the Wave of
G-LAND SURF TRIP
Seeking adventure and to surf in world class waves!? G-lands surf has long been considered one of the world’s best left-hand waves.
Located in the isolated jungles of Alas Purwo National Park, East Java- it is nature’s kind creation of one of the worlds most consistently ride-able waves in the dry season. Book our 3 or 5 full day advanced surf trip to G-land, Java to enjoy offshore trade-winds and plentiful swells between the months of March to October.
G-lands main point break Plengkung is rarely less than 3 feet Hawaii and amongst seven sections that make up legendary G-Land surf. It is pure bliss for any advanced surfer who enjoys hollow waves breaking perfectly on an Indonesian reef.
FOR ADVANCED SURFERS
With a Dawn Patrol start, we surf in beach break left and rights at our base-camp, and head out by traditional boat to the G-land line-up for full days of surfing. Depending on the kind of waves you are chasing, the area of G-land gathers surf options for different styles of surf so we adapt to surfers ability and preference. Left-hander breaks include; Kongs, Moneytrees, Speedies, Launching Pads & Tiger Tracks. Regular footers will also be greeted by some surprises with seriously long right hand gems at a less known location.

MORE ABOUT SURFING G-LAND, EAST JAVA
Geological Serendipity had to be at play when creating G-Land: one of the planet’s most iconic waves. Swell created by SE trade winds between April to October, heads towards the SE tip of Java where all the requirements are in exactly the right place. The kilometer plus stretch of perfect surf conditions is a total freak of nature: Firstly, the shore is capped by immense coral reef. Secondly, there is extremely deep water not far offshore created by the Java Trench that guarantees power. Swell is therefore rarely an issue in this part of the Indian Ocean. Then the reef’s extreme exposure, guarantees it is usually 3ft bigger than anywhere in Bali. Finally the curve of Grajagan Bay is in the exact direction of the offshore E-SE trades to kiss perfect waves clean and glassy.
This Java wave in Indonesia is a global benchmark for consistent, hollow running reef-break surf to be measured, with favourable weather conditions and abundance of long period groundswell. Just writing about it gets us excited about Java’s surf!
OUR G-LAND SURF GUIDES
Our surf guides Akaa and Dono originally from Java are a highlight of the trip. Akaa, described to be a fantastic energy and cheerleader in the water is an equal enjoyment along with the endless G-land surf. Dono is right at home in G-Land. It is his second home with his family living in the region. Between their inside knowledge and experience, we are able to enjoy a quiet location in the national park away from the land surf camps and use local boats to head out to the waves each day. Together, our surf guides offer the perfect balance of fun, surf and Java culture.
