Bandula and his team gave me, my wife and two sons (6&10 yo) a education at surf beach. Every aspect of the class was highly professional and they all took great pride in their work. After those two hours it was easy for us to continue the surfing experience on our own, since we all (especially the kids) got hooked!

My teens have surfed all over the world and said that these are some of the best lessons they’ve ever had. Great tuition. Great English speaking. Would definitely use again in the area.

Bandula and his crew are phenomenal professionals. The surfing education was top-notch! We also used Bandula and Upal, his business partner, to organize our entire visit in Sri Lanka. The quality of the surf experience was mirrored in the excellent tour around southern Sri Lanka. I would highly recommend their services both in and out of the water.
