From the moment you step on board the 84 ft Mangalui Charters, you’ll know you’re in the right place for an epic surf trip. Purpose-built for hunting down waves within the coastal islands off Sumatra, the team on board Mangalui Charters knows exactly how to organise a memorable surf charter and they have hosted the world’s best surfers time and again.
At the helm of Mangalui Charters is Sumatran surfing pioneer Mark Dyet, who has been on board since the early 2000s, making him one of the most experienced and knowledgeable surf guides in the entire archipelago. Mark is so good that many surfers just come back to take another surf trip with him!
A Popular Surf Charter in Indonesia
Operating in the Mentawais, Telos, Nias, Hinako and the Banyaks since 1996, Mangalui has been doing surf trips up and down the coast, from Panaitan Island in West Java, up to the northern islands of Aceh (North Sumatra). This vessel is well-known in the region and guests return year after year to experience everything this Indonesian surf charter has to offer.
Mangalui Charters has a spacious dorm-style cabin that comfortably sleeps eight guests, with plenty of space on the main deck or in the saloon for guests to stretch out. The charter also has one of the fastest tender boats in Indonesia, ‘The Fox Lady’ which can reach speeds of up to 35 km per hour, perfect for travelling between surf breaks as quickly as possible.
Guests on board Mangalui Charters can take advantage of a spacious dorm-style cabin that comfortably sleeps up to eight guests. There are also two extra beds in the saloon if you have a larger group of up to 10.
On board Mangalui, you can relax in the spacious saloon or on the main deck. The service-focused crew will ensure you have everything you need and bring a fun, positive vibe to the surf charter.
You’ll be eating like a king/queen on board Mangalui Surf Charters, with a range of Western and Indonesian-style cuisine served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A full-time chef, who learned his trade at the world-renowned Latitude Zero Resort, serves up a variety of delicious meals, including locally caught seafood; Spanish Mackerel, Giant Trevally and Mahi Mahi are a specialty!
Surf Mangalui Charters
Mangalui Charters is well-known as one of the best surf charters in the Mentawai Islands, if not the world! The crew knows how to find the best waves on offer and goes above and beyond to ensure charter guests surf the best waves of their lives.
With years of experience in these waters, the crew knows where to go in every tide, swell and wind. Their knowledge and skill at hunting down waves has guests coming back to the Mangalui year after year.
Mentawai Islands Surf Breaks
Surfers on Mangalui Charters have the option to surf more than 30 to 40 waves, with the boat travelling as far as it needs to find the best waves and empty lineups on any given day. Whether you’re travelling in the Mentawais, Telos or further north, the crew understands the conditions and will take you where you need to be to surf epic waves and make unforgettable memories.
The Mentawai Islands is a tropical haven for surfers and non-surfers alike, with palm-fringed coastlines, clear waters and beautiful sunsets.
Fishing is a popular non-surfing activity aboard Mangalui, and with the help of the 200hp tender ‘Foxy Lady’ you will be able to trawl for miles in order to catch dinner fresh from the ocean.
