About Balangan

Mirage-like left spinner that is often a sectiony close-out, depending on swell direction and tide height. More south in the swell may make it a bit peaky and parallel the reef more, but the real deal starts at overhead to double on a SW-WSW and 0.4-1.4m tide co-efficient. First peak in front of the huge cave and undercut headland lets you in before having to race the speeding wall/tube down to the middle of the bay where the next pack are dropping into swinger sets and the wave that just outpaced you. Intermediates will deal with small swells, experts will charge the big days. Beautiful bay that is still managing to dodge major development.
