"Are you actually serious?" is the first question I posed upon myself, which in fact related to several enquires all at once like - "Is that surf for real or a FUTURISTIC HOLOGRAM??? "Surely waves can't be that PERFECT, except in the sketch drawn episodes of Captain Good Vibes,(showing my age there). FLAWLESS is only one word that comes to...

Scored epic waves on a variety of conditions. If the wave out front isn't working there are plenty of other options around the island. The accommodation was clean and impressive especially for being off the beaten path. Low crowd factor, comfortable accommodation delicious food and knowledgeable surf guides. What more can you ask for? Much better than battling the crowds...

Stayed at Aura and had a blast. Epic surf and staff. The grounds are amazing. Best location on the island hands down. And by far the most experienced knowledge of the island. We surfed waves that no body else on the island knows about. All I can say is you get what you pay for. We spoke to other surfers...
