The Banyak Islands are one of the remote surf destination in Indonesia. You still can surf by yourself nearly empty places. 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 end of November. With an average size of 1 to 2.5 meters, which is more 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 bring a quiver with 2-3 surfboards:
» 5.6 to 6.8 surfboard
You can surf in short, temperature water is 27 degrees centigrade on average. A top long sleeve remains highly recommended for sun protection. It’s best to also bring booties, the reefs are alive.
