Surf camp Sri Lanka is situated on Kabalana beach, near Ahangama, a small surfing village located 3 hours south of the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo.

 

It is a charming place with a few restaurants and a relaxed vibe. The place for the surf camp was chosen because of the fantastic villas, the mesmerizing beach, and the world-class surf. If you are craving for a bigger choice of restaurants and nightlife, Mirissa is only a 20 minutes drive away, and has something to offer for most people. The hosts and guests often go there for some night time adventures.

 

Surf Camp Sri Lanka consists of two separate villas, both within walking distance to surfing spots and Ahangama. One villa is located on the beach hence the name “Beach Villa” and capacity of 12 guests. Here you can relax on the sun deck or in the pool after a refreshing surf session just in front of the house. The other villa is located just a 5 minutes walk from the Beach Villa in the Garden of Eden hence the name “Garden Villa”, with capacity of 30 guests. The Garden Villa offers perfect chillout and hang out area at the rooftop terrace with a beautiful view to the ocean and the surf.

 

Nice beginner waves break just outside the camps. Advanced surfers will love one of Sri Lanka’s best waves – “The Rock”, which rolls on the northern side of the beach. There are many good breaks in the south of Ahangama that you can easily get to by tuk-tuk. We either surf right in front of the house or go for a search for better conditions.

 

The food is inspired by southern Indian cuisine and is served with rice and curry in different variations. Fresh fish and seafood is a common element in many meals. The staff makes breakfasts every day and dinners 5 days a week. This is included in all the packages.

 

From Mirissa, 20 minutes south of the camp, you can go on a whale safari and see blue whales close up. If you want to see wild elephants or maybe even leopards, you can visit Yale National Park located about two hours from the camp. If you would like to go shopping for some inexpensive merchandise, you have come to the right place

THE ACTIVITIES

Surf Camp

 

Sri Lanka Surf Camp is synonymous a steep learning curve, plenty of surf and meeting new people. You are free to do whatever you enjoy doing. Some people spend all their time in the water and others take the opportunity to relax or try other activities.

 

A variety of different packages, depending on your level of surfing and how long you want to stay. We know that even the most experienced riders have great benefits from valid feedback and that’s why most of the packages include instructions. 

 

Lessons for both beginner and advanced surfers. The learning curve is individual, therefore you can choose between different levels.

 

LEVEL 1

This course is for you that have never surfed before, or that haven’t surfed in a while and want to go through the basics one more time. We’ll give you a fun and encouraging introduction to surfing, and share the stoke when you catch your very first waves. In groups of 6 surfers per instructor we’ll make sure that you develop your skills in line with your level and that you’ll catch as many waves possible. It’s all about having fun together with the other surfers.

LEVEL 2

This level is designed for those of you that have passed our level 1 or can catch and ride a white water wave on your own. Level 2 will focus on getting to the outside (lineup) in waist high waves. We’ll teach you to catch green waves and ride the face of the wave instead of going straight in the white water.

 

LEVEL 3

This level is designed for those of you that have passed our level 2/can catch waist high green waves on your own and surf frontside and backside. You’re not yet confident in head high waves on your own but we’ll surf easy reefs, point and beach breaks with all the knowledge you need to feel confident to surf most breaks, focusing on entry and exit from the break, surf etiquette and which peak is the best for your level of surfing. This course has a max limit of 6 surfers per week.

From Mirissa, 20 minutes south of the camp, you can go on a whale safari and see blue whales close up.
