The land of coconuts, cinnamon, tea, and coffee, Sri Lanka is a tropical paradise and the most reliable surfing destination in the Indian Ocean. It’s also incredibly affordable and family-friendly, with a surf culture and infrastructure that just keep on growing.

Thanks to its remarkable density and variety of waves, Sri Lanka is one of the best places in the world to learn to surf and improve your skills. At the same time, advanced surfers will find the more challenging reefs and points relatively empty.

Whether you’re a beginner or already have some experience, you’d like to combine surf with yoga or solely focus on your wave riding skills, there’s a surf camp for you!
