I know, you think we’re whoring ourselves out in hopes that we can go to the new “Latitude Zero” resort just north of the Mentawais…and guess what? You’re absolutely right…
We’ll say “no thanks” to the feral experience and book a room here…
Resort Latitude Zero Opens For Business In New Surfing Frontier
Telo Islands, Sumatra, Indonesia: Resort Latitude Zero has officially opened its doors for business and is already redefining the future of land based surf resort options in North Sumatra. Spearheading this ambitious project is Matt Cruden, one of the early pioneers to surf the archipelagos along the west coast of Sumatra in the early 1990’s and the owner of one of the most acclaimed surf charter boats in this region, the Mangalui Ndulu. Matt’s experience and know-how in this industry and this part of the world are second to none.
Scott Bass gives his snap of approval to Latitude Zero Resort.
The Telo Islands are one of the last remote surfing outposts in Indonesia. Straddling the Equator and situated just north of the Mentawais the Telo Islands offer an astounding number of surf breaks well suited for all levels of surfing abilities. Resort Latitude Zero is located in the geographic center of the entire chain offering our guests access to nearly two dozen waves all within a convenient 45 minute speedboat ride from the resort. From mellow pointbreaks to ominous barrels the Telo Islands have a perfect wave for everyone!
Resort Latitude Zero is set within a natural coconut garden on its own paradise island with clear, calm, aqua-toned waters lapping its shores. Our core philosophy and style is based on Queenslander-style comfort offering dynamic 270 degree ocean views, unique design features, a luxurious swimming pool, large chill out lounge area, high ceilings, and 8 air conditioned bedrooms. If you are looking for the most exclusive North Sumatra surf retreat, you’ve found it!
