 Additional Information

This spot is called sectrets by the local boys who are more than welcoming to travelling surfers! (Cheers for screwing me over on arak and mushrooms once again ade!)I've surfed it twice in the last 4 years and it picks up more swell than you'd expect. The take off spot on the outside point is fairly easy, but it quickly jacks up to produce long and hollow walls. It breaks over a shallow reef for a long and fast ride. Its fun up to double overhead with long tube rides, but over that it becomes one serious wave that walls and walls and walls. Good luck.

Atmosphere

The local boys are a trip. I've never met a more welcoming set of guys. They actually pull off waves that are so blatantly theirs to watch you surf! I know a few guys in Kuta Bali that wouldnt do that! The spot itself is a little fickle, but when it starts breaking it really cranks. Its just a long wall that produces flawless barrells and when its going, everybody has a smile on their face! A word of warning though, i got caught by a rogue 15 foot set from a typhoon swell last summer which appeared from nowhere and nearly made me shark food. This is quite a ledgey reef and when the swell starts getting above double overhead, they jack up from nowhere. However, for those kamikazis out there, you'll be glad to know that at a bigger size, it still broke completely flawlessly.

General

In a land of left handers, this place is a refreshing change. The locals are cool, the atmosphere on the island is horizontal and the break, if a little fickle is well worth checking out. People doubt this spot, which is good because it keeps the crowds down. If you ask me its their loss! If you like your rights, its not such a bad thing to give up 7 meter desert point to 5 meter secret point!

- Nice high tide morning session.  Long wave but slow and soft today - tough to get enough speed to stay ahead of the whitewater.  Lined up with the red flags on shore and more or less the tower on Gili Meno.  Chill, fun crowd.

- "why do you think it's called secrets? - You found a wave with no crowd and friendly locals. What do you do? You put it on an international web site. When you go back to GT in five years and find it packed with ego-tripping surfers and the locals are no longer so friendly you can point the finger of blame squarly at yourself."


just got back... Ah, the truth hurts!

Nice place for onshore surf - Went there for a week in April – only surfed once. Most of the swell is blocked by the Bali and Lombok Islands (obviously) and the SE trade winds are directly onshore. That said it was very pretty with volcanoes around and generally a pretty chilled vibe on the island. Not really a place for experienced surfers to get waves in the on season – Barrel Nazis and Shedders time would be better spent surfing offshore waves somewhere else on Lombok.

Good Island - Just back from Indo. Was on honeymoon and went to Gilli T for some quality time with the wife. Didnt expect to get waves but there were a couple of days of shoulder high on the sets.Not somewhere to head on a dedicated surf trip but if you are travelling with a chick or want to party a bit it is a good stop off point. there are plenty of boards for hire although most quite heavily used. so you dont need to trawl your on stick over on the off chance there will be waves.Very hard to make on your back hand especially if your pretty crap like me.Still a good place to spend time and plenty of snorkling,diving and drinking to be done if you dont score waves.Have fun
