Il surf

Sri Lanka has definitely become a surf destination among the most important ones, despite the civil war and the 2004 tsunami that hit the country. Thanks to its culture, low cost of living, the uncontamindated nature and its high level surf, this country attracts an increasing number of surfers from all over the world. Sri Lanka has two distinct surfing areas: the South East and the South West coasts. The South East region has its hub at Arugam Bay, a bay exposed to swells from the south which, thanks to its shape, creates perfect right waves with an average size around 1.2 meters (4 feet): a paradise for the intermediate level surfers. In addition, the winds are offshore from April to October and the waves hit the coast with high frequency. The South West region has its focus around the town of Hikkaduwa. This coast is on the same path of the big swells that hit Indonesia in summer, but, unfortunately, the local winds that blow in this period ruin the quality of the waves, so many surfers prefer to go to this region from December to March when the waves are smaller (1-1.5 m / 3-5 feet) and sweeter, but the winds are offshore for most of the day.

Quando andare

For the east coast the best period is definitely from April to October, when the frequent swells from south and the winds offshore make this area and Arugam Bay a paradise for regular stancers. On the contrary, this same period is not very favorable to the west coast, despite the big swells that hit the area, due to the westerly winds that blow onshore and the frequent rains. So the best period coincides with the dry season, from December to March, when the winds turn offshore, with consequent improvement of the waves. Glassy conditions will be a constant. The tidal effect is minimal.
