 Additional Information

Pangandaran 's got several breaks. On the penisula is the national park with 3 reefbreaks:
Batu Lajar, on the eastside. Look for the sailshaped rock. westwind brings offshore, a longer right starting fom 7ft swell. gets mellow at hightide.
Batu Mandi, on the westside in the national parc, hollow & fast left but short & shallow. lokals call this 1 the friendly reef but it's with some sarcasm. from low to mid, allmost all the time offshore.
White Sandy beach, next to Batu Mandi, gives a long shallow left on the biggest swells. high tide only.

the sandbrakes, sandbars formed by shifting rips. The further away from the inside of the bay, the bigger the waves. best from mid to hightide. In front of Bulak Laut hotel, at Bamboo cafee and another 1 at the second blue lifeguardtower.
More west, at the jetty in front of the small airport are the biggest waves, allways double size or more. On a windless morning U can meet some powerfull waves here... don't expect company. from low to mid.

Atmosphere

uncrowded spot with some typical Javanees hospitality from the locals. the few tourist surfers are more than welcome. Cheap guesthouses, good spot for beginners. Many lokals like to show U how to start for a small price.

General

Pangandaran recovers slowly after the unknown tsunami in 2006. Some of the hotels are still ruined. But there's a warning center now, so don't hesitate to visit for this reason. This place is 1 that could use some more surfers...
