Surfing is a beautiful water sport riding waves in an upright position. It is also the art of balancing one’s self in the water, and gliding across the surface of the water till the waves break, and loses its energy. The key factor in surfing is to ride and progress on the unbroken part of the wave by using a surf board. Arugam Bay is very well known for surfing, and is patronized by many foreigners and locals as it is the most cleanest beach in Sri Lanka today. People surf till late night as life in Arugam Bay starts at night and ends at dawn. Other popular surfing destinations are Trincomalee, Weligama, Pasikudah and Mirissa.
