Surfers from all over the world have recognized how fantastic the waves are in G-Land and how exotic the location of G-Land. Lots of professional surfers are willing to spend more than 20 hours traveling to reach the G-Land. The G-Land, nicknamed "The Seven Giant Waves Wonder" has big, consistent and high waves. It's quite common to see waves with heights reaching up to 6 meters tall.

G-Land waves are very long, barreling left hand reef/point break breaks along the east side of Grajagan Bay. G-Land waves are considered one of the world's best left hand waves. G-Land's wave becomes shallower and critical the further down the point one rides the wave. It is one of the most consistently rideable waves in the world in season, with offshore tradewinds and often plentiful swell between the months of April to October. The G-Land surf break has been divided up into several sections. First one, at the top of the point is called "Kongs," which breaks up to several hundred metres in length, and can hold quite large sizes (from about 2 to 12 feet+, Hawaiian scale). It is not usually a barrel, nor  genuinely world-class, but more a series of takeoff zones with some long wall sections, although it can also barrel on occasions. This is also where surfers can find the 'key-hole' which is a section of the reef that allows a more forgivable paddle out. This section picks up a lot of swell, and is rarely less than 3 feet, and can be a saviour when the rest of the point is too small. This wave can sometimes link up with the next section called "Moneytrees." Moneytrees works from about 2 to 10 feet (Hawaiian scale, or about 4 to 20 feet wave faces), usually breaking over several hundred metres, and is a long, testing, barreling, world-class wave. The barrels become more critical the lower the tide and the larger the swell. Moneytrees may also occasionally link up with the next section called "Speedies," with an outside takeoff section between the two called "Launching Pads." "Launching Pads" can catch the surfer offguard, as it can break a significant way out to sea in larger swells. "Speedies" (named after how fast the wave breaks) is the heaviest wave at G-Land, but can be a perfect, very round barrel for several hundred metres, rideable from about 2 to 8 feet+ (Hawaiian scale). It is not common to ride a wave more than about 300–400 metres at G-Land, even though the section of the point where rideable waves break is considerably longer (over 1 km long), because the waves usually don't link up with each other.

Jack's Surf Camp at G-Land is the closest accommodation to G-Land's favorite surfing location. When other surfers have to spend up to 1km more, guests staying at Jack's Surf Camp only need to walk out through the camp's gate to get off heading towards the best surfing location in G-Land.
