THE ACTIVITIES

Surfing

G-Land is arguably one of the world’s best left-hander, known for its established offshore trade winds. From March to November, the Indian Ocean generates strong swells, providing G-Land with one of the world’s most consistent breaks. There are 7 surf breaks in G-Land and the 3 most famous ones are Kong, Money Trees and Speedies. Surfers are taken daily by boat from the Surf Camp to the most suitable break according to their level and the swell conditions of the day.

 

The skilled surfers will find themselves in deep barrels with perfect walls reeling down this endless point. They will definitely score some of the longest rides of their lives. The stunning breaks of G-Land were the stage for the ASP World Championship three years in a row.

 

G-Land (Grajagan) is truly one of the worlds great waves, perfect mechanical barrelling waves, not a drop of water out of place – makes your mouth dry just thinking about it. If you are a keen on left handers, what are you still doing reading this page? Pack your bags, your next barrel is waiting for you!

LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

Located on the Southeast tip of Java, along the eastern shoreline of Gragajan Bay in a large jungle preserve called Alas Purwo National Park, G-Land offers an unforgettable adventure experience for all level of surfers, except first timers.

 

G-Land Java is situated in a very large National Park, and is home to many different species of wild life including panthers, leopards, monkeys, deers, reptiles and exotic birds. It’s an amazing place where you really feel that you have made it off the beaten track.

Getting Here

 

G-LAND NEW SPEED BOAT

 

Riding the G-Land Express (included in our packages). Your trip to G-land departs from Kuta Reef in the early morning, tide-dependant but typically around 6:00 A.M. Our speed boat has been purpose-built for the Bali-Java passage to handle the crossing in comfort and with absolute security for passenger safety.

 

The boat is outfitted with four 250 HP four-stroke Suzuki outboard engines, full marine electronics (radar, GPS, and marine VHF radio), compass, on-board toilet, comfortable seating, life jackets, and fire extinguisher. We take pride in having the most capable vessel that does this passage to G-Land.

 

The G-land Express will cross the Bali Strait in comfort and style in about 2 hours and you’ll arrive at the Surf Camp refreshed and ready to surf.

 

WHAT TO BRING

  • At least 2 surfboards. Preferably 3 surfboards (all rounder, mini-gun, gun). There are good ding repairers in G-Land who can fix snaps and creases, but of course you need a board while it’s getting fixed.
  • Springsuit, short-john, wetsuit or vest/jacket.
  • Reef Booties
  • Sun Protection: Good sunblock and zinc. Even surfing hats and sunglasses if you are easily burned by the sun. The glare gets really bad in the afternoons.
  • Warm water wax
  • At least 2 leashes, including a longer bigger wave leash.
  • Small money for any random purchases, ding repairs, laundry, etc. Note that there also is a credit card facilities in the Surf Camp also.
  • Books, crossword puzzles, magazines. 
  • Camera, laptop, drone. 
  • Insect repellant, light trousers & long sleeve top for early mornings and evenings
  • Sunglasses

MALARIA

G-Land is not well known for having Malaria, but travelling in Indonesia always means a small risk of getting it. From June to September the climate is very dry and the mosquitos are rarely noticeable. On the other hand, during March, April, May, October and November, it rains a lot more and the mosquitos are more common. We recommend you to always use insect repellant and to wear long sleeves and pants in the mornings and evenings, especially during the rain periods. All Bungalows in the Surf Camp have mosquito nets covering the beds, so you will sleep in peace without being bothered. G-Land is not like Lombok, Sumbawa and Mentawai where malaria is more common, so hopefully you will have nothing to worry about.

INJURIES

G-Land have some gnarly waves on coral Reef, like Speedies, which means that injuries are possible to occur. The most common type of injuries are cuts and scrapes from hitting the reef somehow. The Surf Camp has a manager and spiritual priest, Puma, that is highly skilled and experienced with stitching cuts and wounds caused by the reef. The Camp also has a lot of medical supplies and at many times there are doctors staying in G-Land as well, so in case of small injuries you will be good taken care of.

If the injury is more serious as in breaking a bone, dislocating a shoulder and so on, there is availability of a Helipad. A helicopter will be arranged through your travel insurance that will transport you to a hospital in Bali that has western standards.
