Testimonials: Guided Surf Breaks in Indonesia

“I had wanted to surf Sumatra for a while but could never deal with all the hassles of arranging a trip myself. That’s when I discovered S.S.S. They dealt with everything from bookings, flights, transfers, accommodation & overland travel. Nothing was to much trouble & I had such good waves I’ll definitely be going back with S.S.S again in the future.” Read more testimonials

South Sumatra: Going Deeper (USD $1,500 per person)

All 13 waves here are reachable within 40 minutes by car, motor bike or our inshore boat. Waves range from beginner beach breaks to heavy heaving slabs producing heavy hollow rides.

With waterfalls to explore, elephants to meet and great snorkelling and fishing at nearby reefs.
