Jimmys Left surf break South Sumatra

General surf information

Quality left hand surf break that is not mentioned much. When this wave is working be prepared to race a heavy hollow stand up tube. If the wind is not good try Jimmy´s Right on the south end of the reef. The surf in this area is for the experienced only. Take more than one board when surfing this area.

Vibe in the water

Alone is what you might feel here as it's not unusual to find an empty lineup even on excellent days. Like Way Jambu, Honey Smacks and Jimmy's Right showing respect in the lineup is assumed if you paddle out here.
