Saraina Koat Mentawai literally means ‘Mentawai Wave Family’, in Mentawai language. SKM is a grass roots, family owned , and operated company, which has been exploring the Mentawai since 1.997, and surfing the beautiful, and remote West Sumatran Islands, in search of the best an, most uncrowded waves on earth. SKM prides it self in providing our guests with the most experienced, comfortable, safest, and affordable priced surf charters available. Year after year, SKM has delivered an unparalleled experience to our guests, continue to do so, and into the future. We strive for excellence, and have only learned more, and gotten better at what we do with each passing year.
SKM, more than any other surf tourism company, has helped the Native Mentawai People, and the local Mentawai Government, with programs like Wave of Compassion, helping to organize Timmy Turner’s Tsunami Diary trips, helping the Mentawai people after the September 2007 earthquakes, with emergency food, and camping gear for villages in 3 different regions of the islands, by sponsoring, and organizing local surf contests for Indonesian youths, donating to the Native Mentawai students association for their various community projects, and by employing more native Mentawai people than all other tourism operators in the region combined.
There are a few local boat options to choose from but none of them are even remotely close to the service and quality SKM offers to our guests. If you’re looking for the best surf charter trips available any where in the world-you have found it!
