Surf Coaching Boat in the Banyak Islands

Surf Coaching Boat in the Banyak Islands

  • July 26 - 2, 2020

Banyak Islands, Indonesia

Perfect, World-Class Right and Left Handers, In the Bay of Plenty (Banyak Islands)
Surf Coaching with Rodrigo Machado

Picture-perfect Indo waves, lost in the Sumatran sea bordered by its jungle. Spend 7-Nights aboard a boat where everyone just wants to see you get the wave of your life.

Surf World Class lefts and rights, from fast and tubular to long cruising walls.

During one of most consistent month of swell in Indo. Although the Banyaks are more sheltered than the Mentawais, we expect 6-foot + waves on a daily basis.

Daily Surf Coaching & Video Analysis by Rodrigo Machado.

This surfing program is designed for:



You surf consistently since already few years. You look out for the good swells and occasionally know how to find barrels and throw a spray after a snap. You want to deepen your surf techniques to bring more flow and power in your surfing. You are ready to push your surf to the next level.


Tube Riders

You are comfortable in solid conditions (6ft+), not scared of hollow waves and late take offs. You want to improve your surf techniques, ride barrels, and perform more radical surf maneuvers. You are ready to push your surfing to the next level.

At the north of Nias and south of Simeulue are nestled the Banyak islands. This archipelago of islands is less known than its neighbour, the Mentawai islands. However, the quality of its waves is arguably similar, so is the crowd as the Banyaks don’t attract much crowd as the Mentawais.

The Banyaks are known for handling well the solid SW swells during the Indo season (May-October). Regular footers will get addict to the wave of Treasure Point, that was also featured in ‘The Tempest’ with Stephanie Gilmore. This wave will be our go to when condition aligns. Though, there are a dozen of other waves, lefts and rights. There is no predominant wind patters unlike Bali, conditions change quick throughout the day and we can guarantee there’ll always be a spot with off-shore winds.

Board selection is up to you but we recommend bringing a quiver of 2-3 boards, from 5,6 to 6,8.
