Wave of the Day wants to make surf travel easy, so we’ve partnered with Barracuda Surf Charters to offer this all inclusive package; Which includes 10 nights on the boat, all your meals, return flights from Australia, transfers to the boat and back, and a night in Medan to unwind and rest the shoulders after an epic 10 days of surfing!

The Barracuda is an Indonesian Vessel that was built by two local master craftsman who have built over 40 boats throughout the Mentawis and Sibolga in Sumatra Indonesia.  It has a classic Indonesian outline, is made of the finest local hardwood, and is equipped with air conditioning, comfortable cushioned seating, decks and lounge areas, t.v. for movies, navigational gear, safety equipment, full kitchen, bathroom, freshwater shower, surfboard racks, speedboat, and more!

We admit, there are some fancier boats out there, but the Barracuda keeps things simple. This vessel has everything you need, plus an unrivalled knowledge of the region. In other words, the Barracuda crew know how to make sure you’re in the right spot at the right time!

REGION

Parked in the North Indian Ocean, long range ground swells travel miles and unload in a tropical paradise full of amazing people, waves for all levels, palms and coconuts aplenty.

Indo has 2 seasons, wet and dry. Dry season has the most consistent winds and larger swells but don’t be fooled, if you know where to look there are amazing waves year round.

Sure wet season can be wet, but so can getting pitted in an uncrowded reef break with your mates. Off season can deliver amazing waves and we are as passionate about this time of year as any.

If you are an absolute charger, then large dry season swells and heaving 8-10 footers will be your dream. However, if you love hanging with your mates, sinking a few beers, and perfect shoulder to overhead points and reefs then do not count out the shoulder season.

WAVES

Here’s a guide to the waves which you might get to surf during your trip. Our operators have years of experience and will do their best to ensure that you’re in the right place at the right time. If you’re lucky they might even let you in on some of their secret spots too!
