North Sumatra really is a great option during the supposed “off season” in Indonesia. Most surfers consider the prime surf season in Indonesia the southern hemisphere winter, which is usually May through September, when low-pressure systems in the Southern Ocean and Indian Ocean pulse ground swells toward the equator. But there can be great weather and consistent surf during the off months. The weather has been great with consistent head high or better surf right through all of February. We still have space available at Aura Surf Resort through April 10th, so jump down now for uncrowded barrels and good times!
From 2014 two of the best surf spots in the Maldives, Sultans & Honky’s will be a managed surf location by the company establishing the resort to be built on Thanburudhoo Island; this sustainable management policy will seek to find a balance between low crowds and accessibility.
Local Maldivian surfers and authorized tourist surfers will have access to these two epic breaks. Authorized tourist surfers will include only those booked on Theia & Gurahali surf charters, Chaaya Island Dhonveli Resort and a maximum of 4 surfers from the Four Seasons Resort. There will be a maximum of 2 licensed charter boats at any time. Just two surf charter boats accessing the two waves off Thanburudhoo will mean epic uncrowded waves for a few lucky surfers! Book your dream trip today and cruise through the Inner Atolls (North and S Male Atolls) aboard one of our Maldives surf charters scoring perfect uncrowded surf.
This time of year is usually considered to be the off season, but the end of November through the beginning of December saw great conditions at Macaronis Resort for the first “off-season”. The surf has continued to be consistent with clean conditions and rippable surf for all guests to enjoy, including the groms!
Our friends at Surfline are forecasting a solid swell approaching Chicama Point in Peru arriving December 12th and lasting through December 17th. The conditions look good with the swell direction SW 218° / 5ft to 6ft / 16 SEC, nice perfect long lines should be wrapping down the Point at this direction, with barrels at the take-off. Pack your boards and come surf this perfect left point break this Holiday season!
At 32-metre the Theia yacht is one of the finest luxury surf charters to cruise the Maldives. The Theia is designed to spoil its guests, built from the finest traditional timber and thoroughly fitted out with every modern feature for fun, safety and comfortable cruising. Another special feature that comes along while traveling aboard this luxury surf charter, is that the Theia is licensed to access the surf breaks of Sultans & Honky’s as part of the Thanburudhoo managed access program effective in 2014.

Macaronis has been consistent with varying conditions and swell during the month of October. Some glassy days with perfect barrels, some side-shore days, perfect for airs and some epic days for all guests to enjoy. The shoulder or transition months of September/October will usually experience light and variable winds due to the changing of seasons. These months often experience glassy conditions and can be the best time to sample a larger variety of waves. All in all October has been an epic month at Macaronis Surf Resort with great weather and good surf! Check out the video and you will be ready to book your next surf trip here!
Another solid SWELL is approaching Chicama Point and expected to arrive on October 10th – 12th. Conditions are SW 225° / 6ft to 7ft / 16 SEC. This swell has a perfect direction and period for Chicama Point. There are still rooms available at Chicama Surf Resort, so book now and score this next epic swell.

I just wanted to let you know that Nate and I had a great time at the Nemberala resort this year. Waterways has the surf traveling completely dialed in, from the travel organization to the travel itself. We were met at every step of the way by your staff and moved effortlessly to and from airports and hotels, a true relief when traveling in Indonesia with luggage and board bags. The resort was as comfortable as ever. The accommodations and service were excellent and the food gets better every time we go. But best of all we got waves almost every day. We had a solid 10 full days of pumping surf. I have attached a few shots of Nate. It was a great experience for him and the best trip we have had. We are definitely going back next year.
Thanks for everything,
