Krui Right in Sumatra(Indonesia) is an exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf. May-Oct (Dry Season) is the best time of year for waves. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. The best wind direction is from the east. There is a right hand reef break. Surfable at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for urchins rocks and sharks.

Krui Right SURF INFORMATION AND TIPS

A long stretch of occasionally firing beachbreak precedes the bustling town of Krui where two reefs flank a nice beach that is unfortunately polluted by the townsfolk and when the rivermouth opens. Krui Right is a zippy, peeling righthander that needs a bigger SW-W swell to break clear of the reef and is surfable through the tides.
