Looking for a Sumatran surf adventure in one of the most remote archipelagos in Indonesia? We'll take you to the best breaks in the uncrowded Banyak islands, a little slice of paradise off the western coast of Sumatra. Our local team has unparalleled knowledge of the islands and surrounding waters and take great pleasure in showing off its world-class waves, reefs and deserted island beaches. The region is still entirely undeveloped. If you have a sense of adventure and a penchant for going deep, we’d love to welcome you. Indonesia has been a surfer’s mecca for decades, and the crowds prove it. Paddling in at world-class breaks like G-land or the Ments can be a hustle at the best of times.
But Indo is vast, and if you have a bit of time, you can still find perfect waves to yourself. Our archipelago is made up of 99 islands. Only seven of these are inhabited and some are tiny enough to hold just a couple of swaying palm trees. To the south you’ll find Nias, with its famous Sorake beach break, and further south still the Mentawais. To the north lies the island of Simeulue. When the waves are cranking you’ll be surfing your pick of six world-class breaks, not to mention finding more off the map when the conditions are right. The snorkelling is epic with clear water and a healthy diversity of fish, turtles and other marine life. Paddle board off the line-up at sunset, or if fishing is your thing, go after the the plethora of species found in the area. At night there are no bars or restaurants. It's Bintangs and going over the day's spoils.
