Sumba Surf Charter to the Secrets of Eastern Indonesia

Surf Trip of a Lifetime

Royal Fortuna Cruise, SUMBA SURF CHARTER

The ROYAL FORTUNA is a traditional Phinisi schooner built in 2012 by the famous Konjo tribe in Sulawesi, Indonesia. She was completely renovated  in 2017 and is now the fastest, most comfortable and safest boat that is dedicated to find empty line-ups in the remote areas of Nusa Tenggara.

We’ve travelled aboard the RFC last September 2018, chasing waves around Sumbawa and had one of our best experience aboard a Surf Charter in Indonesia. Now, RFC cruises mostly around Sumba and NTT, which is even more exciting!

The Cabins

The RFC offers 5 spacious and cosy cabins for up to 11 guest and 2 shared bathrooms with European style toilets as well as a monsoon shower. We decided against offering AC because we would like to be as environmentally friendly as we can. All our cabins have windows, a door and oscillating fans: 2 double bed cabins on main level, 2 bunk bed cabins on main level, 1 double bed plus single bed cabin on first level.




Off the surfed track, discover some jewels of the Indian Ocean, some of the spots are only known by the captain and its crew. Choose between exploring the hidden right-handers of Sumbawa, empty line-ups of Sumba or cruise around the epic Rote until the last borders of Indonesia.

Indo Surf Crew

Indo Surf Crew was first born in the year 2018 as a surf photo & video content creative project while the first surf coaching trip organised by Uriel & Rodrigo happened in 2019 on an island off Sumatra. Since then, they have been running surf coaching retreats for all levels and mostly specialise in surf coaching for intermediate to advanced surfers. Surfing Consciously is our motto. To us it means, bringing awareness to our body, thoughts and interactions – in and out of the water. We take pride in working with eco surf resorts that are acting responsibly in preserving Indonesia’s nature, supporting and educating local communities. Indo Surf Crew was founded by Uriel Jean Armel, a French surfer and film-maker who has taken roots in Indonesia. You can read more about Uriel here, on an interview with Magicseaweed & here during an interview with the Surfing copywriter. As for Rodrigo, he was the first surf coach to join Uriel in his adventure and he’s the founder of the Power Surf techniques – a method that is now practiced internationally to train surf athletes from all over. Power Surf is a land based practice that combines ginastica natural, yoga, capoeira and martial arts, breaking town the fundamental surf techniques through a series of exercises. It also involves video analysis a skate practice for optimal result, which we do during our surf coaching trips.
