A true surf camp experience

Surf camps nowadays are more geared toward glamping than hardcore camping, but some of the locations can still be pretty rough. The surf camps at G-Land in Indonesia, for example, might provide wifi and cold beer. Still, they are nonetheless on the edge of Java’s jungles, and these jungles will always have wild creatures therein and most of the amazing reef breaks are only suitable for advanced surfers.

The surf camps in the Maldives, on the other hand, are incredibly luxurious, with modern facilities and sumptuous accommodation and dining options. These surf camps are expensive, though, as you pay for your luxury.

The surf camps in the Mentawai Islands, sitting 100 km west of Sumatra’s mainland in Indonesia, are plentiful these days. Every tiny island has some sort of resident camp on it. These camps are all about surfing excellent waves. There is very little else to do, and not much in the way of entertainment or diversion of the waves aren’t firing. They are the real deal for a surf camp based on getting the best barrels of your life, but you need to be aware of unforeseen things that can happen in these remote locations and good travel insurance is a necessity. 

It is always a good idea to take a few luxuries when going to a surf camp. Sometimes, they run low on supplies and can get cut off for a few days if there is storm activity around. Maybe it’s a bottle of good whiskey, or perhaps it’s just a few packets of sweets and chocolates. What might seem trivial on the mainland could turn into gold at a surf camp. If you’re not sure, the default is to take something extra just in case.
