What to Expect
Your Sri Lankan surf and yoga escape will be spent nestled in the palm trees, staying at the luxury beachside Surf House in the coastal town of Ahangama. The Surf House is tucked 50m into the lush jungle, away from the hustle & bustle and opposite one of the most consistent waves on the South West Coast. It is located within a 3 mile stretch of coast with both reef and beach breaks, offering variety for all surf abilities. Most surf spots are within walking distance or a short tuk-tuk ride, so its a stones throw back to the Surf House to unwind and relax after your surf.
All rooms are en-suite and there are shared (up to 3) and private rooms available, with a choice of fan or air con options. Offering comfort and choice to suit solo travellers, couples or friends. Spend your daily free time as you choose, relax in the hammocks with a book or in the roof terrace bar, take a stroll on the beach to top up your tan, or explore the surrounding area, fascinating culture and amazing local cuisine.
Sri Lanka is known as 'The Pearl of The Indian Ocean' due to its incredible natural beauty, extraordinary biodiversity and it's precious gemstones.

What past riders say
Fun waves and the friendliest people - simply the best surf trip ever.Will Jessup
This was one of the best vacations of my life! Surfed a lot, met amazing people and there was a great atmosphere at the surf camp. Beautiful beach right in front of you and the surf camp is situated in a very authentic and local area. Max, Angie and Lee were amazing, ready to meet everybody's needs and create a friendly, chilled out and sparkling vibe.Elena De Besi
I had a great time in beautiful Sri Lanka, surfing in clear blue warm water and making new friends, shame it was all over too quickly!Pat Porter
Sri Lanka is beautiful with blue green sea, unspoilt beaches and perfect waves. Two weeks of paradise with amazing people, eating fantastic food and drinking arrack. Partying from sunset to sunrise...The surfing was pretty sick too. Thank you!Siobahn Hill
Sri Lanka - friendly and beautiful with the funnest waves! Great place to explore and build up confidence in the waterMari O'Connor
My TTRide trip to Sri Lanka was just insane! The country is absolutely incredible, all of the people I met were super fun and friendly and my surfing ability has come on so much. I can't wait for my next TTRide adventure!Ellen Rudge
Fantastic trip and a great atmosphere throughout the entire time. I’ve met so many great people on this trip, with whom I hope to stay in touch and reconnect in the future. I was lucky enough to be put in a single room, which was a bonus and made a huge difference to the overall experience. Great vibes at Sion Surf camp, amazing time and great staff there; their BBQs are legendary by now. Everything was well organised before the trip and during the entire stay, and Max and Josh made sure everything went smooth, were very responsive to anything we have raised with them, or whenever we have asked any questions and also well connected with our group. It was quite intense first two weeks, packed with yoga, surf, and more surf, but in a good sense. I loved that we could see our videos and photos from each day trip and see our progress and receive feedback. I have never had that before in any of my surf trips (even organised ones) and it really makes a huge difference to improve, if you can see yourself and get a feedback on your surfing. Also Olly and Rodger our local surf instructors were very nice and wanted to ensure we had fun and catching waves, even when the swell was small. I can say the same about Fasal from Arugambay, who gave us very useful tips before each session. It was definitely one of my best surf trips, I somehow magically managed to progress to much shorter board, I thought it would take me another two years to ride! It was a great holiday, one of the best.Irena Miroforidu
Sri Lanka, a stunning country to learn to surf in! Perfect for beginners, and intermediates, and made all the more special by a great coaching team of Josh David and Max! Don’t think about it! DO IT!!Lisa
The best way to sum up TTR trips is 'good vibes'. From the surf instructors, yoga, camp staff and the weird and wonderful people you meet on the trip, the good vibes are always flowing. Couldn't recommend a TTR trip more if you want to improve your surf, practice yoga, explore a stunning new country and drink local beers with awesome like-minded people along the way.Ellen
Loved the trip, first surfing experience abroad to remember. Can't speak highly enough of Josh as an instructor and general organiser of daily activities as well as David and the Sion instructors. Will definitely be back to sri lankaElin
