“The region of Ahangama to Mirissa is 9 miles and could be called Sri Lanka’s tribute to Hawaii’s North Shore 7 mile miracle. There are a handful of fun surf spots from lefts, rights, beachies and A-frames. Amongst these breaks you’ll find spots that cater to the beginner and others that serve up waves to satiate an intermediate and even advanced surfer.” (Surf Dubai)
