The boat also has three bathrooms, a spacious room with television LCD 42 inches, DVD player, snorkel, and stand-up paddle for free use. One of the biggest concerns of Sibon is the hygiene and organization of the boat.

The homestay also offers restaurant service and free internet access. Sibon’s crew is formed by six people.

The captain has an amazing background and knowledge of all the spots in the north of Indonesia. The chef that has worked on many other charter boats on the Mentawai islands has magic hands and makes delicious and well-elaborated meals.

The mechanic is very experienced and worked for many years in various boats on the islands and has deep knowledge of Sibon’s engines and machines. The boat also has two more deckhands to do the daily cleaning and take the clients to the waves with the ding (assistant boat).

The Sibon also has a photographer and video maker who is extremely competent and dedicated, doing beautiful shots from inside the water. Besides that, he is the surf guide of the boat and knows the Mentawai really well by analyzing the weekly swell takes Sibon to the best waves option, always according to the client's preferences.
