The Mentawai Islands offer some of the best and most consistent waves in the world. Our vessel has been operating in these waters since 1999 providing surfers with a variety of waves to suit all levels of ability.
Our regular Mentawai charters go for 10 days and 11 nights leaving Padang around 7 or 8 pm and arrive in the islands at dawn the following morning. During the tour we travel mostly at night so as not to waste valuable surf time. On the last day we surf till dark, prepare Huey for the run home and arrive back to Padang in the early hours of the morning.
Our customised charters can take you further afield to lesser known spots North or South of Padang. We regularly pick up and drop off our guests in Sibolga or Bengkulu providing more opportunities for less crowded surf and a different kind of surf adventure.
Since 2005 she has undergone 3 refits. New engines were installed in 2009 and just recently new generators, propellers and numerous improvements have been made. We are constantly renewing components and improving Huey to give our guests the best possible Mentawai experience. Our safety record is flawless and we have never lost a day due to breakdown.
Back up systems for every operating system are on hand. With 12 seasons under her belt Huey has been fully setup and constantly improved to make your journey as comfortable as possible. Air Conditioning in all 3 sleeping cabins, plus a dedicated TV room with full surround sound, satellite TV and 800 movie library your surfing downtime is in absolute luxury.
Our above deck dining area with full views to the surf is a perfect spot for reliving those stories of epic surf and our huge shaded front deck area is a favourite for kicking back with an afternoon drink or just lazing about in the hammock with a book.
Khairul our Chef and all round good guy will provide the food. His cooking is second to none. After finishing his trade certificate in Bukkitingi he started work on Huey in 2000 and has been with the boat ever since.
Yudi is our kitchen hand and maintenance man, he’s been with us since 2013.
Brothers Randi and Ool are our youngest members of the team and started also in 2013.
Peak Season May June July August September. Best for experienced surfers who don't mind charging.
