The Mentawai islands of Indonesia appears, when looking at them from the seat of a traditional dugout canoe, like an enchanted land. A heavily forested archipelago of dense jungles, unique fauna and flora inhabited by an ancient traditional animist culture that is often gifted with some of the most perfect waves in the world.
A major issue in this paradise is the lack of waste management systems and education. Both communities and the ocean are becoming littered.
During this expedition, you will join a team of skilled, adventurous and passionate humans ready to undertake an epic project to directly enhance tribal communities, reduce plastic waste from entering the oceans and experience a trip only dreams are made of. Most importantly, you will work directly with local NGOs and stay with Mentawai owned and run eco-retreats to promote sustainable income and a thriving wild environment.
Join us for a 10 day Expedition, where you will be intimately connected to Mentawai ancient wisdom and culture. Guided through a curated experience that deep dives into ecology, economics and politics. Spoilt with perfect barrels, ocean pools for free-diving sessions and jungle treks that will keep you occupied when you're not immersed in the facets of the sustainable project.
