    "Absolute Empfehlung! "

    Wir hatten eine richtig tolle Zeit in Weligama mit unserem Lehrer Nero, die besser gar nicht hätte sein können. Alles ist super unkompliziert und die Surfschule super flexibel. Sie gehen auf allerlei Wünsche ein. Neben dem Unterricht war das selbst zubereitete Frühstück nach traditioneller Art ein Highlight. Hotel war top und lag schräg gegenüber der Surfschule- einmal die Straße überqueren und schon ist man da.

    Eine Surfschule, zu der man sehr gerne zurückkehrt! Wir vermissen sie jetzt schon!

    "Attentive, Fun and Professional"

    Prageet is a great coach! Being a first-timer in surfing, he ensures I'm safe and doesn't push me too hard when I'm just happily falling off my board. Our sessions were clumsy and hilarious, and thankfully they also showed a lot of improvement over time (3 days!).

    What I appreciate most about Prageet is how he makes the sessions enjoyable - with really bad jokes sometimes. He is respectful and has a good command of English, so communication was great.

    He also goes beyond just coaching by the hour by sharing tips and insights about things to do in Sri Lanka after the session. Thanks Prageet!

    "Very good experience for a budget camp"

    This is perfect for a budget camp.

    The hotel is literally across the street from the beach where you surf and take classes.

    All we wanted was a place to sleep and to surf as much as possible and we got exactly that.

    So the hotel room is very basic although you get AC which is a great plus and we got 2 surf classes per day which is a very good amount.

    Prageet is really good and made an effort to accommodate all our requests.

    Surf instructor was also really good and very technical. Taught me a lot.

    "Cheap and chill"

    The classes were interesting, Pragee is really taking time to explain each step which makes us improving a lot.

    The hotel is just in front so easy to come and breakfast was good too

    "Cheap and high quality"

    The hotel is in front which make it easy to get the class in the morning, we have choice to get breakfast before or after and it is made according to our needs which is really good when you can't eat everything like me.

    Then, the best is the class you get with the teacher, very patient and explained everything. You can pop up during the first class and every step are explained. When you fall he explain when you succeed he encourage you.

    I had a great time

    "Excellent first surfing experience in Sri Lanka"

    It was the first time for my 10 year old daughter and I to visit Sri Lanka and to surf in Weligama. Surely it won't be the last time. Overall, we had a wonderful experience with Prageeth at Surfers Paradise. He stayed with my daughter (one on one) to ensure her safety and found me another coach. I would recommend this experience to any beginner or intermediate surfers. There's definitely enough waves for everyone! Breakfast options are plenty and all are good. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Plus, he could help you to arrange transport from and to airport easily. In short, we will come back.

    Jedoch ist die Lage vom Hotel & der Schule optimal, direkt am Strand. Was am meisten raussticht, ist, dass die Leute super freundlich und hilfsbereit sind & sie stehen einem immer zur Seite. Die Surfstunden haben sehr Spaß gemacht & der Surflehrer ist immer auf die Fehler und Fragen eingegangen. Jeder Zeit wieder!

    "Best teacher in weligama "

    They are very flexible and patient for the classes. You can improve very fast. They explained very well and take time to be sure you understand. During the class they stay longer until you get your last good waves.

    The breakfast was really nice and they give us the best address in weligama.

    The shoulder massage was very interesting and good.

    I recommend this place :)

    "What you buy is what you get :)"

    I was a bit sceptical before booking the 4 day surf camp, because it didn’t look like a normal one - and it isn’t. If you want that it’s around the twice amount of money and you typical have to book 1 month in advance. You stay at a descent hostel in Weligama close to everything, and the surf camp is at the beach. If you’re travelling solo you might need to put some effort in the social aspect, but all you need to do is just being around the camp in their couches and be open-minded. They arranged a bonfire and a night out at a restaurant, which was a success to me. Time and structure might be a bit loose, but all I have to say to that is welcome to Sri Lanka - that’s very normal. If you’re unsure of anything just ask - even twice if you want to be sure. They are all very patient and helpful, and want the best for you. The surf instructors are very good at their job! They don’t just throw you in the water and push you, they actually explain before and during the surf (a lot at the camp agreed in this). They make sure that you develop, and get tips to the level that you’re at. I’m an intermediate surfer and asked to go to other spots. They arranged that which I was grateful for, but be aware that transport out of Weligama is not a part of the package.

    The breakfast was delicious - both Sri Lankan and western breakfast are possible. I asked if it could be gluten-free and they made sure of that and even made various things, so I didn’t have the same each morning.

    "Pragee was a super good and patient teacher!!"

    The people were really funny, we learned how to stand on the board quite fast, they took care of our sunburns🫠

    I came with three friends and we really enjoyed. They start again their camp and make you feel free and relax. Their team try to arrange the class the way we want and really want to make us comfortable.

