Everyone would like to get it right with the weather and surf conditions. To start off we can tell you that there are two coastlines in Sri Lanka where you can surf: one is the east coast where the season starts from May to October and other one is the south coast where the season starts from October to April. The Surfer is situated on the south coast which has the longest surf season with the largest number of surf points to choose from.
October to April gives dry and sunny weather condition to the south coast, water temperatures will be around 27°C-30°C which gives you a great opportunity to surf without a wet suit. The combination of head high glassy waves, long periods and offshore winds creates the setting for perfect surf conditions for anyone from beginners to advanced surfers!
May to September is off season for surfing but still great temperatures and conditions for other travelers and complete beginners. The so-called monsoon period only delivers some rain at night and the rest of the day is always great weather!
Our team of friendly surf instructors will be more than happy to show you around to new spots in our neighborhood. There are so many new possibilities just around the corner!
