When is the best time to surf in Lombok

Best time to go

In contrary to big brother Bali, Lombok’s best surfing season is during the rain season, between November and March. Since Lombok’s best breaks and beaches are on the south end, and not of the west or east, the currents are slightly different. Although it rains continuously during these months, the water is warm and the swell changes from west to south making up for some great surf conditions. Another great plus is that you’re sharing the waves with only a handful of foreigners.

If you find yourself in Lombok during dry season, from April to October, there’s still a favorable chance of catching a good wave, even though this is most likely to happen before 9AM. During the day it’s best to stick to the west coast of the island, where you’ll find breaks as Desert Point and other lesser-known breaks.
