Sanur Reef Surf Guide

Sanur Reef in Bali (Sanur) is a sheltered reef break that only works once in a while. Nov-April (Wet Season) provides optimum time of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the west. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south. A right hand reef. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Watch out for rocks.
