Waves in G-Land
Known as one of the best left hander in the World, G Land is also one of Indonesia’s most consistent spot – it is rare when the waves at G Land are smaller than 6-ft. Its lava reef carves as a big circle of 10 miles around the Bay of Grajangan, making of it a natural wave pool with an array of different waves and sections. G Land is mostly known for 3 sections. First comes Kong’s, then Money Trees followed by Speedies.
Kong’s is the most consistent and playful of all, it doesn’t necessarily barrels on all waves offering room for turns and carving. As the tide comes up, the peak and the shape of the waves will shift. It breaks in relatively deeper water than the other sections and forgives mistakes more than its sisters.
If you’ve seen footage of Gerry Lopez back in the days, it must have been on the section of Money Trees, an almond-shaped barrel wave that works best with a south-west swell.
Speedies is the ultimate barrel reward of Indonesia. It is not for all. It will need a 8-foot swell forecast with a southern angle to start breaking. Take off deep and pump through that barrel until you find the exit.
Although the month of May is considered as early season, we can expect wave up to 10-foot on the good days, with an average day at 5-6 foot.
Don’t be ashamed to bring a helmet and reef boots for the bigger days.

Which surfboard should you bring?
We recommend bringing at least 2 surfboards, 3 is better. On solid days (8ft+), G Land is mostly surfed from 6,8 to 7,5 ft. allowing you to take off earlier and go down the face of the wave. We recommend bringing your regular surfboard, together with one or two step-up boards.
