The local break, and one of the longest and most consistent waves in Indonesia. T-Land, named after Java’s G-Land, however much more accessible. The long left-handed reef break works mostly with offshore winds in the main season and gives a good swell at all tides. The break has four sections. The sections vary in difficulty and are suitable for intermediate to advanced surfers. There is room for all out there due to the long ride and paddle!
The Bommie is a section of reef on the north side, a more advanced wave. The Bommie breaks to the left and right, however the right is more organised which ends in a deep water channel. This wave needs a bigger swell and has a strong current at times. Lower the tide – better the wave.
Rote’s beginner wave, the name comes from the many squeals from and laughter from beginners on their very first wave. Squealers usually works at low tide, or during a big swell at high tide. It has a left and right-hand section.
Sucky Mamas, with its local name ‘Sukanamon’, is a 10 minute boat ride north of Nembrala. It is a more advanced hollow right-hand wave, which works well during lower tides. On a higher tide it can be a fatter, steep wave. Suckies is a shorter wave, approximately 50 yards and best at mid tide.
Boa is a picturesque village about 15 minutes from Nembrala. You can travel there by boat, scooter or our jeep. This heavier more advanced right-hand wave is a perfect tube when its on, the wave starts with a steep hollow top section and opens up to a thick wall. The best time to experience this is during the shoulder seasons when the winds blow onshore in Nembrala but offshore in Boa. Mid to the high tide’s the time to ride! Rote is a surfer’s dream with so many hidden gems to explore! On the island and the islands close by.
