Group of surfers from Japan score HT's and more in the Mentawais
It's becoming usual for us to start the season with the Japanese crew onboard our boats. For 3 years in a row we’ve had them booked at Star Koat and Moon Palikir for a custom 7 days trip around the Ments from the months of January to February.
Top picks from this season
Although 2016 was a year of extreme weather in the Ments with a constant North wind and lots of rain, we were still blessed by many empty barrels and low crowds around the islands...
Life on board and friends for life
Once again, an unbelievable, amazing trip on board Star Koat. Our guests were half Brazilians and half Australians and despite any cultural differences, by the end of the trip we had all become friends for life.
Another great swell brought perfect barrels to the islands
Trip 6 Moon Palikir, from 10 to 22 of May,
had a great swell predicted for the next days, and we scored it!
The perfect reef break fired up 4foot waves and Kian Martin scored high barrels.
Dream destination for any surfer, Lance's Right is a right target for the Mentawai Surf Charters boats. If the swell indicates the correct direction, our boats will point that way.
In its first year as a World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 1,000 event, the perfect reef break of Lance's Right has been completed in firing four foot waves.
A real fairy tail surftrip for gromms
Once again Star Koat hosted the Future Legends high performance surf camp for kids in the Mentawai Islands receiving onboard five young talents hungry for empty barrels and big ramps to land new tricks.
Star Koat scored perfect and uncrowded waves in January.
While all the surfers’ attention is on the Northern hemisphere, more specific on the Hawaiian season, a group of Japanese surfers dreamed about surfing perfect and uncrowded Indo waves in January with the same ALOHA spirit. Up to the task and ready to kick off the season, Star Koat was the boat chosen to host this surf trip to the Mentawai Islands. Time to pull up the anchor and get the 2016 season started.
The peak season in the Islands has being dominate by southerly winds and with another solid swell building up towards half way into our next trip on board Star Koat, Bruno Veiga and the crew start to dream on a perfect chance to surf one of the Mentawai pearls, “The Hole”.
Our Telescopic view from the XXL Swell hitting the Mentawai Islands
The swell was really epic, perfect and great as expected, exceeding the expectations of even the most insane tube riders on the planet. However, the party was not restricted to black belts in the subject, who was well advised could also experience the taste of Mentawai perfection.
10 Ozzys in a Brazilian surf charter!
Not a very usual boat trip around Mentawai: 10 Ozzys in a Brazilian surf charter!
Challenge for a change, the boat was full of good vibes and top blokes coming from Noosa (Sunshine Coast) mixing up with the Indo & Brazzo crew. With lots of experienced surfers on board Moon Palikir, enjoying the idyllic scenery of waves was a walk in the park, before the first consistent run of waves of the season.
