The last few reviews above are all spot on. Any surfer is going to have a great time at Asu Camp and on the local waves. Earl was great. He knows what surfers need and provides it without fuss. That even extended to time in the water talking me into the sweet spots as he noticed my enthusiasm generally exceeded my ability. He was happy to run the boats to where ever the best waves are and his local crew were all very friendly and competent. Cant ask for more in that beautifully remote location really. I will no doubt be back.

This is the place to stay ...if you want to surf just with your mates in a variety of lefts and rights at different levels of intensity look no further! We were forced to go very late season 23 October to 3rd November (for Covid related reasons). I was a little concerned, but Earl assured me it will be fine, and it was! A grunty left out front and rights a boat ride away that are offshore in the opposite winds, so options are plenty with only three other surfers on the Island. Earl has an intimate knowledge of the complex weather patterns that come with being this close to the equator and knows when and where to be so he will get you to the pumping waves and he caters for the different abilities (some spots are heavy). The food is really good, healthy and plentiful and the bintangs always cold, staff super helpful and happy. The accommodation comfortable complete with mosi nets and fans mounted at the end of the bed inside the net (not that mosies seemed to be much of an issue) the air conditioning was so good ensuring a good night sleep.

If you’re looking for epic waves with very few others around then Asu is for you! Earl has the wave options all dialed in and you’re going to surf the best waves for that day. The camp has a great vibe and the food is EPIC!

Stayed for 10 days, scored waves all over the islands and good vibes at the camp right in front of Asu. Big uncrowded waves, barrels, turns, everything you want. The bungalows and food were great. Earl the owner is very knowledgeable of the breaks and conditions and makes good calls of where to surf. He, his family, and staff are all very friendly, care about the guest's experience, and want a good time just as much as you. A great way to get some totally uncrowded, pumping waves with good people.

Just returned from my first trip to Asu Camp. What an amazing experience! Surf was fantastic and uncrowded. Food excellent and plentiful and the staff was friendly and helpful. The accomodations were great with views of the waves and sunsets. As for our host Earl, he is the man when it comes to reading weather and surf conditions and getting you on the best waves possible. Well worth the effort to get there. I will be back.

Great place! Magic sunsets and a great view of the wave. The food was far better than I expected, and there is always more than enough. Cold beers at a reasonable price! Is surfing is your main reason for going to Asu, I would recommend this camp! Earl has the area dialed down, and knows where the best waves are to be found with different conditions.
