Day 7 - Party! 1 DayOn the Saturday we will head down to Mirissa for an evening surf, fresh fish dinner and then those who wish to can sample the infamous nightlife.
Day 8 - Chill 1 DayWe usually take the Sunday off from surfing and yoga to explore what the area has to offer. For some this may actually mean hunting out the secret surf spots, for others it’s a day out in the strangely European fortress town of Galle, or a visit to one of the moonstone mines, or maybe even just a lazy day in one of the hammocks with a good book.
Day 9 - 14 4 DaysExpect morning surf lessons and guided afternoon sessions, mixed in with yoga and time to explore your tropical surroundings.
Day 15 - Departure day 1 DayOn your final night we will cook up a big BBQ to celebrate an awesome trip and hopefully be up early to enjoy one last dawnie surf! Feeling refreshed, flexible and ripping on a surfboard, the team will then take you to the airport for the final farewell.
Local is the delicious dish of daal curry, stringhoppers and coconut sambal. Western is a fruit plate, eggs of your choice and toast. Classic.
It will be Hatha based with a vinyasa flow, incorporating a bit of Yin yoga for relaxation.
Flights need to be booked into Colombo International airport for the 26th March, which is also known as Bandaranaike and Katunayake airport. There are direct flights with Sri Lankan Airlines from London Heathrow to Colombo airport. Departure 9th April 2017.
The SW coast is very consistent in March, usually overhead high waves with offshore wind until 11am and then onshore in the middle of the day. This is because it’s mid season and although the weather is glorious, the larger sweeps start to roll in.
In Arugam Bay the surf is usually smaller in April as it is the start of the season, so expect fewer crowds. The wave still breaks perfectly every day, meaning it's a fantastic introduction to point break reef surfing.
