 Access

Its a long 1 hour or more walk from the G-Land surf camps, you need to get a ride and ask where it is, as it is hard to find if you don't know exactly where it is.

Walk down the truck path for about 30 minutes, the bridges have names, when you see "Jembatan Gebang" on one of them, you're close, there are 2 more big bridges after that one, after the 2nd big bridge after the Gebang bridge, look for the path to your left.

Alternatively, go to Bobby's Surf Camp, for 50000 Rupiah (6 USD) they will take you and your mates to Tigers

 Additional Information

Its an easy, perfect, mellow, right hand barrel from 2 to 4 feet breaking over about 70m, that can also break left. The wipeouts are soft and the wave is whackable. Only works a few hours either side of high tide, as the reef gets exposed on low tide. Good soft alternative to G-Land, it will only be about half the size of the point, depending on swell direction, although, if the point is small (head high) then tigers is also the same size. Doesn't handle more than about 4 feet, or 5 people in the water, but there are other good left and right reef breaks right next to it. Look to the right of the main peak and you'll see another right.

Atmosphere

Mellow barrel, and it's a right at G-Land! Soft and fun, worth a look on big days and when the point is too crowded. Even if there are surfers already on it, there are other lefts and rights right next to it.

General

Great chill-out spot with your mates.

When you're sick of eating it at the G-Land point, looking for somewhere to soulsurf by yourself or just want to surf a right hander, this is a good wave, I surfed it one day by myself for 3 hours, high tide only.

Its just like V-land - It's a super fun wave when g land is stacking. Head down and spend the dropping high tide here. bring some snacks and make it a day. It has a mellow take off and a nice double up on the inside a lot like V land to me.

The Peak - Yes, Ozsurfer, I too would give this spot 3 stars. When the crowd at G-land got hectic (or I was just hard-up to surf rights), i'd make the eerie hour-long hike thru the jungle and surfed this fun peak with anywhere from 1-12 other people out. Ripable rights & lefts (the rights were longer) with the occasional barrel section. Seemed to work fine from waist high to a few feet overhead. Mid to high tide... less makeable at lower tide plus the reef becomes extremely shallow (the coral is quite jagged) before you know it. Local kids surf here and are tolerant of visitors... if you decide to paddle out, be sure to show then respect!

Not bad at all - Actually I'd give this wave three stars, its a pretty good barrel, not unlike a reverse Bingin. Surf it at high tide only!
