Surfspots Sumatra / Java only for experienced/pros?

« on: April 14 2012 14:04:00 »

Heading to Indo next week and want to avoid the Bali crowds. Right now Aceh is on the map as well as Lampung/ Krui area.  I know he ropes of surfing but since I am only in the water for two weeks a year, I´ll be flying of my board quite a few times and do not want to slice myself up ( as I have seen that many breaks are shallow reef and on wannasurf marked as for pros and experts only), I now got second thoughts about going to Sumatra instead of Bali.

Anyone surfed Sumatra mainland and can give some advice on this? Is it all more shallow reef breaks or are there also more mellow spots or at least some with a few feet of water that do not send you right to the rocks? Any spots to recommend?

Thanks!

Getting a bit late for aceh, winds onshore april to Nov

Krui area mostly shallow reef, karang nyimbor and krui left not so bad, but can still cut you up, mandi beachie packs some punch.

West java would suit you much better, some fun but not to shallow or heavy reef with sand such as Cimaja and Loji's and few others.

Kooks shouldnt go to indo. All you guys do is drop in on the shoulder when someone is deep in a heavy pit.

Went to Krui last year. Not for beginners. Very sharp coral that can't be avoided and can get very big.
