After 10 years fulfilling the expectations of hundreds of surfers in the search for the perfect wave sailing across the archipelago of the Mentawais, Mentawai Surf Charters are now extending their coverage area to keep the dream alive and discover new and unexplored waves. Their newly built STAR KOAT2 will be based in the archipelago of Banyaks, North Sumatra. With plenty of world-class surf spots and the crowd factor way smaller, it is the option for the surfer who wants to be off the beaten track and score BIG.
Built in 2018 under the same standards of his older brother Moon Palikir, this boat was thought thru every single detail to offer our guests the ultimate level in comfort and style on board a surf charter.
The cabins arrangement was designed to fit only two guests in individual single beds. No more hitting your head on the upper bunk bed! You will also find enough plugs to charge all your devices at the side of your bed and your own cabinet to store your personal items.
The living room hosts everyone in great comfort and style. The main room is equipped with a 50″ LCD TV and other gadgets with a huge lounge sofa to chill out and recover from the sun and surf.

About a hundred miles to the west coast of Sumatra lies the Banyak’s archipelago. It doesn’t leave much to envy surf wise from its neighbor, the Mentawais. With plenty of world-class surf spots and the crowd factor way smaller, it is the option for the surfer who wants to be off the beaten track and score high.
This archipelago is a host of some incredible waves, many only accessible by boat. You will surf the incredible Banyak Islands with Treasure Island rights, Bay of Plenty Rights & Lefts, and several others.
Depending on the forecast available during your trip, the surf guide in charge may choose to sail south and you will have also the opportunity to explore some secret spots in Nias and the Hinako Islands' world-class waves ASU, Bawa, and more.
Also known as Treasure Island, this wave provides a long run with three tube sections. Requires a large swell and is a friendly wave with easy tubes and some challenging sections.
When the swell drops too much for Treasures, that's where you move to. A swell magnetic wave that provides tube sections in front of a paradisiac unspoilt white sandy beach.
This fun wave breaks on a perfectly shaped semi-circle reef and offers extremely playful walls and tubes. Mid to high tides and moderate to large swell needed to get it good. Great for intermediate surfers or experienced ones who want to let loose.
A wave for the chargers who want to get barrelled up! Breaks over a super shallow reef bench at the south point of the bay. Wear your booties if you want to surf the low tide!
When the swell direction aligns with the right wind, this powerful wave machine provides one of the heaviest barrels around. Only for experienced surfers.
In the coast of Nias, breaking over a shallow coral bench and providing a speed section for barrels at the drop, turning to a long wall that extends for about 100 meters ending by the channel. This wave works with light to no wind and needs moderate swell.
At the northern tip of tiny Asu island you will find this impressive long and barreling wave on top of a shallow reef. Speed is essential to make some of the pinching sections and it gets heavy at size, which it handles with ease. It requires the exactly opposite wind conditions of Bawa to work with perfection.
It's a challenging, powerful wave for chargers. The location, way out into the Indian Ocean, picks up more swell than anywhere else and transforms a solid SW swell into round, cavernous pits through the inside bowl section.
During this charter, you will be provided with chef made meals in a diversified menu plus fruits, snacks, soft drinks, and mineral water. Vegetarians and gluten-free diets are welcome under request. A 15-cartoon of Bintang beer is also included per charter.
Although surfing is the main activity, there are many others things to do during the trip. The Mentawai archipelago is one of the most stunning locations on earth, most of the Islands have beautiful white sand beaches and coconut trees, surrounded by crystal clear waters, live coral reefs, and a large variety of marine life offering that perfect set-up a snorkeling or just lie down and relax between the surf sessions.
The boats are stocked up with recreation equipment to make the most of this adventurous place to visit. Exploring and enjoying the local nature is a must to do for all guest. The boats have all the toys from snorkeling gear, stand up paddleboards, and few paraphernalia for stretching and warming up. In addition, there is a lot of local handcraft shopping to do with the natives and village visits around the islands.
When the boats are not chasing waves, there are plenty opportunities for relax on board cruising along the islands through breathtaking anchorages. Having your “happy hour” at sunset on the deck, sharing a few drinks with friends, or just chilling, you will have an authentic Indonesia adventure.
