Sri Lanka, Surf

The Rock


Dawn patrol this morning on the south coast. There was one of the biggest swells I’ve seen so far forecasting today, 4-6ft at 16 seconds. Unfortunately the ocean didn’t provide this surf but you can’t really complain as it was pretty damn good any way. Surfed a perfect a-frame break called Kabalana or “The Rock” with a few friends. It breaks on pretty deep water and can handle some size. At the most we were four guys on the left and four guys on the right, and at one moment we were only a total of three guys out sharing perfect waves and even a few barrels in the take off. Gotta love the surf  & the crowds here!
