Boa Surf Guide

Boa in Timor is a fairly exposed reef break that usually has waves. May-Oct (Dry Season) is the favoured time of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the north northwest. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. A reef breaks right. It very rarely gets crowded here. Watch out for rocks.
