Located in Lampung, West Sumatra, Way Jambu is a world-class reef break, nicknamed the Sumatran Pipe. This wave lives up to its name and offers up a fast, powerful, and wide barrel over a hyper shallow and sharp reef. This wave is reserved for experts or suicidal folks only, but if you can cut it the wave breaks hard and fast for up to 150 meters over that sharp coral. Buyer beware.
