North Sumatra

North Sumatra has very good surf near Banda Aceh airport. The 2004 Tsunami  destroyed most coastal villages in Aceh, with over 130,000 deaths and millions homeless. However the surf towns of Lhoknya and Meulaboh are now both re-open for business, and the local surfers will really appreciate you coming.

Our #1 Recommendation for North Sumatra

It's definitely worth the $5 a day for TRAVEL INSURANCE to avoid having to pay $50,000 for an Emergency Flight if you get badly injured on the sharp coral reefs or crazy roads.
