Nusa Dewata

The Aussie captain and owner of the Nusa Dewata is Simon Dale, a former cray fisherman from Western Australia, who’s been surfing Indonesia since the 1970s and the Mentawai islands since 1996. The Nusa Dewata is all about scoring uncrowded surf where the larger charters simply can’t compete.

The Nusa Dewata, was built in 1992 and fully refitted in 2009. Powered by the wind, and a 120 HP main engine, she cruises along at 6-8 knots. If the wind blows, expect the sails to go up and experience some real sailing! One of the coolest Indonesianbuilt boats in the Mentawai fleet, she accommodates groups of up to six. Perfect for families, father/son, longboarders, bodyboarders and all-girl trips!
