Have you ever dreamed of exploring the teardrop shape island paradise and all its waves? Sri Lanka is well and truly a one of a kind surf destination with waves all year round and two distinct surf seasons.

From May until November, the points around Arugam Bay turn into eye candy with long rippable walls hugging the points on sheer infinite supplies. But the real standout is the country's South West Coast from November until April. Break after break, wave after wave decorate the long winding Matara Road, only waiting for the takers.

Be Aware

The Indian Ocean is the gold-standard of surf travel, without a doubt. Not many would disagree with us saying that the Indian Ocean has the highest concentration of world class waves found on our planet. That level of perfection, however, comes at a price. The price of long plane rides, lengthy connections, rocky transfers and some negotiation skills. No worries though, leave all this up to us and we’ll guarantee smooth sailing throughout your trip. You know the saying “travel more, worry less”, right?

5 Reasons for you to book an Indian Ocean surf adventure


The Indian Ocean got surf levels for everyone

You may be a complete beginner or a pro, but you have one place in common – the Indian Ocean. Newbies can explore the Sri Lankan options, perfect for total beginners with professional coaching laid on and a range of mellow waves on offer. The more advanced pros can rest assured that sets sent from the heavens await them in the Maldives or Mentawais.


Warm water for you to surf all year round

Pack board shorts! Imagine warm water, all year round. Stop imagining. The beautiful waters of the Indian Ocean invite all, and there is no fear of cold surf. The Maldives have super sunny and dry conditions from December to March and offer massive swell from May to October, along with windy and humid weather.


The ocean is your playground

The ocean will be your playground that is guaranteed. Whether you are wave riding or diving across the plentiful array of coral reefs which hug the coastlines you will never get bored. For fans of deeper water, scuba diving adventures are a must and if your timing is right you may just get to meet some of the locals – whales and dolphins. That being said, there is nothing more iconic than a lazy day in a hammock, when you aren’t smashing a set of course.


Surf Trips to the Indian Ocean are honeymoon or group travel-friendly

The picturesque, tropical surroundings of the many Indian Ocean destinations make them an ideal couples and honeymoon choice. That isn’t to say that it’s not as ideal for the Solo or surf groups. Rather, it is a magical place with enough variety to keep everyone, even a family of surf seeking adventures happy! From deep-pocketed adventurers to penny-saving surf seekers, there are options for everyone.


Accommodation is an adventure, no matter where you surf in the Indian Ocean

Accommodation options for Indian Ocean surf adventures come in two distinct categories – land-based or live-aboard surf boat. However, from there the possibilities are endless. Be it affordable beach-front surf house rooms you seek or a secluded and completely private villa you crave, we have all the options you could ever think of. And yes we also offer packages which have cozy and comfortable shared cabins or even large suites aboard luxury boats you have only seen in music videos!
