Beginner Lessons

If you’ve never surfed before, or are relatively new to the sport, then the beginner lessons will allow you to have fun improving your surfing technique in a safe environment. The beginner lessons are taken on a beach break which provides the optimal conditions to learn in and using soft-top surfboards for the fast progress and safety of the students. During the beginner lessons participants learn the correct take-off technique and put this into practise in the whitewash. The warm waters of Sri Lanka’s Southern Coast make for a very enjoyable place to learn to surf!

Intermediate Lessons

If you have progressed out of the white-water and are experienced enough to catch green, unbroken waves, then the intermediate lessons will see you improve your consistency and control in the water. The intermediate lessons will also teach you how to read the waves better and become a more independent surfer. The instructor will choose a surf spot suitable for the day’s conditions and the abilities of the students, whether it be a beach break or a reef break. Furthermore, the instructor will help each student select the ideal board from the large quiver the camp has to optimise their progress, whether this be a soft-top board or a Sunova shortboard. With the surf camp’s intermediate surf lessons, you can guarantee you’ll have fun taking your surfing to the next level in Sri Lanka.
