Bali is the safest of all of Indo...expect large surf and good sized crowds in August (peak season)
\nMandiri is on Sumatra. Looks like a good camp. It can be a real ***** getting to some of the camps in Sumatra, but likely worth your effort.
\nIndo waves are rarely "forgiving". Expect the shallowest sharpest reefs you can find at many spots. Your gonna have a very hard time surfing a longboard in most waves in Indo, unless you can rip on a longboard.
\nAvoid Jakarta as much as possible...fly in and fly out. It's a **** hole.
\nIf you are an intermediate surfer I'd go to Bali. It's safe, many different breaks that are very accessible, and there's amenities for tourists. Plus there are tons of girls.
\nI would go to Bali and if you have money take a boat trip maybe.

Yo Dudes! I'm trying to get to indo for the entire month of August. I would like to avoid the crowds and don't need to party every night. I'm intermediate-advanced surfer and seek forgiving points, reefs and tubes. I found a decent surf camp called Mandiri Beach club (fly into Jakarta). Can my 9'0 and 7'0 survive?
Anybody know of any gems that are safe for the solo American surfer? Thanks in advance for any stellar advice.
