G-LAND'S FAME COMES FROM NOT ONLY BEING THE FIRST ESTABLISHED SURFCAMP EVER, BUT ALSO BEING LOCATED IN A REMOTE AND WILD ENVIRONMENT WITH ONE OF SURFING’S BEST LEFT-HAND BARRELS.
Discovered in 1972, it's located on the southeastern tip of Java in Alas Purwo National Park.
Since building the first camp in 1976, the facilities and services have grown with the times to host guests in comfort and charm that’s kept a loyal guestlist coming back for decades. In the beginning years only the main sections of the 2-kilometer reef (Kongs, Moneytrees, and Speedies) were surfed and captured the interests of highly experienced or highly daring surfers. But since then another 5 kilometers of waves further into the bay have been found, opening up the wave selection to include playful and performance-style lefts and rights.
G-Land's consistency of swell and offshore winds is likely unrivaled by any other spot. From April through October, considered Indonesia’s dry season, the combination of regional tradewinds, a very active southern Indian Ocean, plus G-Land’s proximity to a deep finger of the Sunda Trench make the point a serious swell-magnet that produces conditions to easily give one the best trip of their life.
