Windsurfing Rote

Jason Polakow visited a few years ago and defined windsurfing perfection by going out at T-Land and found tricky wind, but perfect waves. T-land is for expert windsurfers only, and generally not windsurf friendly, the surfers can still enjoy the clean waves even with 30+ knots of wind.

There are other spots in the area where you are not interfering with the surfers though

Wing foiling (wing surfing)
Great conditions

Because of the offshore winds at Nemberala, it ccreates pretty flat water. Bring your own wingfoiling gear, get out with a boat and learn to wingfoil.
