Beginner diving in Arugam bay - January

Hi all,

I'm hoping you can help me, I'm a beginner surfer - just getting to standing!- and hoping to do practice while I'm in Sri lanka - both lessons and somewhere open to beginners. I'm keen to try Arugam bay as I'm currently that side of the country but I've heard now (January) isn't a great time for it.

My question is, will the waves still be ok for begimmers at this time of year or is it not worth going to for surfing at all in January? Would really really appreciated any insight as I don't want to miss out but also don't want to travel that way and find there's nothing to practice on!

Subject to the above, any tips on good schools/coaches would be most welcome. I want to work hard!

Thanks so much in advance, Ellie
