THE MENTAWAI ISLANDS - MANGALUI CHARTER
Mangalui Ndulu means “Wave Searcher “in local Nias dialect. She is a magnificent 84 ft timber sloop, custom built for the sole purpose of searching for waves.
Charters are normally scheduled as 11 or 14 day trips as we`ve found over the years to be a good length of time and this usually coincides with at least one or two swells. The Mangalui is very flexible regarding both its schedule and its charter destinations. Mangalui has a larger fuel , water , fridge and freezer cap than most allowing trips to run for a longer time and further distances – chasing waves up and down the whole Sumatran coast. Magalui can reach many different islands chains , not just the Mentawais . The Mangalui is not a milk run trip , we offer a real surfers voyage. So pls contact us to create your own holiday idea.
“The Foxy Lady” traveling at 35knots easily with a Yamaha 200hp on the back is Mangalui `s speedboat who gets you there quickly when the wind swings or when you are in a area with a few different wave options. The Foxy is also great for afternoon deep sea fishing…
