Kai Dua also boasts a covered (and uncovered) "huge" outside deck as well as an additional deck towards the front of the charter boat. Inside is fully a/c to keep its guests cool.

The Crew

surf crew

The captain of the Kaimana 2 is extremely experienced in the Mentawai and neighbouring islands.
 As with the cooks, the crew are all Indonesian and have been working on board charter boats for many years. 

Your Western surf guide for the trip will typically be one of 2 surf guides;

Stanley Badgeris – very experienced in the Mentawai region, Stan is a South African guide with a wicked sense of humour.
Daniel Benedet – Another experienced guide hailing from Brazil. Daniel works full time surf guiding in Indonesia and has a real reputation for being a charger. 

 

Trip Information

What to expect

When booking a trip aboard the Kaimana 2, 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.
