KaimanaCharter in Mentawai Islands
The Nusa Dewata Surf Charter is the first original timber boat built in Indo especially for surfing and has been completely renovated plus lengthened and widened. It was selected as one of the 4 vessels chartered for the Surfer magazine / OP pro contest in Mentawai and has been featured in numerous videos and mags.
Whenever there is wind we use our sails which helps for stability, economy and adds to the aesthetic value of the trip. The owner personally guides on most of the trips and will help you at the gun point if you like to take the drop.
The Nusa Dewata offers you comfortable, fully airconditioned dorm style accommodation with a marine toilet with shower and an outdoor shower for after the surf. The 17 inch aluminium speed boat will take you out surfing, fishing and snorkelling. Extensive snorkelling gear and game fishing equipment is available.
The Nusa Dewata surf charter is in perfect condition as the engine & genet have been rebuilt and we are fanatical about maintenance and upkeep. Proud to have one of the prettiest boats in the fleet. Every year the boat is cleaned, painted, rebuilt and tweaked to make sure all runs smooth in the new surfing season. The surf boat has lots of shaded new re-planked teak deck area to relax in between surf sessions and a full teak interior with widened bottom bunk beds.
