When is the best time to surf in Weligama

Best time to go

The best time to surf in Weligama is from November to March, with higher waves and perfect conditions.

Weligama is known for its contrasting wind and swell patterns. Although most consistent swells are found from April to October, so are frequent SW onshores. It’s still possible to surf in the morning, but expect rain, dirty water, and strong winds. For better surf conditions, it’s therefore recommended to visit the South West coast from November to March, when waves are typically 0,5-2 meters (2-6 ft) high, and the water is clean.
