This region of Sumbawa can get surf all year round. The peak swell period is from April to September. Late and early seasons, October to March, can offer perfect clean conditions with light winds. There are five world-class surfing waves situated in the same bay directly in front of the Aman Gati Hotel. The main wave, The Peak, has a left and a right-hand take off.
Lakey Peak: an intense hollow right and left-hand peak, with the left generally being longer, the right can fire on the proper swell direction. A frame with a guaranteed backdoor for those with the balls to pull in. Best at 5-8 foot that holds all sizes and goes off at mid-tides and the left can provide some deep barrels to surf at low tides if the swell is big enough.
Lakey Pipe: is on either side of The Peak, a popular wave amongst body boarders, and No Mans is suitable for the more extreme surfer.
The Beachy: only breaks in the lagoon with the big swells and is more suitable for the less experienced surfer.
Lakey Left: across the channel from the peak. With the right size swell and direction this normally sectiony wave can line up and provide deep, lined-up barrels.
Lakey Right: is a few hundred metres down the beach. A short, bowling right-hander that breaks into a deep water dent in the reef. Some fun barrels. Holds only to about 8 ft.
Periscopes: is a fun right-hander wave at the eastern end of a long reef that sticks way out into the bay, Periscopes can offer a high, tight barrel over a relatively safe reef platform and a clean exit into a channel. A short paddle out. Better at high tides with glassy or north (offshore) winds. Blown out by dry season trades. Holds only to about 8 ft. About a mile walk up the beach from the surf camp.
Nungas: is the big left across from Periscopes. Under 8 ft., the wave breaks down into several sections of 50 metre or so, one or all may be surfable. But at 8 ft. the sections start to connect, offering rides of 200 metres or more with flat spots, hot dog walls and full-on barrels all thrown into one ride. Best take-off spot is determined on an hourly basis. Can handle a crowd and swells as big as they come.
Cobblestones: is another popular wave within walking distance of the resort.
Wind: Varies From SE to NW depending on region and time of year
