ALL ABOARD TRAVEL IS SOUTH AFRICA’S SPECIALIST SURF, FAMILY AND HONEYMOON TRAVEL COMPANY
All Aboard Travel offers clients tried and trusted destinations, whether it be a surf charter, family holiday, a honeymoon or a hardcore surf trip.
The “All Aboard Surf Travel Company” was formed by Gideon and Chantal Malherbe in 2004. They were fresh from the Mentawais, where Gideon skippered the fabled Indies Explorer from 1998 until 2004, doing 6 solid seasons and more than 70 Mentawai charters. Apart from these charters there was also plenty time to explore, including 8 trips down the south coast of Sumatra and Panaitan, 5 explorations of Simelue, the Banyaks and North Sumatra, an exploration of the South Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, and a circumnavigation of Sumba. We are the true Indo experts! We know all the boats, all the captains and all the spots. In 2007 Lorrin Jarvis joined All Aboard with her husband Craig Jarvis (Jarvi). Starting in 1997, Lorrin has vast experience in the travel industry and with her love for surfing, the ocean and beach, it made for a super strong team. Jarvi is a surf journalist and former editor of Zigzag Surf mag and was one of the first South Africans to surf the entire coast of Chile and lived as a feral in the village of Katiet (Lance’s Rights), before Lance even arrived. He assists with the marketing and keeping us current and fresh in the industry. Both have travelled around the world and have stayed at many of the resorts All Aboard offers as a couple or with the groms. First hand knowledge is what you want! In 2013 Chantal and Gideon decided to hang up their leashes and pursue the building and stay-at-home-Mom industries, leaving the company in the Jarvis’s capable hands.
