Sri Lanka produces some good fun waves, offshore winds are very consistent during the monsoon season. The best surf season in the southwest is from November to March and then on the east coast, from May to September. Planning a surf trip is almost as important as living because if you don’t carry vital tools, you will not be able to complete your mission. Whether you like to pack days in advance or wait until the very last minute, this article will help you make the most of your time away.

Surfboards: Boards all come down to personal preference, your destination and the season you are traveling in. How many boards you want to bring comes down to the limits of your travel bag, how long you will be staying and cost.
Travel bag: A good travel bag can make a world of difference and cut out a lot of stress in traveling with surfboards. You want a solid bag that you know will protect your boards, hold up to the abuses of travel and are easy to carry around as well.
Surf Wax: You will need to de-wax your board before the flight so a wax comb is helpful as well. It’s cheaper to bring your own wax than to buy it at your destination.
Leash: It is a wise idea to buy a brand new leash before each trip so you don’t have to worry about losing your board in unfamiliar waters.
Ding Repair Kit: Surfboard ding repairs are the best way to ensure the longevity of your surf board, protecting it from water, humidity, salt and sand grains.
Sunscreen: protect your skin from UV rays, especially in tropical countries
Board shorts: a surfer can’t live without beach wear, in or out of the water
Earplugs: earplugs protect your ears without affecting your hearing or balance.
Portable First Aid Kit: reef cuts, dehydration, headaches, and indigestion pain can be cured with simple medication.
