North Sumatra Aura Surf Resort – North Sumatra

Book your Aura Surf Resort, North Sumatra with World Surf Adventures.

At Aura Surf Resort, your surf experience starts with a short paddle out to a consistent epic right peak directly in front of the resort’s beachfront parkland.  Just grab your board and paddle out.  As you relax and recharge after a session, you can watch your friends get barrelled from the Resort’s classic lounge surf hut or from the veranda of your bungalow.

The Resort offers 4 traditional and comfortable bungalows constructed of local hardwood and thatched palm roofing, elevated over a pristine white sandy beach, with space for fourteen guests. If you wish larger and more private accommodation, a deluxe bungalow is available with its own veranda and freestanding bathroom facilities. Aura Surf Resort provides modern comfort amenities such as bar, dining area, TV and DVD and plenty of sprawl and chill areas.  You certainly won’t go hungry, as the resort offers favourite Indonesian and Western dishes that cater to vegetarians and vegans as well.  Fresh seafood, combined with locally sourced organic vegetables and fruits, will nourish you before, between, and after your soul-satisfying surf sessions.

If you want to surf at Aura Resort then talk to us. No one has more local knowledge and expertise about where the best surf spots are in North Sumatra. We will make sure you have the best surf experience of your life.

In addition to the resort’s home peak, there are over ten secret spots, ranging from easy beach breaks to 15 foot grinding barrels.  The resort’s experienced crew will know which spot is breaking best and will get you there.  For comfortable quick strike missions to the outer breaks, hop on the Ombak Bagus, the resort’s 27-foot canopied speedboat equipped with twin 100 hp Yamaha outboards and safety equipment. Zipping at speeds of 30 knots, the Ombak Bagus can get you to the best spot for the day’s conditions in next to no time.  The Resort also has a rigid-hull 3.5 meter Zodiac, launched directly from the resort that can drop you off right in the lineup.

As for non-surfing activities, there are world class reefs for amazing snorkelling and fishing.  The nearby rain forest offers treks with amazing waterfalls and swimming holes. Take a leisurely walk through the rice fields.  Rent a scooter and explore the island as your whim leads you.

But it all comes back to the surf, doesn’t it, starting right there in front of your bungalow’s doorstep. Aura Surf Resort is the idyllic tropical surf resort to unwind the stress and pump up the surf stoke.

Aura surf provides you with 4 bungalows with the local traditional style with the main building assembled with woven bamboo and wood made from local hardwood with thatched palmed roofing. The Bungalows are elevated high above an untouched 3km long stretch of perfect white sandy beach.

One of the best resorts we've stayed at. We have been to a few surf camps and resorts over the years in Indo and Fiji but the Aura was probably the best in terms of it's proximity to really great waves and the accommodation. This place had everything we could have wanted. Great food and very helpful and friendly staff. We will be coming back next year. Seriously good value considering where you are and what you are getting for your money!
