About Gunturs

On the other side of the bay is Gunturs/Joy Stick a shorter right that’s comparatively playful when small, but morphs into a seriously challenging, take-off barrel, linking into a hollow, shallow end section when overhead swells hit. This is one of the most consistent waves in the area, working on all swells and tides and improves with the push. Bay of Plenty is versatile in NW-SE winds, so if the lefts are wind-affected, the right will usually be clean. The entire bay needs SW swells to get between Nias and Bangkaru - Treasure Island can have 6ft of South swell when the Bay is flat.
