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 late March to early November, when the Indian Ocean produces its most consistent groundswells.

As a rule, the surf is suited more for intermediate to experienced riders. They will certainly take more from the long trip to the region. And although the area boasts 100’s of dreamy set-ups, most unload onto sharp coral reef ready to dish out a suitable punishment given half a chance. This is primarily the reason we dont encourage learners or even progressing beginners to the area.

That said, with so many waves to choose from, intermediates can still ride the waves of their lives, without too much risk. As for the advanced surfer – one trip will result in many more to follow.

The Surf

Detailed information for all the surf breaks can be found in the Banyak Islands destination's section of the site:
