Summary
This legendary surf camp offers the highest quality service, accommodation and food that await your arrival. The surrounding area has an abundance of exotic wild life, natural settings and best of all – world class surf!

G-Land is a consistent wave. At three foot (head high) it is fun, but at six foot (double overhead) and bigger it gets serious, and exceptionally good. G-Land is only for experienced surfers.
Quick Facts

      • world-class surf
      • suitable for serious surfers
      • jungle as a back-drop
      • great atmosphere
      • secluded location

The original G-Land surf camp is Bobby's, and it is still a great place to stay and surf the legendary wave. Getting to G-Land is quite an experience if you take the overland option. If you’re willing to pay a bit more, you can take the more pleasant fast boat straight from Bali to G-land. Transfers are arranged by your surf experience specialist at The Perfect Wave when you book.


Besides the famous and challenging surf break G-Land, there is Launching Pads, right up the top of the last section, Speedies. Speedies is where G-Land becomes really serious. Water drains off the reef to create a top-to-bottom barrel that detonates onto the shallow coral reef below. Speedies is fast, and the barrels are big. 


It isn’t possible to ride a wave the entire length of G-Land - it doesn’t link up. When G-Land is 10 foot (four to five times overhead), other waves in the area such as 20/20’s, Chickens and a right-hander called Tiger Tracks will be three foot (head-high).


On high tide, you can get the boat to drop you in the line up. On low tide you paddle, if you time it right you can sneak out between Kong’s and Money trees without any hassle. Paddle out with someone who knows what they’re doing the first time you attempt it.


There are no tigers in the jungle these days, despite the stories, and the only thing bigger then the barrels at G-Land might be the rats. The perfect wave and jungle setting at Grajagan creates an atmosphere where you feel you are almost living in some sort of surfing fantasy land.


Some of the first Surfers to G-Land, Mike and Bill Boyum, sure felt a connection from their first trips to G-land and immediately fell in love with the dream surfing experience! It was this mesmerizing attraction to the location that spawned their idea of a surf camp. Soon a vision to build a surfing nirvana began. Through hard work, good timing, and a friend named Bobby Radiasa, these two brothers made their surf dreams areality. Bobby owns and operates the camp better than ever now. His operational vision focuses on keeping the original dream a reality. Now for more than 30 years, the G-land experience of great friends, great food, friendly service, and of course wave riding bliss continues.

Glen (October 2016)
Bruno was awesome organised our trip by phone on our way to airport. Everything was seamless. Best last minute trip ever!

Nathan (September 2016)
It's so easy with The Perfect Wave, every thing organised for you.

James (August 2016)
I tend to go on two to three surf trips per year out of Australia and since I have started using TPW I have had such a great experience with TPW on all my trips.

When I was booking my own trips without help there was always a disaster waiting that was unexpected. TPW organizes everything so well and make my life back "in reality" much better and less stressful when planning my surf trips.

I will talk to my normal agent (Bruno Parodi) and tell him what kind of waves I am looking for on this trip and the time of year I can get away (eg, big perfect barrels to test myself during a certain time of year, or perfect mellow ripple-able waves) and Bruno, through his knowledge, has done a great job guiding me every time.

I am on happy/sunburnt camper when I come back!

Adam (October 2015)
The Perfect Wave team were great! Service, response times and knowledge of the areas were second to none.
The crew at Bobby's were fantastic. I will be back next year!

Corey (May 2015)
We had a great trip and enjoyed our time at Bobby's camp. Id definitely go back again.

Jared (March 2015)
From the first contact I made with Charlie he had everything undercontrol. from dealing with the surf camp, travel insurance and gathering all information I asked for. which made it a stress free booking.
everything went so smoothly from booking the trip to arriving at the camp.

Wow! Bobbys Gland surf camp was an amazing surf experience. As soon as I arrived at the camp, I was welcomed by Jacki and the crew and just stepped into surfing nirvana. The wave itself is on such an epic scale it has to be seen to be believed and paddling out at 6ft money trees for the first time is something you will never forget. In contrast to the wildness of Gland is the sound of the jungle in the morning. So peacefull and tranquil it lulls the senses and adds a little magic to the experience. So thanks Perfect Wave and thaks to the crew at Bobbys Gland Surf camp

We all had a fantastic time. My first week at G-Land was pretty awesome, and while the "real" G-Land wave wasn't really lining up properly, Tiger Tracks on my own or with one other guy was going off. I got very lucky with the accom - for the first three nights they had over-booked so I was upgraded to a superior room, and I was sharing with a great guy from a suburb here in Vic that's about half an hour away from us. We even had mutual friends! All the transfers worked smoothly, and apart from one really, really drunk guy on the boat on the way over, everything was on schedule. Scored some great waves, and had a great time.

I returned back to Alice Springs from a trip on which I met Jamie, I called him the day I got back and asked if he could get me to G-land within 3 days because it looked as though a swell was going to hit it. Jamie and his staff pulled out all stops, checked the swell reports and got me to Grajagan, staying at Bobby's within 3 days of my call. Scored some excellent waves, food was great and met some great people, all in all an epic surf trip - thanks guys & gals.Terry - Alice Springs
