Sumatra Surf Resort faces Ujung Bocor, the area’s longest and best left handed reef break. It ranges in scope from heavy dredging barrels to long carveable down the line performance walls with rides in excess of 200 meters. Ujung Bocur is extremely consistent and handles large swells well. In addition, the sheer length of the wave spreads out almost any crowd.
About 15 minutes north is a stretch of open beach called Mandiri, a length of South to West facing beach break.But get there early before the wind does. These banks can be awesome on their day, but being a beachie its always “right time, right place.”
The Peak Krui Left and Right
A further 15 minutes up the road and you are in the township of Krui, which has a variety of reef breaks, particularly good when the swell starts to creep up on the Point. The main ones are The Peak and Krui Right and Left. All are beautiful fun waves when the swell is too big back at the resort.Not a good idea to surf the right when the creek is open as the locals use it as a toilet and tip.
After here the next stop is Jenny’s right. It’s about an hour or so from our resort. It’s offshore over the rainy season or if the winds swing onshore at the Hotel. A fun right hand reef break running for 100 meters, with a couple of barely and long walling sections that can break on all tides. Early mornings sessions there can give some beautiful waves. It was named Jenny’s Right after Jenny Sheehan, a well know Sydney surfer who beat everyone out the back and caught the first known wave to be ridden there.
Honey Smacks and Jimmy's Left
About another 15 minutes up the road is Honey Smacks, a barrelling left hander more suited to the bodyboarders and a bit further on is Jimmy’s Right and Left. Best to check conditions before heading off. These are pretty serious waves and if you venture out there you’re guaranteed to come back happy!
Way Jambu- "Sumatran Pipeline"
Heading south from the camp also offers a variety of waves, the first and most famous being Way Jambu. It is one of the heaviest left to hander barrels, hence it’s nick name “Sumatran Pipeline”. This ruler edged, spitting beast is truly a word class wave. Low tide can be a scary take off with the water sucking off the reef just in front of you. Don’t look, just go and you’ll either get smashed or get the barrel of your life.
