ordinary - Windy, isolated place with average waves. The turtles are cool though.

hoax - Spent time at Turles in June 2010 and was not impressed. Windy, isolated and fickle wave. Go to G-Land. Much better deal. PS. watch your belongings. You could get ripped off.

Accomodation - Check out www.batubesar.com. The accomodation is reasonable and in my opinion the food is the best in the area. Mama's used to be good until she sold it. Hexa has nice rooms and cheap, but a bit far from the surf. Dont stay at the illegal surf camps right on the beach in front of the wave 'turtles' they're built on environmentally friendly land that's there to protect the turtles habitat.

close out - FYI, turtles has been closing out ever since the end of the wet season. One of those years when sand gets pushed on the reef. Needs a lot of big swell to clean it up. May not be working till August this year. Serious.

- dont listen to these wack cases about west java. I think you shod take your own advice and stay in bali. if you want uncrouded world class waves this is the place to go. friendly as locals and a wicked vibe. 7 hours from jakarta in taxi but only 500,000 rp which is like $70 nz. Yeah the waves arnt ulus, padang padang, nias, ments quality but who wants to surf with 50 other guys. if you are sweet to the locals they are extra sweet back.. go there and experience it for yourself.

Dodge - Just want to know if anyone can confirm the fact that there's like 600 JI's in that area. I've heard this from a number of sources (including the government), and it sounds a little ominous to me. Not the best thing to know when you stick out like a sore thumb in those parts of the world...

Hello - Have to agree on what most of you have already said Not the best place to go surfing Gave it a chance stayed their for 2 weeks only surfed maybe 4 times The trade winds blow too strong as the area is the most exposed on the island of java This also means that the swells are too lumpy and are rarely clean and manageable Not good for a reef that shuts down on a bed of sea urchins
I hear G-land is the go will have to check it out next year

- blows out every day....can't handle over 4 foot...mission to get there...not to mention the terrorists breeding ground down there..some o.k waves in between though
