The reason to run our surf camp in South Sri Lanka is because of the consistency of the surf as well as its favourable weather and winds. It rarely gets big and it rarely gets flat. There is always soft, friendly white water on the inside for building confidence on specific board skills and typically smooth, unbroken waves each morning, perfect for more experienced guests and level 2-3 surfers wishing to challenge themselves.

Simply put, we stick to an upper limit of 1: 4 Instructors to Students ratio. Also it’s important to note that we do not mix ability levels, therefore you will feel more comfortable with your instructions.

We have an in house photographer who can take photos of you from the land, drone, and water. You can buy these professional photos from him. Videos taken for surf analysis will be shared with you free of charge.

It’s nice and warm in Sri Lanka so all you need is a rash guard and a pair of board shorts. We will provide you with a rash guard if you don’t have your own. Don’t forget sunscreen too, It can be difficult to find these items locally, especially 40+.

Surfing equipment is included with in the surf camp packages. However, if you have your favourite personal board, feel free to bring it down as well.

This is not a must, but an advantage to feel confident in the water, and maximise your progress and enjoyment.
