Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia encompasses more than 17,000 islands.
Located close to Welligama in the village of Ahangama, this awesome Sri Lanka surf camp is as close to the ocean as you can get without getting your feet wet. There are a number of excellent surf beaches and reef breaks around. Ideal for all surfers at any level, looking to spend quality time in their shorts surfing it up all day. The guesthouse hosts a maximum of 20 guests, with those in lessons no more than 8 guests per instructor - usually less.
The surf lodge is surrounded by palm trees and wildlife. There is a relaxed atmosphere; chat usually turns to the surf that morning over a cup of coffee. In the evenings as the sun sets on another good day, the coffee is swapped for an ice cold beer and mellow tunes.
Trips to Yale national Safari park, Buddhist temples, riverboat safaris whale watching and many other day or afternoon trips are available on request.
Seasonal Open Date: November to March (closed out of season)
Breakfast is included every morning, as well as 5 evening meals.
Eating out is a must in Sri Lanka, fresh produce equals amazing local food. Think seafood and curries! Sri Lankan cuisine is one of the most complex cuisines of South Asia. Due to its proximity to South India, the cuisine of Sri Lanka shows some influence, yet is in many ways quite distinct. As a major trade hub, it draws influence from colonial powers that were involved in Sri Lanka and by foreign traders. Rice, which is consumed daily, can be found at any occasion, while spicy curries are favourite dishes for lunch and dinner. Some of the Sri Lankan dishes have striking resemblance to Kerala cuisine, which could be due to the similar geographic and agricultural features with Kerala.
This experienced team offer an unforgettable surf vacation for both beginners and more experienced surfers looking to discover a beautiful country and surf uncrowded warm water waves in the deep south of Sri Lanka. Drift off to sleep with the sound of the waves breaking on the shore then wake up for a surf check, looking out the window. From there, decide if you want to go for a sun rise surf before breakfast or wait and catch a sunset session.
Their main objective is to get you in the water as much as possible. Surfing with others at the same level is truly the best way to improve your surfing, together with learning from your own mistakes by way of video analysis.
They believe that learning to surf above all else should be safe, informative and fun. Small groups and almost perfect Indian Ocean conditions in Sri Lanka provide an excellent environment for the surfcamp to achieve this.
