Surf Breaks in Sri Lanka for Beginners and Advanced Surfers

April 12, 2013 | Surf

Sri Lanka’s southern coastline naturally offers all different kind of waves. Beginners can enjoy their first surf lessons at beautiful sanded beaches catching the white wash near the shore. Advanced surfers will also enjoy waves breaking on sand as they increase in size.

Some of the more advanced surfers might want to challenge themselves at some of the reef spots that can be found here on southern tip of Sri Lanka.

During the main surfing season predominantly groundswells from the southwest will hit the shores of Sri Lanka’s southern coastline. This direction of swell causes waves to break to the left and to the right which will favour regular and goofy footers alike.
