Following is an example of a days dining
Perhaps a light breakfast before an early surf such as fruit salad, cereal, toast (with jam, vegemite, honey etc.) or eggs and banana pancakes.
Maybe enjoy a “hot” breakfast (or “brunch”). This could be pancakes or omelettes and you eat as much as you want in order to have enough energy to hit the surf again.
Usually something that provides you with lots of energy to help you paddle into those grinding tubes. Typical lunches may include fresh ham salad sandwiches, noodles, tacos, jaffles etc.
The main meal of the day and may include pasta, BBQ chicken, double burgers, curry beef, lasagna, burritos and stir fried veggies accompanied by vegetables, rice and fresh salad all washed down with a few ice cold beers.

Besides yourself and your surfboards, we recommend that you at least try to bring the following items:
- 2 or 3 pairs of board shorts
- Some t-shirts
- Solarez – the type with rovings in it
- Spare leg ropes
- Rash vests
- Tropical surf wax
- Spare fins and Keys, spare plugs and screws if you have FCS system
- Mosquito repellent
- Basic first aid kit with Hyperfix dressings
This is entirely up to how much excess baggage you are willing to pay for! We have storage for them all on board but check with your airline first.
Most people bring 2-4 boards. Mid length boards and guns generally get used and occasionally the short boards get pulled out.
If you are going to bring an extra board we would suggest a replacement for the board you will use the most as it is not uncommon to break boards.
Remember to bring extra leg ropes and tropical surf wax. There is also a Sup board available on the Dewata.
All guests must have full comprehensive travel and medical insurance and should include at least a MedEvac option and compensation for lost charter days due to unforeseen circumstances or emergencies.

As of March 2004, nationals of United States, Australia, South Africa, Argentina, Denmark, Hungary, United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, and New Zealandmust pay $US25 for on entry visa on arrival in Indonesia.
Our number one goal is to avoid crowds whenever possible. The early season (January-March) and the late season (October to December) are usually less crowded.
Or ask the guide to take you to the “less famous, less well known” waves to increase your chance of surfing with just the Nusa Dewata crew. Five to six people with it all to your self. We don’t subscribe to the instant crowd factor.
Depending on where you’re coming from there are several different options you can use to get to Padang (for example you can fly to Padang via Kuala Lumpur or Jakarta).
