Indonesia: Mentawai Islands

Typical Indonesian boat with international crew accepting a maximum of 12 surfers – plenty of interior comfort and the biggest exterior communal areas

"Indonesian boat and with plenty of space on board"

For some traveling surfers all that might need to be written here is......this boat sails in the Mentawais. This super-iconic, super wave-rich tropical surf destination needs no introduction and is a common dream theme for just about every surfer on the planet. But there is a little more we'd like to tell you which we think may just whet your appetite even further.

The Melaleuca is a typical Indonesian boat and with only a maximum of 12 surfers accepted on board you can be sure of plenty of space all to yourself if you want it – both on board and in the water. The international crew looking after you during your Mentawai adventure includes the legend-who-is, Western skipper Terry.

"Catch the ride of your life or kick back with surf tunes"

Comfort is the order of the day with this surf charter which features spacious communal areas both inside and outside. Lay your head each night in a choice of A/C cabins – the Melaleuca has 2 triple and 3 double cabins – and spend your days topping up the tan on the huge top deck. From here you can watch your friends catching the ride of their life or kick back with some surf-stoking tunes playing through the stereo. If you should need a break from the tropical rays the top deck features plenty of shade too so you can catch yourself a little snooze with a cooling breeze to lull you to sleep.

Entertainment facilities come in the form of TV, DVD and stereo with iPod docking station for those times when doing nothing much at all appeals.

Mentawais means waves....LOTS of waves.....some of the best waves on the planet in fact...... and the Melaleuca means you will be anchored right in front of them. No you are not dreaming – this could all be yours.

The packages offered by the Melaleuca are all-inclusive with additional services such as photography and video-graphy possible.
