The Rock in West Sri Lanka is an exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf. Nov-April (Wet Season) provides optimum time of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the north northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south southwest. No reef break here. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Watch out for urchins,.
