Lagundri Bay Strike Mission
14 nights from USD $1890
Spend 11 nights at Asu Camp and 3 nights down in Lagundry Bay on a strike mission. Lagundry Bay is one of the best right handers in the world, but if it’s flat or onshore, it can be a real drain.

Asu Surf Camp
Asu Island is 1 of 8 small islands in the Hinako Archipelago, 10km west of Nias in North Sumatra, Western Indonesia. You'll be staying in the only camp on Asu with a view of the wave and the sunset. Asu Camp is on the northernmost tip of the island, right in front of the action and the beauty of Asu, for the wave and for the sunset, it's the place to be.
Asu Surf Camp's remote location takes advantage of the deep water trenches which funnel south-west Indian Ocean swell into the area, giving Asu and Bawa their reputation for consistently pumping with overhead surf. Asu is a 200m left hand point break with 3 different barrel sections that will present challenges to every level of surfer. The break is situated on the northern tip of a small palm tree fringed island that you can walk all the way around in just 2 hours. Included in your accommodation is access to the surf breaks by a speedboat, when conditions are favorable for another spot. You can be surfing from a selection of 9-10 different waves in the area.
Organized transport to Asu is also included in your accommodation and starts from the airport on Nias Island. A car and driver will be waiting for you at the airport. The drive across Nias to the western port of Sirombu is approximately 2.5 hours. The speedboat will be waiting for you at the harbor in Sirombu and the crossing to Asu is 30 minutes in good weather conditions.
