Surfing Tour In Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka offers everything a surfer’s heart desires, and then more! Perfectly formed pointbreaks, secret bays and beaches, and an infinite supply of reef configurations extending from Hikkaduwa on the country’s southwestern coast all the way across to Arugam Bay on the west combine for one spectacular playground just waiting to be discovered. A surfer’s paradise in other words, the Southern Coast boasts an epic seascape for all surfers and even beginners. On the Southwest Coast, there is such a wide range of waves to select from in close vicinity that you can avoid the worst of it if you’re willing to travel about a bit to check out the various breaks for the least amount of crowds. If you’re an expert surfer, you may even find yourself surfing Rams Right barrel with only a few other people out because there are a lot of beginner and intermediate surfers who won’t be interested in surfing a rapid hollow shallow reef break.

Benny’s – Best for more advanced Surfers Main Reef
