The Mighty Ismari: Ocean Goddess of the Mentawai Islands. Travelling from deep south in the Mentawai Islands & all the way North up to the Banyaks, The Ismari is the perfect small group surf charter boat. Sleeping 6-8 guests in 5 seperate cabins with two bathrooms, this is a floating hotel with the added bonus of waking up to perfect uncrowded waves at a new location every morning.

With endless white sandy beaches & turquoise waters surrounding some for the best surf in the world, down time in paradise doesn’t take much getting used to. Secluded, isolated and just plain remote, these islands are picture perfect and are exactly what you have been dreaming of.​

The Ismari is big enough to sleep 8 guests, yet also plenty of room to relax with three outdoor areas to chill in between surfs  on one of the day beds or sun lounges, you can easily find some peace and quiet if needed.

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!

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.