    The breakfast was yummy and the place just next to the beach.

    Really nice camp with nice people

    "Flexible and relax"

    We got few classes with the camp and it was super nice. They adapt our group according to our level and we improve within few classes. The hotel is very close and the last day the place where full but they arrange a very good place for us.

    They are flexible always smiling

    "Surfcamp Weligama - 4 days"

    Had a fantastic four-day stay at Weligama Surfcamp Surfers Paradise. Pragee's coaching and explainations were top-notch, and the atmosphere was perfect for both relaxation and surf improvement. It was an amazing experience and I cant recommend the Surfers Paradise Surfcamp enough.

    "Gut für entspannte Beginner, nicht geeignet für Advanced"

    Entspannte Atmosphäre, Direkt am Strand gelegen, fußläufig zum Hostel, leckeres Frühstück direkt am Strand, nettes und entspanntes Personal, für Anfänger und erste Fahrten in grünen Wellen geeignet

    "Amazing Surf "

    The surf school was great, they were flexible with times and we went out at different times according to the waves. The surf instructor was great, he provided great advice and I really progressed over the days. He only took a few people out at a time so I had some good quality surf lessons.

    The breakfast was so nice and refreshing. It was a great place to learn and progress, I had a laugh with the staff who made me feel so welcome. Would definitely recommend 🏄🏻‍♀️

    "Meer een surf pakket ipv een camp"

    - Goede leraar

    - Lekker ontbijt, goede porties

    - Goede accommodatie naast het strand

    "Super Anfängerstunden!"

    Wir haben als Paar am 2 Tages Kurs mit 3 Surfstunden teilgenommen.

    Prageeth ist ein toller Lehrer, der es selbst bei mir geschafft hat, dass ich auf dem Brett stehen konnte, und das bereits in der ersten Stunde.

    Wir hatten vorher schon eine einzelne erfolglose Surfstunde in Australien. Prageeth hat uns sofort alles dort Gelernte vergessen lassen und mit seiner Anleitung hat das Surfen dann auch sehr schnell geklappt!

    Auch der Rest vom Team ist super nett und wir haben die Surfstunden und das gemeinsame Abendessen danach sehr genossen!

    Das Frühstück am Strand war ebenfalls klasse und lecker und reichlich angerichtet.

    "Super Beginnerkurs"

    Pragee hat mir mit sehr viel Geduld die Basis des Surfens beigebracht.

    Wenn ich wieder mal nach Weligama zum Surfen komme, möchte ich Pragee wieder haben als Teacher :-)

    Das Frühstück im Surfcamp am Strand war immer sehr lecker.

    "Absolutely great!"

    I was in the surf camp for two days with a friend and we could not be happier with our stay. Everything was taken care of: very nice accommodation right on the beach and next to the school, excellent breakfast on the beach, individual lessons (or with two people of the same level), which was great as a beginner!. Prageeth and all the staff were great, and everyone around was very chill and friendly. The bay is beautiful and perfect for surfing, especially if you are a beginner. 10/10

    We had an amazing week doing the surf course at surfers paradise in Weligama.

    Pragee is the best teacher you can wish! Very patient, competent and funny. He took care of all out wishes concerning accomodation and arranged everything. We had very much fun, learned a lot and will always come back to Weligama and the surfers paradise. Huge recommendation!

    "Best place to learn surfing & enjoy in Weligama"

    Pragee is the best instructor for a beginning surfer, he helped with everything and teaches you all you want to know about surfing (especially for your next surfing experiences after the surf camp).

    The hostel is so lovely, the staff are awesome and the breakfast was amazing.

    I really recommend this surf camp!

    "Surfers Paradise Weligama"

    Pragee was friendly, knowledgable and pitched the lessons really well to my skill level.

    The beach is nice and conditions are ideal for learning.

    Coco Hostel has a really relaxed atmosphere and is a great place to stay and spend time while not surfing.

    A great experience all around.

    "Outstanding surf camp !"

    There was a good spirit, the staff was smiling always and was very helpful in any ways you needed. Food at The hotel restaurant was excellent. Would easily come back again! Pragee was incredible good, always smiling and funny. Teached a first timer to surf green waves with a hard board just in two days :D!

    "Offseason: Guter Surfkurs aber eher dürftige Unterkunft"

    Durch die Offseason war ich einer der einzigen Kunden in der Surfschule. Ich hatte Einzelstunden mit Pragee, der sich sehr viel Zeit genommen und ich somit immer direkt nachfragen konnte etc.

    Auch sonst habe ich die meiste Zeit am Strand bzw. an der Surfschule verbracht. Wirklich eine sehr nette Truppe.

    Kurzum der Surfkurs war super!
