Surf & Other Activities

Deep in the Hu'u bay, where native people once lived in harmony with nature, far enough from crowded for peace and relaxation, yet close enough for every convenience you'll find The Aman Gati Hotel.

There are 5 world class surfing waves situated in the same bay directly in front of the Aman Gati Hotel. With other waves in the near by area. The peak swell period is from April to September. Late and early season October to March can offer perfect clean conditions with light winds. 

 

Lakey Peak 
Lakey Peak is a perfect A frame peak with the left being longer than the right. The best tide for the left is medium to low tide, no lower than a 0.5 on a 4-6 ft swell. It does break on the bigger swells but has to be a higher tide. The right hander breaks on medium to high tide offering an intense right hand barrel. Breaks through the lower tides only on small swells. This wave is one of the most consistent waves in Indonesia and offers surf for the beginner to the most experienced. Breaks through dry and rainy seasons. 


Lakey Pipe 
Is across the channel on the left side of the peak, a popular wave amongst the body boarders and surfers. Best at 3-4 ft on a medium to high tide. It can be surfed at low tide on a body board if you have the balls. 


Cobblestones 

Cobblestones is a super fun left and right breaks. Works well on small swells and only breaks at higher tides. The left hander the higher the tide the better the wave 2.2-2.6. the right hander only works from a 1.8 tide and up, a super fun mellow wave. 


Nungas 

The big left hander 5 minutes walk down the beach from Lakey Peak, sections start to connect on the bigger swells offering rides of 200 meters or more. Nungas hold any size swell the ocean throws at it and breaks on all tide but is subject to strong currents so try to surf on slack tides. 


Periscopes 

This is a right hander 15 minutes walk down the beach from Lakey Peak, it only breaks best from 1.7 tide and up. Can offer three barrel sections on one wave. Best on a 3-6 foot swell, breaks on the bigger swells but closes out through the channel. 


Magic Point  

Originally Machi Point after the nearby village but now renamed Magic Point because of its beautiful scenery. A fun right hand reef/point setup. Best on south swell direction and works on variable tides depending on conditions. Can barrel but is usually long workable walls. Its 30 mins by boat directly across the bay.

Sumbawa is a little paradise in terms of waves. Amazingly perfect almost everyday of our stay. You are a bit in the jungle, but that's what we were after. Aman Gati was fine. The perfect wave team made the trip super easy. Awesome time

Lakey peak was Awesome. The swell in April was never below head high and we had some fantastic days. 1 perfect day at Periscopes that made the trip worthwhile in itself. If you go to Lakey I would also highly recommend taking the boat trip to Magic Point. We had it to ourselves and it was awesome.
The staff at The Perfect Wave were fantastic. They took all of the hassle out of the trip. There were other people on our plane staying at the same hotel who had a much more stressful trip because their transfer's and other sundries were not taken care of. I would highly recommend using the Perfect Wave for your next trip.

What a place, no stress or worry. 
From transfers to hotel selection, perfect wave had it sorted.

Lakey Peak was epic, great surf destination! We stayed at the Aman Gati hotel and had an awesome time. The room was great, clean and good bathroom. The food was really good and cheap. The only down fall going to Lakey peak is that, if you don't surf there isn't much else to do. There were lots of surf options all walking distance from the hotel. Overall had a great time and looking forward to going back in the near future.
