Captain & Crew

Tengirri is guided through the Mentawai Islands by Australian Phil Kiem (originally from Newcastle). Phil has been travelling throughout Indonesia for the last 15 years and has been working on TENGIRRI since it begun in 2004. Phil currently holds an Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) Master up to 24metres (Master 5) captains ticket and AMSA Marine Engine Driver 3 ticket. Phil speaks Indonesian fluently and has excellent knowledge of when and where the surf will be pumping and will take care of all logistics once you arrive in Padang. 

Luke Cromwell hailing from Wales is our 2nd captain. A keen goofy footer with a good eye for photography. Luke holds a current Yachmaster Offshore ticket and has been working on Tengirri since 2014. Due to an ever increasingly busy charter schedule Phil and Luke do alternate charters. Along with our merry crew he will ensure you have the trip of a lifetime! 

We also depart port on every charter with an experienced and qualified (Master Class 5 Seaman) Indonesian skipper. We also have two Indonesian deckhands and a cook who are there to help you with anything you need. 

Our crew are all experienced and friendly and will do their best to make sure you have an enjoyable holiday and get the waves of your life!!!

Hi Rhonda Would guess the other guys have probably been in touch by now but I just wanted to drop my two cents worth in regarding our trip onboard the Tengirri.Where to begin… right from the start with the pick up at the airport the guys where more than accommodating taking me into town to pick up some gear before dropping me of at the hotel .The welcome onto the boat was great the crew keen and friendly. We were made to feel comfortable and at home right off the bat . Phil and the crew dropped us straight into the surf the next day and every day for the whole 11 days. Phil ever ready to motivate us oldies into the water.Fantastic waves ,fantastic food and fantastic service I doubt that there would be more you could ask for . The food a great mix of western and Indonesian and never the same twice ,quite the achievement on a boat. I can recommend Donald’s sashimi ability to any one, the tuna a delight under the beer tent.I feel that I can speak for all when I say we would highly recommend travelling through the Mentawai Islands with this CrewI would appreciate you passing my thanks to Phil ,Oscar, Donald, Inn and Benny for providing such a memorable holiday.Brett

Hi Rhonda,Just wanted to thankyou for setting us up with Phil & his crew on Tengirri.Phil documented our trip with his camera & video which was nothing short of the professional.The boat was very comfortable with all the luxurys you would ever need for a good trip in the Mentawais.Phil had us at the best surf with the minimum amount of guys in the water all the time. He was always keeping usup to speed with where we were going next and what to expect.Oscar the Captain is a Master 5 captain that comes from the Mentawais. Phil certainly has a the best Captain in the islands.Donald the cook blew us away with his cooking. Surfed my heart out and came back to Perth 1kg heavier.Inn & Benny the crew were always waiting close by to get us whatever we needed. After looking at the other top end boats I was happy to see that we were on the best boat out there for up to eight guys.Thanks again for getting us onto such a good boat.Rod

Hi Gina,Chris from Tassie here, just got back from our trip on Tengirri, and I just wanted to thank you for recommending that boat.We received excellent service, clean living, great food and quick access to some awesome surf breaks. But above all that, they brought us to where the waves were most likely going to be firing and we scored some wicked barrels particularly at Rifles 6ft perfection and Lances left, and every day we celebrated these waves with great food and plenty of ice cold Bintangs.At the end of the trip Phil provided all of us with DVD of our surfs and disk full of photos all for free!!!Thanks again for the great package you provided us with and we will recommend you guys to our mates.Till next time,Chris – TasmaniaAug09
