Earl’s Updates – Asu Camp April 1st

2018-04-03T16:04:37+00:00

Here is an update from Earl over at Asu Camp. Super stoked to see all the progress he has made as he works his ass of in the jungle. Check out the photos as well. If you are interested in heading over to Asu please let me know, I would love to make that happen for you.

Hey Josh,

The new camp is coming along really well. We’re done with the Big House and received our first 2 guests from West Australia already. The new digs are so comfortable, spacious, and just so nice to be in a clean new space.

It’s so quiet at night with the new generator house so far away in the back of the property, just the sounds of the waves out front and the breezes through the coconut palm leaves.

The new bed frame designs with the fans inside the mossi nets is great, with shelving right by your head to keep your stuff at easy access. Sleeping is a dream.

The new land is amazing and it’s already starting to feel like home. Picking out new coconut trees for hanging hammocks. Just beginning the big job of landscaping, planting new trees and flowers, making new paths, just letting the way we live on the land direct the flow and adapting to the new space. That goes for furniture too, we’ve moved in the bed frames, but we’re just working out what we need and where, so we’ve brought out a furniture maker to do some custom shelves, cabinets, tables, and chairs.

The new kitchen and dining room are almost ready too!! So stoked!! We got a 50” TV for the new space to be able to put up the days pics over dinner or watch a movie, got a computer hooked up to it too with a hard drive full of movies and a speaker system flowing tunes all day and the same great food, cold coconuts, and fresh juices.

Building in Indo has been full of lessons in patience, new techniques of building, challenges, obstacles, and successes. We have been pretty blessed with good weather, so that’s been great. We’ve had 4 different teams of builders on the site so far, the Nias culture is super family centric and a bit transitory, so it’s hard to keep Nias people out here on Asu for a long time, they long for home and family, get cashed up, and flick off for a new scene… It can seem challenging at first, but it keeps bringing in new crew and fresh energy which has proven to be a good thing too.

We’ve been scoring some early season waves. January was exceptional with great weather and back to back SW swells. I spent February in Bali looking for furniture and finishing products like window coverings and light covers. There’s nowhere in Indo like Bali for finding creative home furnishings, everything the people make there is inspired with love, art, and craftsmanship. It’s just another level beyond the poverty and necessity that inspires most things here on Nias. And March has been pretty flat, some small waves out front and now that I have guests we’ve been getting really fun waves over at Bawa. But the flat spell was good for me to put my head down and get the camp ready for the first guests.

We’re optimistic for a great season. So far the weather has been really nice with light and variable winds, lots of sun, and just a bit of rain now and again. We’re anxious to see the Indian Ocean light up with the first swells of the season.

Photographer Grant Ellis and myself found a gem last week in Southern Mexico at Las Palmeras Surf Camp. Stoked to have already made a few trips down there is year. It’s setting up to be a good season so far, this week in particular should be firing with good swell and good winds. Let’s go!

Camp Asu is Now on the Point

2018-01-10T23:02:36+00:00

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!

October Discounts Las Palmeras – From $150 per day!

2017-10-02T23:04:53+00:00

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.

1 surfer: $165.00 (US Dollars)  per person

Scott Chapman Trip to Las Palmeras

2017-08-14T18:27:09+00:00

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

Pumping Swell in Salina Cruz at Las Palmeras

2017-08-04T16:42:54+00:00

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.

Asu Anyone? July and it’s going off

2017-07-17T23:00:32+00:00

Just got a text message from Earl over on the epic Isle of Asu a few minutes ago, talking about glassy, double over head rifling lefts all afternoon with a secret mission to the right in the morning. It’s windy and flat here… Anyone want to go? Pretty easy choice if you have the time. Hit us up if you want to make the mission happen.
