The Huey – your luxury surf charter in Mentawai – Indonesia
Huey offers uncrowded surf trip to the Mentawai’s from October till March. The Huey has been operating in these waters since 1999, providing surfers with a variety of waves to suit all levels of ability.
Charters go for 10 days and 11 nights. We leave Padang around 9 or 10 pm and arrive in the islands at dawn the following morning. During the tour we travel mostly at night so as not to waste valuable surf time. On the last day we surf till dark, prepare The Huey for the run home and arrive back to Padang in the early hours of the morning.
During the trip you will be looked after by our trained and highly skilled staff. Steve, the owner of Huey will be your host and surf guide. With 15 years experience traveling through Indonesia and its waters he’ll be sure to get you the best waves on offer. Amril, our Indonesian captain is a born and bred Padang local and also has 20 years experience at sea. He knows these waters like no other and has been working on western charter boats for 7 years.
Charters can be extended by 1-4 days and accessing further island chains north is also an option.
