Hey Guys,

hi there..

the nearest surf spot to jakarta would be carita.
there r several beach u can surf there.
it's about 2 hours away from jakarta.
but don't expect waves like bali has.
or.. u could go to pelabuhan ratu.
the waves are more vary than carita.

u could check for cimaja, there're many points there.
just go for bogor from jakarta (about 40 mins) and choose
a medium bus to pelabuhan ratu (about 3-3.5 hours), then head down to cimaja for about 15 mins.

Attention those of you living in Jakarta and wanting to go surfing.
I've just moved to Jakarta as well and I'm working at a shool in the city. I've come to Indo for the waves. I live in the Lebak Bulus area Jakarta Selatan give me a shout at
Let make weekend trips happen and the longer trips to bigger and better spots a reality. Plane tickets to Bali during the October break are burning up. Let me know if you will be there.

Nearest place would be Pelabuhan Ratu area, second nearest would be Pangandaran area, but still, it's easier and faster to get to Bali by plane than drive to those 2 places. You know what guys, we should create a facebook group for surfers living in Jakarta, feel free to add me,

Thinking of going to Indo for awhile (Jan 2010) primarily to surf and learn about the culture. I teach over in Am. Samoa and thought I might be able to do the same in Indo. I'd like to live where I can surf daily. Any suggestions? Thanks, L
