There is almost always some kind of surf at Yo-Yo's. If the swell is small, all the boats will end up at this spot. It's fun from waist high to a couple feet overhead. If the swell is big then head to Scar Reef or Super Sucks for big, heavy tubes.
Fun wave. Not anywhere near world class, but if you're on a trip to Sumbawa, then it's worth checking out, especially if the other places are flat.
Yo yo's will pick up about any swell direction.

Yoyos - been in Sumbawa at yoyos hotel,stayed in the surf camp for a week very clean with Air con tv, great early morning surf until about 10am at yoyos. short drive to super sucks and scars, there was a few other surfers around that i could tag along with. great chefs and great western food, wood fired pizza at the restarant and freindly staff. I suggest bringing a car or bike from Bali or Lombok makes life easier to get around. Roads are good all the way there.

Maluk Info - I was there last June for 2 weeks...Maluk (where supersuck is) is quite busy with the mine...a fair few ex-pat Aussie, American, Brit miners around. Accomodation costs 40,000 to 200,000 depending, cheapest places are in the side roads near the beach. Only a couple of bars to drink in so you tend to meet a lot of boat trip surfers who come ashore to get hookers.Sekongkang, about 20 mins by motorbike south of Maluk, is where Yo-Yo's is...two places to stay: a hotel (nice bungalow for 2-4 people for 100,000 per night ish or AC rooms for about 185,000) and a hometay place called Rantung Inn (other end of the beach from the hotel, rooms 40,000- really nice owners and always quiet, I was the only person there!) You need a mosquito net as all places don't have them. The beach is really nice and you'll be lucky if there are other people there- in 2 weeks I met 3 other surfers who were on land.There is a really nice hotel near the new airstrip (Tropical Airstrip- I think Merpati fly there) called The Tropical Beach Inn or something...this is about 10 mins further south, close to the turn off in the road to the mine (there are good retaurants and more bars at the mine entrance). There is supposed to be a wave here but it looked shit when I was there.If you go overland and stay here you will need a bike to get around, unless you just stay at Yo-Yo's and are happy surfing there.I went overland from Bali by bike...you can get here in a day if you leave Bali early and drive non-stop....definately the cheapest way to do it (I got to Lakeys for around 120,000Rp including overnight stay in Sumbawa Besar. If you get the 8am ferry from Bali to Lombok you can ride across Lombok, get on the other ferry to Sumbawa and get to Sumbawa Besar by 11pm that night. Lakeys is another 7hrs.) It's a really good way to do it if you've got plenty of time but you need an international driving license or you have to bride the cops at the ferry ports. Really nice country side on the way and small villages that hardly any tourists must go to.
