Classic Charter Operating in the Mentawai and Banyak Islands!

Jump aboard Seriti! This solid charter was built in the US and is Indonesian-flagged. The 25m aluminum charter has been fully customised for exploring the outer islands of the Indonesian archipelago.

Sleeping up to 12 persons, Seriti operates trips in both the Mentawai and Banyak Islands. With a long history of running trips in Indonesia, this is a great charter for groups or solo travelers to join!

The Boat

The Seriti is a 25m long aluminum charter. This solid and dependable design has a very experienced crew, providing comfort and safety onboard all trips. The charter can comfortably sleep 12 persons across  2 doubles and 10 king single beds located in 2 large air-conditioned cabins.

The charter has a large dining room, loads of space to chill throughout, and an epic rear deck to watch sunsets from! The charter comes with 2 support boats, allowing you to split your crew between waves!

The charter is fitted with EPIRB, 7 fire extinguishers, lifeboat for 25 people, 5 bilge pumps, GPS, radar, and the latest generation sonar for your safety!

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!

The Bankyak’s are located further North of the Mentawais and hold a whole host of world-class waves waiting for you. Generally, a region with lower crowds, this is perfect for those wanting quieter surf.

Why We Love Seriti

The flexibility to offer both the Mentawai and Banyak Island routes!

The charter is well built and managed by a very experienced crew!

The cabins are really comfortable with full air conditioning for all indoor areas!

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). :)
