The Surf



Infront of the resort's Restaurant we have Tropical Left, a long ripable left hand pointbreak with waves breaking lonely day after day.
There is also a right hand point on the other side of the channel. Fast at the takeoff and then breaks slowly into deep water channel. Perfect for beginners to sit wide on the shoulder.

Tropical Left


Tropical Right


OTHER WAVES IN THE AREA (Yoyos, Super Suck, Scar Reef...)

If you get bored and lonely of surfing a perfect left infront of your accommodation...;-) the surfguides will take you to Yoyos or other local waves like Super Suck, Big Brother, Scar Reef, Little Bingin, Donuts, and a few other secret spots...

Yoyos picks up a lot of swell. Its a fun right hander good for all levels.  Super Suck needs a bit more swell than other waves to break. Very good, extremely long rides!!!  Scar reef  is a good left hander. There is another smaller super fun wave right next to it called little Bingin. Breaks left and right.



This part of Sumbawa gets great surf 12 months a year!!!

The months from June to August get the biggest swells and are perfect for SuperSuck and Scar Reef blowing offshore winds all day long.Mornings and afternoons can still be fun out the front.

The in-between seasons of Sep-Nov and March-May can be the best for our front-yard Tropical left and right, with glassy conditions every morning and only light winds some afternoons. Although Christmas , Jan and Feb can also be insane and no crowds!


There is very good Fishing and spearfishing all year long. The season for Giant Trevally is from October to May. August and September are very good months for Trolling for Marlin. We have some fishing rods, spearguns, and snorkling equipment free of use for our guests although we suggest to bring your own to avoid disspointment or limited material for all guests.


If you dont want the hassle of bringing along your surfboards, being overcharged at Check in counters, carrying them half way around the world, and still risking them being broken or even lost, we can offer you Firewire surfboards to rent from us only if booked in advance as we have them at our Bali Surf Resort . Just tell us what size you would like to ride.

1 Days 40 USD
3 Days 90 USD
7 Days 150 USD


This part of Sumbawa is not ideal for beginners but surf classes can be taught on high tide if swell conditions allow it.
300 USD per person per week. 5 days of 2 hour surfcourses. Equipment and transport included.
Has to be booked well in advanced.

The Location

This truly exotic accommodation is located on a secluded beach on the south west corner of Sumbawa near to Maluk, about 45 minutes away from Lombok. Only minutes away from Yo-Yo's, Scar Reef, Super Suck and other world renowned surfing spots.

Also inside the area of The Resort complex, and next to our private Airstrip runway, is a huge plantation of Dragon Fruit , Aloe Vera, and Banana that you can visit with our guide.

Getting to the Resort

You just need to buy the plane ticket from your country to Bali or Lombok. Transport from Bali or Lombok to the Resort Included in our packages.



You can start your trip with us in Bali.

We include Flights from Bali to New airport Lombok, Minibus Drive from Lombok Airport to Port and Private speed boat from Lombok to Sumbawa.*

The flight leaves  Bali every morning at 7.00 AM. It’s a 35 minute flight to Lombok. You need to get yourself to the Domestic Terminal of Denpasar airport at least one hour before departure.

Our driver will be waiting for you at Arrivals of Lombok Airport and will drive you (1.5 hr) in our comfortable vehicles with AC to the port where the private Fast Boat will take you (75 min) to Sumbawa. This is not a regular public ferry. It’s a private fast boat. The port in Sumbawa is only 30 minute drive to from our Resort. Everything is organized. You will arrive at the resort around noon in time for plenty of surfing.

On the way back you will leave Sumbawa at 2 pm (unless conditions force to take earlier boat) and do the same trip back and will arrive to Bali at 20.45 pm.





You can now also fly directly to Lombok from Perth with Jetstar on Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays or tuesdays and we meet in Lombok airport. Flights usually arrive at 2 pm to Lombok. We pick you up and drive you to fast boat at 4.30 pm. You will arrive at Resort by 7 pm.

On the way back you leave resort early in the morning to get the 7.30 am fast boat from Sumbawa to Lombok. You will be at the airport by 11 am.


We recommend NOT to book your international flights into Bali on the same day of arriving to the Resort. We suggest you sleep in Bali the night before arriving to the resort. Arrival and departures are available any day of the week ask us for information.


We have a Surf Resort in Bali where you can stay for a few nights before and after the Sumbawa trip.  We organize all airport transfers, meals etc. 



* Ferries and flights are services we help organize to bring guests to the Resort. We try helping making it as comfortable and fast as possible for the clients to arrive to this remote area of West Sumbawa. We are not responsible for any changes on the schedules due to weather or technical, or any other problems not under our control. We are not responsible for loss, damage, or delay of Surfboard bags. If boards get left behind Nomad Resorts will help organize everything to get the boards to the resort. Extra costs to be paid by the guest.

If Fast boats get cancelled or we don't make it on time due to traffic or any other reason, the crossing will have to be done on public ferry. We will organize everything.



When searching for flights to Indo, try searching only until Singapore. And from there you search for another lowcost until Bali or Lombok.

And more...

Alltime ...i've been around bali and other parts of indonesia 6 times i even got married in bali ive now found a new indonesian home in the nomad camp in sumbawa. The location is set in a remote part of Sumbawa so the crowds are non existent there are a number of world class waves in a short distance if the left and right out the front aren't working although in front of the resort worked every day i was there. For 2 weeks and i surfed with my mate everyday out the front and it was rare to see other people out there....the snorkelling out the front is spectacular its abound with tropical fish...The surf guide indra and his friend katherine there made my trip even more memorable with his hospitality and genuine kindness and generosity he is definitely a friend for life and i cant wait to take my wife back to nomad surf camp so i can surf all day and she can relax and get massages and enjoy the tranquillity that this part of indonesia has to offer...The resort is classy and has a huge gym and pool looking over the surf break....there is a very good golf course 2 minute away from the the resort and you get to play with monkeys on about the 7th hole. drinking cold beers being handed to you by your own caddie and playing golf with friends and monkeys makes for a memorable golf game. The food at the resort was excellent ranging from imported australian angus steak all the way to mexican food to local indonesian food.ive been to allot of surf camps around the world and this is easily the best due to the uncrowded waves jungle excellent snorkelling great golf course wide range of food and top shelf accommodation and staff.

Zoragarria, fantastico, wonderfull, marveilleux ... Sería demasiado egoista guardar en secreto este paraiso del surf, golf, relax, playas paradisíacas y buena gente, con mención especial para el surf guide Indra, un auténtico Mc. Guiver, con recursos para todo y un espiritu inigualable. Gracias Jose por habernos procurado unos de los días más inolvidables de nuestras vidas, continúa con este proyecto porque estás consiguiendo algo fantástico. Nos vemos pronto, Marta eta Iban.
