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.

Instructors

Mikaela Ekfeldt
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.
Rajith Kumara
Rajith Kumara is an Ahangama guy, born by the sea with saltwater in his blood. Self-taught surfer as a child, he is now internationally certified and loves to teach people to surf. On season / off season doesn't matter, he's carving up the waves.

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
