Begginer/intermediate surfers

« on: March 06 2013 21:03:00 »

wondering if anyone has suggestions for a nice spot for a begginer/intermediate surfer. Only been surfing for a couple of months. Saw someone suggest cimaja but am wondering if there are other places. Looking to go in May.
Thanks for any replies

Hello Olivia,

My first time surfing was with an agency called stoke travel. I joined the morocco surf camp and I must say i liked it! And the price is also very affordable! I suggest you check out the website of Stoke Travel, but Morocco is just me, there are many more which you can try.

Kind regards,

I read your post, I think you can try Abasi beach in Manokwari city of West Papua province. Daily flight between Jakarta and Manokwari is available every day by Sriwijaya Air, Express Air or Lion Air. Check this website:

Hi Olivia,

try looking up Batu Karas,  I read about it and said the waves are fun and long suitable for beginners/intermediate level.

Just want to drop a quick reply about Indonesia, ... there has already been a lot of info given and most of it is true: it is a surfer's paradise, but it can be very serious as well. A strong period swell there can bring solid waves, so choose your destination well.
There are still quieter spots, particularly South Sumatra. Check out
and send an email if you want any more info. it is a great wave and there are other waves around if it feels too big... it is a beautiful part of the world with friendly locals; well worth a look!
