The Asian Princess is skippered and crewed by local Mentawai seamen. Their intimate knowledge of the local waters are the Asian Princesses’ greatest asset. Their combined lifetime experience of weather and wave conditions will ensure you are surfing the best empty lineups.

Built in 2000 the "Asian Princess" is a 20m (70 ft) wooden hulled beauty and was purpose built for long haul surf exploration along the Indonesian coastline.

Her traditional lines are drawn from over 1000 years of Indonesian maritime knowledge. She is locally designed for local conditions, is comfortable in heavy seas and provides maximum safety for all onboard.

Her twin 190hp Mitsubishi diesel engines provide a cruising speed of 9 knots. This combined with her 7000L fuel capacity allows you the freedom and luxury of extended periods at sea without the time delays of re-supply. This means you get un-interrupted maximum surf time on all of your trips.

The floor plan layout allows for a variety of separate areas on-board that cater for dinning, sleeping, chill or surf watching. Three separate air conditioned sleeping cabins- 1 x 8 bunk room, 2 x 2 private cabins provide spacious accommodation for a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 12 guests and her 5 crew.

The Asian Princess is supported by a 15ft aluminium tender fitted with a brand new Yamaha outboard 40hp engine that will shuttle you directly to your surf spot. Our boat to barrel service will save you valuable time and energy on those notoriously long Indo paddles.

The Surf Guide
Arguably the most important job on the boat to ensure you get the best empty waves ahead of the other boats.We use local surfers to guide you to some of the areas less well known waves that western guides just don’t know about. Their intimate knowledge of swell and weather patterns are gained from a lifetime of living on the Mentawai Islands where these decisions are a matter of life and death for the local people.

Think heavy steel doors, secret unlockingcombinations and burly guards with smack-down attitude. Usually larger than most spots in thearea. Watch out for clean-up sets. Rifles: One of the best waves in the Mentawais. A very long righthander that wraps around theother side of the same island as No Kanduis. Rarely makeable from start to finish, but even justfrom section to section you can get rides up to 100 yards or longer. Nice and hollow once it’s afew feet overhead, but usually more sectiony at smaller sizes.4 Bobs: A right, fun, short and mellow wave for all surfers. Pretty mellow drop with theopportunity for one whack at the lip and then it mushes out into deep water. It can get a bitshallow at low tide so you need to watch yourself but all in all, its one of the most rippablealternatives in the Mentawais.
  • 5. A Frame: A Frame is one of the most consistent lefts in the Mentawai Islands. The peaks at thetop can be a bit shifty and require a fair amount of paddling around to find the right area whilethe inside section is more dependable and offers up a better wall to work with.Beng Beng: A very consistent world class wave, an extremely rippable left. This spot is loads offun and probably one of the easiest waves to surf in the Mentawais. Its the deepest and safestwave in the area and also pick up a bit more swell than other locales. 5 more breaks in the area,including E-Bay and Pitstops. Nestled inside a small bay with one of the most scenic viewsimaginable all around you.Burgerworld: This is a mushy pointbreak righthander. Can offer barrels at times, but usuallylong rippable walls with many cutback sections.E-Bay: This is a hollow left that barrels off the take-off with a short wall down the line. A greatoption when a lot of swell is hitting. A holow, fast, powerful left. A world class wave forexperienced surfers. Watch out for the two rocks on the inside. Great barrels, and turns into asurfing paradise at 6 feet offshore. There is a heavy warble that hits as you are taking off. Makethe drop and dont get thrown by that first warble and chances are youll get a mean aqua bluebarrel. The scenery alone will blow you away. Besides its aesthetic beauty, double overhead E-bay is a beast and forces to be reckon with.Hideaways: A very hollow left that can be very shallow at low tides. The waves comes out ofdeep water, then unloads on a shallow section of reef before barreling towards the channel.Nipussi or Pussies: A shorter right that breaks down the point from Bank Vaults. Definitely funand rippable. Usually has fairly deep water from the takeoff to the inside. Ends in a riptide thatsucks all the water back out to sea. A good option when there’s not much swell, and usually themost consistent spot in the area.No Kanduis: A long barreling left that wraps around a small island. Usually very sectiony, butcan line up on the largest of swells. Many barrels on offer, but usually only makeable for one ortwo sections before closing out.Pitstops: This is the right off the peak at E-Bay. A playful right that can offer some cover-upsoff the take-off, but mostly a high performance wave with air sections at the end. Ends in a sandychannel.Scarecrows: Another small swell left that holds size and another of fave of the Aloita crew.Scarecrows or Frankos or Diablos as its sometimes referred to (!) has the ability to spread out acrowd with its several different take off spots. It is not a picture perfect indo reef break but shiftsaround depending on swell direction, size and currentsJaraiks: It is nothing more than a bend in the reef and hard to spot until you pull up right in frontof it. Surfable on all tides and East - South East winds, Jaraiks actually stops working themoment there is any swell!
  • 6. Telescopes: Telescopes left needs a decent sized West swell to start doing its thing. Though notas consistent as the other breaks in the area, a session at firing Teles will remain imprinted onyour mind long after youve left the MentawaisIceland: Icelands as with most of the other waves in the zone is a left and is possibly the mostjekyll and hyde like wave in the Mentawais. When everywhere in the chain is flat you can stillpull up to Icelands and get a headhigh wave with a lazy but whack-able wall. With a big westswell when everyone is getting excited about Telescopes the Ice turns into a monster with barrelsbig enough to drive the speedboat through.Hts: A short, perfect barrel complete with the renowned surgeons tableLances left: Long left-hander with two barrels sections. loves any size swellMacaronis: Super mechanical left that barrels from takeoff then provides a long, extremelyworkable wall. One of the best performance waves in the world.Rags Right: A shorter, hollow right on the southern end of Rags Island. Similar to HT’s only alittle shorter, but just as good. It can be fickle, but it’s one of the best rights in the islands.Rags Left: A great lefthander that can hold the biggest swells. It is very hollow and can oftendish out some of the heaviest hold-downs in the island chain. Usually a bit more water movingaround so a larger board can be useful.Thunders: a consistent hollow left and a great option when everywhere else is small.The Hole: Another very hollow left off a small island in the southern end of the Mentawais.Starts barreling off the takeoff, but never really stops until a closeout section at the end of thereef. Definitely not a place to straighten out at.Lighthouse: A long righthander breaking off a postcard picture island located at the base of theMentawai chain.
