The propagation of nonlinear slow sausage small-amplitude waves in a magnetic slab in a magnetic environment is considered. The equation for surface waves that is allied form of the Benjamin-Ono equation and the equation for body waves that is allied form of the equation for body waves in the slab are derived with the use of the method of stretching variables. The solutions of the equation for surface waves in the form of solitary waves are obtained numerically.
