Surf and explore the isolated coastlines of Panaitan Island and West Java. Our expert crew will find you the best waves while you explore two of Indonesia’s most amazing National Parks. Just Dreaming Surf Charters is the only charter boat operating in West Java and Panaitan Island area. They specialise in getting you uncrowded perfection every trip. From hollow, powerful rights to the most perfect left point breaks in the world (One Palm), West Java and Panaitan Island has it all, with no crowds.
Due to its consistency, Napalms is one of the more popular waves on the Island. It offers a more generous take off and barrel section then its older and outside brother, One Palm Point. A nice spot to put in some practise before taking on the more iconic heavier waves on the island. Napalms needs to be at least three foot to start working, otherwise it basically breaks on dry reef.
Just Dreaming started surf charters to Panaitan Island back in 1991. Ask around and see how many other charter boats have been operating continuously, for that long. That record says it all and is one of the most important things to consider when choosing any surf charter. She is an Australian built, steel hulled motor yacht with an unblemished safety record. The boat takes up to 8 surfers and has a very experienced crew with lots of local knowledge. Skipper Manto has unsurpassed knowledge of the West Java region.
The waves in West Java are some of the best in the world and Panaitan island would have to be one of the LEAST crowded areas for surf in Indonesia. The best months to surf are March through to October with early season favoring the rights and June on-wards for the lefts.
As well as the great surf out on the ocean, you can also explore the amazing natural jungle on land, which is part of the Ujung Kulon National Park, or climb the famous Krakatoa, a live volcano! Panaitan is home to an isolated population of wild deer, tigers, panthers, snakes and numerous other forms of rare and endangered wildlife.
