You’ll be sharing a room with another surfer on this trip in Malole Surf House. The two main houses capture blue-green lagoon and whitewater panoramas. Each is architecturally crafted in Rotenese fashion with Western accompaniments. Surrounded by gardened walkways, the structures offer traditional Indonesian craftsmanship, comfort, and privacy.

Features include traditional stonework, outdoor seating, and ample storage for sports gear. The property is surrounded by Rote’s signature natural stone and palm fencing, which ensures privacy and security without obstructing sea views. Room servicing is available daily and all of the modern electrical conveniences (cooling fans, laptop wireless, and reading lamps) are provided.


Your surf coaching program will be led by experienced and passionate local team. Safari Surf Adventures will guide you to level appropriate waves and employ the unique SSA training curriculum in and out of the water. A key component of the teaching philosophy is video and photo reviews, helping to track your progress and giving you focussed goals to work on throughout the program. All progress tracking, photos and videos Safari Surf Adventures takes of you are yours to take home at the end of your SSA adventure, giving you a great reference for continued progression whenever and wherever you surf.

This surf camp will take place in Rote Island, Indonesia. Rote is the most southern island of the Nusa Tenggara island chain in Indonesia. It lies a few miles south of West Timor, 150 miles from the coast of northern Australia and has a population of 60,000.

The Rotenese are a very respectful, charming, predominantly Christian people. Traditionally, their main economic activities have been the exploitation of the Lontar Palm, which they use for everything, from nutrition to building materials.

Fishing and more recently, the cultivation of seaweed (agar-agar) provides the island a stable local income. Tradewinds are consistent and offshore, allowing for comfortable and breezy evenings. Average daytime high temps are 29-31 degree Celsius (86-88 degree Fahrenheit) and nighttime lows are around 24 degree Celsius (75 degree Fahrenheit). The ocean clocks in at a soothing 27 degree Celsius (80 degree Fahrenheit).

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at El Tari International Airport (KOE). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Safari Surf Aventures will pick you up from the airport.

You’ll fly from Bali (Denpasar) to Kupang, West Timor. There are two main airlines which service the route; Garuda and Lion Air. Generally speaking, Lion air is the budget option, with Garuda offering considerably more flights per day. Both airlines are EU and FAA safety approved.

Depending on your flight time, it may be possible to transfer directly to Rote Island, but late flights will require an overnight stop in Kupang. In which case, Safari Surf Aventures representative will greet you and escort you to your hotel in the city.

There are two ways to access Rote Island, via turbo-prop aeroplane, or by fast ferry. If you chose to fly, please be aware that there is a current surfboard bag length restriction of 170 centimeters. If your surfboard bag exceeds this, it will be sent via fast ferry the next day at a transfer cost of around USD 20. The surf camp will arrange a pickup for your board bag on arrival at the ferry port.

Arrival by ferry

If you choose to take the fast ferry with your board bag (or without), the ferry departs Kupang for Rote at 08:30, arriving in Rote at approximately 10:30.

Depending on your transfer choice, from either Rote Airport or Rote harbour, an air-conditioned van will take you on the one-hour drive to the surf camp on Nemberala Beach.

Safari Surf Aventures suggests booking all accommodations and transfers through them, so you can get to the surf camp location comfortably and hassle-free. Travel logistics to remote places in Indonesia can get quite frustrating if they are not handled with the experience of the local agents.
