Surf & Other Activities

Surf Breaks

  • Way Jambu - Way Jambu or Sumatran Pipeline, as it’s also known, is one of the most perfect waves around - but for experienced riders only.
  • Mandiri - This quality beach break is a 20 minute drive from Karang Nyimbor.
  • Osamas - These beach breaks is an ideal learner wave and conveniently close to the camp.
  • Bali Village - On its day this left and right breaking wave is a must visit.
  • Krui Left & Right - A quality bowly left hander that needs a bit of swell to start to work. Meanwhile, nearby Krui Right is a superb right hander, one of the best in the area but needs a bit of swell to start to work. While at Krui, you can also catch a boat to Banana Island (see breaks out of Drew's).
  • Mosquito’s / The Peak - A heavy peak that offers a short but perfect barrel.
  • Drew's Right - This idyllic right hander is the perfect surf spot if you want to surf on your own as although there are local people around, there are no local surfers. Breaking for approximately 100 metres, this right breaking wave offers a bit of everything - from decent barrel sections to big open faces. Unlike Karang Nyimbor, this wave’s entry (although steep) is relatively easy. Once on the wave various sections are on offer - depending on the size of swell and its direction. The end section will always close out - and can be pretty shallow. This wave breaks year round, but is offshore more in the off season. It faces more south east, but still receives a large amount of swell - as most swells are from the south or south west. The wave breaks on coral reef and therefore reef boots are recommended. Getting out to the lineup is quite straight forward - you just have to time your entry. Coming in can be slightly trickier on a lower tide as it can get quite shallow.
  • Jimmy's Left - 10 minutes from Drew's, this world class left hander produces endless barrels.
  • Jimmy's Right - A stone’s throw away from Jimmy's left, but nothing like it if you want heavy sucky barrels.
  • Walur - Just a short drive from Drew's, Walur produces heavy sets of perfect waves.
  • Banana Island - Take the short 15 minute boat ride from Krui to ride these two rarely ridden waves that break around the island.

Other Activities

The Perfect Wave was awesome ! From first call to welcoming me home I could not have asked for better service. Everything worked like clockwork and took the stress out of travelling so we could kick back and enjoy the stoke of the trip. Ombak Indah was how a surf holiday should be great place, incredible food, wonderful helpful staff and perfect waves right out the front. I have travelled with other companies but The Perfect Wave leaves them for dead. 5 star service.

Hey Richie, Just wanted to throw you a heads up that we're back from Sumatra and had a ball. The Losman was great - Nev and his wife Annie were super accommodating. Luckily, we arrived around a swell window, as it jacked up to 8-10 feet for Wednesday and Thursday (see attached photo). Plenty of other waves around as you mentioned and everything was great. Definitely a perfect budget trip. Thanks again,Justin
