The Surf:

Krui is a small city in South Sumatra and they have  many exposed beach and reef breaks that generate quite reliable surf.  May-Oct (Dry Season) is the best time of year for waves. The best wind direction is from the east northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. Ujung Bocur (ujung is point in Bahasa Indonesia) is a very long left hand reef break. Unlikely to be too crowded even when the swell is up.

The waves breaks through a few sections starting with the Point which can produce a hectic barrel and then a super fun fast rippable wall and finishes with another barrel on the inside. Really a great wave and is great from 2 foot and up to 8 foot. It starts getting a bit out of control when its super big so the ideal size is 5 - 6 foot for some fun waves.

The Krui area of Southern Sumatra is a remote location, far from the crowds of Bali. Here you can still discover the real Indonesia. It´s not just Sumatra´s Longest Wave  our losmen is surrounding by classic Indo waves such as Way Jambu ("Sumatra Pipeline"), Krui left and right, The Peak, Honey Smacks, Jimmy´s left and right, Jennys and the world famous Mandiri beach breaks.

For the more adventurous there are other less surfed breaks to be discovered along this coast. Karang Besi offers private, budget accommodation and delicious fresh food to traveling surfers. Come and surf at Ujung Bocur and stay with us! We are located literally in front of the longest and most consistent wave in Sumatra - Ujung Bocur or as it is sometimes called Karang Nyimbor.

Beautiful beaches with good waves and not too crowded Karang Besi Surf Camp is located literally right in front of the longest and most consistent wave in Sumatra

We hope to accommodate all those seeking a great low budget experience to join us and have a safe and fun Surf-Trip.

Ujung Bocur

This is the longest lefthander in Indonesia. And if you get it firing on a good south west swell you will never forget it.
