About The Hole

Scary left mincing machine that churns out lifetime best barrels and reef rash floggings in equal measure. Located on the west side of tiny Saumang Island and tucked behind the southern tip of Pagai Selatan, The Hole needs very specific conditions to make it safe enough to surf. Swell needs to be very S just to get in and winds need to be NE-E or non-existent, while high tide moves the take-off to a shallower section up the reef. The inside bowl is the real danger and sets turn inside-out over this coral slab, entombing all but the best. It’s a long way down (best travelled on the backside), but with high risks come high rewards. Mere mortals should try Disco’s off the tip of the next island west.
