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. The surf in this area is definitely for the experienced only. Go here prepared to break boards.

If the wind is not good try Jimmy┬┤s Left, only 40 mtrs away.


1.5 by car and up to 2 hr drive by scooter north west from Tanjung Setia in the Pugungn Tampak area of South Sumatra. The trip to Jimmys's Right is easiest with a driver hired for the day (car and driver IDR 500,000 2017 .. seats 4), its a long way on a scooter. The trip is scenic, the road following the coastline with many small bays and rocky headlands. There are other breaks before you reach Jimmy's so its worth checking out some of the beaches and bays if you have the time.

While your in the area you should drive around the headland and check out Honey Smacks, Jimmy's Left and Jenny's Right.

Paddling out

S-h-a-l-l-o-w with heads of coral to boot. Getting dragged across the reef is common.
