South Sumatra is a semi secret! It’s talked about and even written about, yet details are sketchy and info is not detailed or direct. And that’s just the way we like it.

Situated deep in the southern jungles of Sumatra, this fairly remote and less visited area has some macking, epic surf. After flying into Jakarta on the island of Java, it’s an adventurous hour long flight plus a crazy 5 hour jungle drive to an area relatively close to Krui. This is a land based Mentawai type set up – just as consistent, fewer crowds but way more affordable.

This section of about 150 km of coast, is home to beautiful volcanos, beaches and jungle. It is also home to some cooking point breaks, reefs, slabs and beachies.

True Blue has recently visited and surfed the area, and personally gives it an A+ for surf quality, size, consistency and lack of crowds. It’s not an area for the faint hearted, and there are no “larney” resorts.
