Surfing Sri Lanka – for All Tastes
From Pottuvil and Arugam Bay, through Kalpitiya, Puttalam and Kappalady, to Mirissa and Weligama: Sri Lanka is a year-round destination for windsurfing, surfing and kiteboarding –either on the west, east or south coast, depending on the time of year. Sri Lanka is especially well suited for surfers: the waves are generally not too demanding, and there are various spots along the east and south coast for beginners, intermediates and advanced surfers. As a rule, wind conditions for surfing are better in the morning and in the evening; this is because the wind picks up around noon. The significantly weaker north-eastern monsoon season lasts from October to March, which is the right time to visit the north-western regions of the island, chiefly for kitesurfing.
