tip local people in order not to have things stolen from car and go on the beach...very very very strong riptide on the right between line up and entry channel.If you get caught don t swim( too strong and dont panic)and wait till you are out of it
It is one of the most beautiful and enchanting bay of indonesia.Really a dream land!!!Since it is isolated, pay attention not to hurt yourself: waves can be very powerful, with long hold downs.Once i saw a tiger shark in the water, but fishermen say it is exceptional
Very good hollow left (sometimes it is a A frame, but only below 3-4 feet)wuith a terific late take off, a manoeuver section and a final tube...worth the 45 min drive from Kuta-Lombok

RIP - Sad to read this here, was looking forward to seeing Michael again.

Michael - I knew him as michael, not Mick. He may have been called Mick for short but not that I ever heard. He was a good bloke who liked the local people and was generous to them. We surfed some good sessions at Mawi and Outside Ekas. IYes, he will be missed.

met him sept 08 - so sad to hear about Mick-he was such a great australian escaping the Bali madness and yes I met him sitting under the hut at Mawi.He pushed me to go out alone on a pretty large day- we had lunch later in an amazing cliff cafe overlooking Kuta bay-he was 47 I think? rip.
