Very long, hollow waves that almost always end in a barrel. It needs some swell though to really start working. Watch out for low tide sessions!! The inside breaks on shallow reef.
Voted "The Best Wave in the World" by Aussie Tracks magazine. But it is also one of the most inconsistent waves in the world, needing a mega swell. But if you're there on the right day...
Best wave in the area.

Great Surf Spot - I surfed here with my mates from Oz and we had a great time. Non stop shack sessions in the purest ocean waters. We scored some good shrubs from the locals to help our downtime chill sessions.

malaria - malaria is endemic in the region. numerous cases have been reported in Bali. If your staying on a boat and it's offshore do you think your safe? hehe
