Extended Description

Surf Lessons Package

Full Package based on 2 sharing

Surf camp is for beginner to intermediate surfers

 

Reduced package for single travelers

This reduced package is for those people who would prefer a lower price than the single supplement but are travelling alone (we have only double rooms). Therefore they pay the same rate as if they were sharing the room but receive less in the package. We hope this gives people more choice for budget.

An intermediate rider is a surfer who can successfully paddle out alone and catch and ride waves to a logical finish frontside or backside, confidently using the three basic surfing turns - bottom turn, top turn and cutback.

Weather

Lying just north of the equator, Sri Lanka enjoys a tropical climate with high temperatures year round with sea temperatures to match (around 28-32 degrees Celcius). Upland areas are cooler and more temperate, and coastal areas are cooled by sea breezes.

There are two monsoons, which give the south-west region its dry, sunny weather and offshore wind between November and April. This is also the time for the best swell conditions giving days and days of glassy waves. The wet monsoon gives unsettled weather May-September, although rains aren't as bad as often thought.

The east coast has the opposite weather pattern and so has it's dry weather May-September.
