12 Feb 2022 1 Week All Levels Split Payment Options Trips from £595

Overview

Hone your logging skills by surfing SW Sri Lanka's best longboard waves, with professional coaching from Ex-WCT Competitor Nikita Robb and Kelly Winter.

We have teamed up with a couple of the best longboarders and coaches in the country, to offer a week long longboard surf clinic in South West Sri Lanka.

The week will include intensive surf coaching from professional surf coach and ex-wct competitor Nikita Robb, with support from Australia's finest Kelly Winter, who will also be delivering the surf specific yoga class, all fuelled by delicious and healthy Sri Lankan cuisine.

Surfers must be able to take off both ways on a wave in order to join the trip. You should also be eager to receive feedback via video coaching, as well as other tips and techniques to take their surfing to the next level. If you are up for it, you can expect your logging game to seriously step up.

The week will be capped at 15 Loggers and you must bring your own board.

Trip Timeline

Here you'll find a day by day breakdown of your course.

  • Arrivals Day

    Welcome to Sri Lanka! You will be greeted with a cold coconut (or beer depending on what time it is!), settle into your room, meet the coaches and have your first Sri Lankan currry before an early night and early start the following morning.

  • Surf, Surf, Surf!

    The course kicks off on the Sunday at 6am with coffee and fruit, followed by your first surf coaching session, back to the house for breakfast, followed by video analysis / theory and surf specific yoga. At midday there's some rest time to explore the local area / lunch options, then at 3:30pm the second surf session of the day starts, the bar opens at 5pm, dinner at 7pm, sleep and repeat!  The rest day is Wednesday when we organise a local excursion.

  • Farewell

    On your final night we will cook up a big BBQ to celebrate an awesome trip and hopefully be up early to enjoy one last dawnie surf before you head off to wherever you are travelling to next.

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.

You just need to budget for 2 evening meals out, lunch and alcohol. So your budget depends on your consumption of the above. A beer at the roof top bar costs around £1.50, a local curry costs around £2 and Tuna Steak and fries costs around £6.

This trip is only for surfers who can at least catch waves comfortably and ride in both directions, ideally starting to do basic turns.

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

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.

We reccomend booking 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 they take two hours.

Yes you can book the surf course only. This starts on Sunday, finishes on Friday, with Wednesday as the day of rest. The cost is £325 including pre surf coffee & fruit, surf lesson, breakfast, surf analysis, surf specific yoga, afternoon surf session and dinner.
