In the history of elite surfing, one of the most glamorous spots has always been the Mentawai Islands. However, there are many other islands in Indonesia that host world class breaks and are hardly ever recognized. In Northern Sumatra, Banyaks, Hinakos, and the Telos island, all have fewer charters and land base camps, which means less people in the water. Surf expert, Eugene Tollemache shows LOCAL STYLE around Northern Sumatra to pinpoint the best breaks on tap.
