Sumbawa Lakey Peak Surfaris
Central / South Sumbawa
LAKEY PEAK (HUU BEACH – Nearest township is Dompu)
There are 5 world class surfing waves situated in the same bay directly in front of LAKEY BEACH
The main wave 'The peak' has a left and a right hand take off.
Lakey Peak – some describe it as the Sumbawa Machine. An intense hollow right & lefthand peak, with the left generally being longer, the right can fire on the proper swell direction. An A frame set up with a guaranteed backdoor for those with the balls to pull in. Best at 5-8 foot that holds all sizes and goes off at mid-tides, and the left can provide some deep barrels to surfed at low tides if the swell is big enough. When it is 2 to 3 foot it is a lot of fun for all standards of surfers.
Lakey Pipe is on either side of 'The peak' a popular wave amongst the body boarders. This wave ducks and weaves towards a hollowing section. It is surfable from 2 - 6 foot. Although Best up to 5 feet and at mid tide
Cobblestones is another popular wave within walking distance of the hotels.
Nungas - Under 8’ the wave breaks down into several sections of 50 meters or so, one or all may be surfable. But at 8’ the sections start to connect offering rides of 200 meters or more, with flat spots, hot-dog walls, full-on barrels all thrown into one ride. Best take-off spot is determined on an hourly basis. Can handle a crowd and swells as big as they come.
Periscopes - around 1 kilometre from Nungas . This fun Righthander wave at the eastern end of a long reef that sticks way out into the bay, Periscopes can offer a high, tight barrel over a relatively safe reef platform, and a clean exit into a channel. A short paddle out . Better at high tides with glassy or N (offshore) winds. Blown out by dry season trades. Holds only to about 8’. About a 1.5 kilometre walk up the beach from your accommodation.
SURF ALL YEAR ROUND
The Peak Swell period is from April to September.
