Love to Surf? Check out the Sumatra Surf

Sumatra offers exciting waves, epic scenery and vast swells. Sumatra Surf is of a particularly high standard between the months of March and November, and a substantial number of quality surf packages have been made available to the public over recent years. You may be amazed to see just how spectacular the waves in the region are. What’s more is that you should never struggle to find uncrowded quiet spots for surf whenever you need them.

Swells reach between 6-12ft between March and November and 3-6ft during the rest of the year. The Lampung district in the south of the region is a major hub for wave seekers. This district is where you’ll find the town of Krui, which has surf spots on either side of it. Ujung Bocur (sometimes incorrectly called Karang Nyimbor) is a noted spot for surf. The Banyak, Hinako and Simeulue Islands are also ideal for surfers as well as explorers. You may well wish to head out on a charter boat if you wish to explore the region in style. There are various left and right handers on offer and waves to suit all types of surfing in the region.
