The Bungalow is perfectly placed a stones throw away from the ocean and sits directly in front of the world famous “Lances Left” setting you up and positioning you for some serious epic surfing sessions. The resort itself is located is a region that has an abundance of fun waves for all levels of surfers that can all be accessed within 20 minutes via speedboat. It also has a couple of secret spots that only the locals know, so make sure to ask once your at the resort. Kingfisher Bay Resort with its proximity to all the variety of world class waves you can surf is definitely a surfers paradise.
Lances left is located right in front of the resort and just around the corner from Lances Right and is very consistent. When the wind is from the East & the swell is from the South up to 3 sections can reel into the bay delivering anything from big walls to draining barrels. Works best on the Mid tide & handles as 12ft+. Getting caught inside when it is big is easy to do and surfing the wave all the way to the end to greedy’s then falling off will put you high and dry, if this happens use the keyhole out the front of the resort.
Lance’s Right is one of the most perfect powerful waves on the planet. When the swell is 6-8ft from the SW, light W or no wind, at least 2hrs of tide this wave turns into an insane barrel machine. You can get barreled all the way from the office until the surgeons table. It is fairly consistent considering the swell has to wrap around the bottom of the island of Sipora. Trying to get back out when caught inside on a solid swell can be risky as you can end up high and dry on the surgeons table. Best bet is to play it safe and head towards shore over the reef and go around into the deep channel and paddle back out and have another crack.
This refined right hander is located just across the bay from Lances Left and provides you with perfect walls and barreling sections. Although the ride is short and is fun under 4 feet, once it’s overhead it’s another beast altogether. Before breaking, the wave forms an A-frame which then gives out perfect barrels the entire length of the wave.
Located 50 meters from Lances left; this left hander can throw quite the tantrum but can definitely crank up with the right swell direction. With its hard hitting walls to overflowing square barrels and a very steep takeoff, you must choose your waves selectively as this wave has some serious venom and if you’re unlucky it will push you across the reef. If you are willing to try this wave, despite being quite difficult to navigate, there are some serious rewards with epic rides.
This surf spot is the perfect place for people who are learning how to surf. Located on a beautiful 1 km stretch of white sandy beach with palm trees bordering around the island, this spot can also offer some really good sessions for some patient surfers as the sand banks are quite inconsistent. Just a heart beat away from the resort.
9 / 10
Unbelievable time with the best waves of my life. The resort itself is right outside Lances Left which was perfect for me as I could pop in and out of the water. As far as getting to the Kingfisher Bay resort this was really easy and I was completely blown away by the advice and help given to me by the crew at World Surf Adventures. These guys really know their stuff when it comes to the Mentawai's!
