Asu is offshore with South, South East and South West winds. The wave is a world class left and works from
3 to 12 feet. Bawa is offshore with North, North West and North East winds. The wave is a very spread out
right made famous by Tom Curren in the original Rip Curl Search videos. Bawa is never flat and never crowded.
We also have Stand Up Paddle boards for guests to use free of charge. We have 3 other waves to surf when
conditions are favorable that we look forward to showing you!

This is an exclusive and intimate venue, with a maximum of 14 guests, in a remote part of the world (as well as Indonesia). All logistics are taken care of to and from Medan – all you have to do is surf your heart out at the two world class breaks – Asu and Bawa.

You are within walking distance to Asu Lefts which is a world class left which works from 3 feet to 12 feet and is offshore with southerly winds plus you can also surf Bawa, which was made famous by Tom Curren when he surfed massive perfect waves on his tiny fish twin surf board! Stand up paddleboards are also available to explore the area and waves.
