LOCATION

About this Surf Charter

Overview

The Mentawai Islands offer some of the best and most consistent waves in the world. Huey has been operating in these waters since 1999 providing surfers with a variety of waves to suit all levels of ability.

HUEY is an 82-ft ex-customs patrol vessel customised for surf charters. Built and launched by the Japanese Government in 1978, HUEY is one of the faster boats serving the Mentawai Islands. Finishing in March 2009, Huey underwent a four month refit which involved rebuilding the main engines, plus new propellers and shafts to ensure reliability and safety for their guests. She is powered by two V8 Nissan 400hp diesels so getting there in all weather conditions is never a problem.

Captain & Crew

Steve (nicknamed Sooly), the owner of Huey has over 15 years experience traveling through Indonesia and its waters. He’s a Mentawai veteran and runs one of the most well respected charter operations with a massive repeat client base.

Amril, Huey’s Indonesian captain is a born and bred Padang local and also has 20 years experience at sea. He knows these waters like no other and has been working on western charter boats for 7 years.

Khairul the Chef and all round good guy will provide the food. His cooking is second to none. After finishing his trade certificate in Bukitingi, he started work on Huey in 2000 and has been with the boat ever since.

Amon and Hendra the two deckhands and dinghy drivers, also have lots of experience on the ocean.
