"Banyak" means "many" or "plenty" in Indonesian, and when you're surfing the Banyak Islands off Sumatra, that's what you get, plenty of swell and plenty of world-class breaks without the Mentawai crowds. The best way to sample them? As a guest on The Dream, a purpose-built surf charter vessel specializing in the Banyak Islands.
Nobody ever gets tired of surfing Nias, but maybe you’re getting itchy eyes, wondering what’s over the horizon. The waves of the Hinakos and the Telos and the fabled waves of Treasure Island that’s what. But how to get there? Easy. Book a trip on the Ono Niha, a comfortable 62-foot surf charter vessel built and owned by Nias local Timotious “Timmy” Wau. Designed by a local surfer for local waters and for the comfort of visiting surfers, you can go exploring in style and comfort. Or let Timmy guide you where to go to the day’s best waves, from deep water rights you’ve seen in the media to barreling lefts and others in between, suited for all skill levels

Planning a surf trip to the Mentawais but bewildered by the choice of boats and lodges? A couple things you're sure about, though: you want the best uncrowded waves and you don't want any hassles getting to them. That's where the Jiwa surf charter boat comes in. No stress, maximum fun. From the Mentawais through the Banyaks and Telos to Simeulue Island, the Jiwa boys know the breaks like the backs of their hands all the way down to the bottom of their feet.
Want to surf Mentawai perfection but without the Mentawai zoo? Then check out the Banyak Islands, several hundred kilometers to the north. The same variety of breaks, the same Southern Indian Ocean exposure, the same world-class quality, the same warm blue water barrels…and far, far away from the maddening crowd. Dozens of surf charter boats ply the Mentawais and keep the lineups more than full, but only four boats are based full-time in the Banyaks, including our WSA partner vessel the Seriti.
