The Banyak islands archipelago lies a hundred miles to the west coast of Sumatra, north of Indonesia. It’s reached by boat some 12h of sailing from the home town of Sibolga, homeport of the DREAM.

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, Banyak islands offer additional spot of world class but less crowded. Only a handful of boats now operate in this heavenly and unspoiled area.
