When is a good time for Surfing?

East Sumba, Kalala, has surf all year round. Like the rest of Indonesia, we are graced with long range high period swell from May - October. During this period we also get the east trade wind. This has a negative effect on most of the right hand point and reef breaks but is cross to offshore on the lefts. This is due to the reef being u shaped.From November to April we enjoy mostly smaller short period swell. Wind is generally mellow but we also have a very good west wind season at this time. The west wind is very predictable and generally does not effect us due to the west being offshore for most of the right hand breaks of cross to cross onshore for the lefts.We have around 25 spots to choose from within a 20min radius.
