Back in 2009 Lora and Diego decided to set shop in the town of Pei Pei. It was back then when they started turning this little hut into a family gathering Uma (family house) for who would become their loyal employees and their guests. Now the camp enjoys plenty of room and space without anyone being able to build around its mangrove area. Walking down the road you will be able to interact with all sorts of Indonesian traders, Sikereis (local shamans), hundreds of little children running freely playing on the beaches, and surfing the beginners wave that brakes right in front of the camp.
Diego and Lora have been through an amazing journey, to say the least. Staying at par with development, keeping a check on it, with this portal providing a blog where relevant updates on community, surfing, sustainability, and the environment can be accessed by anyone. Mentawai Surf Camp is proud to be the most locally connected operator to the community.
