Our Surf Seasons Explained
Winter season (December-April)
This time of the year has ideal offshore winds and waves in the 2 to 6 ft range. This is considered the high season in Sri Lanka and generally most surf spots on the island can get crowded. But don't worry, we have our own beach front and the surf is good in front of the villa for both beginners and intermediate surfers. For more experienced surfers there is “The Rock”. We also know a few other secret spots around here which are less known and off the beaten track and will be a good change up during your week. The winter season is ideal for beginners or intermediate surfers.
Summer season (April-October)
This time of year still gets good swells with waves in the 2 to 8 ft range. The surf spot in front of the villa still gets onshore and some offshore winds, ideal for beginner surfers. This is considered low season, so most spots in our area have no crowd.
Shoulder seasons (October/November & late April)
The winds usually change mid-October with the swells in the 4 to 8 ft range. This time of the year is ideal with big swells and offshore winds at all the spots in our area. November and October are the inter-monsoonal months with occasional heavy rains. Most surfers say this is an excellent time to be here its lush and green, not too hot, not so busy, and the surf is pumping. In late April the bigger swells start to kick in again and is not affected by the monsoon, It’s also a great period with few crowds and waves in the 2-8ft range. A great time for beginners and intermediates.
