Sumbawa Scar Reef Surfaris

SCAR REEF - YO YOs - SUPERSUCKS


The three main and most famous spots surfed on the west coast of Sumbawa are Scar Reef, Super Suck and Yo-Yo's. Although Leigh and Nina our hosts at Scar Reef know of a few more.

Scar Reef, just south of the Jelinggah Beach headland, is a great left-hander and hollow wave that is best at lower tides. Either side of low tide will cause this wave to break further down the line towards the jutting headland. Higher tides bring the wave closer to the inside and cause it to section considerably. Scar reef picks up plenty of swell depending on direction, but it is particularly good-and waves are hollow and superb-on a big south swell.

Super Suck , off the village of Malok about a half hour past the town of Taliwang, is the most famous and sought after wave on this rugged coast. When Super Suck is working, it is really working and will make your trip to Sumbawa more than worthwhile. Big walls of water break off a boil rock on the outside of the bay and suck up into a thick and heavy left that bowls and winds down the reef for a few hundred meters. The inside section of this reef gets really shallow.

Yo-Yo's, just south of Super Suck at Sekongkang Bay, is your best West Sumbawa bet when everything else is small. This beautiful bay offers two different spots. The best is about 400 meters from a towering cliff. It is a right, sometimes called The Hook, which gets really good and holds up to six feet of swell. This wave is fast and hollow and features shifting peaks. It breaks and is rideable on all tides except a dead-low one. The second wave here, located right up against the cliff is called The Wedge and can handle six to eight feet of swell before closing out. It consists of a shifty and mushy outside peak that winds into a fast and bowling inside section. April to October, tradewinds can blow Yo-Yo's out, so mornings are best.

UNFORTUNATELY OUR SCAR REEF PACKAGE IS NOT AVAILABLE AT THE MOMENT - we will update this page when we are back selling this product!!!!

SURFPOINTS:
Straight out the front is SCAR REEF is a long hollow left hand wave. It is best at lower tides. Either side of low tide will cause this wave to break further down the line towards the headland. Higher tides bring the wave closer to the inside and cause it to section, although it is still very much worth surfing. Scar Reef picks up plenty of swell depending on swell direction. This wave has a lot of power so be prepared for hold downs if you go over the falls.
Inside Scars or Little Bingin is more in the middle of the bay this wave is fun for all standards of surfers (except for beginners) it is a left and right hander that works best on mid and high tides. The right hander sometimes pitters out but when it is over 3 feet it is a fast wally wave that also barrels. The Left-hander is the pick with its barrel sections and heaps of wally faces to play on. It can be surfed from 2 foot to solid 6 feet. The bigger the swell the more intense the wave is. When Scar Reef is a solid 6 foot this will be 3 to 4 feet. Gets a bit shallow on low tide…
There is another right-hander on the western side of the bay called Phantoms, which needs a good swell and no wind. Also there are some other breaks down the coast before you get to Maluk. (definitely worth a visit)
SUPER SUCKS: This is the most famous and sought after wave on this rugged coast. It is however Sumbawa's most fickle surfing spot. When Supersuck is working however it is really working and will make your trip to Sumbawa more than worthwhile. Big walls of water break off a boil rock on the outside of the bay and that bowls and winds down the reef for a few hundred metres. The inside section of this reef gets really shallow and dangerous! Yes Supersuck has some of the thickest lips in all of Sumbawa. (need the booties) (be prepared for a few scratches)
YO-YOs: Just south of Supersuck is your best bet when everything else is small. This beautiful bay offers two different spots. The first is about 400 metres from a towering cliff. It is a right, sometimes called The Hook, which gets real good and holds up to six feet of swell. Every 20 minutes or so be ready for the sets, they will catch you out of position all the time. This wave is fast and hollow and features shifting peaks that, well, "yo-yo". Doesn’t handle much wind It breaks and is rideable on all tides except a dead-low one. The second wave here, located right up against the cliff is called The Wedge, and can handle six to eight feet of swell before closing out. It consists of a shifty and mushy outside peak that winds into fast and bowling inside section.
On the last day you will be transferred from the surfcamp at 10.00am to the airport in Lombok. Arriving back in Bali at 6pm. Where we will meet you and transfer you to your hotel or to the international terminal for your connecting flight
