About this Surf Charter

Overview

The Mentawai Islands offer some of the best and most consistent waves in the world. Huey has been operating in these waters since 1999 providing surfers with a variety of waves to suit all levels of ability.

HUEY is an 82-ft ex-customs patrol vessel customised for surf charters. Built and launched by the Japanese Government in 1978, HUEY is one of the faster boats serving the Mentawai Islands. Finishing in March 2009, Huey underwent a four month refit which involved rebuilding the main engines, plus new propellers and shafts to ensure reliability and safety for their guests. She is powered by two V8 Nissan 400hp diesels so getting there in all weather conditions is never a problem.

Captain & Crew

Steve (nicknamed Sooly), the owner of Huey has over 15 years experience traveling through Indonesia and its waters. He’s a Mentawai veteran and runs one of the most well respected charter operations with a massive repeat client base. For 2014 Sooly will be taking a well earned break so he has spent the 2013 season grooming his replacement guide. Sooly says “My new guy Benny is an absolute legend and I have been training him up in all things Huey. I've been looking for someone for a while and Benny has ticked all the boxes. I've even showed him all my secret spots”

Aussie born and bred, Benny, has guided for 2 years on Navistar and 2 years on Bintang as well as most of the 2013 season on Huey with Sooly.

Amril, Huey’s 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.

Khairul the Chef and all round good guy will provide the food. His cooking is second to none. After finishing his trade certificate in Bukitingi, he started work on Huey in 2000 and has been with the boat ever since.

Amon and Hendra the two deckhands and dinghy drivers, also have lots of experience on the ocean.

Just back from an epic trip to the Mentawais with 9 mates on board the great charter boat, the "Huey". The boat was awesome, great crew, excellent surf guide and the quantity and quality of the food blew the boys away. Scored great uncrowded waves, especially as we surfed by ourselves for first 3 days of the trip. Got to surf so many different breaks throughout the Mentawai Islands chain. Thanks to Charlie at Perfect Wave for organising a great trip. Cheers Gav Clark

Wow, what an amazing trip. The Huey is all time. Ments off season was unreal with perfect just overhead waves every day and clean off-shore. Steve (Sooly) the boat owner and our host for this trip was fantastic. He knew exactly were to go with tides, winds and swell and we scored every day for the week. This photo is of me on Macaronis which Sooly was kind enough to take!! Nice one mate! The food was great too and I would highly recommend this charter for anyone in the future. The boat, tender, crew etc was everything and more that I imagined. See you next year boys!

Rhonda at Perfect Wave travel organised everything from start to finish and the whole trip ran like clockwork. Huey Surf Charters were unreal. The captain Steve Sewell knew the place like the back of his hand and in particular tipped us into spots that were pumping with minimal crowds. I still cant get over how many surfs I had on my own or with only a couple of guys out. I actually surfed Maccaronis on my own for and hour and then another hour with only my son and I. Although the Huey wasnt able to travel, Sewelly organised another boat which was more than adequate, and his staff were fantastic, Karool the cook was awesome and Amon the fist hand couldnt try any harder to help anyone out and never stopped smiling. Overall an awsome experience for my first trip to the Mentawais.
