Ombak Tujuh Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

Ombak Tujuh translates as Seven Waves and is definitely the big wave spot, capable of holding swells up to 20ft (7m). The coral ledge protrudes into deep water, forcing the waves to jack up suddenly, making for elevator drops, right by the cliffs. Big wave experts only as the power and deepwater hold downs are serious, keeping crowds thin on big days. Needs a big swell to perform and longer pintails are a good idea.

Surprisingly consistent and rarely crowded, unless charter boats appear.
