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. Off season can deliver amazing waves and we are as passionate about this time of year as any.
Simuelue is an island that has got a lot to offer for it’s visitors. You will find beautiful deserted beaches, caves, forests, wild life, culture in the small towns all over the island, lakes, waterfalls and of course perfect, uncrowded surf breaks! The Simeulue region consists of many islands, Pulau Simeulue being the ‘biggest’. Most of the smaller islands are reachable by boat and well worth a visit.
Simeulue is ‘back to nature’ surfing at its best! The island is still very unknown, so it’s not overloaded with crowds. There are also a heap of secret spots! 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!
