Lanka Living Surf is all about sharing the gifts surfing has given them: a better quality of life, happiness, health, strength, and fun.
Mikaela doesn't do the ordinary. After catching her first wave in 2011, she left the mundane Swedish lifestyle to pursue something more, the ocean, and began to dedicate her life to the sport. Her travels have since led to finding her own paradise in Sri Lanka where her dreams are becoming a reality and so Lanka Living Surf Squad was born.

"Summer surf camp "
The people and food were fantastic, as well as the options to go exploring and check out the local area. It is a great place to stay for solo travelers because everyone hangs out together so it’s easy to meet new people. The surf is good for beginners/intermediate surfers. I feel like I learned a lot of tips to improve my surfing. The lessons and instructors were really helpful.

"An amazing jungle villa, people and surf! A no brainer!"
The passion that Mika has put into the camp's creation is obvious, it is beautiful, it has some incredible views and sits right in the middle of a local town on a hill. It has a very personal feel, which is something you don't get with hotels and other similar hostels. Alessio and Rupa cooked some incredible food, I always looked forward to meal times! Michael and Alessio were so welcoming and were very inclusive, and with having a lot of solo travellers this is crucial, it breeds inclusivity throughout the camp. I improved my surfing a lot through lessons with Mika and Ashan. Ashan broke down my technique and then rebuilt it, and I could see the benefits within days. Then the lessons I had with Mika, she gave me some great tips to progress even further. She is very good at passing on her passion for surfing, and as a result I intend to go surfing a lot more, I am hooked even more than before! I met some great people and for someone who doesn't like going back to the same place twice I am already considering booking for next year!

"Just a fantastic experience!"
I was blow away by how friendly and involved everyone was, the staff as well as the other guests. This place has such a strong community vibe that it never feel like I was just staying at a Surf Camp or Hostel. The surf instructors themselves are incredibly professional and driven. And the food was top notch, which is always a good bonus.
7 days was just not enough time hanging out there, I would 100% stay again!

Just spent 10 fantastic days at Lanka Living. I have been on several surf trips and class myself beginner to intermediate, on other surf trips instructors sit in the line up and don’t say much. At Lanka Living every wave you catch you get 2 to 3 points to think about. Mikita and her team are very good at getting the best out of you on every wave. A chilled and relaxed atmosphere. Other guests and interaction with them also makes the trip. I have to say Tim who was there with me caught wave of the trip.
You will not be disappointed booking with Lanka Living.
Waves are plenty and you will be smiling until the end of your trip when you sadly have to leave.

Lanka Living Surf Camp was above and beyond what we expected in every way. Between the amazing jungle location, adorable home decor, 5-star food (thanks Alessio!), and wonderful team -- this trip was absolutely top of our list. We came away with new friends (shoutout Mikaela, Honey, Lia, Alessio), tons of insane / off-the-beaten-path experiences and of course knowing how to surf. Loved it and look forward to coming back! :)

Mikaela and Ellie at the camp are super friendly and helpful. The food excellent! The surf coaches were really good on a day to day basis and we were in small groups.

Die Unterkunft ist sehr schön und im Dschungel. Das Essen war vegetarisch und westlich. Es wurde gut gekocht. Trotzdem hat mir der einheimische Food gefehlt.

"Good Times at Lanka Living"
Staff and instructors were excellent. The atmosphere at Lanka Living was excellent with fun excursions in addition to surfing. We had a good selection of beaches to surf at and a good selection of surfboards to use. Very happy with my stay at Lanka Living. The breakfast and dinners were delicious!

"Lanka Living Surf Get-Away"
Loved the energy of Mikaela, Michael, Alessio, Ashan and all the rest of the team helping to run the camp.
It is well organised and yet there is a flexible, chilled vibe happening.
Things to rate on were: the airport pickup was smooth, surf lessons were informative and helped my surfing heaps; both in and out of the water, the surf spots were epic, the food was delicious and healthy. I really enjoyed the communal dinners and nights out to! Love to see you again soon! XOOs
