Desert point, ekas.

The Gilis get good too, though not Lombok

Not Outside Ekas?

Don Dons in the bay would definitely be breaking. Mawi?

Thanks figured some of those breaks deep inside bays in the south coast may turn on some real quality when there is a bit of size

Will consider a run to Bangko x 2

Dons Dons is good when its bigger. I surfed it once by myself once for a few hours in early March at head and a half to double.

That was quite a few years ago, I guess it would be a shitfight now even in March

Looking at the latest forecast I don't think crowds of learners will be an issue even in the protected spots

Yeah I see what you mean
But some of those soft waves can take on a whole new personality under a very solid swell
I had one of my most memorable surfs at Aiport Rights on a mega swell day It did a great impression of DOH Nias
The one and only time I surfed the place in 35 years

Our swell has been downgraded Salty, they knocked about 40% off the kJs so it looks like a pleasant head and a half with the occasional double.
