Weligama beach is a sandy beach, suitable for beginners and advanced surfers all year around. There are no reefs or rocks on the beach or at the bottom of the water making it a perfect learning environment so you don’t have to worry about getting hurt if you fall off the board. This is definitely a suitable place for beginners as well.
Perfect conditions for longboard and shortboard surfing too, we consistently have perfect conditions on the Weligama beach during high season. Perfect for beginners as well as challenging for more advanced surfers, the main ripple break.
Longboarders will also be happy as Weligama long waves invite longboarders.
Steady waves, the waves are quite predictable so it’s easy to ride and once you catch a wave you can ride it for a long time. Also, there are no bad rip or sweep currents, so we do our basic training in Weligama, in front of our surf house Surfn’Lanka as well as our training plan is completely different from most other local surf camps and is at the top of the international level.
