SURFING IRELANDS COLD GIANT WAVE

Sri Lanka's First All-Female Surf Club

Founded in 2018, the Arugam Bay Girls Surf Club (ABGSC) is the first all-female surf club in Sri Lanka.
Our vision is to enable surfing to become a culturally accepted and recognized sport for Sri Lankan women. We seek to get more Sri Lankan women on waves and empower them through surfing.

Shamali Sanjaya grew up in Sri Lanka thinking surfing was only for boys. She finally tried the sport when she was an adult and got hooked. She was criticized by people who didn’t think women should be at the beach catching waves. But Sanjaya wasn’t about to bail. She stuck with surfing. Today, she is connecting women and girls of all ages to the sport as the president of her country’s first all-female surf club.
