MOCEAN. A film by Chris Bryan from Chris Bryan on Vimeo. I love filming in the ocean more than anything, its not just a job, its a...



Nias Island sits off the west coast province of North Sumatra, Indonesia. 
Lagundri Bay is situated 48 nautical miles north of the equator with tropical weather and temps averaging around 30 degrees. 
The bay’s surrounding hills and valleys tend to make for constant, steady and daily offshore wind conditions. 
The geographical position of the SSW facing Lagundri bay picks up all ocean swells. 
As you enter the front gate of KabuNohi Sorake you instantly feel like you’ve entered a very special tropical oasis. 
The unique building structures, local artifacts and vegetation offer an instant impression of paradise and the quality of the resort is immediately obvious. 
KabuNohi Sorake is a ‘hand-made resort’ and the first upscale resort in Nias.
It is fair to say that the Sorake surf point is the safest readily assessable and consistent high quality surf break along the west coast of Sumatra

At KabuNohi Sorake, our passion is surfing!  

Besides having the prime point wave on your doorstep, there are also other surf options in the immediate area.
Several of these locations may depend on your surfing/waterman skills and in our immediate vicinity there are locations that work on variety of conditions.
We have local guides to accompany you on sightseeing excursions to experience the Niasian culture and sites.
Nias has an old and colorful history and head hunting and slave trade was prevalent in this region.
The south of Nias was inhabited by hard warriors and dominating kings of the hilltop villages.
The unique architecture of these villages can be still seen today.
