Java

What's the surf like?

West Java

As with most areas of Indonesia, West Java gets the best surf conditions during the months March through to October. Depending on where you decide to travel you have breaks which will suit you depending on your budget and your surfing ability.

The West Java area is relatively uncrowded and you will definitely get to experience that Indo perfection!  The waves in West Java are really quite under-rated and offer some of the best waves in Indo. Like any surf conditions, it's just a matter of timing.

Grajan

Grajagan is rated as one of the best left-handers in the world. When all 4 sections - Kong's, Money Trees, Launching Pads and Speedies - all link up, you'll experience one of the longest, most exhilarating most perfect waves that you'll ever surf.

You can pull into incredibly long barrels or race and carve the perfect walls. Best of all 'G-land' is ultra consistent - rideable even in small swells. When it's big, its simply awesome.
