THIS IS GONNA BE THE TRIP OF MY LIFE

SURFING AT SRI LANKA

SPIRITUALITY ISLAND

At list once in a life, every wave searcher should surf at Sri Lanka. Even more all those attracted by oriental mystic and yoga. Buddha footprints are as present in the old Ceylon as the tuktuks and the surfboards. In the middle of the Indian Ocean, with coral reefs, quality waves had to be present. Barrels or long and mellow waves? It doesn’t matters. There are waves for everyone here. Even to get started in surfing. In 2022, Malamalama started an annual residence at the “Shinning Island” South. At winter, running away from cold. All the ingredients are served. A paradise island. Awesome waves. Warm weather. Raw spirituality. And Malamalama Family over there to give you the best service. In 2023 we’ll be back. From 8th January till 5th March.

THE BEST BEACHES IN SRI LANKA

At Sri Lanka there are two main surf areas. South and East. We go to the South. Easier to reach. More versatile.

Also, we like to go there on winter. Runaway from the cold to surf in boardshorts. In those days, monsoon is hitting the West, so Arugam Bay is not nice. Meanwhile, at South, in our home, Yala’s monsoon doesn’t arrive till summer.

Our lodge is located in Mirissa. Mirissa Beach, 5 minutes walk from our home, is an epic point break with reef on the bottom. There’s an awesome right wave, easily over a meter. Just be careful with the reef and the sea urchins at the end… If you are not that skilled, you have Welligama a couple kilometres away, with a nice and friendly beach break. We go there for the rental and the lessons. It’s a long beach with lots of line ups for everyone.

Also there are other neat spots. Madiha, Midigama, Dickwella, Hiriketiya… Each kilometre a new beach. All good for surfing. Each one different from the other.

At that time, the weather is between 25 and 30 degrees in the outside and about 28 degrees in the water… No need to say that you don’t need to include your wetsuit in the baggage, but the socks against the sea urchins can be helpful!

SRI LANKA MYSTIC

Sri Lanka is a rare case. It’s been a commercial port through the centuries. Arabians, Portuguese, Dutchmen, British… Everyone has used the good old Ceylon as a trading point or as a farming area. Even though, Sri Lanka had managed to stay unaffected by the occidental charms. Only a few countries had preserved the rituals and traditions of ancient Buddism as Sri Lanka. Only in a few countries you can feel the Asian spirituality the same way. That’s why it’s one of the most requested destination by yoga lovers and buddist practice.

In our camp we have a perfect Yoga Shala for the daily practice, but if you are an experimented yogi, you should visit one of the mythical places. There are a lot of temples and Yoga Centers in the island. Also, is really nice to catch your mat and enjoy the sunrise or the sunset in the beach.

OUR SURFCAMP AT SRI LANKA

Our hostel at Mirissa has 6 double rooms. Three with a ceiling fan and 3 with A/C. Also, there are bunk beds rooms. Mixed or female only. Obviously those are way more cheap. If that’s what your looking for, please ask us, because the prices bellow are for the private rooms.

The facilities include a swimming pool, the Yoga Shala, hammocks for relaxing, an upper terrace chill out (perfect for the sunset yoga)… But, most of all, good vibes! Our guests are international, so cultural exchange is guaranteed. The swimming pool is the networking spot. To tell you the truth it’s addictive and there are guests that only go out when the night arrives.

5 minutes walk from the camp is the Mirissa Beach. 2 kms. to Welligama There are a lot of bars, restaurants and all kind of facilities in the surroundings, You can buy a nice vegetables curry with rice in the street food stands. At the bars, one cocktail costs something like 2 euros, and a half liter beer, less than 2.

We have several day trips in case you don’t want to surf (if that’s possible): Uda Walawe Park for elephant safari, Perahena Temple, Dondra Lighthouse, Galle Fort, Whale Watching, Turtle Farm at Koggala… the good old Ceilon is a natural show. Don’t stay only on the beaches!
