“Maluk is a pleasant town with good seafood and a very relaxing beach located below a spectacular headland. A few years back it received a lot of attention and international visitors due to the construction of a mine on the nearby mountains.”

“Maluk Bay is the home of Super Suck, which continues the West Sumbawa pattern of a deep, cliff-lined bay, waiting for a bigger SW-W swell to show it’s world-class colours. The name says it all, especially at low tide, which is usually only surfed by bodyboarders or the very best tube technicians and depth is measured in inches. Take-offs are beyond critical and require an angled, straight into the barrel approach, which briefly lets up before increasing speed towards the inevitable straight reef shut-down.”
