A small day in Nias
Footage by Marcio Nagano

NIAS located in North Sumatra is one of Indonesia's last surfing frontiers. It receives similar swell to the Mentawais and enjoys a peak swell season from May to September. Despite Indonesia's reputation for hollow lefts, in North Sumatra right handers are slightly more prevalent.
Access is easy thanks to a break in the reef called "The Keyhole" that will spare you getting over the sand bar no matter how big this obstacle is. The reef itself is not dangerous compared to other surfing spots in Indonesia. The corals are abundant but not aggressive. Because of the geographical position of the archipelago, this cluster of islands is one of the most interesting areas in the world.
