The surf guide, Pierre, knows the Banyak Islands like the back of his hand. His detailed knowledge will assist in finding the best waves possible for specific weather conditions.
All cabins are air conditioned as well as the common area. There are two bath rooms.
The food is varied from French to Indonesia influence as well as your typical burger and pizza, salad, fresh fruits, fresh fish, beef, fajitas and chicken.
The Banyak Islands are one of the most remote surf destinations in Indonesia. 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 bring 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.
You will mostly surf in baggies as the water temperature is 27 degrees centigrade on average. A rashvest is highly recommended for sun protection. It’s best to also bring booties as the reefs are alive!
