Summary

Luxury guided surf charters to the Mentawai, Telos, Nias, Banyaks and beyond. The main goal? To find you the best uncrowded perfect waves possible - every day.

 

The captain is very experienced, having been exploring this area since 1989. The boat is brand new, very comfortable, spacious and air-conditioned. Being a catamaran, it's very stable and does not rock side to side.

Quick Facts

    • brand new 22m power cataraman
    • fast and stable
    • extremely experienced captain
    • very spacious: 3 deck levels

    • typically 10 surfers / 12 night trips

Crystal Clear is a brand new power catamaran custom built for surfing holidays for surfers expecting a top quality surf trip on a reliable, stable vessel.

 

It can take up to 14 passengers comfortably, but the usual surf charters are run with just 10 surfers to keep the crowds low.

One of the best trips of my life! Uncrowded waves in paradise with a bunch of mates and my bro. Life is too short. Get into it.

Chris Howell

Certainly the best and one of the oldest Mentawai surf guides. New boat and crew extremely helpful and competent. Do not hesitate!

Guillaume Cazet
