Just got an email from Earl at Asu this morning. He is alone on the island working on the new camp, says its oil glass, and a small swell building which occasionally happens in January over in Indonesia. Said he will surf on the push of the tide and will surf all alone… While the North Pacific goes nuts (Mavs is huge right now) Earl surfs chest high Asu all alone. Think I might like to be with him right now. Photo is not from today…
Our good buddy Earl over at Camp Asu has been busy…
Here is a recent email he just sent to us about the new goings on over at Camp Asu. Check it out!
Hey Josh! Yes, we are now right on the point in front of the takeoff at Asu. Our old place is right in front of the last 1/4 of the wave looking up the point, our new place is right in front of the first 1/4, the take off, and looks down the wave as it peels away. It’s a really exciting point of view, puts you right in front of the main take off when you are on the beach and you can still see the entirety of the wave, but it really puts you in an intimate location with the takeoff. It’s very exciting.
The energy on our new land is amazing. Building under a high canopy of old coconut trees, we are right on the point, so we have the wave straight out front and to the right and then the sunset to the left. In our old place, out at the beach, we looked directly into the sunset to see the surf, the new place is much easier on the eyes. We are also still the only camp where you can wake up in your bed, sit up and see the surf out the window. This is one of my favorite things about Asu, to wake up and be right in front of it. I can’t live anywhere else anymore…
Right now we are starting in March by accommodating up to 6 guests in my spacious 3 bedroom house, I am calling it the Big House for now. My wife and kiddo are living in Bali for the season, so it’s just me and them, looking for the best surf of the day. We have 3 rooms. A master bedroom with a queen size and a single bed with attached ensuite bathroom. The second room has 2 single beds and the bath is a shared bath not attached. The third room is a spacious second story loft with one queen size bed and 2 single beds. There is a spacious living room and small kitchen and breakfast nook.
We are building a separate kitchen and dining room with an area for ping pong and foosball will allow people to have some additional space to spread out. There will be a TV there for slideshows of surf pics and the daily surf report where i post up screen shots of the daily Bouyweather reports and windy.com forecasts.
The first of 3 private and stand alone 2 person bungalows will be done in May. They can be set up with 2 single beds or one queen size bed. The second bungalow will be done in September, and the last one will probably only be in operation by next season. These bungalows will have the option for using AC for an additional fee. We are also building a big common area/game area and then a gym but those are likely not to get finished until 2019. Come on out!

Swells are lining up again in the South Pacific for October!
Looking at the models, October is looking like the new prime time for south swells.
The WAM shows decent sized south swells starting at the end of the week with possible good waves for Saturday with a wind shift from North to Southwest (offshore). There are multiple lows out in the South Pacific and it looks like decent sized surf for Mexico for the next few weeks.
First swell is forecasted to be starting around Wednesday with buoys at 3ft 20 seconds. This swell peaks Friday the 6th with bouys at 5ft 19 seconds. Swell drops into the weekend with more activity and better wind starting Saturday / Sunday 7th and 8th of October.
Low tides are in the mornings right now, with the lowest tides this weekend around 10am.
Schools back in session, crowds are mellow, sand is still hanging in there. This is good window to make a move!
Get in touch with us if you want to come down and enjoy Mexico this October.
Packages for October
1 surfer: $165.00 (US Dollars) per person
2 surfers + $150.00 (US Dollars) per person

Santa Cruz’s Scott Chapman just got back from a trip to Las Palmeras Surf Camp during that last swell and scored some pretty epic waves. Was super stoked to hear he scored down there.I am always happy when I send a client on a mission and it works out. Thanks for rallying Scott!
Good people, good waves good times! Just got back from Las Palmeras on Saturday. Scored some really good waves! There was a lot of swell and wind the first night and second day, but then it settled down a bit and turned on. Great sand at Canejo and especially Chivo! Took a boat ride and scored another spot. Can’t wait to get back! Scott Chapman
Aaron Bierman surgical strike from this August down to Las Palmeras Surf Camp. He scored!
My good friend Aaron Bierman scored some epic waves down at Las Palmeras Surf Camp last week. Surgical Strike paid off and he scored 4 epic days of pumping surf on a quick mission. It always makes sense to watch the swell and wind models and get down there for a mission. Not everyone has the ability to do this, but I try and keep my eye on it everyday, so if you are looking for a strike mission let me know and I will do my best to keep you in the loop.
