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
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.

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?
