The ladies only surf & yoga week based out of our awesome Surf House in Ahangama, SW Sri Lanka, will include intensive surf coaching from professional surf coach and ex-WCT competitor Nikita Robb, with support from Australia's finest Kelly Winter and Lucy Theobald, fuelled by delicious and healthy Sri Lankan cuisine.

Expect sunrise surfs and sunset margarita's in a fun, female only environment. The week is completely hassle free and the schedule has been carefully created to enable optimum surfing progression, whilst experiencing the magical island of Sri Lanka. Rooms are either triple, twin, double or single all with ac and en suite. Breakfast is included daily, as are five evening meals. Your coaches are the best in the business.

South Africa's finest Nikita Robb started surfing at a young age, went on to win all the national competitions and made her way onto the prestigious ASP World Tour at the age of 17. A few years competing with the best surfers in the world shaped Nikita’s late teens and early twenties. She was fortunate enough to be coached by the best in the business and over the past few years has used this invaluable experience to make surf coaching her profession. Nikita finds true joy in sharing her love of surfing with surfers of all levels, from beginners trying it out for the first time to professional competitors.

Kelly Winter comes from another surf rich country; Australia, where she started surfing as soon as she could walk! Kelly also started competing national from the age of 10. Over a decade of competitive surfing, Kelly quickly realized how important the element of flexibility was to up her surfing game, which is where her interest in yoga was born. Now she is a 450hr certified yoga teacher and enjoys combining surfing and yoga into her daily lifestyle and is looking forward to sharing this magic with you all.

Lucy Theobald started her surf coaching career as a customer on a Ticket to Ride South Africa Instructor Course back in 2016 and since passing the course she has worked for Ticket to Ride in the UK, Spain and Sri Lanka. Lucy is living the dream and is passionate about sharing her passion of this lifestyle with everyone.

FAQs

Got a question about this course? Here's the best place to start. If you don't find your answer here, you can request a callback or get in touch using our contact page.

Travelers who have completed the recommended doses of COVID-19 vaccination and arriving after 2 weeks of completion of vaccination will be considered as fully vaccinated travelers. Any vaccination type accepted by the country of origin is acceptable. 

A fully vaccinated traveller must have a negative PCR test result within 72 hours of entering the country, then you can roam freely.

If you are unvaccinated you must spend stay at a Certified Safe & Secure L1 hotel/s for the first 15 days of the visit and undergo an on-arrival PCR test, followed by a 2nd PCR (Exit PCR) on Day 14.

So essentially it is easy to enter if you are fully vaccinated, and expensive and long if you are not.

All information on Level 1 Safe and Secure Hotels can be found here: https://www.srilanka.travel/helloagain/

Book a licenced transfer from the transfer desk at arrivals. The cars are fully insured and adhere to the current COVID-19 regulations set by the government. The price is set and the same price as haggling around on the ground. The return transfer we can help arrange from here and you will normally be able to share this cost with other travellers. Transfers are currently 11,000 LKR (approx £40) and take two hours.

Everyone traveling to Sri Lanka must have Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) for entering in to Sri Lanka. Visit www.eta.gov.lkfor more information.

Breakfast and five evening meals are included so you just need to budget for two evening meals out, lunch and alcohol. So your budget depends on your consumption of the above. A cocktail at the roof top bar costs around £3, a local curry costs around £2 and fancy western style meal will cost you between £5-£10. Massages cost between £20-£40, you can get full spa packages for around £50. Clothes shopping in Galle is also a must and most items are hand made locally so won't break the bank :)
