Unfortunately, all of the waves in the bay are only accessible by boat, but the bay has some of the best waves in Lombok Indonesia. REMEMBER: ALWAYS GO SURFING WITH AN ACCREDITED SURF INSTRUCTOR AND GUIDE. Tommy, Sawal and Roy are accredited surf instructor with Surf Schools International. Check out some amazing surf spots below:
On the map below – ‘G’ is for Gerupuk
- Kids Point does not break a lot but on a huge swell this starts to work. Perfect for beginners on a 4-6ft swell but anything bigger than that and the wave starts to throw and form a nice barrelling wave. Be careful of the reef here on a low tide.
- Don Dons is one of the best beginner waves in the world on a 3-5 foot swell. On a 10-12ft swell, this wave will barrel and challenge the most advanced surfers. Just 10 minutes boat ride away.
- Insides is one of the favourite places for surf camps. It caters to all levels. This faster moving break is a right hander 90% of the time but if you are lucky and the swell is smaller it will work both ways. This wave gets pretty crowded so our advice is to head out 830am (the sunrise surfers will be coming out of the water) and you’ll have a window of opportunity to surf it with a handful of people.
- Outsides right is a fun-throwing wave on a 3-5ft swell and when it gets big – this becomes the blenderrrrrrrrrrrrr (no that is not a typo – it’s how the locals say it)
- For the advanced surfer – outsides left is a heavier, faster moving, slab that will test the most advanced surfer. Be careful though – they locals don’t call the wave the Angry Lady for nothing. It’s shallow and the reef is sharp so if you are not paddle fit you will be caught in the middle.
It is at this point we remind you to ALWAYS GO SURFING WITH AN ACCREDITED SURF INSTRUCTOR, who is certified from a Surf school. Whilst the locals are great – some are not and you may end up in trouble. We recommend contacting Tommy who is an accredited surf coach.
