World Surfaris is now booking the new South Sumatra Surf Resort. Once you get over the journey to reach this remote destination, you will be chilling out and surfing a world class left that does a good impression of G-Land. The resort faces Ujung Bocor, the area’s longest and best left handed reef break. It ranges in scope from heavy dredging barrels to long carveable down the line performance walls with rides in excess of 200m. Ujung Bocur is extremely consistent and handles large swells. In addition, the sheer length of the wave spreads out almost any crowd. Besides the left out front, you can choose from barreling lefts and rights, softer reef breaks as well as endless beach breaks.
The beautiful beaches of Krui, the challenging Jimmy's Point, bodyboarder heaven Honey Smacks, swell magnet Banana Island and the loooong lefts of Ujung Bocor is enough to get any surfer frothing on a trip to South Sumatra.
Although well known with travelling surfers, the area remains relatively untouched by tourism and is often described as the 'real indonesia' or what Bali was like 30 years ago. You don't need to go too far to experience a huge variety of waves.
As you pass by the numerous coconut plantations, damar gardens, rice fields and local villages you find crystal clear waters, perfect not only for your daily surf fix, but a leisurely swim, snorkel or spearfish.
Consistent all year but best from Apr - Oct.
