Well known local surfer Trevor Hansen and his son Keane have been living the life surfing the Mentawai’s off the coast of Indonesia.

The actual surf trip was 11 days, with the other 3 days being taken with travelling but Keane said it was the best trip he has ever been on. “There are no words to describe it”, said Keane. “It was absolutely mind blowing….it is really a place one has to go visit and experience. It’s unbelievable and to surf warm water was really cool as well”.

Trevor is a Springbok fisherman and both father and son spend time catching fish when they weren’t surfing.

Keane, who is a goofy foot surfer, was in his element surfing big left hand waves. “I definitely want to return to the Mentawai’s “said Keane. “The boat we stayed on had everything we needed and the food was good but the waves were just awesome!”

The boat Keane and Trevor lived on for 11 days of surf and sun.
