About Honey Smacks

Honeysmacks is a heavy slabbing left hand reef break, breaking over coral. Body boarders love the steep hollow drops of this wave, and only the best of surfers will navigate the take off. It jacks up out of nowhere, throwing up a big open round barrel that bends towards you. it breaks into a well defined channel, that can have a strong current running through it on the outgoing tides.

Best Conditions for Honey Smacks

Honeysmacks is exposed to the Indian ocean and takes all the energy on the reef. It is difficult to determine the exact conditions this wave breaks on as it seems kind of fickle. Any swell from the S – SW will hit the reef and mid to high tide offers the best cover over the reef. It is offshore from SE through to E.

Getting in and out at Honey Smacks

Get in and out by paddling around the reef in the channel to the North. On an outgoing tide the current will drag you straight out to the line up. Be careful of the shallow reef when straightening out here, and the current can make for a difficult paddle when coming back in.

Getting to Honey Smacks

Follow the newly constructed road all the way north from Krui town, turn right at Jalan Khalipah Alam at the Indomaret. Follow this road, past jenny’s reef and around the head land until you see Walur Surf house, the wave is right infront of the creek here.
