me and my bro in Indo..... (help)

« on: June 17 2009 09:06:00 »

My bro and i are novice surfers (catching a "carving" 50% of what we go for, 4ft in Santander being the biggest we've surfed) and we want to experience Indo for a couple of months. Does anyone have any suggestions for surfcamps or destinations, and times of year we should try?
any info would be appriciated thanks.

Don't worry mate, just look up the old posts in the Indo section of this site and there's more info than you can poke a stick at..

i'm in the same position dude, there doesn't seem to be many cool beach breaks apart from pacitan in java. What i want to know is there any nice friendly deep reef breaks where an intermediate rider can comfortably get munched without fear of having his face gauged out by reef spikes?

Research means look up every spot on
and all the surf guide books on indo you can find.
Find a wave that you like, investigate further with accomadation, how often it breaks, how often its too big,
etc etc etc.
No good surfer will give all that info online. You have to do it yourself.
Ps Indo isnt the place for learners, but there are a few options if you read a few guide books you might find some. (Note- just about every where has a learners wave- you just have to hide from swell etc, they exist just about everywhere, even in hawaii in winter...Just go to the south or west or east coast- hide from swell
