Bobby’s G-Land Surf Camp

Indonesia

Overview

Grajagan is on the island of Java, but in many ways it’s an extension of Bali. Access is through Bali either overland or by the fast boat known as the “G-land Express”.

Everything falls out of the spotlight eventually, but G-land is still just as perfect a wave as it has ever been and is still one of the ultimate destinations/challenges for international surfers who want to test their skills in serious surf.

In what was once a formidable jungle with no running water or electricity, today Bobby’s Surf Camp has Internet access, rooms with air conditioning, a “games bungalow” and services such as massages and chefs preparing deliciously filling meals.

Unique Accommodations

Accommodations

Bobby’s Surf Camp is an outpost of civilization on the edge of a wild jungle and rugged reef. After more than 30 years of operation, the G-land facilities have been upgraded from being the first place to stay being a truly first class accommodation.

Make no mistake, you are in the jungle, but you are comfortable and safe. All packages include three meals per day and non-alcoholic beverages.

Upgraded packages receive beers and internet access.

Camp accommodation ranges from high to low.

The Standard Package puts guests in tree houses with two single beds. Each room is fan cooled, with 24-hour electricity and shared bathroom facilities.

The Deluxe Package houses guests in simple, comfortable bungalows. Each bungalow is furnished with queen size beds draped with mosquito nets to assure your comfort. Each bungalow has two beds, cold running water, cooling fans and 24-hour electricity.

The Superior Package houses guests in a Private Villa that has a private bathroom with hot and cold running water, air conditioning, international and local TV, room service and mini-bar. If you are accustom to a bit of luxury or traveling with a non-surfing companion, this is the way to go.

Surf & Seasons

The Surf

The ideal season for G-land is May through October. This is the dry season, when trade winds blowing from the southeast groom raw southern hemisphere swell wrapping onto the reef at Grajagan creating some of the most perfect waves on the planet.

G-land is big, long, fast, hollow, consistent and lacks nothing.

This wave wraps and winds and barrels forever and ever. To make it from the top to the bottom is an experience that surfers return for year after year.

Grajagan is an enormous left hand reef, where long interval swell from the Southern Ocean lines up and unloads over coral and lava in several distinct sections: Kong’s, Moneytrees, Launching Pad, Speed Reef/Speedies, Chickens and 20/20s.

These sections of the reef all have very distinct and legendary characteristics but the important thing to understand about G-land is it is generally not for longboarders and definitely not for beginners.

Kong’s is the top of the reef, a wave that is not as long or hollow as the sections down the line. Kong’s is rarely less than three feet and is the most user friendly part of the wave, unless the swell is giant.

Moneytrees is the money part of the wave: a long, tubing section that is good up to eight feet.

Launching Pads is an outer reef that pops up on bigger swells and leads to Speed Reef: Fickle, but a 200-yard long barrel that can keep a surfer locked inside the barrel for as long as 12 seconds.

Down from Speed Reef, 20-20s and Chickens are softer waves for those getting their speed legs. And a couple miles inside the bay, Tiger Trails is a right-hander for envious regular foots. But be careful on the walk, it’s called “Tiger Trails” for a reason.

Synopsis:

From December through February the west/north-west trades blow offshore on the right-breaking reefs of the eastern coast. March and April are transition months into the dry season when winds are often light and variable. During these months ocean conditions are glassy with some infrequent and scattered rain showers.

May through early October sees the dry season with little rain and consistent east/southeast winds blowing offshore along the west coast and that long series of lefts running down the Bukit Peninsula from Outside Corner Ulus to Kuta Beach.

May to October is the best season for Grajagan, when the regular southeast trade winds meet up with Indian Ocean groundswells.

October and November are again transitional months when the rain will start to return and the winds will go slack as they rotate back to northwest.

The weather is warm and humid year round; lows may get into the low/mid 70’s, and highs into the upper 80’s. 

Water temperatures are mid 70’s to low 80’s following the same pattern as the air temperatures.
