Hey Dave, just got back and wanted to thank you for recommending the Nusa Dewata. We had the best time ever! We scored Maccas, HTs and Greenbush all FIRING, plus about 13 other awesome breaks! I will be recommending Mentawai SurfCats to anyone interested in going over there. Thanks again for setting up everything, it went so smooth!

I just wanted to thank you for a great trip. The boat was very comfortable and had great sleeping arrangements. The crew were very helpful. EVERYONE had a good time!!! Ovi was great also and we would love to have him on board again.

Ken Bradshaw - HI

Trip was awsome! Best waves ever! Thank you so much for arranging everything and setting me up last minute!

Kyle Salvato - Miami, FL

The trip was great. I had a fantastic time. What really made the whole thing special was the other nine guests. They were all originally from Oahu and they all got together for this surf trip. We got along very well which made for a fun time in the Mentawai's. The surf was very good on most days. It is awesome being on a boat and getting to surf as many times in a day as you would like to. The first and the last days were the best surf days. Our first morning was Bank Vaults, it was pretty big and back side for me. I choose to surf Nipussi instead and had some very fun overhead backside waves. Our last session was at HT's and the tide was going low and it was spitting. Some of the prettiest waves I've ever seen!! My best sessions were at Maccaronis and Lance's left. Yeah, I'm goofy-foot. Hey, I wanted to say thank you for setting me up with the boat and the other guests. It all worked out well and I'm really grateful to experience the whole Indonesia thing. It was a great way to bring in my 50th birthday!! Heck yea baby. Thanks again, & let's do it again!!

Bill - US

Mate, the trip was amazing. The boat, captain, crew, the food and Tezza was bang on the money with his calls and a fantastic bloke. We had plenty of waves to ourselves. Huge wraps all round. Amazing trip, a big thanks to all involved. Will recommend you guys for sure. Cheers for making it happen!

Chad Trotter - AUS

We scored everywhere, but had stand out days at Kandui. They were sayin' best day since last August! Bankvaults was firing too. Lots of skin on the reef at HTs and Lances. Maccas real good and fun at Scarecrows and Telescopes as well. NY crew was charging. Can't wait 'til next year. Oh yeah, eBay at solid six feet! Thanks again Dave!

Chris Arancio - NY
