*****************

Unfortunately this boat hit the reef & sank at HT's, morning of November 25th, 2021.

The captain had the terrible idea of leaving the helm station to go check a stuck anchor. Just when he was down, the reef broke, releasing the anchor.
The boat then drifted and was dragged by the north wind into the surgeon's table. The rest is history! Everyone was safe and well, except Praya :-(

Trip Information

What to expect

When booking a boat trip aboard Praya, guests will have the chance to surf either the Mentawai Islands (the whole region) – or further north to the Telo Islands (as well as parts of the Northern Mentawai).

For the tube hungry, we'd recommend sticking to the Mentawai islands that boasts the widest selection of world class waves. For a few more user-friendly options, we'd suggest North Mentawai to Telos (No fuel surcharge).

If you’re booking a large group then you’ll usually get to choose which region. Smaller groups and single surfers should enquire as to which region the charter will be heading to.

A dream come true

Paulo Zulu
The surftrip aboard Praya is a dream come true! I was lucky enough to meet the dudes in charge of the operations and the surfguides... They are very good people, polite, competent at their jobs and they absolutely rip! The photographer is also excellent! So, in addition to the personal feedback the footage gives, you still have the encouragement of the guys to surf better and challenge yourself. I've been aboard twice and I can't wait to go back again!
