Indonesia is the ultimate surfer’s paradise with its 17,000 thousand islands. The archipelago’s perfect waves can be found in Sumatera, Java, Bali, and Timor, facing the vast Indian Ocean. Some areas have been explored for decades and most are still pristine and untouched. Indonesia has been a surf frontier for nearly 70 years. Nias, Mentawai and Uluwatu were some of the secret spots that now have become main attractions for hardcore surfers from all over the world. Surfing year-round is another irresistible factor in exploring Indonesia on a board.

Surfing Indonesia is not only about the waves. It is the perfect mix of picturesque tropical islands, beaches, friendly locals, and exotic culture. Indonesia is the real deal. There is absolutely nothing like it.
