UPALI BEACH SURF RESORT ARUGAM BAY

MAIN POINT ARUGAM BAY, AMONGST THE BEST WAVES IN THE WORLD


Some people, and not the least, consider Main Point Arugam Bay as one of the 10th best break in the world. Although it's a very subjective point of view and even if it's not as photogenic and exposed as Tehaupoo, Waimea or Nazare lately, everyone agrees to say that it is a world class reef break.

We had the Pro Tour twice in Arugam Bay and they may come back anytime soon.

The average ride in season flirts with 300m and it works great from shoulder high to double over head. The wave has 3 sections and gives quite often barrels. It suits surfer from intermediate level as it's not as powerful as an indonesian wave while being quite technical to ride well. It's the perfect wave to enjoy but also to improve your skills.

If Main Point reef break is not suitable for beginners (unless going with a teacher and on small conditions), Baby Point is the perfect spot to learn the surfing ABC and it's only 150 meters from our position.
Main Point works well starting from mid-march-mid april (depending on the years) until november. Baby Point works year round but not from April to mid June or early July.

We are always keen on sharing tips about surfing at main point or about the other breaks of the area, so feel free to ask us.

We may also help you organize "Surf Safaris" by tuktuk or boat to different surf spots such as Whisky Point, Peanut Farm, Okanda, Panama, Pottuvil Point, Light House, Green Room or to some secret spots.

Although we don’t provide surf lessons nor rent board, we can help you find a board and/or the best surf instructor according to your level and expectations, from beginner to intermediate. Hence we don’t take any fee or comission on surf lessons or rentals, we shall not be held responsible for any surf / surf class related problem, damage or injuries.
