Jimmy's Right surf break South Sumatra

General surf information

Quality right hand surf break, often very heavy and fast. Requires a quick pull-off before the end section which shuts-down on a very shallow reef. Jimmy's Right is definitely for the experienced only. Broken boards are very common here.

If the wind is not good try Jimmy's Left on the north side of the reef.

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 and Honey Smacks showing respect in the lineup is assumed if you paddle out here. Those that don't are usually invited to take off a little deeper.

Jimmy's Right surf break is located in the village of Penengahan in the Lemong district of South Sumatra. Follow the W Trans Sumatera Hwy ( Jalan Lintas Barat ) to Penengahan. Turn west at the Penenhagan school. At the intersection turn right onto Jl. Pekon Balak. In 700 mtrs turn left. Next turn left on Jl. Rarukah Penengahan. Follow the road to the beach.

The trip is scenic, the road follows the coastline with many small bays and rocky headlands. Honey Smacks and Jenny's Right are before you reach Jimmy's so its worth checking them out on the way.
