Hello Everyone, It's with a heavy heart I'm writing about our Captain and surf guide Paul Benny Benbows passing on the 4th of June.

Benny was diving on a reef a few miles south of Katiet and didn't come up after a deep dive. No one will ever know what happened down there but his passing has rocked us and the surfing community here in Padang and the Islands.

Our deepest condolences to his family and mates back in Adelaide.

Bennys infectious laugh and zest for life touched many people all over the world.

He will be deeply missed.

Vale Benny

Miss you Brother.

The Mentawai Islands offer some of the best and most consistent waves in the world. Huey has been operating in these waters since 1999 providing surfers with a variety of waves to suit all levels of ability.

Our regular Mentawai charters go for 10 days and 11 nights leaving Padang around 9 or 10 pm and arrive in the islands at dawn the following morning. During the tour we travel mostly at night so as not to waste valuable surf time. On the last day we surf till dark, prepare Huey for the run home and arrive back to Padang in the early hours of the morning.

Our customised charters can take you further afield to lesser known spots North or South of Padang. We regularly pick up and drop off our guests in Sibolga or Bengkulu providing more opportunities for less crowded surf and a different kind of surf adventure. Hit our inbox for details.

During the trip you will be looked after by our trained and highly skilled staff.
Steve, (aka Sooly) the owner of Huey will be your Captain host and surf guide. With over 20 years experience traveling through Indonesia and its waters he’ll be sure to get you the best waves on offer.

When Sooly isn't available you can be assured our relief Captains have many years experience in the Sumatran Island chain.

Amril, our Indonesian Captain is a born and bred Padang local and also has over 20 years experience at sea. He knows these waters like no other and has been working on Huey since 2002.

Khairul our Chef and all round good guy will provide the food. His cooking is second to none. After finishing his trade certificate in Bukkitingi he started work on Huey in 2000 and has been with the boat ever since.

Arry is our kitchen hand and maintenance man, he’s been with Huey since 2007.'
Amon is our youngest member of the team and also started in 2007. He has since completed 2 levels of schooling and will become a fully qualified Captain next year.

All our crew are certified with Seacom, Indonesias Governing body for ocean going vessels.
