Summary

Indo Satu is a brand new boat, built and run by the owners of D’Bora. She has the vibe of a traditional Phinisi timber boat but with the latest navigation gear, electronics, and safety features plus the service and wavehunting tactics that has gained D’Bora such a great reputation. Indo Satu runs 12-night, 11-day charters for groups of 8-10 surfers and is guided by the same guys who run D’Bora Mentawai surf charters.

Bret (April 2019)

Wade is rad, really mellow and has put us in the spots the last two years surfing great waves with low crowds, I’ve been really stoked. Also, tons of great photos. I actually wanted to take the D’Bora again to see the difference of the two boats, but have been liking the crew and Wade too much on the Indo Satu. Wade has been the best guide/photographer I’ve had.

John Price - July 2017 

It was absolutely phenomenal.  Every detail of the trip was meticulously designed and the crew was exceptional.  It was a privilege to be on that trip. I'll be back next year as my knee injury does not require surgery (MCL sprain and a lateral bone bruise).  Hopefully we'll get as much swell and you'll be back aboard!  Thank you very much and a job well done! 

Mick Wilson - Aug 2017 

We toured on the Indo Satu in July/Aug 17 and couldn't fault the service. Nick the guide was awesome and the crew were a well oiled machine. Nothing was a problem and Nick's knowledge of the area and of the language and culture added another dimension. The boat was very comfortable and the best looking boat too. Highly recommended for a magical trip to the Mentawais.

Davis Mitchell (July 2016) 

Hi Tom, all back in Queenstown and missing the warm weather and waves. Had a great trip mate so thanks for your hospitality and the time on you awesome boat. Attached are some photo of the Brazzas for your viewing pleasure - will send a few emails to keep size down. 
Looking forward to seeing you here at X-Mas to return the favours.

Andy Salek (July 2016)

Hey Mate, been meaning to write and say muchos gracias for running such a tight ship and being the all-round GC surf charter guy.

I know by Ment standards the swell was pretty passé but we had a choice time and you did an excellent job of making the most of what the swell gods served up.

So hats off Tom, good job well done and nice to have met you and thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Indo Satu.

Hugh Towner (August 2016)

Hey mate, f**k we had such a sick trip! Nick was right onto it...first day into pretty fun 4/6ft HT's then good Maccas, some mental ones at Greenbush and plenty in between! Finished off at solid HT's...pretty much all the boys said it was there best holiday to date and I couldn't argue with that. All the crew were legends and Ruli cooked as good as it was 2 yrs ago!!

Tim Cason (August 2016)

That's f***ing sick Nicko. Thanks so much. Thanks for making the trip unbelievable. Will be in touch.
