It's at the little vilage Cisolok, a 15 min drive from the town Pelabuhanratu. There are motorbike taxis (ojek) everywhere who can take you there for about a dollar. There are also a couple of hotels next to the spot.Organise a lift from Jakarta to Cimaja town.

 Additional Information

An ok wave, powerful, but doesn't really barrel. Not really what you come to indonesia for. Gets blown out early by SE trades in the dry (swell) season.
If you leave Jakartha early on Saturday mornings around 4 am you can usually get there in about 2-3 hours depending on your driver and the weather at the time. You have to realise that you are basically driving through 30-40 million people. It is only around 160 km (100miles) but the road can be pretty dodgey. Have seen quite a few pot holes that would happily eat a Kijang no worries. I know of people who have been stuck for 6 hours on the road to Cimaja. If you are keen for a surf and haven't been for a while then it is definitely worth it but if you are planning to drive down every weekend then I think you should make your car your next best friend because you two are going to be spending a hang of a lot of time together. Also a pick spot is Suwarna with it being a further 20 mins down the road but is pretty serious and has a nice reef lurking below.

surf camp / surf school - Hello all together!
Does anybody know if there is a surf school or anything else in or around cimaja? Is there a shop where I can buy a surfboard and a wetsuit?
