Maluk Bay is the home of Super Suck, which continues the West Sumbawa pattern of a deep, cliff-lined bay, waiting for a bigger SW-W swell to show it’s world-class colours. The name says it all, especially at low tide, which is usually only surfed by bodyboarders or the very best tube technicians and depth is measured in inches. Take-offs are beyond critical and require an angled, straight into the barrel approach, which briefly lets up before increasing speed towards the inevitable straight reef shut-down. A resort and some cheap losmens hold the bulk of the keen, patient crowd, bolstered by boats descending when this fickle wave finally fires. Crowded and intense.
