When is the best time to surf in Sumatra

Best time to go

Sumatra is a great surfing destination with plenty of lefts, rights, and beachies in tropical clear waters all year long. The most regular and major swells are found between March and November, when waves reach the height of 6-12 ft (2-4m). During the other months of the year, you can still expect great swells (around 3-6 ft) so surfing all year long is guaranteed.
