Nusa Lembongan offers an amazing array of quality waves suiting all levels, all within a stone throw of each other, and on a stunning tropical island!

It is the only area in the east of Bali that is offshore in the dry season trade winds.

Access Nusa Lembongan by catching the ferry across from Sanur, there are plenty of tourist booths around that can offer you a ticket (be sure to negotiate on the price), or you can go directly to the office on Jalan Hang tuah, next to Warung Nano’k.

About Razors

Razors is a left hand reef break, found across the channel to the south from Shipwrecks. It offers long waves, which can close out often depending on the direction and tide. Ideally surf Razors at high tide to avoid collision with the reef. Can be a fun accessible wave at 2-3ft, but as the size increases, so does the risk, as waves can approach the reef from all sorts of angles and leave you guessing which ones you should take and which ones should be left alone.

Best Conditions for Razors

Razors breaks from head high to 1.5x overhead, with SE – NE winds offering the best conditions, making it an ideal dry-season spot. It prefers a higher tide. This is a great option if you want to sacrifice some of Nusa Lembongan’s perfection for a less crowded session.

Getting in and out at Razors

Access Razors by paddling from the shore, through the channels either side of the reef. It can be a bit of a long paddle. You can negotiate with local boat drivers to take you out and pick you up if you wanted to save some energy.

Getting to Razors

Access Nusa Lembongan by catching the ferry across from Sanur, there are plenty of tourist booths around that can offer you a ticket (be sure to negotiate on the price), or you can go directly to the office on Jalan Hang tuah, next to Warung Nano’k.

Once on the island it is easy to get around, and if you are staying in the area you will most likely walk here along the beach. Razors breaks on the western side of the channel to shipwrecks.

Hazards to look out for at Razors

Be aware of currents running through the line-up, making it difficult to stay in position.

This reef can get shallow at low tides, and there are often some rogue wide sets that will clean you up.

be careful of the seaweed farms in the lagoon on the paddle out, they can cut your hands.
