You can book an additional package in case you arrive on Sunday evening. The package costs 300 USD and it includes accommodation on Sunday night, taxi, fly Medan / Sibolga, and boards transit Medan - Sibolga and Sibolga - Medan. Usually, there are some groups that must arrive one day before for the surf transit. When there are a lot of boards, they transit board by road (10 to 12 hours), then they take the boards one day before and the same thing for the return. For a single surfer or two, they can travel directly to Sibolga with their board and arrive directly on Monday.
However, if you’re planning to go straight to Sibolga, the guide will escort you to your domestic flight to reach Ferdinand Lumban Tobing Airport (FLZ). Furthermore, your surfboards will be picked up at your hotel and be transported by the road from Medan to Sibolga.

Banyak Islands’ archipelago lies a hundred miles to the west coast of Sumatra, north of Indonesia. The islands can be reached by boat for approximately 12 hours of sailing from the hometown of Sibolga. Additionally, the Banyak Islands are indeed a wave paradise.

Moreover, Banyak Islands offer additional spots for world class surfing which are less crowded.
