There are many ways $15k can enhance one’s quality of life: Debt relief, a new set of wheels, the round-the-world adventure of a lifetime, cosmetic enhancement (for yourself or your partner). And now, thanks to ‘experience’ vendor website, it can afford you one Mentawai boat trip with recent World Tour retiree and surfing culture-shifter, Taj Burrow. You’ll cast off into surfing’s greatest archipelago aboard luxury cruiser The King Millenium II, tapping Bintangs with Teebs, professional lensman John Respondek and videographer Nick Atkins, who’ll be documenting the entire seven-day surfari (so… don’t choke). But this adventure isn’t all about tag-teaming Macaronis with one of the world’s best. There’s a philanthropic angle, too – a slice of that 15 large you drop will help fund Taj’s reti-… uh, sorry, support Surfaid to improve nutrition, water quality and malaria education in the area. You’ll score a meal in Padang with the mastermind behind the organisation, founder Dr Dave Jenkins, as well.

This sound good to you? Set sail.

So you’ve got change from that 15? Here are some other things you can indulge in thanks to Get ‘surf fit’ with Luke Stedman, train/get hurt with rugby league star Benji Marshall, rollerblade in Bondi ($180 lol), MMA train with Richie Vaculik, bodyboard with lid-legend Ben Player or shape a board with Mr Hayden Shapes himself.

In addition to coercing you into dangerous waves, you’ll need to brush up on your drinking prowess, this man knows what he’s doing.
