Sumatra is reef breaks too, isn't it?  Not to mention - malaria.  I'm happy with Bali but Sumatra sounds kool.  Definitely off the beaten path... Sketchy though... Different culture.  The Balinese are Hindu.  Sumatra not...  I've heard stories...  Hide your credit cards, airline tickets, money and passport in a tree!  :)))  I can't even imagine if you get hurt in Sumatra.  Your doctor will be an Orangutan.  

PS.  Kuta reef on Bali can be mellow at times...  :)

The more I think about it, you can do both Bali and Sumatra.  Plane flights to Sumatra are dirt cheap from Bali.  Not to mention, Nev's travel agent is located in Kuta, Bali: Contact Freeline Tour and Travel in Bali on 0361 753394 or maruly5@hotmail.com. Or you can go to the office in gang Ronta #3 (off Poppies lane2) in Kuta.

One other thing,  these are surf camps.  You surf and then you hang out... and you better get along with the peeps you hanging out with... Ahhh... no night clubs or Kuta entertainment!  haha  Oh, and don't forget your helicopter medevac insurance.  Bali is bad enough if you get hurt....

Indonesia in general is serious waves for serious surfers.  Even big Kuta beach break at low tide can be dangerous.  Two waves in a row can crash on top of you, pushing right down into the sand.  Every year people drown.

The best place for casual, fun surfing is Jaco, Costa Rica.  You don't have to worry about days where it's too big to go out.  :)

Could not agree more Occy Hordes of euro kooks learning to surf in Indo are ruining the whole Indonesian surf experience paddling into line ups that they don't have the skills to surf endangering themselves and everyone else in the line up, Mate stay in Europe and go to spain with your friends, Ya

Just want to drop a quick reply about South Sumatra... there has already been a lot of info given and most of it is true, but to keep everyone up to speed... Andy the Yank is gone, gone, gone. Karang Nyimbor Hotel now has a new owner and agent, As those  that have already stay there know, it is one of the best places to stay on Unjung Bocur Point. Check it out
www.southsumatrasurf.com
and send an email if you want anymore 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!
