About Scar Reef

Scar Reef is the main attraction in West Sumbawa, offering multiple barrel opportunities for advanced surfers willing to take a risk with possibly the sharpest reef in Indo. It starts off fast with a throwing take-off, then constant tongues of the lip flick out to swallow you as a series of backdoor sections that demand high speed and clear positioning to thread the wave to the sketchy inside closeout. Its’ personality changes constantly as low tide madness becomes perfect mid-tide bowls, before giving way to fast sloping walls and envelopes at high. Can pick up quickly without warning, sometimes bringing cool, deep water from the channel and will handle beyond double overhead.
