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 at Treasure Island 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.


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!

  • Treasure Island
  • Clarets (Lolok Point)
  • Joysticks
  • Cobra’s
  • Turtles
  • Mini’s
  • Lizards Nest
  • Toy Town
  • Babi Island
  • Gorilla’s

Getting to the Banyak Islands is an adventure. One well worth embarking on to surf world class waves in a rural, untouched part of the world off the coast of North Sumatra.

Start by organising flights into Medan, North Sumatra (usually from either Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Singapore or Bali). Once there, most operators can organise transport from Medan, though sometimes it will be at an additional cost.
