During the retreat, you will be accommodated at Bobby’s Surf Camp, an outpost of civilization located on the edge of a wild jungle and beautiful reef. After more than 30 years of operation, the G-Land facilities have been upgraded from being the first place to stay into a truly first class accommodation. Even though you are in the jungle, you are comfortable and safe.

There are two options for this surf and yoga trip: deluxe and superior. You can decide on the style of accommodation you want for the week.

Deluxe

The deluxe option is a two-story bungalow that has an en suite cold water bathroom which is quite refreshing in the tropical heat. There is a lounge space on the first floor, an air-conditioned sleeping quarters, and open-aired balcony on the second floor.

Superior

The superior option is the largest bungalow complete with an en suite hot water bathroom, mini-refrigerator, hot water kettle, satellite TV and DVD player, and air-conditioned sleeping quarters. If you are accustomed to some simple comforts or traveling with a non-surfing companion, this is the way to go.

This retreat will allow you to surf, stretch, explore the jungle, and relax. If you are coming for yoga, then do yoga, but if you are coming to surf and are not inclined to stretch it out, that's also fine. You are encouraged to feel that you have the freedom and flexibility to do whatever it is you dream of doing.

The jungle is always an inspiring and unforgettable healing space. It's perfect for yoga and meditation. Kori Hahn is joining along to support you for your daily yoga and meditation sessions throughout the week. With a mixture of Vinyasa flow style classes to healing Yin or Restorative classes, you are sure to leave the week feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. Since this trip is built for surfers, the yoga schedule will be flexible and based on the tides and winds. All yoga levels are welcome and Santosha Society is happy to cater to your needs.

Though it's without a doubt a boy's world out in Grajangan Bay, you and the other girls will take it over for a week and make it a girls' surf and yoga trip to G-Land.

Fiona Peters will also join you for the week not only as a well-seasoned G-Land visitor but as a professional photographer. She has been returning to G-Land year after year because she wholeheartedly loves it. She will capture the week adventure from the water as well as from the shore.

Natural adventures

When you are heading into the jungle, the options of natural adventures are endless. The park’s name, Alas Purwo National Park, means first forest or ancient forest, in accordance with a Javanese legend that says that the earth first emerged from the ocean. It's a magical and natural paradise.

Surfing

In Alas Purwo National Park, G-Land offers an unforgettable adventure experience for all level of surfers (except first timers). One of the most famous surf breaks in the world, G-Land has been featured in nearly every single surf publication that has ever existed. G-Land’s main wave is postcard perfect and not for the faint of heart. The main reef of Grajagan Bay has a handful of breaks for the most experienced of surfers, the chargers. There are a lot more breaks on the inside of the bay that most don’t even know about and rarely surf. These waves range in style from small sloped-out long-board waves to trestles-like performance waves.

A very long, world-class, barreling left hand reef or point break breaks along the east side of Grajagan Bay. It has long been considered one of the world’s best left hand waves. The correct name of the point upon which the main wave breaks is “plengkung.” The wave becomes shallower and more critical the further down the point one rides the wave. It is one of the most consistently rideable waves in the world in season, with offshore tradewinds and often plentiful swell between the months of mid-April to mid-October. It is a place every surfer dreams to watch, if not surf.

The G-Land surf break has been divided up into several sections. The first, at the top of the point, is called “kongs,” which breaks up to several hundred meters in length and can hold quite large sizes. It is not usually a barrel, nor genuinely world-class, but more a series of takeoff zones with some long wall sections, although it can also barrel on occasions. This is also where surfers can find the ‘key-hole’ which is a section of the reef that allows a more forgivable paddle out. This section picks up a lot of swell, rarely less than three feet, and is a savior when the rest of the point is too small. Then there are “money trees”, “speedies”, and “launching pads” in the same area of the bay. There are also a few other, smaller waves further down and within the bay, such as “chickens,” “20/20,” and “tiger tracks.”

There are amazing Balinese massages that you can book for approximately 10 USD.
