Indonesia

Welcome to the surfing mecca of Indonesia! From North Sumatra to Bali and Timor, to lesser-known regions like Rote Island and Sumba, Indonesia boasts some of the world’s best waves. It’s truly a surfer’s paradise.

Perfectly positioned in the Indian Ocean to pick up the most consistent swell, Indonesia has an incredible variety of surf breaks and stunning destinations to attract surfers and their families. World Surfaris has you covered from North Sumatra to Timor, and represents the best surf destinations in Indonesia. Whether you’re looking for a rustic jungle surf camp, or a luxury surf charter, we have something for everyone.

With a range of surf trips from one end of Indonesia to the other, World Surfaris can help you find uncrowded waves and idyllic locations to surf, rest and play. Whether it’s on the deck of your surf charter, or on the balcony of your island bungalow, we’ll ensure your World Surfaris surfing holiday is one to remember. From the Mentawai Islands to North Sumatra, and the rugged beauty of Sumba, we’ll help you find an Indonesian surf trip that ticks all the boxes. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a beginner surfer, an experienced pro, or a non-surfer looking for an epic island adventure.

Indonesia is home to world-class waves like Macaronis, Lances Left, Kandui, G-Land, HTs and Periscopes. Surf guides are essential for any Indonesian surfari, and our Indonesian surf guides are some of the most experienced in the world. Their top priority is to ensure that you catch plenty of waves and have an unforgettable surfing experience. They’ll even share some of their favourite secret spots!

Indonesia

Indonesia has two distinct seasons, wet (off-peak) and dry (peak). The dry season (April to September) offers the best surf conditions, favourable winds from the S-SW, and long periods of light to no winds.

The wet season (October to March) has more rain but cooler temperatures than the dry season. Swell isn’t as consistent during the wet season, but some areas like the east coast of Bali and Sumatra still have good, consistent swells and light winds.

While many surfers rush to surf Indonesia in the dry season, surfers who visit in the wet season are often rewarded with fun, empty waves. World Surfaris offers surf trips all-year-long, throughout the wet and dry seasons.
