Yoga - Our Sri Lankan Surf Camps include five yoga classes per week, led by experienced yoga teachers. Yoga is the perfect way to stretch out and unwind after a surf, while the flexibility and core strength developed through yoga is also hugely beneficial to your overall surfing performance.

Video Analysis - This is a tried and tested technique that helps you to improve your surfing. We take lots of photos throughout your trip to help you improve as well and make for nice little memory joggers (and facebook profile pics) when you get home. The sessions are held ad-hoc and depend on how much of your surfing needs to be analysed. 

Nightlife - A couple of nights a week, you'll head out with the crew for an evening out in Mirissa, Galle or Unawatuna. This is on you, but you can get fresh Lobster and chips for around £10 in a nice beachside restaurant!

Accommodation

Opposite a great intermediate wave in double, twin, and triple rooms. Please ask your trip advisor for more information on rooms available.

Trip Timeline

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

  • Day 1 - Welcome to Sri Lanka

    Upon arrival you will be greeted at the airport by your Trip Leader and driven to the Surf Camp in Ahangama. Here you will be introduced to the team and given time to settle in before we tuck in to dinner and drinks 'Sri Lanka style'.

  • Day 2 - 6 - Surf, eat, explore, yoga, sleep, repeat.

    Expect morning surf lessons and guided afternoon sessions, mixed in with yoga and time to explore your tropical surroundings.

  • Day 7 - Party!

    On the Saturday we will head down to Mirissa for an evening surf, fresh fish dinner and then those who wish to can sample the infamous nightlife.

  • Day 8 - Chill

    We usually take the Sunday off from surfing and yoga to explore what the area has to offer. For some this may actually mean hunting out the secret surf spots, for others it’s a day out in the strangely European fortress town of Galle, or a visit to one of the moonstone mines, or maybe even just a lazy day in one of the hammocks with a good book.

  • Day 9 - 14

    Expect morning surf lessons and guided afternoon sessions, mixed in with yoga and time to explore your tropical surroundings.

  • Day 15 - Departure day

    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! Feeling refreshed, flexible and ripping on a surfboard, the team will then take you to the airport for the final farewell.

The majority of surfers on our trips are beginners with minimal surfing experience. Sri Lanka is the perfect place to learn with super fun waves and friendly beach breaks but we can also cater to more advanced surfers. Our Trip Leaders are very experienced surfers and coaches that tailor their coaching to your skill level, so you'll leave Sri Lanka an infinitely better surfer than when you arrived.

None! Sri Lanka is a tropical paradise where wetsuits aren't required. We provide rash vests to offer some protection from the sun - just don’t forget your swim wear and plenty of sun cream! The surf camp also has a range of surfboards which you can try out over the 10 days, hire is included in the price.

No - You simply need to arrive at Colombo airport (ideally not before 4am) on the first day of your trip and depart Colombo anytime on the final day of your trip. We send out more specific trip information and arrival instructions once you have secured your place, but essentially a trip leader will be there to greet you in the Arrivals hall at Colombo airport.
