SURFING IN NIAS
BEST BEGINNER SPOTS

The Point (Lagundri Bay)
BEST ADVANCED SPOTS
Located just above the point at Lagundri Bay, Indicators is the point’s needy and gnarly cousin. Under the right conditions, Indicators can throw some of the thickest barrels in Nias let alone the world. Indicators breaks over a short section of sharp and shallow reef which fires hairpin barrels. On a high spring tide, under ideal conditions, Indicators can offer expert level barrels for those willing to take the risk.

How to get to Nias?
Step 1. To fly into Nias, you’ll need to travel to Medan, Indonesia’s 4th largest city, and the only airport currently offering flights to Nias.
Step 2. You’ll fly from Kualanamu International Airport in Medan into Binaka Airport in Gunung Sitoli on the east coast of Nias. Flights on and off the island are relatively cheap ($90-120 USD).
Step 3. Then it’s about a 3-hour car journey around or across the island to Nias’s more famous surf breaks in the southwestern corner.
