About Sibon Baru
Sibon Baru is a 62-ft aluminium catamaran purpose built in 2011 for Indonesian surf charters with groups of 8 to 10 surfers. The owner/operator made sure that this boat has the speed and comfort to do long distance surf trips in style.
Sibon Baru features twin-bunk cabins, three bathrooms, spacious interior saloon and plenty of outside space on the aft cockpit and forward deck. Flared hulls and lots of headroom make it a spacious, comfortable and stable boat, and it’s fitted with the latest in navigation and safety equipment.
The chef cooks a scrumptious variety of Asian and Western dishes, guaranteed to satisfy the hungriest surfers.
Sibon Baru operates alternating 12 night charters between Padang in Central Sumatra to Sibolga in the north and vice versa. Holiday tour packages usually include flights via Singapore to Medan or via Jakarta to Padang and return. Guests arrive at Padang or Medan on a Wednesday and are met by a representative and assisted with transfer to the boat in Padang or connecting flight to Sibolga from Medan. Guests should be surfing the Mentawais the next morning. For longer distance charters through the Telos, Nias and Hinako areas the boat cruises overnight so even the extended trips get in 11 days of surfing.
At the end of the charter, Sibon Baru returns to Padang or Sibolga on Monday and guests are transferred to the airport. Onward connections to Singapore or elsewhere are usually on the afternoon of the same day.
Tour packages include all airport transfers and 11 days/12 nights on Sibon Baru, including all meals, non-alcoholic drinks, on-board fishing equipment and snorkeling gear.
