Sri Lanka

A bit about surfing in Sri Lanka

With temperatures at a steady 27ºC, this tear-shaped (relatively) small island is a travel-to must! Despite its size, Sri Lanka has two distinct seasons. From November to March/April, the Monsoon hits the East Coast and from May to September the Monsoon hits the west. With spots in each, you can find year-round surf for all abilities. Whilst there has been long running civil unrest in the mainland, it has not affected the surfers route which continues to be popular since the first surfers took to the oceans here in 1965.

Waves in Sri Lanka:

In the South West the surf season is from late October to late March where the usual is a daily dose of offshore winds and clean waves. With a change in weather, the best surf conditions shift to the South East coast around Arugum Bay from April. Departing from the UK, Sri Lankan air will have you there in 10 hours and also allow 40kg baggage allowance which is pretty awesome for anyone that has spent all their money on surfboards like us and wants to take their quiver out.
