Surfing mirissa beach is a surface water sport in which the wave rider, referred to as a “surfer,” rides on the forward face of a wave, which is most often carrying the surfer towards shore. Waves suitable for surfing are found primarily in the ocean, but can be found in some lakes, in rivers in the form of a standing wave or tidal bore. Surfing can also be done in manmade sources such as wave pools and boat wakes.
The term “surfing” refers to the act of riding a wave and not the form in which the wave is ridden.
Surfing can be done on various equipment, including surfboards, longboards, Stand Up Paddle boards (SUP’s), bodyboards, wave skis, skimboards, kneeboards, surf mats and macca’s trays.
Mirissa beach break is where beginners learn surfing in Mirissa. The Mirissa break is rarely surfed by the experienced except for when the main point is crowded in Mirissa. The wave could generate as far as where the Mirissa main point wave generates but comes a long way to break at the shore.
Mirissa has a fine-looking right point which has good waves if the swell direction is right.
It’s a safe bet if the wave height is more than 7 ft in the main break the Mirissa Beach break can be found right before the rock cliff of the main point. There are many body boarders who find this point attractive. The wave could close out at times, leaving you stuck in the sand for a second or two if the wave is powerful.
