 Access

It's a 6 hour drive from Banda Lampung, then about 20 minutes south of Krui, all the locals know where it is. Unless the swell is giant, best to enter right at the top of the point.

 Additional Information

This is a good, long, and consistent point/reef break in Southern Sumatra, that has alternate barrel and wall sections, depending on swell size, tide and direction. It's offshore/sideshore in the main swell season (May-October). It's a bit like Uluwatu in Bali, with different sections and moods, but perhaps not quite as good. Works on all tides, but locals say probably best on lower tides and west swells, but it nearly always has some kind of wave, unless the swell is very small. Barrels on good days, especially near the top of the point, when the reef can get dangerous. There are also often fatter outside walls if you don't want to hit the reef, which can hold very big waves (10 feet +). Often gets bigger down the line, but may closeout in front of a big, peaky end section. There is another good left/right peak about 1 km further down the point but only when the swell is giant. There are other good waves in the area.

go and stay in Ujung Bocur - Most people take a plane from Jakarta to south sumatra then a taxi, it is a bit expensive compare to the bus that go directly from Jakarta, the road is not that good but it is the cheapest way and quite ok if you take this company: Po san, but never take Krui Putra the worst bus i ever took. In Ujung bocur one of the best option is to stay at Ombak Indah, really great location in front of the spot, good food and room, book it before in the hight season but you can bargain in the low season. there is many other losmen aronnd just try to avoid the one named Paradise they have dirty cabanas with cokcroches and if you forget something you will not find it again!

Karang Nyimbor Hotel - new owner - 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 any more info. Longest left in front of the Hotel and other waves in the area if it feels too big... it is a beautiful part of the world with friendly locals; well worth a look!

The news everyone's been waiting for - News in the area is the Andy Watson (that 99% of people seem to dislike) - has now "apparently" been either "deported" or sent to "jail". So hopefully that'll mean less bickering amongst the camps from now on! Any additional information would be duely welcomed...
