Hi Lauren

If you like nature and traditional, you can stay in Sumatra - Pulau Nias or Mentawai, check it out first on web.
Indonesia has many beautiful beaches to stay and it has good and different waves. Each island has different culture, your choice...
I have interest of surfing and want to joing a class. Pitty we dont have surfing class in Jakarta!!
Planned to go to Batu Karas (Pangandaran), heard it has good waves and has trainer and rental board =D

Ok, welcome to Indonesia, enjoy and have fun!

Cheers

Hi,

I just moved to jakarta. I'm not really into surfin, more kitesurfing g (i've got to start surfing one day...). I was wondering if you guys know good places near jakarta where the wind is strong enough to kite. I know the south is quite windy during hte south west monsoon, but how about the north east monsoon ?

I know a guy in jakarta who can take you to some pretty uncrowded world class waves near jakarta and anywhere south of bandung to pandandaran for around 200 000 rp per day per person including food. one is world class sleeping in a large tent in front of the wave (offshore in SE trades)

Trips to penaitan as well for around $200 each for a week(five people)
he can pick you up at the airport in jakarta or even if the waves are small go instead to see wildlif or go party and meet cool people( and cute girls from many places)..i wasnt having that great a time in jakarta till i met this guy. Introduced me to Steve and the coconuts and had a blast after that.
