Surfing in Sri Lanka

The dream of surfing. Whether you are a beginner and want to learn everything from scratch or if you are an experienced surfer who wants to develop you, this is the journey for you. Master the waves in the warm sea that surrounds Sri Lanka! SeeĀ indexdotcom for natural resources and environment of Sri Lanka.

Your journey takes you to a surf camp and you live right by the water where you can enjoy the perfect waves. The villa you live in has a nice view, nice atmosphere and just the right surf waves right outside the door. This is the right place to learn to surf and the fact that the water is 28 degrees hot does not hurt at all. The instructors help you quickly understand how to ride the waves while the staff makes sure you enjoy yourself. If you are an experienced surfer who wants to develop your knowledge, there are courses for you. A four-hour yoga session is included during the stay so you have a chance to stretch your muscles.

Day 1: Departure from Scandinavia

Day 2:Arrival and transfer to your surf camp in Sri Lanka.

A tour is arranged in the camp and then you can take a swim in the billowing waves, relax under the palm trees or take a walk in the area to check out the surroundings. Later in the evening, an information meeting is held while dinner is served. ( M )

Day 3: Introduction and start

The weather determines how you spend the day. Depending on when the waves are at their best, you start with breakfast and surf afterwards – or start with some fruit and coffee and then eat a proper breakfast after surfing. On the beach, all travelers are divided into groups based on knowledge level. You then get a surfboard to practice on. First, an introduction is given about equipment and safety and beginners get to learn some basic principles in surfing on dry land, including kayaking and “popups”. After classes, you can linger on the beach and practice a little more, or take a discovery trip on the island. (F)

Day 4: Surfing and time on your own

New day, new challenges. You may feel a little tender in the body after yesterday, but there is nothing a second lesson can not cure! The next few hours are spent surfing. After lunch you spend some time on your own and we suggest you take a tuk-tuk to experience everyday life around you. You can also stay on the beach – with a little luck you will see turtles. ( F )

Day 5: Surfing and excursion to Mirissa

Today, the tide determines whether you should eat early breakfast and then surf, or vice versa. Hopefully you now feel more confident on the board and in the waves. The more you practice the faster you get better and there are always new things to learn. If you feel like it, you can join the crowd that gathers to have a few drinks and explore Mirissa. ( F )

Day 6: Spend the day exactly as you wish.

Some want to surf all day while others feel like relaxing by the pool, spending the day just the way you want. There are many activities to explore around the camp. You can visit tea plantations and temples, or go horse riding in the area. ( F )

Day 7-14: Surfing

The days are spent surfing and the only break is lunch, and possibly a massage. After dinner, it is a good idea to check out the nightlife again, either in Mirissa or Hikkaduwa, where there are plenty of opportunities for a successful night out. ( F )

Day 15: Last surf day

Today is the last day you can surf and develop your technology in the waves. At this point, you probably feel a little safer, catch more waves and do not get tired as quickly. You now have a good understanding of what surfing is all about, both in theory and practice. All you need is more time in the water to train and get even better. ( F )

Day 16: Departure from Surf Camp

Time to check out. The adventure is over for this time and you drive to the airport to fly back to Scandinavia. (F)

Day 17: Arrival in Scandinavia

Overnight stays

14 nights at surf camp in dormitory rooms.
