Coming to Asu is like stepping back in time with no roads, no electricity, (don´t worry - we have a generator) and a population of only 50 so leave your "hurry" at home.
From Mama Silvi´s Bungalows it is a leisurely 15 minutes walk through the lush tropical jungle and coconut palms to the left-hander on the north end of the island. This is a world class wave that works on any size swell and the trade winds blowing from April to October are offshore. Bawa is easily accessed by boat from Asu and is a deep water right-hander discovered by Tom Curren years ago. There are other spots to surf in the Hinako Islands and you can discover these when you come to visit. If you want world class waves in a very relaxed tropical setting then book some time with Mama Silvi.
Perfect waves are not the only attraction on Asu with excellent fishing on offer – Take advantage of a great catch for the makings of a beautiful dinner. If you are a spear fisherman bring your gear as the water is crystal clear and you will surely enjoy a great catch and it is a fantastic way to take a rest from the surfing.
We will meet you at the airport in Gunungsitoli for your transport to Asu. From the airport in Gunungsitoli, the main city on Nias we go by car across Nias to the port of Sirombu which is approximately 2.5 hours through mountainous terrain with a speedboat waiting for you at the harbor in Sirombu. The boat crossing from Sirombu to Asu is half an hour, weather permitting. It´s a great trip!
If you stay with mama Silvi you’ll be surfing the perfect outer island waves of your dreams and when the swell and conditions are right there are many other nearby surf spots to explore.
