Matt Hoy (Australian Pro surfer)

The Nomad Tropical Hotel is one of the best resorts I’ve been to. It’s mellow fun and you can surf all day.. You have the left out front, Yoyos down the road and Super Sucks close by… If you want to have a fun uncrowded surf trip with a variety of waves this is the place to go!

In front of the resort’s restaurant we have tropicals left, a long rippable left hand point break. 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.



This part of Sumbawa is not ideal for beginners but surfclasses can be taught on high tide if swell conditions allow it.

300 USD per person per week. 5 days of 2 hour surfcourses. Equipment included.

Has to be booked well in advanced to guarantee the instructor



If you book the Surf Guiding (Surf Pass) you will be able to jump in the vehicles with the surf guides who 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, it is 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.

LITTLE BINGIN: is another smaller super fun wave right next to Scar Reef, breaks left and right.


Only guests with SURF PASS bracelets booked in advance will be able to get in the vehicles. Surf pass paid upon arrival is more expensive than if booked in advance. 



Pick up your custom board made in Bali, time frame: We need at least 11 working days (no counting Sundays) from the moment the deposit is paid for fiberglass orders. But we recommend 3 or 4 weeks before. For any epoxy, epoxy bamboo or duralite boards we need 18 working days, and we recommend the deposit to be paid one month before the delivery date. Ask us for more info.


The surf in West Sumbawa is great all year round! The months from June to August get the biggest swells and are perfect for SuperSuck and Scar Reef blowing offshore winds all day long so that is where we surf most days. But the morning and afternoons can still be fun out the front of our resort.


The in-between seasons of September-November and March-May can be the best! Surf in the morning at our front-yard Tropical left and right, with glassy conditions every morning and then go to Yoyos, Supers or Scars for a second surf.


Although Christmas , Jan and Feb are the best for the wave out the front and no wind and not a lot of crowd!


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 rodsSpearguns, and snorkling equipment free for our guests although we suggest to bring your own to avoid disspointment or limited material for all guests.


You can also hire our boat. The 28 foot speedboat can fit 15 people comfortably with Two 200 HP on the stern and fish radar. We will pass by Yoyos, Super Suck, Big Brother, Scar Reef, Little Bingin, and Donuts. We provide Spear-fishing, snorkling, and fishing gear. Drink Box with water and fruit.


Half day fishing trip including material $80 USD per person
