Sumba - Rote Charter
This is an epic charter covering some very remote surf spots in the eastern end of the archipelago. Starting in Kupang, you will spend a few days around Rote (see Timor Boat page for more details on the surf in this area) before heading westward to the beautiful islands Sawu and Raijua, which have classic ...
Sumbawa, West Timor and Sumba host a multitude of quality waves. Mostly shallow, left breaking reef breaks such as Super Suck and Scar Reef which are aptly named. These hoover up the in-season swells between April and October which swing up from the Roaring 40s and march south-west across the Indian Ocean. These combine with light trade winds blowing from the south-east and classic reef setups. Even during the off season when the trade winds switch to west and north-west there are still classic waves to be had especially on the pacific side and the swells are still regular. Sea temperatures remain steady at around 28Â°C or 82Â°F.
