Rote, Nemberala, and the surrounding Islands pick-up all the South to South West swells tracking across Antarctica moving from below South Africa towards South Australia; same as the rest of Indonesia. Although there can be swell year round the season is typically thought of as March to November with the largest swells May through September/October. The wind pattern typically will see light and variable wind conditions early and late season, with firm and consistent ESE trades blowing June though Aug/Sept.


Question: What is there to do other than surfing?
Answer: Everything except shopping and dining out; or if you choose, nothing at all.
