My best travel experience was this past summer surfing in the Banyak Islands, Northen Sumatra! Coming from the U.S I had no idea what to expect, I had never left the country. I was nervous but I knew it was going to be amazing. I lived on a boat for 20 days with 10 other surfers from around the world. We traveled around the uninhabited islands surfing, spear fishing, free diving, and straight chilling. Our days consisted of surfing, eating, sleeping, and beer! It was absolutely epic. No cell service, no technology, no worries. The only decision I had to make the entire trip was whether I was going to surf the left break or the right break. The Indian Ocean offers some of the clearest and most pristine water I have ever seen, as well as beautiful coral reefs as far as the eye can see. The days were long, and the sun always shined. We surfed every day from sun up to sun down. I met lifelong friends and discovered a world free from distractions and the everyday stresses of life. If you ever get the chance to go to Indo take it, you won't regret it. I am already planning my next trip. The picture below is me getting shacked in a perfect Indo tube... the spot is called Treasure Island... I now know why✌️️ -Jaxon Welchman
