Bandah Aceh wind

Postby Kookie » Thu Aug 02, 2018 1:49 am

After months of searching I finally found a spot in Bali with low crowds but the rides are short - 10secs at best.

Bandah Aceh is much easier for me to get to so I thought I'd have a look... but unlike the rest of Indo there are regular onshore winds when I get my holidays in the summer.
The Ments are too remote for me to visit regularly.

So, what's better? Spend more time searching for a sheltered spot in north Sumatra or spend more money and time to go to Bali for short rides?

I went there in July to kite surf. I had hoped that the wind would be less in the morning and I could get a surf in before the wind picked up but it pretty much blows 24/7.
Strongest in the afternoon but pretty much unsurfable all day.

once your about half way down Sumatra the wind gets less / more off shore in the summer but the further south the harder it will be to get there for a quick trip.

If you can get to Medan easily it's easy to get to Niasa
