Mentawai & North Sumatra
Low Season Special
MENTAWAI ISLANDS, INDONESIA
Often deemed the smartest looking charter boat in the Mentawai Islands, the Indo Satu’s construction was inspired by the Indonesian ‘Phinisi’ sailing ship and features traditional craftsmanship and a sprite style rig for the main and a self furling headsail up front.
Indo Satu is comprised of a dorm setup with 8 bunks and a double VIP cabin. On both the fore-deck and top deck you have shaded hang out areas, perfect to watch the waves or sunset, and the saloon area is the an ideal wet weather refuge and place to kick back and relax.
Whether you’re looking for mellow walls or heavy slabs, the Indo Satu crew know how to put you in the right place at the right time, so round up the troops and organizing a trip today!

Parked in the North Indian Ocean, long range ground swells travel miles and unload in a tropical paradise full of amazing people, waves for all levels, palms and coconuts aplenty.
Indo has 2 seasons, wet and dry. Dry season has the most consistent winds and larger swells but don’t be fooled, if you know where to look there are amazing waves year round.
Sure wet season can be wet, but so can getting pitted in an uncrowded reef break with your mates. Off season can deliver amazing waves and we are as passionate about this time of year as any.
If you are an absolute charger then large dry season swells and heaving 8-10 footers at No-Kandui will be your dream. However, if you love hanging with your mates, sinking a few beers, and perfect shoulder to overhead points and reefs then do not count out the shoulder season.
Here’s a guide to the waves which you might get to surf during your trip. Our operators have years of experience and will do their best to ensure that you’re in the right place at the right time. If you’re lucky they might even let you in on some of their secret spots too!

We toured on the Indo Satu in July/Aug 17 and couldn’t fault the service. Nick the guide was awesome and the crew were a well-oiled machine. Nothing was a problem and Nick’s knowledge of the area and of the language and culture added another dimension. The boat was very comfortable and the best looking boat too. Highly recommended for a magical trip to the Mentawai’s
Went with Indo Satu in early july 2017. 11 days of perfect waves with 8 mates. The boat is better than imaginable. Crew, food, management, knowledge of waves, region etc. Also the captain pulled into the prime spot for pic’s at every wave. The tender boat silion ripped us into waves wherever we needed or fish, whatever our need. Young Jake T helped Tom guide us and he didn’t only put us in the right spots but also kept the rest of our group psychiced up. We did pretty well for crowds as the guide tried his best to watch other boats and talk with them where possible. A few times we surfed a grade waves by ourselves. Thanks Tom Jake and the Satu crew. We’ll be saving lunch money for the next trip
