Ariks is located at the end of the same reef where Iceland and Ombak Tidur breaks. This surf spot requires a large SW-W swell in order to break properly. When its big creates a wide barrel on take off and another one before it's time to kick out. When its small it can have ripable waves but can get shallow especially at low tide. Be careful with the exposed coral heads.
