Few places do it like Lakey Peak.
Before there were wavepools for aerial progression, there was Lakey Peak.
Located in the shark-fin bay of West Nusa Tenggara, Lakey's triangular reef provides an abiding right air section into a blustery trade wind. For those with the surest of feet, the left also offers a slingshot into a steep, hollow section, which can be aired if you dare. The transition, though, is not as soft and fluffy as the right.
Many of surfing's great aerialists have visited Lakey Peak in the past, including Julian Wilson, Dusty Payne, Chippa Wilson, and Filipe Toledo, who after filming there for Spinning at the Speed of Now in 2015, returned this year for more "training" (what Brazilians call "surfing") prior to the Keramas event.
The results speak for themselves.
Is there an easier ramp outside of Texas?
