The Main Point
This is the main break at Arugam Bay. Some people say its one of the 10 best surf places, we just say its a very very fun wave with long peeling walls. The Point is a right-hand reef break that breaks at the headland in front of Arugam Bay. It is also the best swell magnet of all the points and you can almost always guarantee that the The Point will be a couple of feet bigger than any of the other breaks. It breaks from anything between 2 and 6 feet but tends to max out after 6 foot. On a good day it provides a clean rideable wall that will barrel in the sections and give you a 400-meter ride right through to the inside. "LONG LIVE THE POINT"
Pottuvil Point is every surfers dream tropical wave. A long deserted sandy beach doted with some huge boulders at the waters edge, make this wave a favourite with some of the season veterans. Less crowded because of the 30min. tuk tuk ride north from Arugam Bay,
This is the smallest of the three points, and you need a medium to large swell for Elephant Rock to work at all. When the point is 6 foot then Elephant Rock will be 3 foot.
It is however a perfect wave for the beginner or long board enthusiastic. A suckey take-off section over sand leads on to a long wall that breaks right down the point for about 400 meters much like inside Pottuvil Point. It's very popular by surf schools so every wave will be a party wave:).
Bring lots of water and make sure that your tuk-tuk driver is there to pick you up after a session and a cool walk back around the rock.
