Experience the remote un-crowded islands off West Java and the infamous Panaitan Island. Upon arriving into Jakarta you will be met and transferred to Anyer marina where you will board “Just Dreaming”. From here you will head west to the outer islands toward Panaitan island. There are many breaks in this area, very consistent lefts & rights, the most popular being the long left of One Palm Point.
Most of the breaks in this area can only be reached by boat, so this is certainly the best way to surf the area…Just Dreaming will put you in the line up at the best locations.
This trip takes you to some amazing and remote places, away from the crowds. An awesome experience. You can also relax and explore the amazing natural jungle on land, which is part of the Ujung Kulon National Park, or climb the famous Krakatoa.
There are many breaks in this area, very consistent lefts & rights, the most popular being the long left of one palm point.
Other waves include Napalms, a fun barreling left located inside the bay, Illusions, a right hand point break that is not as reckless as the left at One Palm Point, but just as perfect. There’s also a couple of mellow breaks including Pussy’s (left) and the Bommie (right). All breaks are fairly close together and easy to check out and are easily accessed by their speedboat tender. Your skipper will get you to the best waves for the given conditions.
The wet season starts in mid-October and lasts until late March-April, with the swells dropping to a more comfortable fun size coupled with some of the most uncrowded line-ups. Winds during this time are variable and glassy. Check for the low season specials during this period.
April is the beginning of dry season, which coincides with the start of the swell season. The Southern hemisphere swells start pulsing up the Indian Ocean with peak swell season being June through to September. This period also sees the winds turn to a favourable easterly direction.
Air and water temperatures range between 27-30 degrees C all year round.
