This province is a well established region with the community scattered around the island. As such you can expect access to many modern amenities such as shops, markets and whole array of cultural experiences. In addition to this Aura Resort is on the main power grid and has good mobile phone connectivity and limited internet access.
With access to over half a dozen breaks that turn on in different conditions you’re all but guaranteed stoke. The Island offers a huge variety of waves suitable for all types of surfing. Aura surf guides have a very in-depth understanding of the coastline and its many hidden waves. You’ll always be in the right spot on the right day for the right wave for you. In addition to this the island is located in the doldrums and more often than not there is no wind. When there is wind its generally from a local storm that will pass in a couple of hours leaving a glassy off shore breeze.
This North Sumatran location has the longest fetch out of any Indonesian Island. It can utilize swells from the North West around India and the Maldives. This is a bonus as it does not have to rely on Southern swells like most other Indonesian surfing spots. It also picks up the full brunt of South swells as the island is situated at more of an angle than the other islands and is at the top of a 6km deep x 800mile trench. Swells received here have a longer period, longer lines and barrels
