Surfing Nias, Lagundri Bay: The Point

When I hear surfers talking about Nias, my mind roams off to the perfect righthander that breaks in Lagundri Bay…

Located in the southern part of Nias, in Lagundri Bay the wave goes by many names: Nias, Lagundri or Sorake, but most often it’s called The Point.  This wave is a barrelling machine and is rated one of the top 10 and most consistent waves of the world.

The Wave

The setup is beautiful with a perfect right peeling of the point and coconut palm trees as a backdrop. Getting out there is super easy. There’s a keyhole that lets you paddle right into the take off zone. Due to so many surfers out there the line-up can be competitive. The take off is predictable and the wave is perfect!

Where To Stay

Arriving in Gunung Sitoli, it’s about a 2 hours drive to Sorake Beach, Lagundri Bay. Once you reach Sorake Beach there are plenty of losmen and surf camps situated in front of the wave. We stayed at ‘Marlyntos Losmen‘. They serve the best fruit salad with roasted peanuts and banana pancakes for breakfast.  The rooms weren’t 5 star, but they have a fan, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and are very spacious and affordable. View the rates here. The Buulolo family who own this losmen are lovely, kind and generous people. They make you feel at home. Justin Buulolo is an amazing surf photographer, rips at surfing and is one of the best locals out there.
