Mentawai Surf Charters aim to keep improving their services and quality standards, working only with experienced surf guides, excellent photographers, and well trained staff to take great care of all guests, ensuring they surf the best waves that the archipelago has to offer.

KAIMANA 2 is spacious and comfortable with several areas to chill out and appreciate the surf during the day.  The surf boat interior accommodates guests in a way that creates an interaction between everybody.  KAIMANA 2 has five sleeping cabins with comfortable bunks and air-con.  The service and especially the meals are top rate; the menu is balanced and rich in flavors to give that extra boost during your surfing sessions.

Your surf guides on KAIMANA 2 have an excellent local knowledge of the waves and the weather in the Mentawais, and are commited to taking you surfing in the best conditions during your trip.  The staff are friendly and always ready to assist you.

Surf and fish and relax in one of the world’s most desirable surf destinations.  Your trip is in safe hands with expert crew and operators dedicated to chasing the best surf the Mentawais has to offer on a daily basis. 

Mentawai Surf Charters (managing KAIMANA 2 from Jan-Jun 2018) also own and operate 'Moon Palikir'.  They have an interest in ensuring your trip runs smoothly and that you are kept happy along the way.  Not only are they dedicated to getting you the best waves but they are also super experienced and dedicated surfers themselves.

The Mentawai Islands - on every keen surfers bucket list

Lying west approximately 150km off the west coast of Sumatra, the Mentawais are a collection of islets that have captured surfer’s attention since they were first pioneered back in the late 80's. The secret has long since been out, and now the Mentawais are known worldwide as the real 'surfer’s paradise' hosting an abundance of world class waves. Whilst the surfing is incredible the Mentawais Islands are also absolutely stunning, hosting many endemic flora and fauna species in untouched and pristine environment. 

If you haven't ticked the Mentawais off your surf trip bucket list then KAIMANA 2 is offering you the opportunity to experience this 'surf mecca' and maximise your surf time. If you are a seasoned Indo veteran then rest assured the guides on Kaimana 2 will get you maximum barrel time with minimum crowds. There really is no place on earth like the Mentawais, with a range surf spots for intermediate to advanced surfers ranging from world class barrels to long workable walls. 

Get your mates amped and contact World Surfaris today to turn your Mentawais dream into reality! The crew have a ‘no effort is too much trouble’ attitude to make sure you will be taken to the right surf spots at the right time.

Optimum surf conditions:

Swell: Sth or SW
Wind: Any type of East

Non Surf Activities

Although surfing is the main activity there are many other things to do during the trip. The Mentawai Archipelgo is one of the most stunning regions on earth. Onboard KAIMANA 2 you’ll have the opportunity to explore the many white sandy beaches and relax on coconut palm fringed shores between sessions. World Surfaris highly recommend going snorkeling and checking out the huge array of tropical marine life and coral gardens in this pristine region. On top of that there’s the fishing. The fishing in the Mentawais is worth the trip alone and even inexperienced anglers will get a genuine buzz from tossing in a lure. Who knows you may even end up catching lunch.

Itinerary

You will be greeted at Padang airport by a representative of Mentawai Surf Charters, and then transported to the vessel. After settling in on-board you’ll meet the very awesome crew and go through a few safety tips and get clued in from the guide. Your surf guide will also discuss what sort of waves your group want to chase and based on the current forecast he'll make some recommendations on where to start your Mentawais adventure.  It could be Playgrounds region in the North firstly then tracking South over the next 12 days to surf the Central and Southern Mentawais breaks or it could be straight to HT's for 6-8' bombs straight off the bat.  

Once KAIMANA 2 sets sail in the evening of day 1 from Padang port, all you have to do is put your feet up or get your head down, wash off some jet lag and ease into the surf adventure of a lifetime. 

The surf guides on-board are dedicated and experienced surfers with large local knowledge and will spare no expense to ensure that you’re in the right spot at the right time in order to get you shacked. The Captain is happy to steam the longer crossings at night (weather dependant), ensuring that the days are spent surfing your brains out rather than travelling.

Hey Anthony.  Yeah got back yesterday arvo, but man what a trip. As a first timer to the surf travel thing and being a lesser experienced surfer, the size and type of wave, as well as the crew and other boys on board, were pretty well perfect for me. I had an absolute blast every day and enjoyed Read more...
