Visitor Reviews of Krui
“Great place for empty waves, although getting slightly more known now there is still loads of waves to find.
I stayed at The Mandiri Beach Club with the English Boys, really cool vibes, the boys know of loads of little secret gems, fair play to them it doesn't sound like it has been easy setting up their business due to the American (kruisurf.com) who allegedly tried unsuccessfully to steal everything from them, but Karma has finally caught up with him and looks like he's being deported, unlucky for him he apparently has a warrant for his arrest in America as well, looks like the whole place will be a better place without him, cant wait to get back there at the end of the year.”
