We scored uncrowded perfect waves in the Mentawais, the boat was next level, the crew was great they did everything for us, they were so organised. After every surf there was a warm clean towel waiting for you, the food and service was amazing. I would record this trip to anyone. We had two under 13's on this trip there safety was a priority the whole time. Awesome!!!

Boyd (March 2015)
I'd just like to thank Skipper - Niti , the crew and surf guide - Luke for giving us a great trip and putting us into plenty of fun waves with few crowds

Tony (March 2015)
Amazing experience, great waves, food and beers. Thanks to Luke and all the crew for all the excellent service. Will be booking again soon.

Cameron (March 2015)
We booked a trip on the Pelagic for 8 friends, it was quoted correctly, promtly followed up and the itinerary was sent out and it was spot on. We are all stoked with how the trip went and everything that we where told, happened.

Matthew (March 2015)
I've enjoyed my fair share of Indo boat charters, land camps and choose-your-own adventures, but this was the first time I'd used the services of The Perfect Wave. Our consultant was informative and helpful, thorough to a tee, and a memorable part of a most memorable surf trip. Thankyou, I wear my Perfect Wave t-shirt with pride!


I was lucky enough to be on the Jan 9-25 charter. I have been surfing for some 52 years now and the last 2 weeks were probably the best 15 consecutive days of my surfing life. As one of the founders of Gorilla Grip and F.C.S. I have been fortunate enough to surf many countries over many years so I feel the above comment has a little merit. Not only were the waves and weather great, but the boat and in particular the crew were outstanding, always smiling and ever helpful.   Attention to detail was amazing and it was easy to see that they love and appreciate their employment. Nito the skipper is obviously a true professional. Luke our guide was an absolute pleasure and a true gentleman. Nothing was too much trouble and it was a delight to watch him surf and not once at the expense of a wave from a guest. I have just reviewed the disc of photos that  Luke and the crew so kindly provided. Great shots and great coverage. It seems there must have been a camera clicking non stop. The boat itself is a credit to whoever designed it. Anyway, all the very best and thank you for providing a great service.


I had a phenomenal time on the boat. Definitely best trip ever. Your staff was awesome with Nito being such a great captain along with skipper Danny. Anyway, I know most of the guys were saying they couldn't pull off back to back years, but I wanted to grab the few that could and put together a trip for next September. What dates are open? I want to try and make this a yearly thing and believe that the pelagic is the perfect boat to be with.Thank you,John


Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how stoked myself and the whole crew were with our trip on the Pelagic. The call to head to telos certainly paid off - even with the devil winds Danny got us epic waves everyday while only having 3 surfs in 12 days with anyone else - we all had the waves of our lives. The crew were so good and a pleasure to hang with while Wayans food was amazing - maybe just a bit too much though!!!We are in the process of locking down next years crew so will be in touch to secure some dates.Thanks again Alan, the whole trip certainly exceeded everyone's expectations.CheersPat
