What could be better than starting your day in the waves with a surf session and an experienced instructor by your side? After the guided session, you can keep the board and catch some more waves. When you are starting to feel surfed out, restore your energies and then get back in the water for your second surf session with an instructor in the afternoon. Again, you can keep the board afterward and ride the waves till the sun sets behind the palm trees of Weligama. Join the yoga class in the evening, followed by a meditation. You will be shown how to relax the tired muscles to be fresh for another full day of surfing and fun in the turquoise Sri Lankan waters. Get stoked, stay stoked!
