Learn to Surf Sri Lanka - Beginner Surf Camp

Located at the tip of India, this location offers the best of both surfing and a taste of the incredible local culture.

A typical day

  • A normal day usually starts off with an epic breakfast at the camp, and then either down to the local beach break or a short drive to a better breaking wave where we’ll do a run-through of the day, warm up, and head out in the surf.  After 2 hours in the water it’s time for lunch, chill at the beach, pool time, or maybe a trip into town. We’ll arrange dinner after sunset, and maybe the surf knocked you out so good that a film is what you want to spend the evening with, or maybe you want a drink or two – it’s totally up to you.

Who is Level 1 for?

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.
