Dewata Surf Guide

Dewata in West Sri Lanka is a quite exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf. Ideal winds are from the northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the south southwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Good surf at all stages of the tide. An uncrowded break, even when it is working. Pollution may be a hazard at this break.
