With over 35 years of experience, Malole Surf House is the authority on where, when and how to surf lesser-known and secret spots around Rote and on surrounding islands. The tides, winds, directions of swells all are imprinted on the backs of our brains, we can let you know when to go and where to go for the best surf experience.
The people of Rote are a very respectful, charming, predominantly Christian people. Traditionally their main economic activities have been thecultivation of the Lontar Palm, which they use for everything, from nutrition to building materials. Fishing and more recently, the seaweed farming provides an income for the local people. During the traditional surf season from May to November the trade winds are consistent and offshore, allowing for comfortable and breezy evenings. Average daytime high temps are 86-88F and nighttime lows are around 75F. The ocean clocks in at a soothing 80F.
T-Land has often been compared to the Javanese G-Land in scale but our home break is a much friendlier version of the infamous left-hand reef break in Java.
Not to be outshone by Java, T-Land has endless long very ripable walls, multiple take off spots and challenging bowl sections that will amaze you. T-land can have many moods with all the variations to wind, swell and tide. On many days it has perfect waves .........adrenaline is served here. Like a colossal point break, T-land is broken up into a few different take-off zones, each with their own character. On occasion, they all connect brilliantly but, for the most part they provide a delightful variety and a break from the long paddle.
T-land distinguishes itself as one of the most consistent breaks anywhere in the world, almost always four foot and over, breaking on any tide. Best of all, 90 per cent of the time you will enjoy an offshore breeze. You have to love the trade winds. If you´re looking for some unchartered territory and exploration, come with us to discover waves with empty lineups that desperately need to be ridden.
If there is no swell and the surf is flat there is always great fishing, kayaking and exploring the local area´s attractions. Flat days can be restful lazing around in the sun or check out the other activities to choose from:
