RE: G-land

Do it mate.  I went last year with a bunch of guys who were way better than me, spent the week surfing with a US guy I met there, surfed Kongs till it got to 7-8 foot and Tiger Tracks after that, when Money Trees was too full on for me, and it was fine.  When it's small - say less than 4 foot - Kongs is still a good surf, when it's 4-8 foot Kongs is deeper than Money Trees so safer and less full on, and when it's over 8 foot at G Land then Tiger Tracks was loads of fun and about 3-4 foot.  Also a weird thing, even when it was huge - it got to 15 foot one day - Speedies and 20-20 didn't break at all, due to swell direction - was there in May.  Stayed at Bobby's, was v good, great food and lots of choice about price level.

Located on the south east 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 is famous for it’s large and powerful surf, but there are waves of much less consequence that surfer’s have the option of playing with. Bobby’s Surf Camp is the first and original camp at G-Land, operating for more than 30 years and popular by surf legends from the US and Australia. During our stay in the camp in May, I was surprised to meet also several experienced surfers from Hawaii, coming there regularly during that time of the year.

Mike what size boards did you bring or recommend for those types of conditions.  What would be the smallest board you think you could ride there on those 4-8 ft days?

I know everyone is different just wanted to hear your opinion.  Thanks

Hi Board horder,
Im not mike but have been to g-land many times. for the smaller days i like a board a bit fishy less than 5'11 down to 5'8 im 5'10 and 70kg.
Shred sleds and jim banks mk4 will work well at g-land on the smaller days and heaps of paddle speed.
When its double over plus you can go smaller if you have a snub up pinny, kind of in the vain of shred sled king or rusty slayer around 6'0.
Or formula energy alien step up.
These style boards are great for travel as they reduce so much length and are so versatile.

RE: G-land

if you're not into those snub up style boards you should  ride something with a little extra thickness and length around 66 to 7'0 for the 8 foot days and 6'3- 66 for the 4-6 foot days.
Depemnding on section surfed. speedies is just a freight train pit, not much room for moves just tubes. but it  only works once every few weeks kind of thing.
