"Mentawai surf boat, with a real soul-surfing experience"

The Kuda Laut is one of the original Mentawais surf boats; a 58 foot motor cruiser built with Sumatran Ironwood, she oozes character and the pioneering spirit. Forget about over-priced floating gin-palaces, if you want a real soul-surfing experience the Kuda Laut is the way to go. With over two decades of experience plying the warm waters of the Mentawais, the crew know exactly where to go to find the best and least crowded waves in every condition. Depending on swell conditions and charter exclusivity it’s also possible to explore further afield, and to hunt out long hollow tubes with empty line-ups in Nias, Telos, the Banyaks and more. This is one of the most wave-rich parts of the planet; world class breaks are literally stacked up one on top of the other, just waiting for you to drop in.

"Comfortable dorm-style cabin with flatscreen TV"

The boat accommodates 7 people in comfortable bunks in a dorm-style cabin complete with flatscreen TV and DVD player. Communal areas and an upper-deck chill out area provide space to enjoy complimentary beers or fruit juices post-surf, whilst watching the sun set on another incredible Indian Ocean vista. If you need a rest from surfing during the day, extra activities like fishing can also be arranged. Packages are for 10/11 nights and are all inclusive. Airport transfers are provided to take the stress out of your journey, while 3 tasty meals (a mixture of Western and Indonesian food) and 5 bintangs per day keep you fresh and fuelled to make the most of every perfect barrel. Reasonable rates and excellent value for money make the Kuda Laut affordable for even the most dedicated surf bums.
