Ujung Bocur is located at Tanjung Setia beach a few km south of Tanjung Setia town. Turn off the W Trans-Sumatran Hwy onto Wisata street at the entrance to Tanjung Setia beach. Walk 200 mtrs to Ombak Indah surf camp, then turn down the lane to the beach. You can park your scooter right in front of the break. This is also a good spot to sit and watch the surf.
There are a few places to paddle out, best place depends on the tide & current. Most popular is south of the wave, watch others to see how successful they are. If local surf photographer Nana Gapero is there he is a good person to ask for advice.
