The perfect place to learn to surf in Lombok

Many boats were docked up on the shore with locals preparing fresh fish. As we arrived and the tourists were out in full swing.

The steady waves continued to roll in and we sat and watched for a while as first timers practised and practised standing up on their boards. The locals seemed super friendly and patient when helping the novice surfers so if you’re looking to learn to surf in Lombok we’re guessing this is one of the best places to try.

There are plenty of beach shacks and bamboo chairs sprawled out along the beach for guests to relax on and grab lunch before getting back out into the waves.
