This is your wave out front if you stay at Pinnacles Lodge – a super user-friendly right hander just a paddle out from your villa. Great for longboarders too.
Is the go-to wave in the southern area of the Telos because of its consistency and its appeal to all level of surfers. Actually a series of 4 right hand point reefs. Outer Monkeys gets all the swell, big wall and hollow inside section. New School can be super fun in a mid sized swell, Coffins is fast barrel from take off before racing down the line, clean exits are rare and finally Monkeys itself. Handling most swells up to a solid 6 foot plus, the wave draws up in to peak at take off. Wider sets can require a cutback before it draws up into fast peeling wave running down the reef for another 100m – 150 m.
Suited to advanced-level surfers, the Bubble is a super-sucky right that does a 180-degree wrap before ending in deep water.
Also known as Churches or Missionaries, this is a long, bowling left is one of the most consistent breaks in the area.
If the wind is on-shore at Max’s left, it’s perfect for the Max’s Right – a fun and sometimes challenging, hollow right hander.
Also called Rangas, this is a super-fun, super tubular right that has been compared to HT’s in the Mentawai’s without the shallow end section.
Another epic left point on coral, Jurassic’s is set in a backdrop that influenced the name and can vary from a full heart-in-your-mouth type tube to a fun totally wackable wall.
Shallow, dangerous and perfect, this can be one of Indonesia’s best waves on the rare occasions it breaks.
Made up of several separate waves, all of which work on different swell directions, the “yard” is about 10 minutes from the resort and open to the full brunt of swell. Schoolyards can offer everything from a “Sunset Beach” style open-ocean peak, to fun hittable rights and lefts. A trip to the yard always draws a smile.
An easy, user-friendly right that runs along the edge of a nearby island. Ideal at 3-5ft. Great for beginners and intermediate surfers, just 10 mins from your lodge.
Made up of two separate reef passes, the E.R. features multiple lefts and rights. Best on a very light to medium swell, the E.R. has a wave suited to all levels of experience. Generally the surf needs to be flat at our other breaks for this to be its best. The E.R. is also home to some amazing live coral and snorkeling. 25 minutes from the resort.
A shallow, tubing left suited for intermediate and advanced surfers. Dislocators is in a region to the south that is more suited to the advanced level surfer willing to leave a little skin on the reef. 35 minutes from the resort.
Wegs equals Kegs. An amazing coral point, 45 minutes south of the resort. Nothing but high-speed tubes.
Offers reliable left that is offshore in the SE. A swell magnet, can handle real size. Long left walls with barrel sections up to 300m offer reliable fun. Suits surfers from intermediate to advanced as well as big wave chargers
On the SW side of the telos is a rare feature, a long beach fully exposed to swell. Often too big to surf, however when the swell eases back the Beachie offers thick barrels on shallow sand when all other waves are flat.
