Norman (June 2015)
Fantastic trip was inconsitant for swell but that is luck of the draw next time we go on new or full moonage . Cheers thanks

Brian (June 2015)
We had a great time. Aaron was an excellent surf coach, wise, safety conscious and a very decent bloke. I would be happy to book Oasis again. I thought the accommodation was excellent, and all guests had ample sleeping room, unlike some boats where there is good and bad accommodation and guests take their chances. The boat ran well, was really smooth in the water, and the crew were amazing. The food was first class, and the best testimonial I think was the fact that no one got any form of sickness caused by bad food or water. This is the first trip I have ever had where we had a clean slate regarding sickness. So, all in all, a great trip. Thanks for your extra care and thorough organisation, Rhonda.

David (May 2015)
Well, what a great trip, Gr8 crew and the Oasis was outstanding. Good food every day from Risole (cook) and great service from the crew every day. Aaron was the 1st mate and was always ready willing and able. You will have no issues sending people on that boat with that crew etc.

All transfers and transport worked really well. Between stops etc. (if anything, the waiting times could be shortened if every possible. I fully understand it's all availability and costs etc. So its not a complaint.) Mecure Hotel was a welcome stop when we arrived to get some good rest and a very comfortable place to hang out, pool, breakfast etc till we had to leave.

Thank you for your efforts and kind attention. A JOB WELL DONE!

Hi RhondaWe had a fantastic tripMan the waves were so consistent and the winds settled down after the first view days There were No crowds I mean we surf most breaks with only our boat, which has not happen on any other trip before . The boat is in good working order and properly up there with one of the most comfortable boats I have been on. Crew were good and willing to help at all times. Air Asia was a cheap flight with the delayed flight that’s the gamble you take and all part of traveling.Once again Rhonda thanks you for setting up the trip much appreciatedI am already looking forward to next year’s tripRegards, Paul

This was an incredible trip. every detail was made easy between The Perfect Wave and Oasis. We had great waves and the guide genuinely asked and listened to the guys on the boat about what we were looking for. First boat trip, first time in Indo. I'm not a pro. I wanted solid waves but only chest to a couple feet overhead. I was stoked every day, surfing a couple times a day for 10 days. Pictures of a lifetime with a pro photog on board. In case there's other folks looking for that, I recommend going with Oasis. They're not ego maniacs trying to push everyone over shallow reef...they kept a good balance of keeping everyone happy. Food was amazing and boat was spacious and comfy. Hard to imagine it being better. Very grateful to Daniel and the crew - I'll be back.

The Oasis was a good trip. We didn’t get any solid swells but we got some good waves most days and even caught some decent fish, which was great being able to eat fresh fish. If we were to go back again to the Mentawais I think we would find it hard to go with anyone else. For value for money, the size/space of the boat and Aaron the surf guide all add up to a good trip.

Dear Claire & Ben,I arrived back from the trip a few days ago and just wanted to let you know what an amazing time we all had, everything was fantastic from the crew both here in Aus and also the ground staff over in Padang, everyone was so professional and accommodating but still getting the stoke going which can get hard after a long flight. The crew on the boat couldn't have been better, I work in management with Starwood hotels and can see genuine service when its there and believe me they are working hard over there, well structured shift work ensuring 24/7 service. Great food/bev, entertainment and all other amenities throughout the whole boat. Aaron Wright the Owner/surf Guide was killer, an experienced waterman that shared some great knowledge of the islands and ensured insane waves everyday. The Oasis did well, reliable, safe and a user friendly boat for surfers, easy access to boards and gear and a great tender who's put in the hours with the Photographer.....believe me. All flights and transfers ran smoothly and in all honesty there is not one thing i can put as a negative for the whole trip.From what i gathered all the boys had an insane trip and were so stoked when they left. They scored perfect Macaronis which was basically ever dollar spent worth it in one day. Plenty of good shots for them all and i also did a trade with a videographer for all the video from the good day which they all got too. All together absolute perfect Mentawais trip for all! Once again i thank you both for all your help and this amazing opportunity, I will be recommending the use of the Perfect Wave and the "Oasis" with all the crew and promote in any other avenues possible, I hope to work again with you both and look forward to speaking soon.Many ThanksAndy
