General surf information

Krui Right is a fast right-hand break which sections unless conditions are perfect. Watch out for wider sets on bigger days. Being hidden away behind a headland this wave needs a big SW swell to be good. To be excellent Krui Right needs a W swell which seldom happens. It can hold 2 mtrs with a fast barrel and steep drop. Most of the year it is 1.5 mtrs or less. Experienced surfers.

This surf spot can get v-e-r-y polluted if it has been raining because the river empties out close by. It's not advisable to surf here the first day after a big rain.

Local Krui photographer Muhamad Hasim's has a photo collection of Kri Right taken throughout the year. Surf photographer Nana Gapero also has images of this wave on his instagram page.
