Located in Savu, Indonesia, Raijua has a couple of breaks, the best being a long left-hand reef that offers up some great barrel sections. The waves here can be challenging and break for up to 200 meters over a coral reef. Not that easy to get to, the island is desolate so get a boat.
What are the best surf conditions for Raijua?
Gets good between waist high and triple overhead. We recommend riding a shortboard here if smaller and then a step up as the size picks up. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced level surfers. The surf here is pretty consistent (6/10) and will generally be uncrowded (4/10). The best winds are from the Southeast. The best swells are from the Southwest and West. Works best on a low to mid-tide.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini year-round. Water temperatures rise to 28 degrees in the summer before dropping to 25 degrees in the winter. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
