Ekas Surf Spots
Inside Ekas is located off shore from Ekas Village on the far side of Awang. Its an A-frame breaking over a sand covered reef. The right is steep and goes for over 100m ending with a barrel section. Best surfed on low-mid tide. The left is a mellower ride, but gives you an even longer ride into the channel. The left is best on mid-high tide. Due to its position deep inside the bay it needs a medium sized swell from a primarily Southern direction. There is a chance that the spot may not be breaking when you arrive. You can paddle out or take a boat from Rungkang beach, or take a boat across the bay from Awang.
Outside Ekas located at the entrance to the bay and offshore from Pantai Surga or Paradise Beach picks up a lot more swell than the inside break. A South East swell is the best direction although anything from the South will be fine. This is a deep water wave with big open faces suited for experienced surfers. A steep take off straight into a fast walling ride with a chance to get barrelled. On bigger days when there is lots of moving water, you may find yourself out of position as a the whole ocean seems to rise and fall around you. Access is by boat from Awang or Ekas. If you manage to find the dirt road to Pantai Surga, you can also paddle out from there.
Rungkang is a stretch of beach protected from big swells near Ekas village. The waves are always small here and it is suitable for learners. There is a right hander which can peel for a long distance.
Pantai Kura Kura
Outside the bay, on the Southern coastline is Pantai Kura Kura so named for the rocky outcrop resembling a turtle. You can take a look at the various breaks here if not much is happening in Ekas.
There are some breaks south of Awang village that you can check out.
