Surfing in Lombok is one of the key reasons the island has become so popular in recent years, crystal clear water, excellent swell and uncrowded breaks for all levels of surfers.
There are too many locations to list in Lombok to serve however the majority of waves are located on the southern and south western side of the island with some waves also located in the north around Sengiggi and Gili Trawangan.
The south boasts numerous breaks close by to the town of Kuta including Air Guling, Seger, Tanjung Ann, Mawi and Gerupuk. Further along the coast you have countless waves of a varying degrees of difficulty all the way up to the world-class wave of Dessert Point.
While Dessert Point is often accessed via boat I said the other waves in Lombok are easily accessible by car or bike although some require a bit of a drive but you’re rewarded by often empty conditions.
In Lombok you can surf all year round and there are many different options from beach breaks to point brakes that work in all conditions we advise just checking magic seaweed before you go out.
Intermediate to expert surfers the wet season or rainy season is generate the best time to visit between October and April however conditions are great all year round we just need to seek it out.
The dry season has a lot to offer; this is when waves like Mawi and Dessert Point work best. These spots are blessed with offshore winds and a bigger swell in the dry season, which will deliver some nice hollow barrels.
If you aren’t looking for barrels, you can surf the more protected spots in Ekas, Gerupuk, and Tanjung Aan on the less windy days.
There are many surf camps and surf teachers around Kuta and the wider area and the team at Villa Amani Will happily arrange for you to connect with a variety of operators and make your choice. Usually everything you need is included in the fee such as board rental, transport and any additional fees.
