About Sumatra + Mentawais

In season between April and October when swell swinging up from the Roaring 40s and Howling 50s march south-west across the Indian Ocean and the light trade winds blow from the south-east. Even during the off season when the trade winds switch to west and north-west there are still classic waves to be had and the swells are still regular. Sea temperatures remain steady at around 28°C or 82°F. Nias was the first wave to be discovered in 1975 by Australian surfers and undoubtedly remains the most famous.

Scott Burger's photo of Mandiri got picked for photo of the day.

This photo was from my once-yearly trip to Sumatra to get away from the crowds. This session was just before sunset and the sky started to turn on, the colours continued to get more and more vibrant from bright orange to bright red and an amazing deep purple over the mountains behind me. This was the most amazing sunset I experienced on the trip, if felt very surreal because of the intensity of the sky, I'd never seen anything like it before.
