Burgerworld Surf Spot

Burgerworld or less commonly known as Koroniki Right is the go-to surf spot when everywhere else is flat.

An iconic surf break situated on the tip of a small deserted island in the Playgrounds area of the Mentawai’s, Burgerworld is easily recognisable due to its distinctive backdrop and long playful walls.  Although this spot can’t deal with too much swell, it will handle a whole lot of fun.





What kind of wave is Burgerworld?

One of the most fun waves in the Northern Mentawais, Burgerworld is a long, clean right point break. A long open wall ripe for maneuvers opens up after a short, steep, and often barreling take-off. Surrounded by a near paradise environment, Burgerworld is not only world class but picturesque. Great for everyone from intermediate surfers to pros.

Paddling out at Burgerworld

The only way to access Burgerworld is by boat. A clean and easy point break, you can catch waves just about anywhere down the line but look for channels in the reef to access the main peak.

Regardless of your experience, reef-related injuries are not a matter of if, but when. Reef cuts and infections are a big deal…They require immediate attention to avoid countless health problems.

What is the beach like?

Although the Playgrounds area of the Mentawai Islands is renowned for its incredible beaches, you won’t find much beach to rave about on this small uninhabited island.

Where should I stay?

Burgerworld is a minimum 20-minute boat right from any of the surf camps in the Playgrounds area. So considering you’ll be surfing Burgerworld in between swells (when the more popular spots aren’t firing) you won’t be booking your accommodation with this spot top of mind.


What else do I need to know?

There is a less commonly surfed lefthander on the opposite side of the island known as McDonald’s. It is worth checking if you’ve come this far and likely something you can surf with just a few mates.
