The Hinako Islands are one of the most consistent surf destinations in the entire world. Its broad exposure towards the southern Indian Ocean provides these islands with consistency and high-quality waves all year long.

When Asu is good the Puri Asu Resort boat will take you from your bed to the peak in 5 minutes any time of day you like.

There are five waves in the area, with a distance of 5 to 50 minutes by speedboat. 


The main surfing season is March – November. Here is what you can expect in each month:

  • March: Small to medium and glassy conditions.
  • April: Small to medium and glassy conditions.
  • May: Medium to Large swells and glassy conditions. 
  • June: Solid swells and generally clean conditions.
  • July and August: Bigger swells and offshore winds. 
  • September: Bigger Swells and offshore winds.
  • October: Consistent medium swells and smooth conditions. 
  • November: Small to medium and glassy conditions.


The Breaks:

  • Asu  Left hand wave that works on all tides, big and small swells, and south wind conditions. From 2-6 feet, it is a perfect and fun wave peeling over coral reef with barrels and variety of conditions. Asu can handle up to 10 foot waves and still maintain good shape.
  • Bawa  Never goes flat. Righthander, lots of variety. Surfable from 2-8 feet. Over 8 feet it is time to break out the jet-ski.
  • Barrel Machine Is a perfect symmetrical high-performance wave. In glassy or off-shore conditions 4 - 6 second barrels are possible from the take off. Needs a big swell to work and stays fun sized when other spots are too big. From 2 – 6 feet and technically doesn’t get any bigger than this; it does become more hollow and round. 
  • Mini Bawa It's a friendly wave up to 6 feet, then it shows it’s power. Deep water and thick lips when it is over 6 feet. 
  • Sirombu Is a sheltered rippable right-hander located near the Sirombu harbour. Its the best for intermediate surfers and works when things are a bit messy. Some barrels, sand and reef bottom.
  • Afulu is located 40-50 minutes from Asu. A dream left-hander on the Nias mainland and offers incredible tube rides with rippable walls. Needs large swell to work.
  • Salonako 45 minutes from Asu. ''Super Perfect'' right-hander and can provide challenging barrel rides. Super fast, with sand and reef bottom. It needs larger ground swell to work. 
  • Bommie - is a deep water slab, very close by but needs a low tide, east wind and solid swell to work.
