Lanka Living is South West and Sri Lanka's freshest surf camp. Nestled in the jungle treetops of Ahangama just minutes away from amazing warm water waves; their jungle villa has something for everyone.

They have two beautiful luxury private rooms: one with air-conditioning and one with an upstairs balcony and large private bathroom. Two standard private double rooms and a colorful, spacious globetrotter dorm. It’s important to have somewhere comfy to chill after a big surf sesh which is why they’ve made as many chill areas as they can. Their favorite being the biggest comfiest hammock in sri lanka (they’ve tested it and it can fit 20 people).

They’ve also got plenty of perfect hidey holes to have some pre-drinks or maybe an after party without bothering the sleepy heads who might have passed out already.

Their surf fitness area is the perfect space for a jungle workout and will give you the skills and exercise techniques to keep surf fit.

They understand everyone is an individual and embrace that! This is why all the packages can be customized depending on your budget and surf and fitness level.

Program

Your day at Lanka Living normally starts by sipping a coffee, taking in the beautiful jungle views from the dorm's balcony. Head downstairs, grab your board and jump in a Tuk-Tuk around 7 a.m. and you're off to your surf lesson! The expert instructors normally begin with some surf theory and ocean knowledge on the beach, before jumping into the water with you for the practical component.

Depending on the day, you might head upstairs for the Level 2 video analysis session, or down into the workout area to sweat it out at surfitness. A delicious, healthy breakfast buffet is served at 10:30 a.m. daily, so dig in and fuel up for the day! After breakfast, it's free time until you head out for an afternoon activity, trip, or free-surf.

Dinner is served in the camp five days a week at 7:30 p.m. After dinner, the time is once again yours! You can chill out around the camp and swap stories or play games over a beer. Or, if you like a boogie, throw on a party shirt and head down to one of the sweet beach parties on the south coast.

Surf fitness

Surfitness is designed to prep your body for the physical demands of surfing - work on your mobility to keep you injury free, move explosively to pop up faster, take steeper drops and bigger waves, and get your sweat on, build endurance and feel the burn in muscles you didn't know you had! Surfitness is held every Monday and Friday morning at 10 a.m.

Video analysis

Video analysis is designed to take the Intermediate surfer on a deep dive into the art of reading and taking green waves. Hone in on subtle technique flaws in your popup, make adjustments to your ride style, and of course - check out the biggest wipe outs of the day. We video our Level 2 classes only, every Monday and Friday morning, however, the team always invites the Level 1s to attend the analysis sessions - even if it's not you on the screen, learning from the mistakes of others can literally shave years off your learning curve.

Location

This surf camp will take place in Ahangama, Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, winds are offshore making clean waves, swells are consistently good, and rain is at a minimum. With tropical temperatures all-year-round and perfect waves nearly every day during the season (November-April), Sri Lanka offers ideal conditions for beginner, intermediate, and advanced surfers. Leave the wetsuit behind, rock up in just your bikini / board shorts and embrace 28 degrees+ salt water. Forget about ugly tan lines, a smelly wetsuit, and the struggle to put that wetsuit on or off and enjoy the freedom with few people in the lineup, heaps of waves and good vibes. There are waves for everyone! Here are some surf spots near to the camp:

  • Beach breaks: Kabalana Beach, Welligama Bay, Ahangama Beach
  • Reef breaks: The Rock, Rajiths, Lazy Right, Lazy Left, Fisherman, Mirissa, Rams Right
  • Point breaks: Plantation, South Beach, Madiha, Coconut

Nearby places

  • Kabala Beach - 5 minutes

Or, if you're lucky, you'll be around for our special monthly events, like Surf Camp yacht parties and Tacos n' Tattoos.

Outside of lessons and activities, you're free to do whatever you like with your downtime.
