The surf in West Papua has lots of good quality and potential, although it isn’t on the same level as the Mentawai Islands and rarely receives a big swell. Instead, you will find yourself discovering new waves and surfing rarely visited left and righthand reef setups.
Located in Tarimbang this is probably Sumba’s most ridden wave. The fast, hollow sections on the long righthander split the crowd and there are also softer shoulder sections for surfers of all abilities riding all crafts.
Highly consistent, this wave holds as big as it gets. Pero Lefts can be excellent as swell is refracted heavily into big bowl sections with ample tube-time.
The main Rote´s wave and one of Indonesia’s longest. Its quality and consistency mean it can be surfed from 2ft to 15ft. It has three sections with different levels of difficulty and is often compared with G-Land.
10 minutes away by boat and named after the village where it is located. A short and good-fun right. Intense, powerful and with nice gaps at low tide. It gets easier to handle at mid and high tide. Not a soul to be seen here either.

In West Papua, the breaks are also incredibly uncrowded, the water warm and the stoke incredible. Trips to West Papua aren’t so much about surfing existing waves, but finding new ones. With the Raja Ampat archipelago an endless maze of nearly 1,500 islands, it remains one of the last surfing destinations where this isn’t just a possibility, but a probability.
