The people behind Telo Surf Camp, the 2 completed Villas and whats currently being built

About Telo’s Surf Camp Owners & Staff.

Australian & Indonesian Surf Charter Experts

Sooly, Mel and their 2 kids Shannon and Keegan moved out to the Telo in 2014 to escape the hustle and bustle of Padang life.

After 9 seasons straight onboard Huey Sooly needed a change of pace and somewhere awesome to bring up the kids.

Coming ashore at Sipika during a Huey trip with some mates from WA and chatting with some locals Sooly found out there was some land for sale.

Couple of months later the deal was done and by January 2014 a shack was built and building commenced on what you see today.

Fast forward 7 years and we’re ready to take a max of 6 guests in 2 rooms and our Dual Family room is well under construction to cater for 2 large families, a bunch of good mates – or even a surf clinic/team.

Our RSL (Retired Skippers Lounge) right on the beach is getting closer to completion where we’ll cater for meals, drinks and your favourite sports channels will be available.

We have amazing snorkelling, spearfishing and the lagoon at the tip of Sipika Point is amazing for paddle boarding. The tip of the point has a beach that needs to be seen to be believed – its owned by Telo Surf Camp so its on another level for beauty and privacy.

Telo town is 20 mins by speed boat. Spend a day riding a bike around the island, interact with the locals or have a beer at the Telo pub.

Our Spot (Sipika Island) is Centrally Located

We’re perfectly positioned smack bang in the middle of the Telos. GT’s, Misho’s, all the known waves (and a few unknown spots 🤫) are only a short speed boat ride away.

The Villas

Comprising of 2 seperate rooms, the Villas can sleep up to 6 adults or a combination of 2 couples and 2-4 kids.
