The surf on Roti is consistent and offshore. There are a variety of lefts and some good rights when the trades aren't too strong. Waves suit all standards, ranging from mellow to hollow.
You will most likely make base at Nembrala, the longest and most consistent left in the area. From here you have the choice of about 6 other waves (lefts and rights) within a 2 hour radius.
These are private charters with just your mates. Your captain Heri, knows the place very well, so you just work in with him to decide where to surf. This area has breaks to suit all standards, and there are some very good beginners waves.
