Café Ceylon is located on Matara Road just across from Kabalana Beach and only a few meters from the local bus stop. It’s also short distance away from Ahangama town center and shops.

Yoga and surfing

Surf School Sri Lanka adds a twist by the introduction of Balance Boards that they practice their yoga on. Your practice will take place in either their beautiful atmospheric main hall or in their gorgeous tree shaded garden area. Each class is intentionally designed to activate your body and mind to support your surf connected balance board sessions.

“Bread Fruit Tree” sessions

"Bread Fruit Sessions" built a beach under a magnificent old bread fruit tree and in the cool shade of the trees, they experience the fun of using balance boards and balance cushions. Fully simulating surfing movements from the jump up to footwork to turning to the longboard cross step and onwards.

The "Bread Fruit Sessions" are something that everyone loves but will also have so much relevance for your surfing progression. Over many years, Surf School Sri Lanka has developed an amazing dry land coaching system that simulates your exact body movements used in surfing.

At all levels, they have had incredible success with this system. Allowing thinking to take the back seat and relying on muscle memory are the real goals in sport and they tie in so much with the Headspace mindfulness and focus training you will complete with them there.


Surfing produces a magical meditative state in nearly all who do it. The total focus makes surfing not only one of the most exciting and worthwhile activities possible but also it’s one of the most mindfully healthy.

Surf School Sri Lanka makes its program as varied as possible and the core is the two and a half hour morning in water coaching sessions. But, it’s vital for your progress that you have a rest, too. After each 2 day and 3 days coaching period, you will have a day off. Boards are available for use after coaching hours and can be hired on full days off,but careful of how tired you may become.

No matter the length of your course, your surf coaching begins on Sunday, leaving you to arrive on Saturday or, of course, a few days before. Surf School Sri Lanka plans rest days for you as well, leaving you free to relax and enjoy this wonderful island. For example, with a 7-night stay, you will start having the coaching on Sunday, have a day off on Tuesday, and you will finish this program on Friday.
