COOKING waves at G-land…

The waves have been pumping, a couple of 6-8 foot days, boards are being broken, leashes snapped, heads have hit the reef, but most of all, everyone’s been getting big barrelling G-land. Ryan is so bummed about his board he won’t even talk us through it, he’s just holding a bintang in one hand and […]

Jungle News…

Waves have been small but getting a little bigger and more consistent, still a fair few fun ones to be had, new swell should be hitting if we are to believe the charts… Crowds are not too bad either- people seem to be spreading their surfs out through the day and across the spots… Yoga […]

JUST say NO, kids!

Waves first… although the conditions have been perfect the swell has been lacking somewhat… some good ones at Speedies and Kongs, but not a great deal to shout about for the last day or two.. so we’ve been on chill time here… movies, massage, cheeseballs at sundown, bit of guitar playing on the jetty… life […]

The termination of an evil presence

Howzit folks Well the time has come to exit the jungle.. Yesterday conditions were very small, in the 2 – 3 ft range, thus making a normally painful departure quite bearable.. The crowd in the water consisted of day tripping Euro gliders and numerous be-helmeted darth vadar – like crash test dummies, giving the other […]

Surfing : What is the definition ??

Howzit folks Here we are again, hot, humid, torpid, sweating and full of garlic and chilli. It was a hazy day, with a persistant south wind blowing down the face causing sever wrinkles and frowns of the normal glowing faces of the G-Land waves.  Once again, there were some strange surfing antics leading us to […]

Boy George busted again in South Eastern Tip of Java

The once reformed rocker who has never learnt his lesson after his short sabbatical is back for fondling the beloving jewels of Plengkung Reserve. Much to the other wave riders disgust, his “Lawyers of Arabia” approach, attire, attitude and general arrogance nearly led to his demise. Luckily it only came down to an Aussie ritual […]
