Raijua is an island in the Lesser Sunda Islands in Indonesia. Its total land area is 13.9 square miles (36 square km).[1] Raijua is sometimes called The Wedge by surfers because it includes an exposed reef break, making it an ideal surfing location during Indonesia's dry season (May through October).[2]
