You can choose which level suits you best based on the below descriptions of each level:
This course is for you that have never surfed before, or that haven’t surfed in a while and want to go through the basics one more time. Lapoint Camps will give you a fun and encouraging introduction to surfing, and share the stoke when you catch your very first waves. In groups of six surfers per instructor, they’ll make sure that you develop your skills in line with your level and that you’ll catch as many waves possible. It’s all about having fun together with the other surfers.
You’ll be surfing easy waves on surrounding sand beaches and easy reef breaks where you’ll have a safe and comfortable experience when you explore the waves for the first time. The instructors will pick the best part of the beach where you will be able to catch the most white water wash and broken waves and have as much fun as possible.
This level is designed for those of you that have passed the level 1 or can catch and ride a whitewater wave on your own. Level 2 will focus on getting to the outside (lineup) in waist high waves. Lapoint Camps will teach you to catch green waves and ride the face of the wave instead of going straight in the white water.
You’ll be targeting waist high green waves, and catch them just when they’re about to break. Every day, your instructor will take you to the surf spot that is best suited to catch as many green waves as possible.
The instructors will not give out equipment to the guests before their first surf lesson, so they have the right equipment for their level.
This level is designed for those of you that have passed the level 2 course or can catch waist high green waves on your own and surf frontside and backside. You’re not yet confident in head high waves on your own but you’ll surf easy reefs, point, and beach breaks with all the knowledge you need to feel confident to surf most breaks, focusing on entry and exit from the break, surf etiquette and which peak is the best for your level of surfing. This course has a max limit of six surfers per week.
During this course, you’ll learn to be comfortable in a bit overhead conditions, and Lapoint Camps will always be looking for the waves where you can have the best progress and most fun. Your instructor will take you to the best suited spot in the area each day, that being reef, point, and beach breaks.
A normal day usually starts off with an epic breakfast at the camp, and then either down to the local beach break or a short drive to a better breaking wave where you’ll do a run-through of the day, warm up, and head out in the surf. After two hours in the water, it’s time for lunch, chill at the beach, pool time, or maybe a trip into town. Lapoint Camps will arrange dinner after sunset, and maybe the surf knocked you out so good that a film is what you want to spend the evening with, or maybe you want a drink or two – it’s totally up to you.
The following is an example of what a regular week at the Sri Lanka surf camp can look like.
Times and content are subject to change without prior notification according to weather, waves, and other factors.
Sri Lanka, located east of India's southern tip, is a tropical island with world-class surf. In addition to the surf and the nice atmosphere at the camp, the surroundings are fantastic with lots of wildlife and beautiful nature.
It offers some of the most learner-friendly waves on the planet. Located near India and the Maldives, you’ll find beautiful nature, a unique vibe, and excellent conditions for surfers of all levels, whether you want to learn to surf or take your surfing to the next level.
If you are looking for a bigger range of restaurants and nightlife, Mirissa is only a 20 minutes ride away, and has something for most people. You usually go there when you are looking for some night-time adventures.
Usually, the different lessons goes to these spots:
During high season, the best beginner surf spot is right in front of the Beach Villa. It is a really nice white sand beach called Kabalana beach. It's very safe and it offers amazing long white water rides.
The best intermediate surf spot is South Beach, this is where you have the level 2 lessons most of the time during high season. It is three-minutes away by a tuk tuk or a scooter riding towards Unawatuna. It is a very safe and fun reef break with an easy and slow take off, giving you a very long and mellow right hander.
During low season, the best beginner spot is in Weligama, a 20 minutes' drive towards the south-east. It is a big fishermen town with very nice beginner conditions. It is a long and safe sand beach right in front of the town which offers you amazing white water rides to learn the basics.
During high season, Rajith's Place is an amazing reef break for intermediate and advanced surfers depending on the current conditions, where it offers different level peaks along the spot. It is located right in front of Rajith's shack and the famous fishing sticks.
You can get there with a two-minute ride using a tuk-tuk or a scooter from Garden Villa, or by a five-minute walk from Beach Villa. It is a really nice mellow a-frame with long and fun rides. The right hander in front of the fishing sticks is one of the most consistent and fun ones.
The Rock is an amazing reef break in Kabalana beach (Ahangama) for advanced surfers. You can get there with just a three-minute walk from Beach Villa through the beach and a few seconds' walk crossing the road from Garden Villa. It is the most consistent wave (both rights and lefts) in Sri Lanka during high season.
Another great wave for advanced surfers is Rams. It's a very exciting and challenging reef break wave in Midigama (10-minute ride by tuktuk or scooter from Garden Villa towards the south). The take off is very fast and the wave is short but very powerful so you really have to set a high line from the beginning and trim fast to past the section. Go get barreled!
In the low season, Sri Lanka still offers you a lot of consistent, fun waves and big size depending on where you surf. With a one-hour drive from the camp towards the south-east near Hiriketiya, you can find amazing high class secret spots with good conditions for intermediate and advanced surfers that during the high season do not work.
The Island is a amazing beach break for intermediate surfers, located in Weligama (20-minute drive from the camp towards the south-east). It offers really nice left hander.
Fishermen point's is a great reef break for advanced surfers placed in the very beginning of Weligama town, before the island. This right-hander gives you the opportunity to make at least three or four turns in the same wave and if you are lucky and the tide is low with big conditions, you could get barreled on the second section.
To get to the wave, you have to paddle for 15 minutes crossing the boat's way that are coming back from their fishing day (it is important to be aware of this and make sure you are seen by them).
Kesba Point is an amazing long left-hander. The wave does not work too often, but when it does it's high class waves where you can set six or seven turns. This is a secret spot found and named Kesba Point by Lapoint Camps (Kesba means turtle in sinhala, the Sri Lankan language). The reason why they named it Kesba is because if you have a look while waiting for the set, you could see more than three or four turtles per session.
The breakfast, which is included in all packages, consists of a delicious menu of local flavors and guest favorites such as cereal, eggs, and freshly baked bread served with jams, yoghurt, and fresh fruit.
A tasty range of meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes are available for lunch and dinner, all prepared fresh on-site by Lapoint Camps' very own chefs. Naturally, they will happily cater to any dietary requirements you may have.
The food is inspired by southern Indian cuisine and is served with rice and curry in different variations. Fresh ﬁsh and seafood is a common element in many meals. The staff makes breakfasts every day and dinners five days a week. This is included in all the packages.
They can also arrange lunches if you don't feel like leaving the camp after a long surf session. They also serve a range of snack options throughout the day.
There are some great coffee spot in Unawatuna which is about 20 minutes away in a tuk tuk. Beers at either Happy Banana or Wijaya Pizza Restaurant are good. Wijaya is also a great spot for lunch as is Poonies Cafe in Galle Fort.
Join in for some yoga and beach volleyball at the camp, or go check out the safari in the magnificent Udawalawe National Park or Singaraja Rainforest.
For other suggestions, please ask the staff and they'll happily assist you. If you want to see wild elephants or maybe even leopards, you can visit Yala National Park located about two hours from the camp.
