Tengirri Surf Charters are the ultimate surfing experience, imagine yourself catching perfect waves in a tropical paradise with just you and a few friends. The 14m (46ft) Tengirri is a live aboard, power catamaran designed and built in Australia in 2004 specifically for luxury surf charters. Tengirri caters for small groups from 4 to a maximum of 8 surfers, so on every trip you can enjoy perfect surf, minimal crowds, awesome food all within the tropical paradise surrounds that the Sumatra region is known for...!!
Tengirri likes to keep ahead of the pack and give their guests 100% commitment to put them on the best waves possible. As surfers we all know that due to the variability and unpredictable nature of surf and weather conditions it is IMPOSSIBLE for anywhere to be perfect all the time. However, the good news is that due to the large number and variety of waves in the islands off Sumatra, and the high-speed of Tengirri, your chances of above-average or perfect, uncrowded surf are higher here than anywhere else in the world!! While we cannot promise perfect surf for your entire trip, in our experience most 12 night charters score good to above-average waves for the majority of the time and it is very rare not to come away with at least 2 or 3 of the perfect, uncrowded and memorable sessions that we all dream about.
Enjoy extended periods of perfect Indo surf onboard this luxury, air-conditioned boat. Get amongst some great surfing, fishing, snorkelling and enjoy the chefs fabulous food. This experienced skipper and crew will get you to the best, most uncrowded waves available under the given swell and weather conditions at the time of your charter. Surf anywhere you want in the Mentawai's & Telos regions!! The crew on Tengirri are happy to go anywhere you want within the West Sumatran region. The options are endless of where to go and as their surfing guest, the choice is up to you and your mates on-board. Obviously you can't go to every single break within a 2 week trip but Tengirri know that conditions and crowd levels change quickly in this area and that is why they are very flexible in where their surf charters go. When you aren't surfing or fishing you will be relaxing in style and making the most of the boat's luxurious facilities. What more could you ask for in paradise....!!
The quality and consistency of the waves in the Mentawai's area is well known, even though there are a lot of charter boats operating. There are still PLENTY of waves to be had and it is DEFINITELY still possible to score perfect, uncrowded surf in the Mentawai's due to the number and variety of breaks. The best thing about the Mentawai's and the West Sumatran area is that the majority of waves are surfable on all tides meaning it is possible to surf ALL DAY!!! The other good thing about this area is that there are reefs facing every direction of the compass, meaning there is always a perfect wave breaking somewhere. The Tengirri crew still have some semi-secret breaks in their kit of surprises and try to get you surfing alone whenever possible.
Catamarans are well known for their speed, stability at sea and spacious layout, giving you maximum space to relax whilst at anchor and the speed to get you there. Tengirri is certainly no exception to this and Tengirri is one of the strongest, safest, and fastest vessels operating in Indonesia. Tengirri is powered by twin 430HP Cummins engines and cruises comfortably at 15-17 knots and is capable of doing up to 22 knots, is built of aluminium alloy and has plenty of spacious living areas. To maximise your holiday and surf time the moment you reach the port in Padang they arrange to have you surfing early the next morning. Tengirri mostly aims to travel at night at a comfortable speed of 10 knots to prepare you for the following days surfing. If the conditions change during the day they simply up anchor and travel faster than most other boats to a better location. The charter experience Tengirri provides includes the expert knowledge of an experienced Australian skipper and also an experienced Australian surf guide and using their knowledge they can virtually find you waves every day.

A punchy, dredging righthander located a few hundred yards from Lances Left. With a shifting peak it can be a fun. The outside bombora, about 100m from the break itself will indicate when a set is approaching.This place can hold big swells and is worth checking out.
