Just arrived yesterday from our trip on board Star Koat.
The trip was amazing! Pumping and uncrowded waves almost everyday! We surfed Green Bush, Hideway, Bintags, Lances Left by ourselves! No boats around :) the guests where pretty stoked.
I didn't forget to give an extra care to your friends Nicholas e Craig, really nice guys, it will be good to hear their feedback. Tatiana couldn't be onboard so I didn't do any videos, but I got some nice pics.
Anything else you need, just let me know. Always a pleasure to help you guys.
Owner / Operator - STAR KOAT Mentawais Surf Charters
On another multi-cultural trip aboard Star Koat we scored classic conditions and uncrowded waves. We literally found ourselves living what we surfers all dream about! Our guests came from Dubai, Spain, Brazil and USA and they couldn't believe their eyes. They were rapt watching so many perfect waves, one after the other and only our boat in the channel.
As it wouldn't be enough, we got 3 swells during the trip and so our guests were nearly with no strength left to paddle in the last days! On our first stretch of the trip the plan was to get the first swell in the southern part of the Mentawais but on the way we realized the other boats were thinking the same and so we changed direction up north. We stopped in Green Bush for the first swell and continue stopping along the way up to the north where we were surfing by ourselves almost all of the time.
Our guests that where here for the first time, I can tell they got the kind of trip that will be hard to match. I was forced to explain to them that what was happening at the moment was something unusual and that we all should be grateful by scoring amazing waves as Green Bush, Hideaways, Lance’s Left and Bintangs in perfect conditions with only our boat at the channel.
Saeed Allabbad, a regular client (after being on many trips in the Mentawais) confessed we overcame the expectation and that he never thought it could get any better! I need to confess I was thrilled myself with the constancy of the waves and absence of crowds on this trip.
Regardless all that, the highlight of the trip was the easy integration of everyone and how easy it was despite different cultural backgrounds to become friends with each other from the very beginning of the trip with an unbelievable vibe until the end of the trip.
A lot of fun, perfect waves, cold Bintangs and lots of laughs, what else would you ask for on a surf trip?! Stay tuned for what has been one of the best seasons in the Menatawais for years! Masura bagata!
