Guiding to Surfing

Surfing is a sport with multiple interpretations. For many, it's a recreational activity, physical activity, and a competitive sport, but for others, it is a lifestyle, an addiction, and a spiritual connection with Nature.

Surfing has different meanings to different surfers. What's yours?

In the ocean, wave riders stand up on surfboards and navigate the water - nearly parallel to the beach - toward the shore. There are four types of surfing waves: spilling waves, plunging waves, surging waves, and collapsing waves.

The ultimate goal of surfing is to ride and progress on the unbroken part of the wave using a surfboard. Nevertheless, beginners can learn to surf in the whitewater part of the wave.

A surfing hotspot in Sri Lanka, Mirissa-Madiha beach offers waves for nice turns. Morning and Evening periods are the best. The beach is clean and crystal clear and a great start off point for a run into the waters. The blue waters offer a good ride for beginners and experienced surfers. Mirissa-Madiha beach is an unpopulated beach.

Mirissa-Madiha is a pointbreak location with intermediate level waves. Local surfers can be considered to be average to good. Best waves can be experienced early morning and late afternoon.

If you’re looking to try surfing for the first time, it’s best to rent the equipment and seek out a qualified instructor. Remember to wear a wetsuit if the water is cold and to have fun with it. Very few people master surfing during their first lesson, but those who stick with it quickly develop the skills and passion for the sport.
