Well that happened pretty quick! But what an amazing year 2016 is to look back on. This is always our favourite newsletter to put together for exactly that reason, a snapshot of 2016 and the waves that were ridden.

A massive shout out to all our staff, guides, boat captains, photographers, chefs, gardeners ( there's a lot that goes into making a surfing paradise ) and most importantly our awesome guests for making 2016 another incredible year.

You may already be back at work, reading this email at your desk, mindsurfing these waves, but here's the good news: Aura is offering a 20% discount for all group bookings of 10 or more guests. Deposits need to be received before 20th of January to qualify. So round up your mates and take advantage of this rare offer.

Huge thanks to all the photographers that endured waves on the head, sunburns and technical malfunctions that only occur in the tropics to bring you this year of photos: @charliecullenphoto / @mickandrewsphotography / @nannitanani / @ombaksufphoto / @ryzphoto / @swillpics . Be sure to check out our instagram @aurasurfresort and like us on facebook for an easy way to see more of our top quality surfing photos both past and present.

See you soon
January- These guys decided to leave the bluebottles and crowds back home in exchange for a perfect empty Peak
January- The new gazebo photo tower is unveiled and Dj Charlie C gets the call for the launch party. The Peak keeps doing its thing.
February- Despite smaller swells, plenty of fun, rippable days and different wave options to explore.
February- Surf guide legend Pierce returns and gets training to tackle the heaviest slab on the island.
March- The Peak pumps for 2 weeks straight. So many good days throughout the month.
March- The swell keeps coming- its hard to leave a wave like this when its firing, but when the guests finally muster up the energy to surf some waves a little further from the front yard, they're rewarded with the surf trip of their lives.
April- Perhaps the most consistent month of the 2016 year with back to back swells.
April- Some of the first solid swells of the year start lighting up the points.
May- The big swells are hanging around. Some pesky sand overstays its welcome on the Peak but the boat trips deliver the goods daily.
May- No shortage of waves for those that rather travel by land than boat.
June- The biggest swell of the year shows up, crews are sent scrambling, boards snap, boardies are stained, certain reefs take on a whole new look.
June- The month of barrels continues- have a look at our full newsletter for the wrap of that month
July- Things it seems, are just getting warmed up. The year so far has been boiling down to one of the gnarliest sessions to go down on the island.
July- Fingerbash is born. This new discovery goes down as the heaviest wave on the island, Pro surfer Nick Rosza and our guides Pierce and captain Jimmy give it its place in Aura history. Watch it now
August- A break in the heavy stuff ( kinda ), but still not tired of tubes, the crew loads up the boat for daily keg fests.
August- Hawaiins ( and Boat Captain Jimmy in particular) - make this look all too easy.
September- Our awesome team: Charlie, Jimmy and Pierce head home for a well earned break. The new crew waste no time in filling some big shoes in epic conditions.
September- This is what perfection looks like.
October- The Tracks Magazine crew put their biggest and best ride guide together on all types of boards in all types of waves.
October- In case you missed the link in the first pic, October is well worth checking out.
November- The Peak starts showing us its good ol' self after a few tricky weeks of sand deposits move on.
November- A little further from home and the boys score another favourite left.
December- 11 Year old shred dog Asher Mcbride makes his first Indo trip one to remember with multiple barrels whilst dad is sidelined for photo duties.
December- Another awesome finish to a great year at Aura Surf Resort. Big thanks to all the guests that made it such an epic year! Look forward to surfing with you all again.
Howz about a wave like this to yourself?
From now until March is the best time for exactly that. Epic conditions and no one round.
This photo is from one of those epic empty days during the low season.
