Our Boats

Sumatran Surfariis is proud to operate traditional Indonesian style boats that have been purpose-built for surfing charters. All our boats are large and spacious, offering lots of covered deck space, and come stocked with all the modern amenities. Onboard, you will find photographers, a few great fishermen, some fantastic chefs, and a team trained in first aid. You’ll be very comfortable and well taken care of by our crew who have extensive experience running trips in these waters.

Each boat is supported by two tenders that include a larger center-console speedboat and a smaller lightweight dinghy. The duel tenders allow us to travel and service multiple surf spots from the same anchorage. This guarantees that you get the maximum surf time and flexibility at each location, and also gives our photogs a chance to shoot footage while also escorting the guests to and from the lineups. For longer trips, we usually travel during the evenings and very early mornings, so no time is wasted. Usually, you awake as we are pulling up at the next surf spot. We will always use safe anchorages at night and continuously contact base camp via radio and satellite phones to check on weather conditions.

Please take the time to check out our boats below.


What our guest are saying…

“G’day Scuzz, how are you mate? I hope all has gone well for you. It’s been a week now that I’ve been home and l’m still surfed out from my time on the Mahogany.
I want to thank you and the crew for the amazing hospitality that you showed me. It truly is PARADISE up there and being able to experience it from aboard the Mahogany was the best possible way. Fede was an outstanding choice for the photographer and I am still blown away by his work ethic.

I had a look at the secret left on YouTube, WOW what a sick wave that is. I definitely want to do another trip on the Mahogany with you and the crew in the future. Until next time Scuzz take care and say g’day to Soojut for me.”

“Dear Scuzz and Danny, I just wanted to say thanks for an incredible experience on the Mahogany mid january 2016. We had some great waves and great times while aboard. The wave forecast was fair, but Scuzz put us in the most ideal spot everyday. We scored! Uncrowded days at Maccas, Greenbush, Rag’s etc. Amazing!

The crew killed it too. Captain Chap, Shugu, Uncu, Randy, Yanto, and a few others made it easy to transition from surf stoke to bintangs to dinner. We ate epic food courtesy of chef Yanto. It was my first SS mentawai boat trip, but will not be my last!”

“I just wanted to thank you for an amazing trip on the Mahogany last week. Your professionalism, experience, knowledge and desire to get everyone the best waves possible made the trip fantastic and I came home stoked refreshed and wanting to book again for the same time next year. It was also a pleasure to meet your wonderful family and I wish you and them a sensational Xmas and a healthy and safe 2016.

Thanks again Scuzz and I will talk with Turtle early next year about planning our next trip..”
