Sumatra – Resorts and Camps
Fr $1270 AUD 13 Nights
The surf on Sumatra’s southern coast has something to offer everyone. We have found guys & girls with average to above average ability have the most fun out here. Krui’s surf region is wide, varied & our surf camp location makes all the waves accessible.
Being one of the few places here who’s owner actually surfs, take advantage of our 11 + years experience surfing south sumatra, we can organise our guests into cars or bikes to get amongst the other waves around and in the conditions they’re best surfed in if your keen to look beyond our doorstep.
We have hosted shortboarders, longboarders and bodyboarders, they’ve all been able to get amongst it and go home stoked.
Damai Bungalows sits directly infront of Ujung Bocor, the area’s longest, most consistent wave. It regulary turns on rides in excess of 200 meters. The top of the point provides barrel sections then rolls through to a long carveable wall for as long as you want to ride it. Definitely the longest, funnest wave in the area.
Besides the left out front, you can choose between barrelling lefts & rights, softer reef breaks as well as endless beachbreaks. We can provide you all the info you’ll need once here.

Traditional Indonesian lifestyle
Besides the waves in the krui surf area, this part of Sumatra still provides an insight into traditional coastal village life. No disco’s or bars, no pushy hawkers trying to sell you things, no maca’s or kfc. Guests often tell us that once here they can feel the stress of life back home wash away as they sink into the Indonesian pace of doing things, which isn’t real fast. You definitely wont die of stress out here.
