Scored a few weeks aboard the Naga Laut this April. What a great trip! The crew, the food, the mates, the beers and the laughs made the trip. The world-class waves and 8hrs a day in the water almost seemed a bonus. Cheers guys!
Really enjoyed the Naga Laut trip – all the crew looked after us & made sure we only had to focus on surfing. Didit the surf guide is very knowledgable and helped us make the best decisions about where to go each day for the swell, wind and to avoid other boats.
I have been surfing since i was 9 years old and the ultimate dream was always to go onto a boat trip. I finally managed to get the time to go to the Mentawai’s and be part of Naga Laut together with a bunch of friends.
From the moment we arrived at the airport in Padang we where welcomed by the Mentawai Blue team to take us to the boat. I did not expect to have such a big and professional crew on board when i booked in for this adventure. We where looked after at all times and could focus entirely on what we wanted. Surf all day in the best spots of the Mentawai Islands, eat the best variation of heathy meals that can’t even be beaten by the best restaurant and have our casual entertainment with beers, fishing, snorkelling etc.
There was always somebody to look after us, no matter what time it was. We would even get dropped off and picked up directly at the line up with the speedboat in order to save us the paddle. And whilst we were surfing were taken pictures of us to look through them after dinner. I work in the Surftravel industry myself and run camps all around Europe and I have to say that I was blown away by the great service we received from the very beginning of the trip till the very end. Even though it was late November and maybe not the best season according to some people, it was still the best surf trip i have ever done. I will definitely see you guys again on Mentawai Blue and the Naga Laut.
