Our boat is parked right in front in a natural harbour accessible even on the lowest tides, makes access to the waves quick and easy. We do our morning surf check over a freshly brewed coffee, we can see all the way from Besi Alu down to Sukimamas as we decide where to surf. We are centrally located between the surf breaks on the main land and outer islands.
The main breaks are show with the photos, however others are also great depending on the surf level and conditions as listed below.
OESELI surf break
RILIAU surf break
Many other surf spots...
Besi Alu surf break
The main wave- ever popular wave is very consistant and does cater for a wide range of surfing abilities, is often very busy and can tend be a bit soft. The wave was named Besi Alu by local fishermen long before it was ever surfed, it means metal grinder and refers to noise the wave makes as it rolls down the reef. Sometimes is referred to as Tland, but out of respect we still use the local name.
BOA surf break
Great right hand wave, not good in strong trade wind.
Sukimamas (Sakunamon) surf break
Bommie surf break
Located in the main harbour breaks right and left needs a bigger swell.
