- I've seen few pictures of the place, which are surely from that place. So it does exist. But where...

By anonymous , 15-12-2005

hmm, maybe he means to the north - when flying into padang there looks to be a good rivermouth about 5-10k to the north, hopefuly far enough out of town that the water will be safe, seen long lefts peeling of a perfectly shaped bank

By Tidur Ayam , 28-11-2005

Talk it up - Yep agreed. Waht a crock of shit. You can pretty much write off surfing 3 hours north and south of Padang except for Cholera Creek and a couple of crappy beach breaks in town. Go west young man
