Program

Surf lessons can be scheduled around your holiday needs, the surf school is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and you can choose your lesson time each day. You can choose to surf in the morning or afternoon or both. Surf lessons are taught privately (one-to-one or one-to-two in your booking group). Surf lessons are one hour long and include all equipment. Breakfast is included and is available from 8 a.m. They have good Wi-Fi available.

The lessons are one hour long, and this is long and tiring enough for most people. As they teach privately, the instructors work really hard and you should expect to have no rest period during this hour. You will catch a wave, paddle back, and get ready to catch the next wave almost straight away.

The structure of the lesson will depend on your level. Beginner lessons start with a thorough explanation on the sand of how the equipment works, safety, and the pop-up technique before heading not the water. All other lessons will give a brief outline and some practical warm-up on the sand before heading into the water to put your newly learned skills into practice. The instructors will guide you throughout the lesson, giving constant feedback and tips on how you can improve.

What should you bring with you to a surf lesson?

You should bring your swimmers, shorts for guys and a one-piece swimming costume for girls, are what they recommended, a bikini is fine, but just make sure it is a secure one so you don’t lose any parts and expose yourself while you are surfing. They provide rash guards (surfing tops) for you to use and they have long and short-sleeved ones in different colors.

They suggest that first-time surfers wear leggings to avoid board rash but this is not essential. You should also bring eco-friendly sunscreen or zinc to protect your face from sunburn, they sell great Sri Lankan-made natural zinc if you need it. You should also bring a water bottle to refill water. The surf school is also next to a restaurant should you need food and drinks throughout the day.
