Wind surfing

The best time for windsurfing on the west coast is between November and April. On the east coast the best winds are during July and August. They tend to be on the strong side, but other than that conditions are excellent.

Hambantota and Tangalle in the south are particularly good and other famous places for the wind suffering are Trincomalee, Arugam bay, Bentota, Kaluthara and Negombo lagoon, The possibilities of windsurfing in Sri Lanka are not just limited to the coastline. There are many tanks and lakes in the interior that have the potential of making the sport island wide. This concept was recently tried out with the inaugural Inland Windsurfing Championships being held in Dambulla.
