Trip Information

What to Expect

Guests staying at Sumatra Surf Resort will have easy access to the regions premier wave, Ujung Bocur. Although views of the line-up from your bungalows aren't possible, you're never too far from the lookout tower that gives a pretty good view of the wave. The wave itself is just a short 5 minute walk away

As soon as you've checked in, you're free to surf! Most guests prefer to spend most of their time surfing Ujung Bocur, but others prefer to mix it up and also surf elsewhere. The staff can always rent you a motor bike (approx $5/day with rack) and give you directions to the other waves.

Our trip to Sumatra Surf Resort did not disappoint. We’d never surfed before and so we needed looking after. Our surf lessons were just what we needed and we had a blast. Evenings were spent relaxing back at the camp. The food was plentiful and tasty. All in all a great trip thanks.

Spent a week at SSR with a few friends in June. The resort is located in a great location, right next to the rain forest - you literally walk about 50m from your bungalow to check out the surf! Surf was great, food was great and the bungalows were great too!
