Way Jambu (Sumatran Pipeline)

A big, heavy and radical surfbreak. For the experienced surfer who wants a challenge. Fast and gnarly with a down the line barrel and is for those looking to get big, heavy and epic tubes. About 15 minutes by motor bike from Lovina Krui Surf, this is the best quality wave in the area.

Mandiri

A punchy, peaky beach break that turns on when everywhere else is flat.  Best surfed Feb to May when off-shore winds prevail, November to January can also be good. Expect lots of peaks and the opportunity to surf without your booties. From 1 to 1.2 mtrs it can be fun, 1.8+ mtrs  and it’s a heavy spitting barrel.

Krui Left

A perfect short rampy surfbreak with a nice tube ride. Best when the swell is massive everywhere else. Holds a flawless 2-6 ft. Really fun wave suitable for beginner to advance. Small take-off zone which can’t handle a crowd.

Jimmy’s Right

A fantastic, heavy and brutal waves. Best surf on high tide when there is a lot of swell. Book a driver or ride a motorbike for 2 hours to get there. It s a very deep barrel that holds 1.2 – 4 mtrs and is for the experienced surfer only. The end section is so scary it should only be surfed on high tide. Also has a left hander for the adventurous.
