I booked 3 nights and end up staying 10

Staying in ts2 just to sleep, wich is quiet and very confortable, easy to go eat and surf at the other surf camp" the surfer"

Staff was very good and cool,

Surf lesson great, different teacher every day to learn different technique, they are all very good, i was surprise to improved so quickly

Great location quiet but near the beach and surf spot

Great place to meet people, chill or being part of the event each night (spécial diner, surf photo review...)

I will definitly go back !!!

"The best vacation!"

Amazing location, beautiful nature around, wonderful people there, guests and staff! You get to find new friends from all over the world! The camp is the perfect choice for both solo or non solo travelers. The vibe is so cool there, so chill and fun at the same time.You will find yourself smiling for no reason at the end of the first day, promised:) Surf and yoga lessons for all kind of levels. The instructors :Charlie Big Sexy, Walter, Matt, Nany, Lucie- all of them have a different and passionate approach to surfing and teaching so each one of them would add more and different knowledge to yours, even if it is zero at the beginning :) Lahiru- the owner- so cooperative and nice! I felt like I'm part of a big happy family and can't wait to go back there as soon as possible! Love you guys all, you rule!!!

P.S. I'm not from The States at all, I'm from Bulgaria, don't know why it comes up like this :):):):)

"Best surf camp"

The Surfer is situated in a pretty quite place. It takes 3 minutes to get to the beach or to the road with tuk-tuks ready to get you wherever you want.

The rooms are pretty spacious, cozy and have balconies, AC, a lot of wall outlets, so pretty much everything you need.

There are a lot of activities to enjoy. Every night there is something planned by the staff, so you can just go with the flow.

The staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean and the food was amazing, so they do their job pretty good.

The surfing instructors were very helpful, attentive and overall nice. I really enjoyed being coached and the insight I got improved my surfing skills to a different level.

One of the best things about the Surfer camp was people who stayed at that place. Cheerfulness, friendliness and positive vibes never leave this place.

Absolutely recommend choosing the Surfer for a place to stay.

"Amazing surfcamp!"

That place is just awesome! I was there for two weeks in february and came back for few more days two months later. If you are beginner in surf or you already surf before and you want to improve, this is the place to go! All the surf instructors are super nice and give you good advice. I definitely improve in surfing! Everybody is super chill and relax, the vibe is good. The owner and all the surf camp team are really nice and helpful. Also, I really liked that it’s easy to walk from the camp directly to the ocean for the lessons or chilling at the beach.The pool is also a good place to chill. I have done few yoga classes on the rooftop during the sunset, the teacher was really competent and it felt so great after the surfing :) Plus, the food was very tasty at the camp. Everything was just perfect and I will definitely go back! :D

"A total surfing experience"

I booked The Surfer's surf camp after doing research about surfing for exactly half hour because it was reasonably priced and not too far from where I live. I could not have made a better decision. It is such a fun camp with a brilliant set of instructers who managed to get a lazy bum like me look fwd to each day of this amazing sport that is gruelling and chilled out at the same time. The satisfaction that comes out of catching a wave is unmatchable and i couldnt have done it without the environment i was in. There are cool events organised every night where i met some great people. The meals are great and the accomodation is clean. Thanks to lahiru and his team i know i am hooked to surfing. Would highly recommend surfing at theirs for its cheap prices, wonderful people and great surfing beaches.

"Great Stay"

I stayed for a week at the Surfer and it was great! Surf lessons are very good : quality material and great instructor. I never surfed before, and now I feel like I can try to catch some waves on my own.

I was in a dorm, and it was very nice as well. The bed was confortable and the room was very clean! The food was good, and most importantly, the people were super nice! People from all around the world, and great ambiance at the house! And you're right next to the beach, literally 1 min walk.

I'd 100% recommend the stay!

"Best place in Weligama to learn how to surf and do yoga!"

We loved this place! Initially we only booked it for a week and ended up staying there for 11 days and even long after our check out we keep hanging out here because of the great atmosphere and amazing staff/instructors! The instructors are super competent and the surf classes are for every level. The Yoga takes place on the rooftop with sunset and ocean view every evening and is very well lead. 10/10 would recommend this place and I could definitely see myself going here again! Apart from surfing and yoga there are always evening activities like movie nights, drinking nights, Diashows and much more!

"Perfect "

The location of TS2 is great, just 5min away from the Surfer, a really nice place to stay especially if you are travelling alone, you will meet new people easily everyday, the atmosphere is really fun and welcoming. The surf and yoga instructors are excellent, professional and friendly. There are many cities to visit and activities to do near Weligama.

"2 amazing weeks in The Surfer Weligama"

I spent 2 amazing weeks in The Surfer Weligama! Met a lot of nice and interesting people from all over the world. I would definitely recommend to come to this Surfcamp. We had cool parties, good food, everything is really good orginised in the Camp. Thanks a lot on the surf-teacher Alec! I've learnt so much and can read the weves much better now :-) The place is perfec for biginner-surfers, for andvansed level they make guiding-sessions. The only thing I missed during these 2 weeks is to see some other surf-sports of Sri-Lanka.

"A bit unorganized, but fun and chill vibes"

The food is really nice, they have activities every night (movie, night out etc) and the location of the main camp is at the end of the beach where it’s a lot calmer and less crowded than on the main part

"Perfecte locatie om te leren surfen"

De locatie, de instructeurs allemaal goed op elkaar ingespeeld, lessen goed uitgelegd en met veel positiviteit en geduld wordt je opgeleid! Het hostel is een mooi gebouw, lekker zwembad en heel fijn dat "het restaurant" op het dak zit. Voor rustige ontbijtjes en leuke feestjes.

"Amazing place and surfcamp"

I really enjoyed this surf/yoga camp and I definitely recommend this place! I stayed for 4 days at TS2, a nice and clean accomodation. TS1 located on a good spot next to the beach with a nice swimmingpool. The staff and owner where really friendly and helpfull. The instructors where excellent. A great vibe, good food (also for vegetarian people), amazing party's and it was easy to meet other travelers. The yoga classes where holded on the rooftop with a great view.

If possible I would have stay longer!
