Welcome to Puri Asu Resort

WELCOME, TO PURI ASU from World Surfaris & World Snowfaris on Vimeo.


Puri Asu Resort is the only resort-like accommodation on the island with a breathtakingly beautiful bay out the front as well as private jetty where they moor their 200hp wavehunting speed boat and 2x 50hp tender boats for waves a little closer to home.

The rooms are spacious and therefore comfortable with ocean views. The accommodation surrounds the main hub of the resort which is the restaurant and bar. It is here where guests can feel like they are on holidays, with ice cold Bintangs and the freshest of meals being provided 3 times a day.

This really is a tropical oasis, off the grid but still with enough remote access to call home.

Suited to the adventurous surfers looking to escape mundane & regular crowds. Bring your non-surfing partner who can simply switch off, read a book, go stand up paddle boarding, yoga sessions by the beach and everyones favorite.... cheap massages!

Only at Puri Asu Resort will you experience a true surf adventure accompanied by world class marine craft. The resort boasts a 200 hp surf transfer vessel for waves further afield...something the cheap surf camps in the area don't offer. Also throw in the mix 3x Jet skis for tow surfing or simply towing you back into the lineup after each wave and to top it all off 2x 50hp tenders used for sole use groups of 12-16 surfers who don't all want to cram onto one boat with boards.

Surf Puri Asu Resort - North Sumatra

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.
