3-5 years, or more. You know that you are able to get the waves you are after, you are physically fit and have spent hours in the water. But still, it doesn’t happen the way you wish it would.
Reef breaks are no stranger to you, you enjoy hollow waves and fantasise at seeing their almond shapes. At times, you even surprise yourself getting in a barrel, but it doesn’t happen as often as you’d wish. You also enjoy long and glassy 4-6 foot waves where you can smash turns. You want to learn how to take off under the lip and find more speed to connect with the next section. You want to get more tubes and ride them better. Maybe, you also want to learn how to perform a round house cutback and vertical re-entry, that’s also possible.You’re actually just a step away from unlocking those manoeuvres.
If you are ready to bring your surfing to the next level, with more flow, power and techniques. And if you are ready to live aboard for 12 nights with like minded surfers from all over the World, all with a common passion for the Ocean and a strong willing to improve their surfing. Then, this trip is for you.
Surfing in the Mentawais, in August
The month of August is one of the most consistent for surfing in Indonesia. We could possibly enjoy up to 3-swells within 11-days, with average wave size ranging from 6 to 8 foot.
We will be aiming for more advanced waves like Rifles, Bank Vaults, Hollow Trees but surf a variety of waves depending on the swell, wind forecasts and the local knowledge of our captain.

Uriel – Ocean Cinematographer
Originally from the French Bask country, Uriel has been spending his past 5-years in Indonesia, “chasing waves and light”. Traveling with the bare minimum you need to stay stoke: a camera, a surfboard and a yoga mat. His mission is to bring awareness to our Oceans and more consciousness to our planet, through creativity and art. And when waves are pumping, he’ll be there sitting in the water waiting for you to exit the barrel.
