Here are some of the factors:
On a good day at G-Land, the wave is so perfect that some of the world's best surfers have gone so
far as to call it "boringly perfect." There are no sudden, nasty surprises. An average surfer might spend
a whole day at five-foot G-Land surfing Money Trees (the middle section) without falling off once. And
then say to himself: "How the hell did I do that?" Because it's perfect - that's how. And uniform: waves
break where you think they will, not somewhere else.
The waves are always long, but when G-Land is cranking, the three main sections (Kong's, Money Trees and
Speedies) can link up into one great big freight train, and it's a very long train. It's an awesome
line-up at any size.
G-land is hollow. As the swell wraps around the headland, it can build in size as it passes through
Kong's to Money Trees and on to the shallows of Speedies. It gets hollower and faster ... and you can
either get deeply slotted or race the freight train. The barrel potential of Grajagan is definitely
G-Land is totally swell-exposed and will break, nicely, at virtually any size. Onshore days are almost
unheard of. In season you'll be unlikely to get an unrideable day in a fortnight's stay. No other wave
matches that description.
Miles from anywhere. In the middle of a fauna rich national park that maybe still contains tigers
- and certainly did not long ago - it is the very definition of jungle. Grajagan is a rumble in the
jungle. Nothing matches it for sheer exotica.
