Periscopes is a super fun and tubular right at the end of a long reef that sticks out into the bay. Compared to other Indo waves it is a relatively safe reef and peels into an easy channel. It is best up to about 8ft. Although it breaks on bigger swells, the channel closes out. It works best on high tide and North wind blows offshore but no wind is best. The best wave size is between head high to triple overhead. We recommend surfing in boardshorts or a bikini year-round and the water and air temp here is tropical!
We recommend riding your fish, standard shortboard or step-up when it’s bigger here. Periscopes in Sumbawa is best suited to intermediate to advanced surfers, with waves that are consistent (7/10) but can get busy at peak times (5/10).
Periscopes is a 15 minute walk from Lakey Peak and the hotels.
