That particular reef you can see is about ankle deep when you step off your board but varies with chest deep holes but you run along the edge at angle. karangabat is considered a soft wave, as is Burger World and BengBengs and Pitstops. But they are better most of the days you get at your bog standard breaks near home.
Basically in Indo if the wave barrels, you are on or over a pretty shallow reef if it slabs you are over an even more shallow reef apart fro some rare spots Indo is reef breaks. Some were death slab so far as I was concerned or full on barrel s that stretched your barrel riding skill to the optimum. Eg Rifles a right or Kandui a left.
Rifle, Kandui, Bankvaults are several levels up from where I feel comfortable. Hideaways is also a race the cheese grater underneath.
One thing about reef breaks is they make the swell break consistently , get the break figured and you're good to go.
You get some beatings figuring it out.
Indo has humilated, humbled and exhilarated me, given me what I would consider the wave of my life and a couple of near death experiences. So I continue to go back for more.
BTW my idea of what I want to ride has changed since I first started going in the 1970s.
Current choice, long wave medium to largish carvathon waves with barrel sections hit at speed. Will accept small and performancy type waves if that's what is offered
May Trip planned and wife permit issued as Taiwan didn't produce much T/land
do your home work and see where the next set of uncle Jaffa travelblogs will come from. Sadly no foot cleaning fish or hot springs here but my wife has gracious consented to sit by the pool and have massages and cocktails and we can afford it as there are no shops within thousands of kilometers.
I've taken up troll hunting just for fun, instead of a rifle I'll just use a pun!
