Offshore righthand supermarket with a confusing amount of aisles to go shopping in. All available swell is sucked into the entrance of the deep Lombok Strait and bent onto this 2km curve of coral reef. Unlike other Bukit set-ups, it focuses into a vast array of shifting peaks, hitting different lumps of the reef and drawing up into powerful, heavy-lipped bowls and long sections of speed carve walls. At size, the drops get serious and thick, while unpredictable sections add to the sense of roulette – eventually you will get one on the head. It rarely links up into a super-long ride, but the paddle back out always seems longer against the background drift north and if you try the zippy, open lefts on the far inside section, prepare to be punished paddling back out. Wet season all day staple and dry season sneaky early. Conserve your strength and pay for a return boat ride out there.
