Why Sri Lanka Is The New Surfing Hotspot, And When You Should Go There
Bali, Hawaii, Madagascar… All epic passport stamps to collect, if you’re a surfer; but Sri Lanka is fast gaining ground as an A-list destination too. The reason: you don’t have to be a hotshot pro to enjoy the warm tropical waves. April to October is the best surf season in Sri Lanka, and ever more itinerant South African board riders are flocking to its warm waters for good waves, small crowds and chilled island vibes.

Arugam Bay on the East Coast of the island is the undisputed centre of the Sri Lankan surfing world; however, that also means it can get (a bit more) crowded if the surf is up. We suggest heading to the southern and south-western coastline, which has plenty of secret and undiscovered surf spots.
