What a place. Had 2 weeks here and couldn’t fault anything. Perfect, uncrowded waves on our doorstep, clean, spacious accommodation, great food and lots of it. Very well run operation, nothing is a problem for the FSH crew. Floating Surf House is THE place to stay in the Banyak Islands including value for money. Awesome waves, cool people, magic settup.

Two weeks in paradise. That is an amazing place to stay and surf. Everything you need to relax and enjoy the uncrowned waves is provided. We were so lucky. 
Thank you floating surf house team.

Such a unique place! The Floating Surf House crew is amazing! Surf was good, food was superb.

Thank you for an unforgettable time! The Floating Surf House crew are the most welcoming and heartfelt people. We (me & my wife) truly loved our 11 days with you. We surfed every day (for 11 days) and the early season (March) conditions were wonderful for us. We had 2 days of overhead waves (I got my first ever barrel), 7 days of shoulder high waves, and 2 days of waist high waves. Surfing, reading, laying in hammocks, ping-pong (thight matches!), banana pancakes (still dreaming of those), fresh fish, and lots and lots of peace and tranquility. Early season definitely treated us as we had the waves just for our selves and a couple of turtles. Once again thank you!

"The floating surf house is simply the best surf camp I have ever stayed at. I planned to stay for 10 days and ended up staying for 20. The surf is excellent, there are waves for every level and crowds are generally low. The house itself is amazing, clean, comfortable and a nice place to chill. It sometimes makes it hard to go surfing, especially when the cook is preparing delicious food all day: the best banana pancakes in the morning followed by fresh fruit then lunch and dinner, going hungry in these remote islands is not a problem. The best thing about the house though is the people, they do everything to make your stay really comfortable, they are surfers too so they know what you need and there's always a happy vibe in the house. 


Thanks guys and I'll see you next year, infact every year until I die, give up surfing, or have kids."

“The Floating Surf House…what can I say? It is unbelievable!!  I have done over twelve trips to Indo and I can say this is the best waves and environment I have got from any other trip.  The staff is fantastic.  They can’t look after you enough and the waves are exactly what I was looking for with only four of us in the water.  I have had incredible surf in other parts of Indo but not this perfect!  I will be back next year and will even bring my wife as everyone looks after us so well!  She will love it too!!  If anyone wants to know more email me at and I can fill you in on any questions.  I will recommend this as a must do for anyone who wants anything but normal.  It is amazing!  You have to go!”

From pickup to dropoff the FSH crew is top notch. The food was great and very plentiful. Accommodations were clean and comfy. Transportation to the house and to the waves was always smooth. Nice to be able to surf all the waves of the area but not deal with a rocking boat. And waves were epic world class and super uncrowded. Had to pinch myself a few times...all in all FSH delivers an amazing experience

"I stayed at the Floating Surf House in September 2014 which is in a bay surrounded by 3 surf breaks. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by the friendly staff & shown my room with comfy bed and views of the surf breaks. Within half an hour was paddling into my 1st wave @ a barreling right out the front with only 4 guys out. Ended up staying for 10 days and scored epic uncrowded waves with the highlight scoring Treasures,a right-hander (45 minutes in their boat) which has 3 barrel sections.The wave is all time!!! The food was really good,& also satellite TV to chill out in between surfs watching a bit of sport or a movie. Cool crew,amazing spot to stay with plenty of surf options & no crowds,I'll be heading back this year for sure...but longer this time."

"Hello everybody on the floating surf house!


We (Mats, Martin, Mattias, Anders and Olof) are very thankful for everything on our stay on the floating surf house.

You have been really nice to us and we think the trip was really really good. It is an amazing place and you really helped us a lot. The food was really good and we think the Floating Surf House is a awesome hang out spot for surfers and travelers. Thanks also for all the surf help. You really help us out there in the water and if it wasn't for you Mats maybe wouldn't have made the barrels.


We are already talking about going back soon so we will stay in touch."
