Lying just off the southwestern tip of Timor, Rote is the southernmost island in Indonesia. Some surf spots are located on offshore islands and require chartering a boat. Ndao is only 15km offshore, but the people are very different and have their own language. The western reef tip has good exposure to swell and holds a left in any type of E wind plus there’s a right further S in glass or N winds. Both feature fast, steep drops and racy walls. The cross-currents don’t help and there’s a good chance of seeing some reef sharks out here.
