Mirissa Surf Location is now a well know surf spot situated in the district of Matara in close proximity to Weligama. Some calls this spot Urchin Feast in honor of the urchin that will poke your feet if you go out the wrong way The surf spot is located on the right end of the beach where you will find many guest houses and restaurants. There is a channel through which you can paddle tot he lineup. Since its a point reef break, you do not have to go to the last lineup to catch waves, since there are plenty of inside ones. The easiest way to get in is around the big rock before the spot. The right start at the end of boulders, the further you go the longer you ride will be. It is an easy wave but you will have to get some speed in order to pass the sections. When it gets to 4 feet the left will start to show up about 80 from the big rock and is a punchy fun wave to ride. The only thing you have to be careful for is the get out of the water part. When you face the beach don’t go to the right where the fish wooden pole is; aim for the opposite side. Look for the biggest tree on the beach, there is a 2 meters wide channel that is a manageable way out. U can also decide to paddle around the rock again The specialty about Mirissa is that its waves are hardly affected by onshore wind due to the point being located in between rocks and a hill. Mirissa also has a beach break ideal for beginners and boogy boarding and works best close to full moon days. When surf’s not up, Mirissa is good for snorkeling, fishing and one of the best places to go Dolphin watching during the whale season Nov – April.
