We (my girlfriend and I) first discovered the shop because of the nice sandy entrance and booked a lesson with Niwas and Assi. Great people and good surfing teachers! During our time in Arugam Bay they also organised a taxi drive, Tuktuk rides and a safari (everything on point and on fair prices). Highly recommending this shop to everyone!

Rented a board with them for a few days. They have a wide range of boards in and for all conditions, well waxed and fair prices. You can change your board during your rental period, which is nice for smaller swell days. Service was great and the guys were super friendly. Thank you!

Last week my friend and I took surf lessons from Aswer from The Surf City and I can really recommend it! Aswer is a super friendly and easy going guy and it is clear that he has many years of experience in teaching. I am still quite a beginner, but he patiently continued to explain what I had to do to gain more confidence on the board and to get better. After the lesson it was possible to stay in the water and try to catch some waves on your own, after which it was very easy to bring the board and the provided shirt back to The Surf City by one of the many Tuktuks around that are able to carry surf boards. Long story short: I had a great time with The Surf City and would absolutely tell my friends to go there when in Arugam Bay, regardless of their level of experience.
