6 Perfect Waves You’re Not Allowed To Surf

The reality is rather different. Since 2001 Nihiwatu (Sumba Island, Indo) has in fact been the site of a luxury resort, where these days a room for the night will cost you $900 USD — a price which includes food but not non-alcoholic drinks, nor the 21% government tax and service charge, nor your reservation for one of the day’s ten available “surf slots”. If you’re not staying at the resort and have not paid for a “surf slot”, you can’t surf the break; if you try to, you will be kindly asked to leave, possibly by a local wielding a machete.
