Just a short stroll from Monkeys Resort, South Telo is the fabled Sumatran “Beach Breaks”. These sand bottom beauties offer powerful world-class peaks in turquoise clear water, breaking meters from shore. It just doesn’t get any dreamier.
This is what Stab Magazine had to say about them “Active. Breaks on anything and close to shore — the shore being the most magical beach you’ve ever set your corneas on. A few kilometers of ivory grains kissing a hazy, singing, breathing rainforest teeming with monitor lizards and coconut trees and mabes an odd Sumatran tiger. I said mabes. Oh and the surf? Peaks on peaks of heavy, shallow pic-perf A-frames wedging, bending, growing and tooting you into Kingdom Come. ‘Frames the color of blue on an acid trip, mate. Water as warm as the blood bubbling in your surf-psyched bod, brother. Wedges with side-waves and weirdly fantastic refraction to slip in behind the peak of. (Mind your own grammar!) Too big over six feet, rampy and playful under three feet, heaven on earth at four feet, sweet prince. Quite powerful for her stature and size, mind you. (She bites!)”. See Stabs full take here.
