The Surf Break View at The Deck Café & Bar

We are incredibly fortunate at The Deck Café & Bar to have the unparalleled view that we do on Nusa Lembongan. From sunrise to sunset, we look over the Badung Straight to the dramatic (and some say magical!) Mount Agung. However, between us and the mainland Bali lies one of the other best views that catch visitors being mesmerized for hours during the day, and that is the view of the surf breaks on Nusa Lembongan. From experienced surfers scoping out their waves to inexperienced surfers loving the entertainment, to the daydreamers hoping one day to get out there too, the local surf breaks give hours of sit-back-and-relax viewing pleasure. The closest break to us, you will find a good spot for the surfers just getting their feet wet called Playgrounds. Next you will see Lacerations, that when the surf picks up you get to see the most experienced surfers catching the waves. Just past Lacerations is Muntigs/No Mans, named No Mans, as quite often you can see it and all it’s mighty without anyone on it. There is a reason for this. It can hold extremely big swells, up to 12ft plus. It is the right hander in the middle of the long reef that runs between Razors and Lacerations. Usually not ride able until it reaches 8ft, this wave packs as big a punch as it looks. Razors, this is one for the goofy footers. It is a fast running left on the south side of the channel opposite Shipwrecks. This is a very shallow, fast tubing wave and is best suited to experts if it is over 4ft. Aptly named Razors due to its very sharp reef and shallow water you don’t want to hit the bottom out here. Finally is Shipwrecks, one of the islands most famous surf breaks, this is the right hander you can see at the north end of the island. Best at 3-4ft this wave provides a fun ride for the intermediate to expert surfer.

Now that you know the local surf break lingo, you can chat up the others sipping on your delicious freshly-crafted cocktails at The Deck Café & Bar and either stop in after your day riding the waves, or dreaming to one day make it out there! Be our surf guest.
