THE SURF: has minimum crowds and user friendly not to mention the walls, tubes time, cutback sections makes fun fun fun for all standards of surfers. For begginners there are some beach breaks and inside reforms.
LEFT – this can be surfed on all tides, it is a long wave that breaks best from 2 to 5 foot. The take off is wally and this wave continues to wall up and barrel. There are 2 take off points there seems to be some wider sets that come through frequently..
PEAK – This is your ultimate A frame peak with a punchy take off and then line yourself up for a barrel. The Left gives you a nice wall to work as well as a barrel. The right is straight into a barrel. Works best mid tides.. the left can be surfed at low tide also.. the right gets a bit sectiony at low tide. Best from 2 to 5 foot.
PINE TREES – This is an ultimate world class right hander that can break up to 200metres long.. although it needs a decent west or south west swell to get it firing. Best on Mid tides. This wave has a couple of take off points and stands up and barrels the whole way… depending on your speed you might be able to get out on the shoulder..but mostly surfers like to be in the pocket.. Best from 4 foot – 8 foot. The take off is friendly and then it stands up and takes you for the ride of your life.
RIGHT no. 3 - a short paddle north of the peak is another Right hander. This wave is best from 2 – 5 foot and is more of a workable wall with the occasional barrel. Fun Fun Fun. Best on a mid to high tide.
THE BEACHES: Absolutely stunning, with the Syariah Law in Aceh women will have to wear boardshorts and a one piece costume when swimming or surfing and for men absolutely no BUDGIE SMUGGLERS..
