We are the operators of Jiwa the classic Phinisi that has been making quite an impression in the Sumatran islands over the past three years. Jiwa is a 23m traditional wooden Phinisi, the kind of which would have been used years ago by merchants who traded throughout the archipelago. Her twin masts, clean lines and rustic charm provide for a unique way of experiencing the Indonesian islands: she tends to blend into the environment rather than impose on it.
The 2013 season is well underway with plenty of wave rich trips to the Banyak, Telo and Mentawai islands, we’ve also scored some great days around North Nias & the Hinakos . Its safe to say that all the guests have been stoked with many days surfing alone in great conditions. Please read the testimonials page to hear what previous guests are saying – the Jiwa report card is looking good.
With the 2013 season almost full we are now opening bookings for 2014. We are planning to tweak things further to ensure we are bringing you not only great value for money but also the best service available. Contact us now to book a trip for next year and take advantage of our GET IN EARLY discount.
One or two trips still remain in 2013 so contact us asap quickly so you don’t miss out.BOOK A TRIP Or LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TRIP »
