Ndao Surf Guide

Ndao in Timor is a reasonably exposed reef break that does not work very often. May-Oct (Dry Season) is the best time of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the east northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. There is a left breaking reef. It very rarely gets crowded here. Rocks are a hazard.
