North of TRINCOMALEE , in the west coast of Sri Lanka , the sea off Nilaveli beach provides a fantastic east coast alternative for when the Yala monsoon brings strong winds and rough seas to the west. So whatever you're level of experience, leave your wetsuit at the door and make the most of what Sri Lanka has to offer this exciting sport. You can learn to windsurf all year round on the NEGOMBO Lagoon. There is always a wind across the lagoon, which can be quite strong on some days the waves reach heights of no more than a mere 15cm.
N.B. If venturing out on the south-west coastline, grab your sail and board between November and April before the monsoon hits. To ensure the best wind and water conditions on the east coast, go from May-October.
