The best barrels in the world, with no crowds.

Just Dreaming Surf Charters - Panaitan Island, West Java. We specialise in getting our guests uncrowded perfection every trip. From hollow, powerful rights to the most perfect left point breaks in the world and secluded reef breaks that peel and fire like finely tuned machines. It's an island of dreams.


The Waves

Check out the absurd amount of waves on offer in this amazing part of the world. Dozens of spots suited to all ability levels and we're generally the only boat around all year!


Your home away from home... in paradise. An air-conditioned, 50ft cutter-rigged ketch, powered by a 98HP Ford diesel, with all the mod-cons, taking anywhere up to a maximum of 8 surfers.


10 - 12 days surfing and exploring the isolated coastlines of Panaitan Island and West Java. Our expert crew find you the best waves and conditions, dependent on your ability and desires.


Want to know if the last trip scored? Or want to know how it was this time last month? Or last year? Then check in with the crew right here for updates, news, photos direct from the captain.

"Thanks for the epic trip , great waves, great people and Johnno 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. Thanks also to Todd for setting it all up and being in constant contact with us until we were safely on the boat. I cant recommend this trip more highly. thanks for everything.”
