Sri Noa Noa Crew

Our Surfing Destinations

Surf the famous surf breaks between Bali and West Timor, including Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba, Mengkudu, Raijua, Savu and Rote.

Lombok - West Sumbawa

The original Indo surf charter

Duration: typically 6-9 nights

Starts & Ends in Benoa Harbor, Bali.

  • Departing from Benoa Harbor in Bali, we head straight to Nusa Lembongan to warm up at Shipwrecks, Razors, Lacerations and Playgrounds or, if the swell is small, Ceningan.
  • Overnight, we cross to Lombok and the famous Desert Point, home of possibly the world’s best left.
  • Next you head East to the West coast of Sumbawa and the classic breaks of Scar Reef, Super Suck and Yoyos.
  • These are high-quality surf breaks that regularly offer hollow waves. Depending on conditions and the type of surf you want, you can also access the many breaks on the South coast of Lombok, including Desert Point, Belongas Bay, Maui, Grupuk, Inside & Outside Ekas, plus other more secret surf spots.
  • The food is delicious and plentiful to keep energy levels up. Don’t expect to lose weight. There’s plenty of time to kick back and relax.
  • If you’re lucky, you can score Desert Point again on the way back. On your last day, you generally get a last surf around Nusa Lembongan before returning to Benoa Harbor/Bali late afternoon and transfer back to your hotel or straight to the airport.

Sumba - Mengkudu - Sumba

Our favorite surf trip to one of Indonesia’s most beautiful islands with spectacular landscapes, fantastic surf and great fishing.

Duration typically 9-11 nights

Starts and ends in Waikelo/Tambolaka, West Sumba.

  • The trip starts in Waikelo (Sumba), where we pick you up from Tambolaka airport & transfer you straight to the Sri Noa Noa. We set sail for the first spot, arriving late afternoon for a first surf featuring a great left and occasionally also a right.
  • You then surf and cruise your way down the West coast of Sumba with plenty of lefts and rights on offer. At some point during the trip, as always depending on the prevailing conditions, you will make the crossing to the islands of Mengkudu, where there is a long left as well as a right on the right conditions. A trip to Sumba wouldn’t be complete without surfing Terimbang (also called Miller’s Right), a relatively well known and consistent right-hander that is spectacular on a big swell. Sessions here can be a highlight of the trip.
  • You then surf and cruise your way back up the West coast of Sumba. Your final surf is in the Pero area, rich in ancient culture and with several monolithic villages around.
  • The game fishing is fantastic, with trevally, tuna, mackerel and sailfish regularly caught. When time is up, we return to the port of Waikelo on the Western tip of Sumba and transfer you to Tambolaka airport for your flight back to Bali.
  • It’s also possible to finish the trip in Waingapu (East Sumba) and surf the Eastern Sumbanese coast towards the end of the trip.

Explore with Sri Noa Noa

Rote - Sumba

The ultimate surf boat adventure to some classic, empty lineups.

Duration typically 11-14 nights

Starts in Kupang, West Timor and ends in Waikelo/Tambolaka, West Sumba.

  • The trip starts in Kupang (West Timor), where we pick you up from the airport & transfer you straight to the Sri Noa Noa. We set sail for Rote, arriving early next morning. You generally spend a couple of days around the island.
  • Nemberala (also called T-Land) is the main (but not the only) surf break in the area: a long left hander, that picks up plenty of swell and holds it as big as it gets. There are numerous lefts and rights on Rote & the nearby islands of Dana, Ndao & Doa, all offering uncrowded perfection. The rights are good morning options before the trades kick in. They can also fire during shoulder seasons when winds are more variable.
  • After a few days surfing Rote we head west to the little known islands of Raijua & Savu. Raijua is a consistent, fast left. Savu is an amazing right that needs swell to work. If you get it on you are guaranteed a session of a lifetime.
  • From here, you cross to the Southern tip of Sumba and the islands of Mengkudu, where there is a long left and right on the right conditions. Further on is Terimbang (also called Miller’s Right), a relatively well known and consistent right-hander that is spectacular on a big swell. Sessions here can be a highlight of the trip.
  • You then surf and cruise your way up the West coast of Sumba with plenty of lefts and rights on offer. Your final surf is in the Pero area, rich in ancient culture.
  • The game fishing is fantastic, with trevally, tuna, mackerel and sailfish regularly caught. When time is up we return to the port of Waikelo on the western tip of Sumba and transfer you to Tambolaka airport for your flight back to Bali.
