East coast super-right that guillotines mercilessly over a sharp slab of coral and pinwheels at mach one for hundreds of meters, before closing out on the inside dry reef. Unfortunately, Sanur Reef needs a serious swell to even begin breaking and wont get classic until it is well overhead, meaning Nusa Dua will be twice as big. These huge swell conditions are rarer in the rainy season window when it’s offshore all day, so consistency drops further. On smaller days at lower tides, it breaks up into funnelling walls and long shut-down sections, but with more swell and tide, barrel predictability and length of ride improves dramatically. The inside section is often unmakeable on all but the biggest tides and days of the year and even then it will claim many victims. To say it is crowded is an understatement and some localism is likely.
