More of a body boarders wave, this reef slab is a wide open (in and out) pit. Close to the shore and easily accessible. It’s certainly a quality wave but being so short is its downfall. Based just outside the town of Krui, it’s one of the few waves in the area that when it works can get crowded quite easily. It needs to be at least head high at Ujung Bocur before considering the journey north.
Krui Left is a super fun perfect barreling wave found in the town of Krui. It can be one of the finest waves in the area when it’s working. Although shallow, the paddle out is very easy and there isn’t a tricky inside section to deal with. Sadly it’s one of the more fickle waves in the region and only breaks a handful of times all season. Large south swells tend to roll past the bay missing it completely, leaving only swells with some west in them to offer a glimmer of lighting this wave up.
Krui Right is at the other end of the beach across from the left. It’s also a great wave but yet again is inconsistent. In fact it’s probably the most fickle wave in the region, so don’t expect to score this wave during your stay. Again, like the left, the paddle out is very easy and there isn’t a tricky inside section to deal with. Feel very blessed if you score this rarely surfed gem.
Leftovers is a heavy slab found to the south of The Peak. Although rarely crowded, a small pack of body boarders will usually dominate the line-up at this heavy reef break. Close to the shore, the wave is easily accessible. It’s certainly a quality wave but suited for advanced surfers only. The inside also gets shallow.
About 30 minutes north of Krui, this fun right hander delivers rides of around 100 meters in length. It’s most consistent between November and April as it’s off shore on a North West wind. Jenny’s offers a bit of everything - from decent barrel sections to big open faces. Unlike many of the areas breaks, this waves entry (although steep) is relatively easy. Once on the wave various sections are on offer - depending on the size of swell and its direction. The end section will always closeout – and can be pretty shallow but easily avoidable. There’s also a keyhole that guarantees a dry haired paddle out.
Not quite as heavy as its neighboring right hander – it’s still a very hollow wave. Certainly for advanced surfers and body boarders only. Handles huge swells up to double over head and bigger but probably best at 4-6 feet on the mid tide. It gets perfect – with grinding barrels on the take-off before peeling down the line for around 80 meters before closing out on the gnarly inside bowl. Jimmy’s left will certainly provide a beating from hell or the barrel of your life. Often wind affected due to its exposure to the trade wind. So arrive early.
Jimmy's is located to the very north of the regions known surf breaks. Resembling backdoor pipe, the wave is very consistent, very heavy, very fast & very perfect. Throwing as wide as the barrel is tall, this thick lipped right hander delivers absolute flawless tubes before closing out over razor sharp reef on the inside. If it was closer to the areas main waves (and camps) & you took away the sketchy inside section, this wave would be surfed a lot more. But as it stands it never is.
Located about 1 hour north of Krui in the Northern most part of the surf region, Honey Smacks is a favorite for boogie boarders and advanced surfers. Late take-offs guaranteed, this wedgey left hander will sling shot any takers into some of the thickest waves in the area. Often compared to mini Teahupo'o this is a body boarder’s heaven, offering reeling tubes from head high through to the biggest of swells that hit the coastline.
