6 day trip Lombok or West Sumbawa?

Just wanting to hear people's thoughts on whether it's a better use of time to stay in Lombok rather than West Sumbawa for 6/7 day trip? We're in Bali this April but have done that so many times we're looking to go somewhere else but don't have heaps of time. I like a nice bowly wave with a not too gnarly take off - really love Kuta reef, shipwrecks, keramas style waves but trying to escape the crowds. Have heard good things about Lombok but mainly from friends who longboard. West Sumbawa looks great but may not be worth the effort for what will amount to only about 6 days at camp. Your input is appreciated!



RE: 6 day trip Lombok or West Sumbawa?

Bali is the best, lombok and west sumbawa strog wind, mainly on shore. Been there the last 3  weeks.
I just heard stories about secret waves, every wave i saw in indo was mainly with 15-20 people, just short periods of 5 people and more of 20++.
I think escapeing the crowds is an illusion, but I might be a kook.
