Type of break:
– Right hand river mouth with a reef/rock bottom
– Left hand sand bar with a sand bottom
– Left hand reef break
There are the 3 main breaks at Canggu but there are also a few more options in the area easily accessible from Canggu. Or a short drive north / south. On small days in the waist to head high range there are waves to suit every one. But as it reaches the head to double head high the right hander at the river mouth turns on and can really pack some punch. Likewise with the Sandbar and Left hand reef break right in front of the cafe’s.
North: North North East. Canggu can be pretty much surfed all year round. During the dry season the early mornings have the best conditions before the ESE – SE Tradewind kicks in. Wet season, anytime the wind is relatively light.
Usually Canggu needs a bit of water so around mid to high on the run in and then high to mid on the run out.
This place can get pretty busy through the dry season but get up early and with the right conditions you should have a ball.
