I would miss sumbawa if i were you, lakeys always crowded and west sumbawa always crowded and both get a lot of shit winds.
I dont know what is is about west sumbawa but the place just doesnt get good offshore winds very often. The swells go right up the straight and even wrap into places that SHOULD be offshore
but are NOT. I think the trades ruin the swell before the swell even hits the reefs. Or it could be the mountains that change the winds around.
the place is setup just like the Bukit but the bukit is offshore almost everyday, not so with west sumbawa.
