Discover the pearl of the Indian Ocean
Sri Lanka is an exotic paradise, boasting breath-taking beauty, raw wildlife, colourful cuisine and fascinating culture. It is also home to some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.
If you're looking to surf a variety of user-friendly reef beach breaks wrapped by tropical jungle all day and fill up on the most incredible curries by night, then Sri Lanka is the one.
Sri Lanka has been on the map of traveling surfers since the 70’s but it’s still relatively quiet. Whilst most surfers head for Indonesia, Sri Lanka is receiving the same swells, but due to the deep water over the reefs, it is a great place for beginner – intermediate surfers to get an introduction to surfing reef breaks.
The waves around Ahangama range from 3 mile stretches of playful beach breaks and long left hander point breaks, to short, fast barreling rights. The right hand point breaks around Arugam Bay are World class...
Whether you're a total beginner or a complete ripper, you'll receive tailored surf coaching and be shown waves that suit your ability.
Ahangama on the SW Coast is the first destination on our Sri Lanka Adventures and the location of our surf camps. Ahangama is a true local town bursting with energy, delicious food, colourful markets and little tourism despite being home to two great waves; possibly the best waves in South West Sri Lanka.
Riders on our Coast to Coast Trip will criss-cross some of the most beautiful parts of the country through wild jungle, deserted dirt roads and rich wildlife to Arugam Bay on the East Coast. This small fishing village is home to one of the longest and most perfect right hand point breaks in the World.
If you're on the 4 week Adventure, you will spend the final week traveling through the idyllic Hill Country from Arugam Bay to Ella, Kandy and Adams Peak, visiting tea plantations, monasteries, temples and climbing the famous 5,000ft Sri Pada pilgrimage.
All accommodation is comfortable and clean with a maximum of four people per room, with limited private room upgrades available.
Nightlife Sri Lankan nightlife is interesting to say the least and something you have to experience for yourself...
Yoga Whether you're a total novice or an experienced yogi, our qualified instructor will introduce you to poses that will help you to become a better surfer.
Video Analysis This is a tried and tested technique that helps you to improve your surfing. We will also take lots of photos throughout your trip which handily double up as holiday mementos as well.
Pottuvil Lagoon Tour: Led by our local guides, we paddle on traditional crafted catamarans from the main land to a secluded beach inhabited by local fisherman. Expect to see an abundance of wildlife such as elephants, eagles, water buffalo, crocodiles and more.
