Sri Lanka. It’s great for learning, it’s great for improving and there’s enough to keep expert surfers happy too. It’s consistent, the water’s warm, and the wind allows you at least 2 sessions a day, most days. Our Beachside B&B has access to a gorgeous left-hander that you can paddle out to – straight from our cafe, Canteen. Whatta treat.

Or if the conditions are more suitable somewhere else, we’ll take you there instead. We are surrounded by waves suitable for all levels, so whatever your level – be that beginner, improver, intermediate or beyond – know that we’ve got you.

Surf Lessons

Whether it is your first surf or you are a seasoned ol’ sea dog, our Soul of Surfing sessions are designed for all levels, depending on numbers we can run four different sessions with a different focus. Our instructors can be as hands on or off as you like; we can hold your hand through each wave if you need us to, or we can hide in the shadows of the wave, giving you tips and pointers where necessary.

What are the surf options at the Beachside B&B?

  • Level 1 – 4 surf lesson (more info about what that means)
  • 4 x Soul of Surfing workshops per week
  • Board hire (hard boards only)
  • If lessons are not for you – and you can safely look after yourself – that’s fine with us. We’ll advise you where to get in the sea safely, point your tuk tuk in the right direction and be around for a chat or advice when you come back.

You can do as little or as much as you want during your stay with us – daily surf sessions at our Beachside B&B are drop-in, just let the team know in advance if you would like to join the lesson.

Wave Riding. The Soul Surfer Journey    

Our Soul of Surfing programme delivers skills and techniques with our experienced coaches to set you up as an ‘unconsciously able’ surfer across four different levels.

Unconsciously able? We mean you can surf without thinking about it.

Once you become an 'integrated surfer' – by integrated we mean you know more than just standing on a board – it’s time to move onto the next level. Each surf session also includes our seven Blue Health principles. 

At our beachside B&B we run a simpler, pared down version of the Soul Surfer Journey – for the full experience with daily video feedback, theory and workshops check our all-inclusive, hilltop retreat 10 minutes away at Tekanda Lodge.

The only requirement we have to attend our lesson is that you can swim.
