Yudis Surf House

Located in the top northern tip of the Island of Sumatra. Just about smack bang on the Equator. The waves on offer here are as picturesque as the beaches. With Warm waters, tropical surroundings and no crowd. This sleepy coastal township has some amazing people and scenerary. Everyone is easy going and so are the waves, with 5 waves within 200metres walk from your accommodation. 

Yudis Place is a small and friendly, family run establishment, just minute's walk from the reef break and kitesurfing bay, with beautiful and white sandy beaches, with a jungle covered mountainous backdrop. You can soak up the local atmosphere and stroll through Lhoknga village, visit the fish market, watch the boats move up and down the wide river, or hang out with the locals in the coffee shop.

Come and stay in one of our comfortable rooms, each overlooking a private, secluded garden. Each room is en suite, with a Western toilet, sink and shower. Each room sleeps two, with a large, family room also available, sleeping four. Extra beds may be made available at extra costs, at the owner’s discretion.

In between surfs, guests are welcome to snooze in the garden pondok, rock in a hammock, or enjoy a tasty menu of snacks and meals in Yudi’s Place Cafe. Yudi’s Place also has an espresso coffee machine and uses only the best Arabica coffee beans from the famous Gayo Highlands in Sumatra. Beans are also on sale and make great souvineers to take home.

This place is an absolute must do. The beaches and there breaks are magical, the people are friendly, the vibe is chilled, located far away from Bali, this area is so pristine and there is also stuff to do.. golf course next door you can visit the island of WEE and Sabah lies right on the equator, a great adventure for those looking for something different.

The Surf

THE SURF: has minimum crowds and user friendly not to mention the walls, tubes time, cutback sections makes fun fun fun for all standards of surfers. For begginners there are some beach breaks and inside reforms.

LEFT – this can be surfed on all tides, it is a long wave that breaks best from 2 to 5 foot. The take off is wally and this wave continues to wall up and barrel. There are 2 take off points there seems to be some wider sets that come through frequently..

PEAK – This is your ultimate A frame peak with a punchy take off and then line yourself up for a barrel. The Left gives you a nice wall to work as well as a barrel. The right is straight into a barrel. Works best mid tides.. the left can be surfed at low tide also.. the right gets a bit sectiony at low tide. Best from 2 to 5 foot.

PINE TREES – This is an ultimate world class right hander that can break up to 200metres long.. although it needs a decent west or south west swell to get it firing. Best on Mid tides. This wave has a couple of take off points and stands up and barrels the whole way… depending on your speed you might be able to get out on the shoulder..but mostly surfers like to be in the pocket..  Best from 4 foot – 8 foot. The take off is friendly and then it stands up and takes you for the ride of your life.

RIGHT no. 3 - a short paddle north of the peak is another Right hander. This wave is best from 2 – 5 foot and is more of a workable wall with the occasional barrel. Fun Fun Fun.  Best on a mid to high tide.

THE BEACHES: Absolutely stunning, with the Syariah Law in Aceh women will have to wear boardshorts and a one piece costume when swimming or surfing and for men absolutely no BUDGIE SMUGGLERS..
