MENTAWAIS in September
September in the Mentawais is considered as the high season in Indonesia. This is a time of the year where swells come consistently. We expect our average surf day to be around 6-foot walls on the wave. We will be aiming for more advanced waves like Rifles, Bank Vaults, Hollow Trees but surf a variety of waves depending on the swell and wind forecasts.

The King Millenium I is a 20m long boat with a 6m beam that has an average cruising speed of 10 knots. It was designed and built in Indonesia by surfers for surfers to sail confortably and safely, with different deck and chill areas to spread the guests and breath in the amazing sunrises, sunsets and views of firing waves while you sip on a good sumatran coffee or a cold Bintang.
It has 3 double rooms and a 4 person room with air conditioning, ample single beds and individual cupboards. The top deck features a wide living room with dining table, comfy couches, air conditioning, TV, DVD and stereo. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bathroom is ample. There’s also a nice lounge deck area from which to watch the
waves. The boat also has a little auxiliary dinghy to ferry clients between the boat and the waves, to take pictures, etc.
