Banyak Islands

The Banyak Islands are located in the Islands of North Sumatra about 50km from mainland Aceh Sumatra, and are also home to a couple of great waves such as Treasure island/Machine gun rights/Whistle bird and the Bay of plenty.


The area is home to some of the funnest waves on the planet. Best known for its right hand reef /point break called Treasure Island widely regarded as one of the easiest waves in the world to get multiple barrels.



The Telo’s are made up of two main Islands that are surrounded by about 99 smaller islands, situated between Nias and The Mentawai’s, the area is very remote, untouched and sparsely populated, geographically the islands are closer to the mentawai’s, however the people, culture, local language originated from Nias. An extremely beautiful area, think tropical paradise.


The surf there is ultra-consistent in the 3-5-foot range, with lefts and rights that work in all tides, and opposite wind directions virtually guaranteeing off-shores every day. Best of all, the variety of surf offers many options for all levels of surfers and equipment. In Telo Island there are over 20 different waves



Though not a great distance from the mainland, the Mentawai Islands and its people were kept isolated until the 19th century by strong winds, unpredictable currents and razor-sharp reefs. It’s thought that the archipelago separated from Sumatra some 500,000 years ago, resulting in unique flora and fauna that sees Mentawai ranked alongside Madagascar in terms of endemic primate population. The largest island, Siberut, is home to the majority of the Mentawai population and is the most studied and protected island in the archipelago. The western half of the island is protected as the Siberut National Park.


Pulau Sipora is home to Tua Pejat, the seat of regional government and a surfer drop-off point. The archipelago’s airport is located at Rokot. With only 10% original rainforest remaining, it’s also the most developed of the Mentawai Islands. Further south are the Pulau Pagai islands – Utara (North) and Selatan (South) – which rarely see independent travellers.


Waves vary in size from 2 to 12 foot with the average wave height being about 6 foot. The Mentawai Islands region can also get big swells with reports of up to 15 feet plus recorded. They can range anywhere from fun sized walls to awesome stand-up barrels. If can hold you’re own on a wave, whether you’re natural or goofy, this place has the wave for you. Even today you still have the opportunity to surf uncrowded waves as this area keeps producing quality line ups which are scattered amongst a vast array of reefs, point breaks and secluded bays.
