RE: Anyone surf Banyak and Simeulue Islands,Sumatra?

Don't forget about South Sumatra when thinking surf destinations, great waves and it is way cheaper. Check out
and send an email if you want any more info. Longest left in front of the Hotel and other waves in the area... it is a beautiful part of the world with friendly locals; well worth a look!

Surfing there

I read what you said and you were lucky to go and stay there years ago. I have a question, I have never been there and thinking of going in October? I don't want to spend a fortune in a all inclusive but want all the goods too, boat rides to breaks, food and lodging. Can I rent boat rides to places but I may be solo and how do I find a people with a boat and others to split cost? How to find lodging where great surf?
If you can help me, greatly appreciate it. Is there anything else? Thank you
