Great Value for Money Mentawai Charter with Excellent Guiding

With more than 20 years of experience, constant yearly upgrades to the surf boat, and countless satisfied guests, Naga Laut is one of the best Mentawai surf charters!

Delicious and abundant food for hungry surfers, comfortable beds to rest and excellent surf guiding make Naga Laut the perfect option for an unforgettable surf trip scoring perfection at a very fair price!

The Boat

Originally launched in 1999, The Naga Laut has been designed exclusively for upmarket surf charters in the Mentawai Islands and the boat has been continually upgraded to ensure a comfortable and unique experience to its surfer guests.

Naga Laut can hold up to 13 surfers but sails most comfortably with 8 to 10.

Naga Laut has two tenders, a 5.5m Stacer aluminum speedboat with a Yamaha 85 hp to get you quickly and comfortably to the line-up, and a smaller zodiac with a 15hp. Both are always on standby to quickly get you to the waves, do shore excursions or go fishing.

The Surf

The Mentawais are like no other island chain in the world. With such a high concentration of world-class waves and incredible consistency, the area has been drawing traveling surfers since the 1980’s when the first pioneers discovered this treasure trove of perfection.

From perfect peeling points, to heavy slabbing barrels, high-performance air waves and chilled longboard spots, the Mentawai Islands has something to offer everyone! The peak months of May – September offer regular larger surf, with the months either side offering consistent perfect with lower crowds!

It is a right of passage for every surfer to experience Mentawai perfect at least once and the Naga Laut is a great option to experience this in comfort and style!

Why We Love Naga Laut

A fantastic crew onboard and delicious food from the chef of Naga Laut!

The owner of the charter has years of experience in the Mentawais. This means the guiding really high quality and the trips run smoothly!

Be the first one in the water at dawn and the last one at sunset! There is no better way to surf your brain out in the world-class Mentawais!

James and the team at Awave do great work! Our trip was seamless the whole way through, which is really all you can ever ask for...plus the waves were great

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
