Ombak Kabau Surf Charter Boat

Boat Name Meaning
The name Minangkabau comes from the words Minang which means to win and Kabau which means buffalo. In a legend circulating, the history of the name Minangkabau originated from an expedition carried out by the Majapahit kingdom in the 16th century. To prevent casualties, the local community proposed to pit their buffalo against the Javanese buffalo belonging to the Majapahit troops. At that time, the Majapahit troops were said to have brought a large and aggressive buffalo. While the local community only issued a hungry buffalo
calf. However, they put a knife on each horn of the calf.
As a result, the calf with a knife in its horn was able to defeat the large buffalo belonging to the Majapahit troops. The name Minangkabau then became famous due to the victory event
Therefore we took the word “buffalo” because the buffalo is a symbol of the
victory of West Sumatra. and Mentawai is one of the districts in West Sumatra which has some of the best waves in the world.
