Surfing in Rote

Indonesia is blessed with the most consistent and quality surf of any nation on this earth.  The huge window spread across the lower portion of the Indian Ocean from Africa to Australia  allows the swells generated off Antarctica to travel north east toward Indonesia unobstructed by any large  land masses.  These swells wrap around the thousands of islands that make up Indonesia producing both rights and lefts breaking in all directions; providing options with almost any wind direction.

In addition to the consistency of swell, the waves are known for being particularly clean and organized.  This organization is a result of the long distances the swells travel in addition to the more gradually sloping ocean floor and groomed coral reefs.

Due to the unequalled concentration of surf throughout Indonesia it is possible to find many breaks of varying intensity to more then satisfy surfers of all skill levels.
