When you drive around 20 minutes from Kuta, as you pass mountains, you can see the Air Goling below your eyes. On the left and right reef of the bay are the breaking points, left is goofy waves, and right is regular ones. Fast waves come in the low tide and barrels of wave wind in the inside. In the daytime, morning is the target as waves break on shore! The size is one size bigger than Kuta and the best one is 8 feet wide. When waves get bigger, the current also gets stronger so care should be taken.

It is the closest point from Kuta’s point. In Segar Bay, powerful break can be seen. Although waves are fast, you can do fun surfing when you take off. As the wind blows all day, morning and evening are the target when the wind is comparatively weak. The basic is regular break but you can also ride goofy if it is a little. When the tide becomes lower, dead coral reef appears, and reef holes are densely populated with sea urchins so care should be taken. Reef boots are a must.

The break points are the outside which is located in front of the left cape and 2 spots inside of the bay. From Kuta it takes 15 minutes to get to Tanjun Aan. The surface, not much influenced by the wind, is beautiful. The bottom is the reef and the size is 3-4 feet. High tact is the target. The outside that matches the west wind is a perfect break point that has power and is hollow. The inside that matches the north wind makes riding possible at least 100m once you get a light break. You do not have to worry about the current so it is a safe point even for beginners and paddling out from the shore is possible. If you get into the swing of things, you can see the beautiful white sand beach and powerful hollow waves.

Mawun

Over the mountain, it takes 20 minutes by car from Kuta town. It is a beautiful point where the cobalt blue sea and white sand beach are seen. The best size is 3-4 feet. Both high tide and low tide are OK. In the low tide, waves gets shallow, and the break gets faster. When the size is small, there is no current so it is possible for beginners to paddle out safely. In the wet season, light regular waves get as much as 10 feet high. Even in the dry season the south east wind makes left goofy break possible.

Gerupuk

From Kuta town driving 20 minutes by car will take you to Gerupuk fishing village. In the sea you can see lobster breeding grounds. In Gurupuk, there are 5 break points which have various traits in the bay. In all seasons swell surfing is possible.

  • Inside: Throughout the year surfing is possible. The wave is mellow, easy to ride on, and long riding is possible. You can ride both regular and goofy waves. But if the side exceeds the head, only regular ones will do and barrels of waves wind. The best ones are 6-8 feet. If the wave is small, it is okay even for beginner.
  • Kame: Throughout the year surfing is possible. You can ride both regular and goofy waves but it is 1 size smaller than in the inside. The wave is faster.
  • Kodomo point: The wave breaks faster. It is 1 size smaller than at Kame.
  • Outside: It is a point in front of sharp cliffs. Only regular but long ride is possible. At this point, it is windy which is likely to make conditions irregular but on the right side fairly long ride possible. In the wet season, offshore and high tide are the best. In the low tide, the reef is shallow so it would be better not to do. There are speed, power and barrel so beginners are forbidden. The best size is 8 feet. The outside and left is super shallow and winding, so only experts are allowed.

Desert Point

The most famous place is located in the west of the island, commonly called Desert Point. When conditions gets better, it features a long wave that equals to Uluwatu and G land waves. The excellent super left counted among the leading waves in the world exists here and you can enjoy the fastest and longest left. Only experts can challenge this point. Still, the wave is unlikely to get stable. The wave begin to break only when grand swell gets in, and it disappears the moment the high tide comes. The wave is rapidly accelerated when it moves from take-off to shallow reefs. When the wave goes to the inside, it is surrounded by barrels and finally the dry reefappears. When the size gets bigger the peak of current also gets pretty stronger so you should be alert to this. This is a distant point to such an extent that it takes a whole day to go from Kuta by car.

Mawi

・Swell/Southwest・Best Season/Dry season
・Lavel/中~上級者

By car, it takes 30 minutes from Kuta. It is a point where the beautiful beach lies. Blake point is on the left side of the bay. When the size is small, you can ride both the right and the left. When the size gets bigger, a strong left break occurs, and the quiet sea changes to powerful and fast waves. If so, the current gets fairly stronger and even intermediate and advances surfers suffer, so it is dangerous. Beginners are not allowed to come in!

It takes around 1 hour by riding the car and the boat from Kuta. You ride the boat from the west coast town Awan and go over to Ekas. Ekas is the biggest southern coast and the biggest bay Ekas Bay exists. Inside the bay, there are two breakpoints; inside and outside. Low tide is the best in inside. In the mellow wave there, left and right breaks can happen. In outside, only high tideexists. Only the powerful left explodes, and the size gets 9-10 feet so beginners are forbidden to go in. This is a short trip of some degree from Kuta. There are still attractive waves waiting for you in the primitive land of Lombok.
