Wave-riders all over the world dream of surfing at a place like the North Sumatran island of Nias. With two of the best surf spots in the world – “The Point” and “Indicator” – Nias’s Lagundri Bay offers year-round swell and challenging waves. As more professional and amateur surfers flock to the island for summer and winter trips, Nias is developing its tourist industry to cater to the rise in visitors. Surf camps, such as Double H Surf Camp, are being set up. Situated directly front of Indicator and 50 meters away from The Point, the camp also has an excellent views of Lagundri Bay. Double H provides full lodging services and generous meals. There is also ready access to instructional guides and surf equipment. Even if you’re a beginner, you can still try to ride Nias’s rolling waves on the beach’s calmer spots. For non-surfers, fishing and diving opportunities are in easy reach.  (Burufly Photo)

Lifetime journalist, author, magazine editor and publisher, now semi-retired and traveling the world. My plan, after living in Costa Rica for 14 months, was to visit a new country in southern Europe every three months to experience the culture and the challenge of adapting to a new environment, while on a fixed income. That plan was sidetracked when I was offered a job in Indonesia, providing an opportunity to explore Asia. Indonesia lasted for a 4 wonderful years but I have now moved on to Hua Hin, Thailand.
