When Chartering the Surf Boat, Know These 6 Things First!


Chartering a boat and heading to remote islands while spending more times on the deck with your refreshing drinks and delicious foods may are the dream of many. Who wouldn’t wish about that? And how about getting the surfboard and jump onto the water with the surf team members that are knowing well when the best wind is kicking in or know the best surf spots base on your surfing ability?

Things to consider before chartering the surf boat

But before you are doing all of that, you need to know some important things when you are picking the best surf boat charter to choose and that’s why I am here to help.

1. The surf boat design

There are many best surf charters providers to choose and so do the boats. The thing is, some are in a small size of boat that can even make you move comfortable inside the boat while doing anything you want while the others have even build a boat that are enough for more people than you think.

You have to pay attention to how the boat is designed in term of size as well as the concept. If you are thinking that you will need the authentic surf boat experience, then surely you won’t choose the modern and contemporary boat design but the traditional one.

Make sure that the surf boat is also can really helpful in getting or storing all of your surf equipment or when it will need to be repaired in case something came up.

2. Passengers or the crowd: How many other surfers will joining in on the boat?

Big surf boat can also means that it will accommodate more people on board. The thing is, your surf adventure may are bothered by the others. I am afraid that the more people are on the boat, the less tranquility you will experience.

Sea adventure should be as peaceful as you have been imagined in your mind, am I right in this?

But in the other hands, the less people or surfers are joining in, mostly means that the more you will pay for the surf boat charter. I have no idea in which option you will end up, but hopefully what you have been decided is the the best.

I am sorry to tell you this, but honestly, it is the sad fact you have to realise, isn’t it?

3. The surf crew, guides or instructors on the boat

When you are chartering the surf boat, don’t you think that the boat should have also been provided with those people who are also have been experienced and professional in surfing.

You have to considering this thing to anticipate in case there will be the evacuation plan needed for someone who got injured while surfing or some other things to happen out of everybody’s control.

If there won’t be any single crew that is also the surfers, then the surf boat charter is only a name and no more special than that.

Thinking about this, don’t you think that you will also need someone to ask and share the surfing experiences and knowledge rather than the crew that will only know how to apply the wax on your surfboard?

4. Where the surf boat charter will take you? Know the spots and the destinations!

Before you are planning and picking the surf charters to book, it is also important to know where the boat will take you especially the surf spots you are going to visit and ride the waves.

It is to ensure that you will also look for more references about the surf spots so you will know what you will bring right after starting your adventure from home and to make you ready of what you are possible to experience at the spot.

Some surf spots have more big waves and breaks than you think and that will really need more energy and your body should really fit while the others are pretty much peaceful with only some small waves in every certain minutes.

Knowing the destinations is also important that can eve help you to decide which items to bring. For example, if the surf boat you are chartering is going to visit some remote islands, you may will consider what to do and bring to make your time at the island more unforgettable and safer.

5. The surf boat charter itinerary

What i have just explained on the fourth point on above is actually part of the surf boat’s itinerary. And knowing that the surf spots and the destinations are so important, then I decided to included them in separated point.

For the itinerary itself, some of the professional and favourable surf boat charters you will find on internet have their own itineraries. It is important to know that you are not only going to surf all day long in various spots and at the end of the day, you will be tired and go to bed. Nope. You are not really want to pay for that.

Moreover, you may are spending as much time you have in the seawater as humanly possible, but I think it is almost possible to spend your whole day say it for 8 hours in the water without being back to the boat. You will not only make your skin wrinkled, but you will die freezing because of hypothermia.

While you are getting back to the boat, for certain hour, there must be something to do to make your surf trip even more better and unforgettable than just resting, right? That’s where the surf boat operator will need to know things that can lives up your surfing days.

6. Know how long you will be on the surf boat

We have to realise that surf boat charter somehow has been a travel package as well. In general, there are 3 common concepts to run for this kind of business. Those are, scheduled or regular package, charter the boat and you can then decide what you are going to do about it, and the last one is the “open boat” concept that is likely similar to the floating accommodation.

For the last option, the boat will mostly peacefully anchoring near the surf spots and you can wish more than that.

But, if you are referring the surf boat as the second concept, then you are free to go anywhere. Far different with the fixed scheduled concept that all the things, spots and destinations have been defined by the operator and you will only need to be no the boat while enjoy all the possible things you have been prepared by the boat crew.

I hope I don’t miss any other essential things you have to know when you are ready to pick and book the surf boat operator to spend the luxury holidays on the peaceful nights and days at the sea. Share this post to let the others know of what you have just read.
