Program

Surfing

Surf & Yoga Mirissa's surf programs are comprehensive in that it not only includes plenty of time in the surf but video analysis and feedback and surf theory classes, delivered by a team over the surfing week. Each surfing session is progressive and goal-oriented for each of the participants, and at the end of the surf session, your coach will be discussing with you how you progressed learning that new skill taught on the beach.

Surf & Yoga Mirissa is careful not to mix ability levels. Therefore there will be a maximum of a 5:1 student-instructor ratio at all times. This will also mean that you will never have to wait for others to keep up or feel left behind looking at the good surfers.

Location and surf check

Sri Lanka’s southwest coast is a wave garden with more than 15+ surf spots within easy reach from the camp, with most of the breaks located within 10 minutes.

Surf & Yoga Mirissa has a comprehensive list of surf spots. Every morning, they will do a surf check online and with local surfing friends and decide which beaches to head to. This will depend on factors such as the ability level of each group and the swell conditions. This means that the chances are high that you’ll have ideal conditions whatever level of surfer you are.

Your first surf lesson

Some people are extremely confident in the waves, while other people are intimidated by just being in the ocean environment, but everyone, without exception, enjoys their first-day surfing.

The location of your first surf lesson is Weligama beach break. Surf & Yoga Mirissa is blessed to have one of the finest beginner surfing beaches in south Sri Lanka. The water is a warm, perfect sandy bottom, shallow water, and no dangerous sea life or rips current makes this the ideal starting point for your surfing vacation.

The first element of your first surf lesson will be on the beach warming up, introducing you to the surf break and your beginner board. The trainers will move on to teach you to lay on the board at the correct position, paddling on the board, and pop-up (the jump), or, if this is not available for you, another relevant method of getting up such as a 4-step method.

Now you’re ready to enter the water and enjoy the surf, but not before you learn the necessary safety techniques.

Your first day of surfing will finish with a summary of the skills which will be covered during the upcoming week, as well as what they will lead on to and that’s where the fun starts. For most of you, within five days you can aim to go out and start catching waves all on your own!

Video analysis and surf theory

In addition to plenty of time in the water, all of the guests will also receive theory lessons as well. Depending on which package you book, you also have the option to get your surfing videos free or at an additional charge from the photographer.

If you aren’t sure what level you are, have no fear! The instructors will assess your level once you arrive and allocate you to the correct group.

Surf-only package

This surf-only package is suitable for those who just want to surf all day!

This package is 100% dedicated to improving your surfing skill. You will surf on extended sessions, especially on days when the waves are ideal for your level, take part in a few in-class sessions, and do some video analysis with your coach. You will notch up your surfing level in no time.

Typical day

Your instructor brings you to the surf spot which brings the best conditions. After an effective warm-up, your surf coach will show you teach you, and help you to improve your techniques. Have the time of your life! After 4 hours (driving included) the surf session is over. You collect your board and the equipment and leave the beach together with your group to go back to the surf school.
