Alternatively, you could mention one name to any serious surfer and they’d lead you right to it: G-Land, a popular surf spot in the same area, that has been secretly on the surfers’ radars for years, before it went mainstream, thanks to the internet.

A TRUE STORY OF A SURFERS HAVEN DISCOVERY
G-Land, the surf spot was discovered by two American brothers, Bill and Mike Boyum, in 1972 when Bill spotted the area from his plane window enroute to Bali. They soon ventured to surf there. And a new surf haven was annointed as among the world’s best left! Eventually they set up a Surf Camp, and the rest, as they say, is history. G-Land has seen some of the world’s best surfers ride its waves; Kelly Slater, Shane Dorian, Joel Fitzgerald, Taj Burrow, Jamie O’Brien, Gerry Lopez, Peter McCabe, Ozzy Wright and many others.

Bills’s son Cyrus was literally born with G-Land in his DNA. Born in Hawaii, never venturing far from water. Cyrus is based in Indonesia, where he has spent much of his adult life.
