Tour overview

Surfing in SriLanka



Kalpitiya, an amazing shallow water lagoon spot and a wind safety equal to that of Brazil in two long seasons, from May to October and December to March. Perfect for those of you who want to learn kitesurfing or improve their kitesurf
skills. Live right by the lagoon at Kite Worldwide Lagoon Lodge with comfortable rooms and swimming pool in the garden! Sri Lanka is the closest tropical kitesurfing destination and can be reached with numerous airlines, including the
comfortable and affordable Golf Airlines such as Emirates and Turkish Airlines. A variety of activities, besides kitesurfing, are available to create an unforgettable time for you. Whether it’s the jungle safari where you may even see baby
elephants, the morning yoga session (on land or on SUPs), camping under the Milky Way on Vella Island, dolphin and whale watching, visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site Anuradhapura (the forgotten city) or surfing at the nearest wave
spot. There is a lot of fun stuff to do for everyone!



Weligama has good waves all year round and is another favorite for beginners and intermediate surfers. The main beach has a row of surfing schools with plenty of boards for rent, but it does sometimes suffer from pollution. The waves are
usually easy to learn on and can get a bit bigger for intermediate level surfers. When you’re feeling steady, try Midigama, with three great points. The Lazy Left is better in the afternoons and a favorite with goofy riders. The Right has a
shallow reef break, while Rams Right is for more advanced surfers, with some barrels and short and tight breaks. We also love Gurubebila. Plantation Point is great for early morning rides with both lefts and rights. It’s a rocky entry but
is easier to ride than Coconut, which is a classic A-Frame formation better tackled by experienced surfers.


Arugambay SurfingArugam Surfing

Arugam Bay is on the east coast, and the best season to be here is when it’s too rainy in the south. The weather gods grace Arugam Bay with dry skies while the rest of the island is battered by monsoon rains. It’s best to visit between
April and September. Here Baby Point is better for beginners, while Main Point is for more advanced riders. Elephant Rock, a tuk-tuk ride from Arugam Bay, is great for beginners, but don’t wear flip-flops, as you have to climb rocks to get
to it. It’s worth it because the beach is so beautiful. If you’re an experienced surfer, make your way to Pottuvil and Whisky Point, north of Arugam Bay. Whisky Point tends to get crowded, so don’t rock up too late in the day.

Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, and officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, is an island country in South Asia. It lies in the Indian Ocean, southwest of the Bay of Bengal, and southeast of the Arabian Sea; it is
separated from the Indian subcontinent by the Gulf of Mannar and the Palk Strait Bathed in warm Indian Ocean current, and with nearly 1600 kilometres of palm-fringed coastline, Sri Lanka is an incredible surf destination. Positioned
just south of India in the Indian Ocean you’ll find a land of magnificent landscapes featuring lagoons, fertile wetlands, mysterious forests, mountains, rivers and cascading waterfalls. Sri Lanka has an array of wildlife found in no
other ecosystem, inspiring historical and religious sites, and a culture rich in tradition. With the west and east coast catching different swells, Sri Lanka is also a year-round surf trip destination.
