Travel with purpose – Mojocares
Travel connects people, destinations & experiences. We’re all looking for deeply enriching experiences that delves deep into the DNA of the communities to which we travel, and hope to leave a hint of goodness in our footsteps as we leave.
In 2018, Mojo recognised the growing desire of our travel community wanting to do more good when they travelled.
“We’d go surfing in Bali and plastic pollution is a visible problem on land and in the sea. With 8 million metric tons of plastics entering the ocean every year, the problem is obvious,” says Chief Fun Officer & fearless Mojo leader Nat Folkes.

But, what’s the solution?
Through a collaboration with our dedicated Mojo team & our loyal community of Mojo travellers, Mojocares was created to combine epic adventures, surfing, diving & cultural experiences beach cleanups & ocean conservation.
“We want to give our travellers an EPIC time, catching awesome waves, while helping the local communities we travel to by cleaning up the ocean. It’s all about individual impact, if everyone made small changes to reduce their impact daily, then we would cultivate real movements for change,” says Folkes.
Mojocares has teamed up with Byron Bay Surf Festival to take 2 crews on a 12-day Mentwais Islands surf adventure departing on the 9th of August & 23rd August.
The Mentawais Islands is arguably surfing’s Mecca, with seventy islands and islets making up the 150km western coastline of Sumatra, Indonesia. With perfect consistent waves year round, it isn’t hard to see why surfers flock by boat to the region every year.
On a world scale, The Mentawai Islands has a 91% chance of scoring epic waves. Compared with Hawaii (76%) and Australia around 80%. With warm water and a variety of perfect waves, the Mentawai’s has it all.
If your dreaming about perfect waves, warm weather and a crew of good humans get on board the 12 Day, 11 Night Surf Adventure starting in Padang, West Sumatra, where you will be picked up from the airport by your friendly local driver who will take you back to your first nights hotel accommodation in Padang. From here you can explore Padang before heading out the next morning to Siberut by Fast Ferry. Once you arrive in Siberut its a boat trip to Mojosurf Camp with a 45min Speedboat ride through the mangroves and/or via ocean, depending on tide level and swell conditions.
The adventure combines epic waves, yoga, local cuisine – with beach clean-ups and rad people to make memories that will last a lifetime.
