Just Dreaming Surf Charters - Panaitan Island, West Java


Just Dreaming was the first surf charter boat operating in the West Java and Panaitan Island Region and has been operating in the area for more than 25 years.

Skipper Ismanto has unsurpassed knowledge of the West Java region. First sailing Just Dreaming from Bali to West Java. Manto has worked on the boat for over 20 years and has seen more waves out at Panaitan Island than possibly anyone in the world. A highly experienced lifeguard, fisherman, spear fishermen, free diver, mechanic and surfer he knows the area like the back of his hand so you will be in the best possible hands. 

Cook Ito is perhaps the most valuable crew member to the guests serving excellent food, non-stop for ravenous surfers. Feeding charter after charter of starving surfers for this time, Ito is definitely doing something right! His specialty? Catch yourself a Yellowfin and shortly after he'll present you with wasabi seasoned sashimi and a cold Bintang... he'll be your new best friend!

Deck-hand, mechanic, tender driver, cleaner and cook's assistant Nomo compliments the crew. Having been with Just Dreaming for years, Nomo also knows Just Dreaming and West Java incredibly well and will do all in his power to help you have an incredible trip. Always busy and always working, he makes his way around the boat without you even noticing and is pivotal in making your stay as enjoyable as possible. 

In addition to the crew, Just Dreaming comes with a zodiac (free of charge) for all surf transfers. So no extra paddling for you, get dropped off and picked up in the surf by our crew and save your strength for the waves.
