Working Remotely in Sumatra
Sumatra is all about amazing nature and perfect waves.
However, unless you stay in the city of Medan (which is not where you want to stay to enjoy amazing nature and surf) according to reports, the internet connection and electricity can be unreliable around Sumatra.
Thus before heading on a remote work travel to Sumatra, make sure to ask your accommodation about the internet connection available.
Surfing in Sumatra
Being the largest island in Indonesia and the sixth largest in the world, Sumatra contains a lot of surf. The three main regions are:
South Sumatra and the Lampung district - Hard to get to but a huge amount of amazing waves surrounding Krui - the main surf town in the south.
North Sumatra and the Aceh province - Aceh is a bit easier to get to than Lampung and you have loads of surf spots around.
The Archipelago of Mentawais, Simeulue, and Nias - Every surfer's dream, these islands are often reached by surf boat trips.
The south of Sumatra generally works best during the European summer, while the north is the goto spot during the European winter
To get to the north region you can fly straight into the Banda Aceh Airport. To get to the south, there is a more than 5-hour drive from the closest airport Bandar Lampung. However according to Paradise Surf Camp, nowadays there is also a flight leaving a few times per week.
