Main Point (surf break), Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay Main Surfing Point aka "Main Point" is a world class surf break sometimes ranked as one of the 10 best waves in the world.

It's a right hand point break with a reef bottom which breaks along the coastline for 300 meters with 3 sections.

The wave often offers barrels to the most intrepid riders and if it isn't as photogenic as Waimea or Teahupoo, it is still a really beautiful wave and mostly a very interesting and technical break for intermediate to advanced level surfers.
