February Update from Aura Surf Resort Sumatra|

Let us take a moment to introduce you to Swell Monkey. He has been known to show up at Aura on the odd occasion. Usually he prefers the wee hours of the night and enjoys a staple liquid diet. He has a reputation for getting good laughs, leaving you with a nasty headache, but best of all, his appearance results in pumping surf the next morning. Who is Swell Monkey, where does he come from,what is he? Well lets just say… there’s a little bit of Swell Monkey in all of us smile


A rare daytime photo of Swell Monkey in action and a likely candidate for National Geographics ” animals in action ” photo of the year.

This wave was only surfed for the first time last year, named after visiting guest pro surfer Connor Coffin. A short, fast, below sea level sucky super fun barrel, try saying that fast.

The Peak right looking very nice. In the past we have showcased a lot of the Peaks barreling lefts, but the right definitely servres up its fair share.

Ryzphoto our resident photographer can get you a shot like this during your stay at Aura- you too can tell your grand kids about the good ol days when you could surf.

The ever reliable peak delivered some of the most perfect conditions this Feb.

The Peak right is perfect for splitting the crew and offering wackable walls like this. A recent guest decides to see what all the fuss is about.

From where you’d rather be. Not only do we have an incredible peak at our fingertips, but also the perfect place to watch the sunset:

Perhaps the most familiar site during your stay. The perfect A frame Peak at your doorstep, banana pancakes await your return:

One second you’re in line with the horizon, the next below sea level, Coffins getting deep.

Just think about how many groms you would have to battle at your local for a bit of beach perfection like this. Did we mention locals don’t surf here?

This is our 9m speedboat Ombak Bagus, it seats 10 people and is responsible for taking people to the waves of their lives- fast!

If you want to see why we are fast gaining a reputation as one of the top newcomer resorts in the scene, take advantage of our Last Minute Special, offering you a saving of 15% on accommodation for your stay this March,Be fast to book, places are filling up, no surprise when you see this months awesome pics, snapped by our returning resident photographer Ryan Williams aka Ryzphoto.
