Surf Lombok

 

Here is a short break down of the surf spots around Kuta, South Lombok.

 

Segar Beach, Lombok

Segar

Segar is a local break located 10 minute drive from Kuta. Intermediate/Advanced

You can paddle straight out from the beach. There is a Right and a Left, however the Right is more often working. This is a reef break, that is very shallow at low tide. The wave is shifty and quick. Normally a short wave, but you may get a long ride. It tends to work best on a small swell. Mornings and afternoons are best time, as it is open to the wind.  Nice place to sit and watch the surf or the sunset.

Ekas

A boat ride to the next bay after Gerupuk. About 1 hour from Gerupuk or 30 minutes from Awang.

Inside Ekas: Beginner/Advanced
It's a nice mellow A frame. Needs a big swell to break. Easy take off, nice long ride, and usually uncrowded. 

Outsides: Intermediate/Advanced
Outside Ekas is a heavy right hander. The wave is very tide dependent. Needs medium swell to be working. Long wave with barrel.

Inside Gerupuk Lombok

Gerupuk

A fishing village located about 20 minutes east from Kuta. You catch a small boat to your choice of 5 different breaks (depending on swell and season).

Insides: Beginner/Intermediate
Insides is a beautiful, mellow, long right hander that is almost always working. Reef is soft and covered with grass. Good wave on a medium swell, and can hold big swell also. Ideal for an intermediate surfer working on take offs and turns.

DonDons: Beginner/Intermediate. 
DonDons is an A frame wave. Needs a medium to large swell to break. Reef covered with grass. Easy take off with a long ride. Nice for beginners on a smaller swell. 

Outside Left: Intermediate/Advanced. 
Outside Lefts is a very fast A frame. Shallow with sharp reef. Swell magnet, so best on a smaller swell. Have to get it on the right swell and season, but when it is working it can be a very nice wave. Barreling sometimes.


Are Guling

First bay heading west out of Kuta.
Intermediate/Advanced

Are Guling is a large bay with a Right and a Left. Both are reef breaks, but plenty deep on mid to high tide. A ten minute paddle out to the wave. Can hold all swell. Works in wet season, on-shore in dry season. The wave varies depending on swell. Can be playful, fun, long ride with a nice wall or a fast long barreling wave. 


Mawi

About 30 minutes west out of Kuta.
Intermediate/Advanced

Mawi is known as a beautiful left barrel. But also offers a shorter right hander. Shallow on sharp reef. Off shore in dry season. The wave is fast, hollow, powerful and barreling. You can paddle straight out from the beach. Beautiful small bay, tucked away in paradise. 

Selong Belanak

About 30 minutes west of Kuta.
Beginners

Selong Belanak is most tourist “favorite” beach. Long white sandy beach, with a perfect beach break to learn the basics of surfing. You can nearly always find a wave with no fear of reef or a long paddle. Ideal for a day of hanging on the beach and surfing.
