Beginner/ Intermediate trip to Indo in Sept but where?

« on: July 14 2011 13:07:00 »

I'm heading to Indo for 3 weeks in September but am not sure where to go to avoid the crowds. Am not looking for any night-life or bling-bling, would simply like to concentrate on surfing and maybe practice some bahasa.
I'm a beginner/ intermediate.. am riding a 6'4" and can stand up and ride down the wave with small turns but that's all.
Am always worried I'm going to take someone else's wave when there's crowds about and so rarely catch waves amongst a big group.
Any and all ideas about where to go would be fantastically appreciated.
Thanks.

Sounds like your after fairly mellow forgiving waves, most spots on lombok are fairly mellow, as is Cimaja area of west java both areas are not that far of the tourist trail, so can be hit and miss crowd wise, but by September crowds are starting to thin a little.

The telo's in Sumatra has lots of mellow waves, but is super remote and a boat trip or surf camp is really the only option in visiting this area and quite pricey.

Not really that many other mellow wave options in Indo the odd wave or here or there, but generally most areas its hollow sucky reefs.

Mate sounds like the telo region in Sumatra would be perfect for you, I crowded waves and plenty of set-ups to cruise on, than when you get a bit of confidence there are some waves that will get you pushing yourself. Check out the waves guide at www.resortlatitudezer.com
