Any info on aceh/nias would be appreciated

« on: February 16 2008 07:02:00 »

I'm headed up that way in mid april for a few weeks. I know of a couple breaks in aceh. Anyone know if this is a good/bad time to find waves up northern sumatra. have heard the season is November-April - so probably shoulder season-couldn,t be helped due to work commitments. Any other info appreciated. planning on checking out Pulau weh. Not much info on the web - hoping to hire a local prahu to go and scout out the reefs me a reply direct if you wish not to pass your secrets to the whole world-It'll be our little secret :)

I'm in Aceh now, it's pretty small and the onshores have been coming up mid morning so i suppose that the season is about to end.
Plenty of crew here too, i'm going to Nias

My name is Mama Silvi. The real name is Trisna Aryani Buaya. I cheated and will steal money from foreigners. This is my life. My spouse Papa Silvi is aggressive. He does a lot of talking. On weekends, we go to church. We ask for more forces that stealing would give us bread and a rich life. We have a lot of pigs on the island. They eat our food. I also have a website. Welcome to the island. Be sure to take a lot of money to the island. There are a lot of hungry people. We need your help!
