Lacerations

Lacerations



Hard core right with excellent, wide open tube time on offer as the tide floods the sharp, shallow reef. It’s a pitching, air-drop entry from the peak into a straight barrel section then a further sucky bowl as it approaches the channel marked by floating mooring lines that litter the bay.

Not easy, not long and not empty but it’s more challenging than neighbouring Shipwrecks and Playgrounds. Occasionally the lefts are makeable and there are a few more, hollow, ridiculously shallow sections of reef nearby.

A sheltered reef break that has inconsistent surf and between May and October (dry season) is the optimum time of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the east southeast. Most of the surf comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. A right hand reef break, it’s best enjoyed around high tide.

get used to the rip.

hold your line, dont bail because people often get deep,lose hope, and then come out.

watch out for the spiky fish traps-manmade danger. Atmosphere can get like reverse padang.except the swell comes from nowhere- its a relatively flat ocean and sudeenly your stuck inside of a 6 ft plus wall General its not for anyone who isnt a confident right hand tube rider.pity it gets crowded.

it can make it worth going to lombongan.
