Where we will surf
No matter where you are on your surfing journey, the wave-rich region surrounding Kuta Lombok offers something for everyone. Unlike Bali, Southern Lombok is home to sheltered spots offering reprieve from big swells, waves with sand bottoms or "gentler," not-so razor-sharp reefs and lots of options to get out of the wind. The tricky part about this area is finding the best waves for a given day. Selecting the best spot given the swell size, direction, wind, tide and driving distance can be tough without local knowledge. That's why our trips feature local guides who will take the guesswork (and extra driving) out of getting the best waves for your skill level.
Waves in the area include:
Gerupuk: Inside is a gentle right-hander often frequented by beginner to intermediate surfers. Outsides is a more challenging left-hander. Boat access only. Don Don is a easy wave inside the bay that breaks left and right.
Ekas: Similar to Gerpuk, except less crowded. If conditions allow, all surfers will take a full day boat trip to Ekas. Inside is a right and left that suits beginning to intermediate surfers, Outside is a more challenging, bigger left-hander. Boat access only.
Mawi: Mawi picks up heaps of swell, often has favorable winds and changes drastically from low to high tide. You can go left or right. Low tide is best suited for experienced surfers, while high tide on a small day can be enjoyed by all skill levels.
Tanjung Aan: Fun right-hand wave for all levels located on famous tourist beach.
Selong Balanak: Beach break perfect for beginners, longboards and those wanting a less powerful wave.
Are Guling: Epic right-hander but a far paddle for experienced surfers only.
Seger: Right and lefts surfed on small swell by all levels.
"Secret" Spots: Our guides often have little known spots to check when the conditions align.
