I've plan to go to Roti island in May next year. I've try to track some info about this island but apparently nobody knows a lot about it... I've seen so far a couple of pictures and read somes very light waves descriptions...
Have you ever been there? Is it expencive?
How much is it to reach this island form Bali or Jakarta?

THERE IS SOME SURF, BUT THE PROBLEM IS THEY HAVE A SMALLER SWELL WINDOW SO ITS FLAT A LOT, BALI GETS HEAPS MORE WAVES. ALSO IT IS PRETTY HARD TO GET TO FROM TIMOR.

I went there on a boat trip some years back and got some very big surf 2-4x overhead (a couple of days to big) with good shape but dangerous so good idea for travel insurance in case of accident. Real fun wave @ head high to dbl over head.
