Jiwa pride themselves on making your surf charter experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. On arrival at the airport you will be welcomed by a Jiwa representative and driven to the port where you’ll meet your guide and crew for the trip. Once aboard you’ll get the low down on the vessel, look at the charts, consider the swell and weather forecast and discuss the best wave options. Jiwa aims to have you arriving at the surf at first light the following morning. Sleep off the jet lag, recover from the journey and wake up to the first waves of the trip – Perfect!
The next 11 days will see you surfing your way around the islands. Part of the beauty of this area is the density of world class breaks, meaning there are a variety of options available on any given day. Eleven days will provide plenty of time to experience all that the islands have to offer.
