Tarika and Flossy were great yoga/ surf instructors. Very knowledgeable. Had such a great time with them. Breakfast was great but it would take a long time to come (don't order if you're in a hurry!)
I got upgraded from a dorm to a private room which was good.
Lovely location. And usually had the beach to ourselves. Nothing to do in WELIGAMA but you don't need a town when you have such a lovely beach.
Also, go to the house next door for dinner!!! Best food and soooo cheap!!! Lovely family and the kids will play.
The yoga mats were very worn, and the surf vests are used and hung up without being properly cleaned so you tend to wear someone else's sweaty top each time which was a bit gross.
Yoga is in the rooftop with no sun cover so it can get very hot and I did classes covered in suncream out of fear!!!
I booked the package deal for surf and yoga and for one week I spent £100 more than everyone else not on the package... doing the same thing! I spoke to the owner saying I felt like it was a bad deal but he didn't do anything about it which was a bit annoying.
Also, when I checked in i didn't really get any Info about classes etc. I'd come straight off my flight and traveled on buses so I didn't feel very welcome at first. Luckily flossy the surf instructor talked me through everything in the evening and it got so much better from there!

It's a great place to learn how to surf or just to hang out. The vibe is really chill and there is always something happening. No matter if you are traveling on your own or with someone, you are gonna have a great time!
I had a fantastic experience at The Surfer. The staff was all so friendly and welcoming. The Surfer offers just the right amount of fun and relaxation with surfing, yoga, beers, beach party, and comfy beds.
It's a great, awesome place to learn surfing. It's a really good place for intermediate to advanced surfers. The staff and instructors were really friendly. It's a nice hangout area which makes it really sociable. Highly recommended!

Everything at The Surfer was great! The resort was very new, and the rooms were big, modern, and very clean. The atmosphere with fellow surfers was awesome and Lahiru, the owner, was willing to help you with whatever you need. Finally, when it comes to surfing, the beach right in front The Surfer is a great spot for beginners.
What a place! The accommodation was great and they have really lovely and friendly staffs! The location was superb and the local beach break wave was perfect to enjoy since it was so close to where you stayed. Lahiro, the owner, has great local knowledge and was only too happy to help. The surf instructors were full of energy and they gave really good advice. Claire, the yoga instructor, gave us a lesson whenever we wanted.
It was a really good place. We had been staying there for 3 weeks. The staff was really friendly, funny, and helpful! The highest floor was good for a party and having meals! The rooms were cleaned every day. I absolutely recommend this place.
