Park your car at the edge of the road then walk through the padi field. Couple of Warungs to stash your stuff. Plenty of peaks available. You'll sometimes find Rizal, an Indonesian pro in the line up during the wet season.
There are actually two breaks here. On the right is the beach break which is a fast wave so you need to get up quick but is a lot of fun.
On the left is the bowl. It's a bowl shaped reef that make the wave refract in the shape mentioned. Paddling out of the bowl after a wave or a wipe can be a wierd experiece as it looks like the waves are closing in on you. The Japanese who made it popular called is 'secrets', although it goes by the local name of Padang Galak
Black sand beach works best in the wet season when Kuta, etc. are onshore. The sand is *really* hot. Offers some barrels to get slotted in. Japanese infestaion can sometimes be a problem.
It's okay.... suits all abilities.

Summer of '03 - Surfed here a couple of times during the summer of 2003; it sucked. Your home beach break is probably better. I suppose it's a good wave if you want something mellow and you have nothhing better to do. You might even consider going for the drive as it can be quite scenic.
