Sri Lanka has many extensive water bodies that can be used for windsurfing. The most popular places are BENTOTA, TRINCOMALEE and NEGOMBO. For a real wind-surfer's paradise, head down to BENTOTA,for beginners of windsurfing, the more tranquil waters of the BENTOTA River or any of Sri Lanka 's many tanks and lakes offer an ideal training zone before heading out to the challenge of the ocean.
North of TRINCOMALEE , in the west coast of Sri Lanka , the sea off Nilaveli beach provides a fantastic east coast alternative for when the Yala monsoon brings strong winds and rough seas to the west.
So whatever you're level of experience, leave your wetsuit at the door and make the most of what Sri Lanka has to offer this exciting sport. You can learn to windsurf all year round on the NEGOMBO Lagoon. There is always a wind across the lagoon, which can be quite strong on some days the waves reach heights of no more than a mere 15cm. To ensure the best wind and water conditions on the east coast, go from May-October.
