The Sibon Baru’s has a crew of 6 looking after the needs of surfers. The captain has an amazing knowledge of the islands, waters and surf breaks across the north of Indonesia. The chef has worked on charter boats on the Mentawai Islands for many years has incredible kitchen skills, creating delicious and complete meals. The mechanic is very experienced and worked for many years in various boats on the islands and have deep knowledge of Sibon's engines and machines. The two deck hands are friendly and helpful with all tasks, such as cleaning and running the surf transfers out to the breaks.
Depending on the conditions and your preferences, Sibon Baru can take you surfing at places so perfect you'll think you're dreaming; other spots heavy enough to challenge even battle-scarred Indo veterans; and mellow waves that are just right for a good, fun surf and without the crowds that you have to deal with at home.
