Boat from Benoa Harbour of Sanur to Nusa Lembongan. Reef 100m from Bounty Cruises and Bali Hai Cruises pontoons.

If staying at the places in the cliff overlooking the break, it's a short (5 min) paddle out to this spot. Follow the rope leading out, it makes it easier to guage the channel! Paddle around the right, if you try to paddle acroos the left and then around, your arms will give up on you before you start.

 Additional Information

High tide allows right to break through about 80 metres. As tide drops, right sections and left starts to barrel. If you're not quite up to the hidings the other spots on Nusa Lembongan can dish out, check out this spot.

Can surf this spot mid to low, but be warned, although considered a beginners wave for lembonga, it's still a classic indo break-sharp, shallow and fast for the intermediate. It's a beautiful spot and well worth surfing even f you can handle shippys and lacerations, the wall is well worth a punt!

Pretty freaky sitting in the lineup with huge catamarans and pontoons only 100 metres away. Great atmosphere.

General

Love it. The day photos were taken was 5 foot at playgrounds, and about 10 foot at Shipwrecks (fairly serious). Daily Tourists from Bali all over the place snorkelling etc. between 10am and 3pm. They are however well out of the way and never near the line up. watch out for rookie australians thinking they own the line up. Do't be afraid to give a loud shout if you have priority but make sure you take the wave, other's willbe pissed if you leave it after a call.

How is this break for Mals? - I'm an experienced longboarder (8"-9" boards) and a friend is planning a trip to Lembongan in Feb.

How is this wave for longboards / Mals?

I'm goofy and it says here that the left goes into the current and is less reefy than the right, but I don't want to surf out of my league or in a shortboard-only place.

I respect the locality wherever I go, if this is surfable I'll go if not there are always other places.

Playgrounds - What swell does this work best on? are there gonna be waves with SW 1.5 m?

By Steve , 26-10-2008

Nusa Lembogan - Surfed here in 1980 and have not been back since,though was Bali in August for first time since.Shipwrecks was great and good surfs at playgrounds-less crowded then of course and no accomadation just stayed in village.
Does anyone have more info on Chinnanigans and is there any waves on Nusa Ceningan down the southern end.Looking at going back next year ,now on a performance long board but still like a good size fast wave being used to the waves in SW Australia.
