EAT, SLEEP, SURF, REPEAT

If you are looking for waves, look no further, surfing in Nusa Lembongan offers something for everyone. No matter your level, there are countless “best session of my life” kinds of days waiting for you. Nusa Lembongan has a few different surf breaks spread along our picturesque white sandy shores.  Let us take you on a virtual tour of the best surf breaks in Lembongan and when to surf them.

CONDITIONS ARE EVERYTHING

The surrounding surf spots are incredibly tidal and condition dependant. At one moment, the ocean can resemble a lake, and the next it will look like something out of your favourite surfing magazine.
Strong currents are common around the higher tides, and extremely low tides will make most spots un-surfable. Be sure to take these factors into account before paddling out. If you are patient and choose the right window, you will score.

HOW DO I GET TO THE WAVES?

The surf is accessible by paddling, or alternatively catch a ride with a surf taxi or go with a surf school.

 

RESPECT THE LOCALS

The local surf crew on Lembongan are super experienced and know these waves like the back of their hands. They are friendly, they rip, and they will welcome you with open arms. No ma5er where we surf, the golden rule always applies; respect the locals. This is their home after all.

FROTHING! SO, WHERE SHOULD I SURF TODAY?

SHIPWRECKS

In the 70s a boat wrecked on the reef and gave the surf spot its name, Shipwrecks. A right-hander that breaks in deeper water that provides barrels and long drawn-out walls on its day. Shippies is geared towards the more experienced surfer and is primarily a shortboard wave. On smaller days, beginner surfers will find some fun, too. We recommend surfing at mid-tide on either side of the swing. If you are feeling unsure, check in with the local boys, they will provide you with friendly, solid advice.

RAZORS

Just left of Shippies is Razors. A left-hander that is perfect for beginner surfers looking to up-skill or take a lesson. Razors can be surfed on either side of the tide swing but is best avoided when it gets too low. Long, sectioney walls are on repeat, so there will be enough fun for everyone.
Remember to keep an eye out for the current that tends to creep in at a moment’s notice.

LACERATIONS

A natural wave pool, Lacerations will throw some of the most perfect right-hand barrels you have ever seen. Hollow, steep, long, and just plain epic! When the swell kicks up, Lacerations is best left for the more advanced surfers. Nestled above a sharp reef, the take-off at Lassos can be gnarly, but if you make it, you are in for the ride of a life time. Best surfed at mid-tide on either side of the swing
If spitting barrels is what you are looking for, then the lower it gets, the hollower it becomes.
A reef kiss from Lacerations is not uncommon for the dare-devils out there.

LESS GNARLY LACERATIONS

On the flip side, when conditions are friendlier and more manageable, Lacerations is perfect for a lesson or a fun free surf. The local surf schools will be happy to take you and provide a memorable surfing experience. Lacerations peels down the line and ensures long right hand rides, and perhaps even the odd left. The name is intimidating, but worry not, everyone is welcome at Lacerations. Match the conditions of the day with your surf level, and you will find some fun waves.

PLAYGROUNDS

A dreamy A-Frame located a short paddle away from Coconut Beach, Playgrounds is a surfer’s paradise. Split the peak with your mates and enjoy the breathtaking views of the limestone cliffs. On smaller days, Playgrounds can be enjoyed by any level of surfer. Having said that, when the swell turns up, Playgrounds is best enjoyed by those with more experience.

Higher tides bring about strong currents, so surfing Playgrounds at mid-tide is your best bet. Make sure to take your last wave before the reef starts to show. This is, after all, one of the sharpest and most lively reefs on the island.
Don’t let the name fool you.

MAHANA POINT

Just over the Yellow Bridge, Mahana Point is found on Nusa Ceningan Island. A left-hand point break that delivers long, faster walls. Due to its location, Mahana Point picks up a lot more swell, and can therefore be bigger and more tricky. The wave breaks beach-break style without a channel on either side. If Lembongan is flat, take your scooter over the bridge and you are likely to find a wave at Mahana Point.  It’s also a great spot for non-surfers, with a Warung and great viewing area to watch surf.

We hope this has inspired you to follow our mantra of eat, sleep, surf, repeat.

OH, THE PLACES YOU WILL GO

Manta Point, being the furthest, but the most breathtaking journey is where the famous reef Mantas spend their days. They dance in slow motion and put on performances, unlike anything you have ever seen. Snorkellers can get a piece of the action, too. Simply throw on your mask, snorkel, and fins, and watch the show from above.

Heading further north is where we find the majority of our drift diving sites. The coast is filled with majestic sloping reefs, countless marine creatures, and the ride of a life time. Dropping below the surface is where it all begins. Mild to moderate currents usher us along the reef as we take in a live-action natural masterpiece.

Lembongan Surf Team Competition 2021 – Series 1

Series #1 – 30th May 2021

Playground Surf Break, Nusa Lembongan

Here is a wrap-up of the Lembongan Surf Team Competition Series #1 for 2021, proudly organized in conjunction with the Indonesian Surfing League. It was a wonderful day seeing a total of 68 surfers compete across 3 divisions who were supported on the side lines by the local community.

The day saw good wave conditions, in the morning it started with consistent 2ft sets,  then in the afternoon it went up to 3 – 4ft and later increasing to 4-6ft.

The event started in the morning at 7.45am with round 1 of the Junior U/16 Boys Division, with good waves and good weather. In Round 1 of the Junior Division, there was lots of action and high scores obtained in several heats such as Miko Pebiana (6.45), Yoga Andika (5.43) and Un Jayantara who showed their talent in the waves.

It continued in the Master Division Round 1, where the waves started to get a little bigger and the currents began to be felt but it didn’t discourage our masters showing their skills.  At noon the sun was out and it was getting hot, the waves were slightly bigger, the contest committee decided to continue to the Open Division, the long-awaited action and Open Round 1 began.

In the first round we saw lots of action, including some great scores from Putra Hermawan (6.75) followed by his brother Agus Purnawan (6.23). It continued into round 2, the waves were getting bigger and the current stronger. In the second round the wave conditions were a little difficult because of the high tide and the waves were very bumpy and making it difficult for surfers who would compete in the second round, but at the end of the 2nd round, it was Agus Frimanto wearing a red shirt who managed to get the highest score (8.38).

Both the temperature and competition was heating up as we proceeded to the Quarter final where in the 3rd heat 3rd we saw some great waves and score total (16.21) from Agus Frimanto.

In the semi-final of the Open division, there was huge excitement when Jaka Satria  managed to get a barrel and the highest score of the day (9.75),  stopping Agus Frimanto in 5th place.

It was late afternoon and when we headed into the finals for the Junior, Master and Open divisions.

Starting with the  final of the Juniors, where the waves were big and with the tide going out. Lembongan Surf Team provided 2 life guards to maintain the safety and comfort of the junior surfers, as their average age was 13 years.

They all showed excellent sportsmanship with great skills for the following results:

Junior Division

1st  –  Arida Setiawan

2nd – Bagas

3rd –  Un Jayaantara

4th – Yoga Andika

In finals of the Masters  division  we saw (red) Lhaena, (white) Licek, (yellow) Cakil and (blue) Apri, the competition was quite fierce at the beginning as the wave conditions were improving and the current was starting to disappear, but all surfers only got an average score of between 2 points – 3.20 points.

Then in the last 7 minutes, the yellow surfer managed to make the highest score, it was (5.80) and took him to the winners podium.

The Open Division was next,  where the scores were very close:

1st – Tia Nustawan (13.53)
