Details

This legendary route through the Timor Sea holds amazing waves, but also authentic stone-age villages where the encounter with the local population is a taste of the other side of the world. Basically, the program is sailing and enjoying a traditional wooden sailing boat, surfing on perfect waves, exploring virgin beaches or rainforests and chilling during colorful sunsets.

We come to pick you up at Kupang airport (Timor). After check in aboard Wisesa, we will serve a delicious breakfast while we will start the cruise to reach our first surf destination in the island of Rote.

We will surf the famous wave of T-Land in Nembrala Rote, known as one of the best and most consistent lefthander in Indonesia, breaking any tide from 2 to 15 ft. We will also enjoy few others very nice hidden waves in the area.

Then, we will head to the remote island of Savu and surfing around Raijua where we will find the longest lefthander in Indonesia! Only very few boats can get in this area.

After few days of great surfing, we will move to Sumba island. On the way, we can stop in Mangkudu island for the ones who want to try a challenging lefthander that can break up to 15ft. For the less skilled, there are few mellower waves in the area.

Afterwards, we will enjoy plenty of hidden spots along the Sumba’s wild coast with fantastic sceneries such as deep bays, pristine beaches, mountains and stone-age villages. The potential along this coast is just amazing!

We finish this beautiful adventure in the North West of Sumba in Waikelo where we will drop you at airport to catch your flight back to Bali.

Located in the North East Indonesia, in the South Pacific Ocean, the Islands of North Maluku (Moluccas) are composed by Halmahera and Morotai for the main islands and a multitude of smaller islands, such as Ternate, Rau etc…

Those islands are all covered by virgin rain forests that are the natural habitat of many tropical birds and endemic species.

Wind is mostly light during this period. We expect to touch swell from North East according to the monsoon season and also from East Pacific cyclone season. We have the choice in a panel of high quality waves. Our professional surfing guide will drive you in the spots according to the swell and wind direction to bring you surfing the perfect barrels!

This amazing surfing cruise starts and ends in Tobelo. We will pick up you at airport in the morning of your arrival day and transfer you aboard WISESA. After a wonderful breakfast and a short briefing, the boat trip will immediately start and we will have the opportunity to do our first surfing session the same day.

From there, we will cruise around the wild coast of Morotai where we will do several stops and surfing along great reefs with very nice empty waves. Afterwards, we will reach the first “known” wavy area in Sopi Bay where we will surf the magnet swell “Serenade” and Indo-Jiwa.

According to the conditions, we won’t hesitate to go far West or East to the Buli Archipelago!

After a fresh welcome drink, check in aboard Wisesa, your new home for the next days.
