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.

No, you’ll need to make your own way there, but we can pick you up at the airport. ✌🏻
Are there any stand-by spots or unlisted beds available?
You are always welcome in our home, but if there are no spots available on the website it means we are completely full that week.
Can my start-date be flexible?
An important part of what makes a stay with us so special is the way our guests connect through the week. The start dates listed are therefore the only start dates available.
I want a room to myself, how do I do that please?
The best – and only – way to get a single room is to book a double room with 1 pax. (Yes, this means you will have to pay for the entire double room)
How do we book different surf levels for each guest in the same booking?
Please book the stay you want with all the surfers at the same level and send us an email at info@lapointcamps.com with the booking reference and the names for each level. We’ll sort you out, no problem!
I want to shred hard all week. What happens if the ocean does not deliver during my stay?
