Besialu (T-Land)

Keong Swirl 2.png

Of all the Rote Island surfing, T-Land is our favorite gentle giant.  We have ridiculously long walls to work, multiple take-off spots and even some challenging bowl sections on the right swell and tide. T-land has a lot of character depending on the size, and is surfable from 2ft up to as big as it gets.

T-land is broken up into roughly four take-off zones, each with their own character.  On occasion, they all connect brilliantly but, for the most part, they provide a variety of wave characters and help give you some variety in the lineup.  

With consistent swells coming our way directly from the Indian Ocean, T-land is one of the most consistent breaks anywhere in the world.  Best of all, our tradewinds mean all day offshore winds, almost every single day during the season.

Boa

Bo’a is a long right break with a steep takeoff and challenging down-the-line wall. Hide behind a curtain of oceanic turquoise and feel the world slow down as you take a trip to the green room.

With a long reef out front and an almost point-like setup, Boa operates best with mid-tide but can be surfed on any tide. Like many Rote island surfing right-hand breaks, early and late season favors Bo’a, but backed-off trade days can mean glory for this right-hander. Small fun whackable walls to heavy barreling tubes. There are beautiful opportunities and consequences.

Popular with guests trimming deep right-hand barrels at Suckies, says it all. Suckies is a right-hand barrel photo op.

 

Best on an early morning boat ride; Sucky Mamas is nothing but a barreling right. She can be frivolous and sweet, a delight at three to five feet. At six to seven-foot, with the tide moving, she goes Hawaiian style; all at once you feel fully mortal.

As always, ask and you shall receive: we can educate you on the fine art and history of Rote Island surfing's legendary Sucky Mamas. A truly unforgettable wave reached easily by boat with a Keong guide.
