Simeulue has the longest fetch out of any Indonesian Island.
It can utilize swells from the North such around India and the Maldives and does not just have to rely on southern swells like most other indonesian surfing spots.
It also picks up the full brunt of south swells as it sticks out at more of an angle than the other islands and is at the top of a 6km deep x 800mile + trench. Swells received here have a longer period, longer lines and barrels.

Winds & Water

As the area is located in the doldrums more often than not there is no wind.
When there is wind it is from a local storm which usually passes within 2 hrs and leaves a glass off shore breeze.
Water is very warm and very clear.

We also have a generator which may be used for filming.
Power points are located in the main building and all bungalows and are 240Watts
