Pulau Pisang 7 out of 10 based on 1 Reviews. 1 user reviews.

Capable of greatness, the lefts and rights that break off of the small island of Pulau Pisang (“Banana Island”) are challenging at the best of times.

The right is longer and mellower versus the left but is not mellow. Expect fast, down the line races over shallow reef. The left is a difficult, hollow barrel machine suitable only for tube riding maestros.

In an uncrowded corner of Indonesia, you are all but assured to surf Pulau Pisang by yourself.
