General surf information
Way Jambu also known as Sumatran Pipeline is the best quality wave in the Krui, Tanjung Setia area. A long left hand surf break with a down the line hollow barrel. Be prepared for a critical take-off in front of very shallow reef and stand-up barrels on bigger days.
Can be ridden from 1.5 to 3 mtrs. In general for advanced to expert surfers only but sometimes on smaller days when the conditions are right it can provide a challenge for the intermediate to advanced surfer.
Vibe in the water
When Way Jambu really gets going it's a wave of consequence. At 1.8 mtrs you will usually find only 6 in the lineup, on bigger days 1 or 2. As is the case with Jimmy's right and Honey Smacks sufers look out for each other at this break.

Head north to Way Jambu from the Pertamina Gas Station in Bangu Negara. In approx 1.9km you will come to a shop (Jaya Cell outlet) on your left, turn left on the next road. Follow the road to the T section then turn left. Turn right down the dirt track to the beach at the sign to Way Jambu (made from broken surfboard). The owner of the property charges a small fee to park your scooter on his property at the beach.
