The main surf season runs from April to November the Roaring Forties send plenty of 2-4m swells through April-November (high season). The SSW direction is perfect for our SW facing area. Ujung Bocur our break out front is the regions longest and best left handed reef break. It ranges from heavy dredging barrels to long down the line carveable performance walls with rides in excess of 200m. The sheer length of our wave handles any crowd well. Ujung Bocur is super consistent and handles large swells well.
Water temperature all year round is about 28.5 degrees so no need for wet suits.
December-March is our off season. It’s way less crowded and cheaper. If you don’t mind cruising around you will always find a nice wave within 30 minutes of our resort
There’s a heap of quality breaks close by. Mandiri Beach is 15 minutes north of us and on it’s day it goes off left and right but best to get there early before the wind kicks in. A further 10 minutes past Mandiri Beach is Krui Left, Krui Right and The Peak. if it’s too big out front chances are that Krui will be perfect.About an hour past Krui is Jenny’s Right, Honeysmacks and Jimmy’s. These are pretty serious waves with some nice barrel sections and carveable walls. Always best to check with us before going up in case it ain’t pumping. Just south of the camp about 15 minutes is Way Jambu or as we call it Sumatran Pipe. This is a gnarly monster with some of the best barrels in Indo, it’s not for the feint hearted. Bali village is just past Way Jambu and is a nice fun with wave particularly popular with body boarders.
Whatever you surf, longboards, body boards, SUP’s or performance boards you will always score a good session here.
