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 No-Kandui 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! Note that this charter can also visit both the Banyak’s and Telo’s (additional fuel surcharge applies). If you would like to arrange a trip to these regions, please contact us.
