Lombok 4 Beginners

« on: March 30 2011 06:03:00 »

Taking a trip to Lombok with my family. Any recommendations for places where we won't get pounded with over head swell, knarly reefs, beefy locals or sun burnt kooks? Does such a place exist, i dont know...but I hope! We all know how to surf but the kids are young, so mellow swell is ideal.

Cheers

Kuta seems like a lot of the breaks are pretty far off shore and on some nasty reefs. Anyone have knowledge of beach breaks in the area?

Try Sengiggi, cool mellow longboard waves.

I'm looking for the same. I have an 8 year old boy that will surf 3 footers no worries. Kuta Lombok sounds good. I first surfed there in 1987. I'll bet things have changed somewhat

Not far from Kuta lombok, Grupuk bay, has heaps of mellow easy peeling options peeling over mellow reef/sea grass bottom, perfect for young groms, never gets big.

Do a search with Grupuk lombok on youtube to see vids.

Great. Thanks for all the feedback. I've heard good things about about that spot.
