Summary

Access Banyaks, Telos and the Mentawai island chains, blessed with world-class surf, on board this fantastic, spacious vessel. What's even more exciting is the fact that one of the owners, Doris, has been surfing these waves since 1974. You hardly could be in better hands.

 

What awaits you on board is lots of space incl. 2 dining areas, 8 comfortable a/c cabins, plenty of chill out space and a talented, excellent chef cooking up a storm after each surf session. Upon request, the team can also deliver a masseuse, a yoga instructor or even a total organic food / holistic package (extra cost).

Karl (May 2018)

All you can eat, drink, sleep and surf, all I had to do was live the dream. We are all booked in again for next year, just do it! Massive ups to Capt Jonny, Barbs and the crew of Santana Laut.

Daniel (June 2018)

I would like to personally thank the amazing staff and complement the efficiency and attention to detail that was displayed during our recent 11 day surfing trip through Mentawai breaks.
As a group have been on over ten trips on four different boats and collectively feel the Santana laut to be the best. The food is out of this world and it baffled myself and the rest of our group how Yopi and his crew could pump out magnificent food three times a day.
The remainder of the crew always attended to everyone’s needs without question or prompting. Johnny the captain and half owner of Santana laut has amazing knowledge and experience and can predict what conditions will suit waves and was able consistently put us there well before any other boats.
