Daily flights operate from Medan via Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. Daily morning flights from Medan to Sibolga. Given this schedule, all of the Dream Charters begin on Monday and end on Friday.

Indonesia, with regular and consistent swells, is the most popular surf destination in the world. The Banyak Islands are indeed a wave paradise. Its location facing the Indian Ocean gives it powerful swells generated by low pressure systems throughout the Indian Ocean.

Offering a variety of waves that have nothing to envy its famous neighbour the Mentawai archipelago, the Banyak Islands offer additional world class waves, without a crowd. Only a small handful of boats now operate in this heavenly and unspoiled area.

Surf Banyaks Dream

The Banyak Islands are one of the most remote surf destinations in Indonesia. You can still surf by yourself on empty waves as there are only three charter boats based full time in the area.

The archipelago is surfable throughout the year but the best conditions are from March to October. With an average size of 1 to 2.5 metres, the waves are most consistent from April to October.

You will have to think about a spare leash, fins, wax and a repair kit. For the board selection, it’s up to you, but we recommend you take a quiver with 2-3 surfboards:

»    5.6 to 6.8 surfboard

You can surf in shorts as the water temperature is on average, 27 degrees centigrade. A long sleeve rashie is highly recommended for sun protection. It’s best to also bring booties.
