Park the car right at the beach for a small fee (IDR 25,000). A 200 metre stretch of sandy beach with a rock wall on the southern end and reef on the northern end. Breaks best on a chart swell of 2.5 SW and higher - the more West the better. Sand banks shift with the seasonal tidal flows but can produce lefts of the rock wall, rights and lefts from a centre bank, or rights off a bank on the northern end of the beach. very suseptable to tides - can work really well off banks for 1 hour and then get too full on a highish tide or close out on low tide with a big swell. Tends to close out on a decent swell. Best on 2 to 3 m of chart swell on the right tide - fun waves. Can get quite heavy rips.
Great atmosphere. Locals are friendly and welcoming - most serious locals tend to surf Pasauran reef if the swell is up. Jambu is often a good option if Pasauran is blown out, too heavy or closing out.
As far as Indonesian surf locations go, Jambu is not going to make the headlines. This is a laid back location with a fun wave on a good day.

... - Hej!
I will move to Cilegon in August to work there for 6month. I was surfing on Bali twice and want to improve my surf and buy a board. Maybe anybody can help me... :)
