Star Koat 2

Luxurious charter cruising the Banyak Islands

Star Koat 2 is a large and luxurious charter running trips to the Banyaks Islands. This well-designed charter is one of the larger boats running in the area, giving you tons of space to relax whilst surfing perfect waves.

Designed with comfort in mind, all the cabins have been set up to have separate single beds! No hitting your head on bunk beds here! The common areas are equally well thought out, with a huge inside dinging/chill area with a 42-inch flat-screen TV. This charter really offers much more space than a lot of similarly priced charters on the market, making it perfect for exploring the Islands in comfort!

The Boat

Star Koat 2 is a large and well-designed charter, offering loads of space for up to 12 guests. The charter has been tastefully decorated and uses the space available really well. The large indoor dining area is large enough for all guests to eat inside and is a great space to relax and watch a film after a long day of surfing!

The boat has multiple chillout spots on the upper decks, giving you loads of space to watch waves and sunsets! There is ample space for storing all boards. The charter comes with a quick little tender for reaching breaks fast!

The Surf

Star Koat 2 mainly runs trips in the remote Banyak Islands. These are found further North of the Mentawais and are rapidly becoming the go-to destination for surfers looking to escape the crowds of the Mentawais.

The Banyak Islands are renowned for having some of the most perfect surf in Indonesia and the Star Koat 2 is one of the premier charters running in the area. Generally, the waves in the Banyaks are a bit smaller than the Mentawais, making it a great area when the swell is larger. With the expert surf guiding from Star Koat 2, you will always be in the spot to score the best waves!

Why We Love Star Koat 2

Surf epic empty waves! The Banyaks are much quieter than the Mentawais and the waves on offer are incredible.

The quality of accommodation is of a really high standard. Couples and Families will love the privacy of the cabins.

The charter company running the boat has tons of experience in the area and make sure the trips always run smoothly! A very professional outfit.

Accommodation

The Star Koat 2 can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 cabins. Each cabin has 2 separate single beds (no bunk beds here!) and has plenty of space for all your luggage. Each room has electricity and enough outlets for all of your devices!

All meals are served in the large dining area, equipped with a large TV to watch the day’s waves back at dinner. End the day with a beer on the top deck overlooking a stunning Banyak sunset!

Food

The crew behind Star Koat 2 knows that the food onboard is just as important as the waves you’re surfing. They make sure that you’re well-fed at all times with delicious and healthy food, that is freshly prepared.

You’ll be served a large breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a variety of western and Indonesian dishes on offer. The kitchen will also have snacks available throughout the day so you’ve always got fuel in you for the next session!

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James was very helpful and always there to answer all the questions. I will definitely book again with him!

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

A wave travel were great! They helped me organize my trip to Sumatra. I would definitely book with them again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
