We had a fantastic holiday! Thank you so much again for all your assistance in making our holiday plans run so smoothly. We were lucky enough to get two room upgrades at the Moana Surfrider, which was awesome. Love dealing with you, you are always very professional, amazing attention to detail skills and nothing is ever to much trouble. Look forward to booking our next adventure with you.
Kind regards

This is the third surf trip with “the boys” I have done over past 4 years and I can strongly recommend The Perfect Wave for booking any holiday. The staff (Gina) was extremely helpful and always got back with any questions/info. Friendly / Professional etc and very smooth/easy. The trip (Maldives Central Atolls) was excellent with great local crew and surf guide (Shabu Rocks) and of course great surf!! Super fun!

The best thing about The Perfect Wave is that even if mother nature doesn’t bless you with the waves you dream of, you will still have the holiday of your dreams! Thanks TPW.

Was easy to organise and the online payment system helped this. Found that perfect wave was able to manage well with 12 guys all doing their own thing, in hindsight we’ll all book together! Kept us informed and was calm about the whole payment process. Kept us informed about price changes well in advance due to changes in the dollar. Well done.

I can not thank enough for The Perfect Wave to organise our dream holiday in Kandooma Island. Everything from the start to the end went so smooth and we did not need to worry about anything. Our trip was well organised and my husband, my daughter and I had the best surfing holiday ever. We made so many new friends on the island and Jeremy & Sarah (our surf guides) were amazing. I & my husband recommend the Perfect Wave to our friends who are planning to go on the surfing trip. We definitely go back to Kandooma Island again. Thank you!!!

I was tasked with making a group booking for 9 mates for a boat trip to the Mentawai Islands. Charlie was on the ball from the get go. He made everything effortless and so smooth coordinating all the crew with flights, transfers, hotel recommendations and the style of boat we were after, and nailed it.
Nothing seemed to insignificant and was so helpful with queries coming in from all directions in our group emails. Truly a thorough and professional consultant. Would strongly recommend his services to anyone.
All the best, Andrew Tunbridge

Belinda

I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how impressed I was by the service provided by Gina. She went way out of her way to help us book our trip, swapping/reshuffling flights/schedules many times to try work out the best trip for us, to enable us to stay at Novotel (which was hard as they are mostly closed for renovations), Heaven on the Planet as well as 3 nights in Bali. She was so patient with us not being flexible at all with dates, as we only had that 2 week window we could take leave on.She saved us flying to Bali each way, by suggesting we fly direct from Lombok on Garuda, something I would never have thought of, this also saved us money on flights compared to going with Virgin.She was always cheerful when I spoke to her, even though many times I rung her with difficult things ie changes to schedules etc. My husband was also very impressed when he spoke to her and she explained how the surf guides worked, where the waves were, etc., she had a lot of knowledge on all of this.I guess this is why we always keep coming back to The Perfect Wave. We went once with World Surfaris, but found you guys provide a far better service than them, hence we have booked many trips with you.We look forward to booking many more trips with The Perfect Wave/Gina as you don’t find service like that often these days!

When 10 intrepid surfers, who are getting close to qualifying for their seniors cards, thought it was time to rejuvenate the soul and hit the waves the common view was to hit the Mentawis. In the quest to stay young, but being realistic enough to acknowledge that the number of cutbacks done per trip equate to what we most kids are doing on a single wave, we chose the MV Midas as our craft of choice to chase these waves. Why? Boat speed and comfort – it was fast enough to explore numerous breaks when the wind, tide and the crowds became a factor and comfortable enough to savour the joy of a great days surf.Throw in the bonus that the crew are sensational, food is great, the Bintang is always icy cold, the Skipper knows where the best waves are and that everyone has a focus of making it the best trip possible then you cannot fail to have the trip of a lifetime. The MV Midas did that and more and we have already booked again for the next 2 years as we challenge the theory that it only gets better next time around.Our first trip produced great waves with great friends and watching some of the footage again the other day I couldn’t help but notice the smiles all the boys had on their faces – mission accomplished as we all had the grins we had as kids, the stories get better and the tube ride is still achievable. Life without the thrill of surfing pristine, challenging and perfect waves just can’t be contemplated so if you feel the need for rejuvenation then I recommend you organise your own trip of a lifetime on the MV Midas and let the Perfect Wave Team, especially Rhonda, plan it for you. You won’t be disappointed.

Darren Rogers. Shaper, Byron Bay

I’m SO STOKED to find The Perfect Wave ! Im writing this detailed review cause I’m truly blown away by these guys. I’m a legit customer and Shaper who’s travelled a lot. But never to the place I’m going- alone. I’ve been stressing how to pull it all together. My mate told me about The Perfect Wave. Team member Bruno Parodi has been incredibly helpful in taking all the stress and difficulties from organising my multi-stop trip to the destination I wanted, returning calls promptly, making international calls finding out about new places I was looking at staying, sorted insurance (that covers my boards!), overnight stays , pickups - the works. I dealt with him every call. Now all I have to do is arrive at the airport- follow his itinerary at each airport- then surf my heart out! He’s even providing an emergency 24hr contact line to The Perfect Wave who will help assist ,coordinate ,initiate the emergency insurance assistance in case of trouble. Very handy in such remote places. Double backup. And one of the most awesome points- unlike a usual travel agent, this DOES NOT COST ME A SINGLE CENT MORE than if I booked it all myself !(very very difficult-especially my multi-place trip) - I presume The Perfect Wave are paid by the resorts ,airlines etc for bringing business to them. How cool is that!! Thanks heaps guys you’ve scored a customer for life. Thanks heaps Bruno!
