PANAITAN ISLAND, WEST JAVA, INDONESIA
Just Dreaming Surf Charters has one mission; getting their guests uncrowded perfection every trip. From hollow, powerful rights to the most perfect rippable left point breaks in the world, West Java and Panaitan island would have to be one of the Least crowded areas for surf in Indonesia.

“Thanks for the epic trip, great waves, great people and the crew looked after us real good from serving up delicious food, ferrying us back out into the lineup after a long ride, taking some of the best photos and stitching us up when things went wrong. Everything about Panaitian island is special. I can’t recommend this trip more highly. Thanks for everything.”
The trip was great, good solid waves, nice people on the boat and some fun in jakarta on the lay over waiting for the plane, most of the crew kept the beers down to three or four a day so surfing was all priority and we scored some great waves. (and some reef scars), thanks for all your help getting it together, nothing missed a beat.
