Trip Information

What to expect

surf map

The “many” islands, lie off the west coast of Northern Sumatra, nestled between the island of Nias to the south and south east of Simeulue, to the North. These sparsely inhabited islands are home to world class waves including “Treasure Island” as well as a wave dense cluster of breaks, found in the “Bay of Plenty”. And in similar fashion to its neighbouring archipelagos, perfect waves break on its shores with extreme frequency. Located just above the equator, winds are generally light year round.  

The best time of year to surf “The Banyaks” is during the dry season, which can be anytime from April to October, when the Indian Ocean produces its most consistent groundswells. That said, "off season" trips (November-March) are becoming more popular with the promise of completely empty line-ups.
