Classic surf, pristine islands, and magical sunsets all combine to make the trip of a lifetime.


Our intention is to make your charter experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. On arrival at the airport you will be welcomed by Justin West & "Jiwa" staff and driven to the port where you’ll meet your guide and crew for the trip.


Once aboard Jiwa the crew will run through a quick induction to the vessel, look at the charts, consider the swell and weather forecast and discuss the best wave options. We aim to arrive at the surf at first light the following morning.


The following days will be spent surfing our way around the islands. Part of the beauty of these areas is the density of world class breaks, meaning there are a variety of options available on any given day.  The trip will provide plenty of time to experience all that the islands have to offer.


After departing Jiwa you’ll be greeted by our ground crew and transferred to the airport for your return journey home.
