South West Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka kind of blew my mind. A lot of my friends had been surfing to Sri Lanka before, and they’d all absolutely loved it, so of course we were both super excited.

The Sri Lankans are some of the friendliest, most welcoming people I’ve ever met. It was so easy...

It was the first time I’d ever done a trip where I was trying to be self sufficient for more than a couple of nights. I did a bit of research...

The best sunscreen for surfing

Sliding off your board, white gloopy streaks, washing off as soon as you get in the sea, misting up your contact lenses… these are just some of the joys of surfing wearing sunscreen.

It’s not necessarily a bad dilemma to face (as opposed to will I need to wear a hood and gloves this morning,...
