You wont have the opportunity for a better insight into the history of the Mentawaii islands than onboard the Raja Elang with Tony Eltherington. He has seen it all out there and has a story for every little inch of those turquoise blue waters. I sailed a few charters with him shooting surf photography and lifestyle shots for the guests and it was an experience, to say the least. He is not the kind of character to tuck you in at night and kiss you on the forehead, but he will get his guests the best waves that the Mentawaiis have to offer, no matter what the conditions. I won't share any of his wild stories with you here, I wouldn't want to spoil the surprises. Better save them so he can tell you himself.
