Surfing in Lombok

best surf in Kuta Lombok

Surfing in Lombok has become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks to key factors like crystal-clear water, excellent swells, and uncrowded breaks catering to surfers of all levels.

While it’s not possible to list every location in Lombok, the majority of waves can be found on the island’s southern and southwestern shores.

Some fantastic waves are also present in the north around Sengiggi and Gili Trawangan, though their availability depends on conditions and swells. The southern region, especially near the town of Kuta, boasts numerous beaches such as Air Guling, Seger, Tanjung Ann, Mawi, and Gerupuk. Progressing along the coastline, you’ll encounter countless waves of varying difficulty levels, culminating in the world-class wave at Dessert Point. While accessing Dessert Point often requires a boat, other waves in Lombok are easily reachable by car or bike. Although some spots necessitate a bit of a drive, the reward is often the presence of uncrowded conditions.

Lombok’s Optimal Surfing Season

Lombok offers year-round surfing opportunities, with diverse options including beach breaks and point breaks suitable for all conditions. We suggest consulting magic seaweed before heading out.

For intermediate to expert surfers, the wet or rainy season (October to April) is generally ideal, although favorable conditions persist throughout the year, requiring a bit of exploration.

The dry season provides its own attractions; this is when spots like Mawi and Dessert Point shine brightest. These locations benefit from offshore winds and larger swells during the dry season, creating splendid hollow barrels. If you’re not chasing barrels, you can enjoy the more sheltered spots in Ekas, Gerupuk, and Tanjung Aan during the less windy days.

Numerous surf camps and instructors are available around Kuta and the broader area. The Villa Amani team is more than willing to help you connect with various operators, providing options that often include board rental, transport, and additional fees.
