Are you planning a surfing trip to Sri Lanka? Let us tell you that Sri Lanka is not only a number 1 kitesurfing destination, but it is also a top-rated surfing paradise. Kalpitiya is the place to kite in Sri Lanka, but it is not the best spot to surf in the island.
If you really want to surf among the best waves on the island, better you head South. You will find countless surfing spots down in the south where you can catch the biggest tubes. Yet, if you are a bloody beginner, here you have our recommended surfing school for your first steps into surfing.
Freedom Surf School, Weligama was established in 2012 by Ruwan Sanjeewa. Before this, Weligama Bay was an over grown jungle. A few locals began experimenting with planks of wood in the ocean and they realised that it was possible to surf and somehow got hold of a surf board. From then on surfing became a craze in Sri Lanka.
They are extremely excited to have their own Freedom Surf Villa that opened for the 2017 season. The Surf Villa is a home away from home with private rooms, a surf hostel vibe combined with a relaxed surf camp experience. They provide their customers with comfortable and quality accommodation in a peaceful setting, a real home away from home.
