Buy Surf board / SUP or Rental

Surf board rental Costs
Board rental costs about 10 USD per day, but you should be able to negotiate down to 7 USD in low season or for renting one long-term. The general condition of boards is improving slowly with more investment. If traveler spends less number of days on surfing it is best option to rent surf board from Weligama beach. If traveler plan to surf around the Island it is a good option that bring your own board from home. But if  you bring your own surf board you need to bear additional cost for travelling and transporting the board around the Island. Another option is to buy and resell if you are coming for more than a month. Try the South Surf Community or Sri Lanka Surf Community (opens in new windows) Facebook groups if you want to sell.

Surf board renting scams?
There are some very popular scams played out with rental boards, but there are some good and honest businesses out there too. Ensure that you check the board over well and make a note of any existing repairs or holes. It is better take a picture from mobile before you start surfing. And make a special attention on 'Fins' because most common scam is on loosing surf board fin while surfing. And ask and check whether the fins are original or the repaired before. It is standard practice to leave a passport or driving license as insurance but this puts you in a difficult position if the worst happens. The best advice is to agree on a price that you will pay if the board is, for example, broken in half and unusable. Some renters have charged the new price for breaking a years old board!

Surf board repairs
Board repairs are extremely expensive in Sri Lanka but the guys in general do a good job. Just be careful of the Sri Lankan surfer in the line up with the dented board. He might just be there to engineer a collision with you to give his friend some repair trade. In such a scenario that if the fin is broken or damaged: first negotiate with the shop owner,  duplicate fin repair may costs around 35 USD. If the negotiation does not work contact your accommodation or local guide, and try to repair and give them back, there is a surf board repair person in Midigama area (where your accommodation or local guide knows the location). If you face any disturbance do not hesitate to contact local police by simply dial 119 from mobile.
