Let me tell you friend. GOOOD STORY is one of the best things that happened to me on the paradise island of Ceylon. The best vibes. Friendly staff. There is all the necessary equipment. And the most important thing is cool instructors who will teach you how to surf and love it.

Good story surf school is the best school in Weligama 👍All instructors are very kind, polite, smart and nice :)) And they are Russian 😀So if you want to try surfing 🏄‍♀️ you should go only in this school 🏫 All instructors are not only good surfers they also can teach you because they had special courses in these sphere. Don’t be afraid even during first lesson you’ll have a lot of fun:)) And maybe some bruises 🙈But it’s worth it 😀

Most expensive surf school in Sri Lanka. Not sure why someone would choose Good Story over local Sri Lankan owned surf schools with 1/6th the price and 2x the quality.

Hello, Katie! All European surfschool have the same price. We have a good place with chill zone with chairs and beanbags, a TV, water, dressing rooms, lockers for your clothes and staff, a small surfshop, the balanceboard and other exercise equipment, toilets and showers, we taking a photo/video and discuss it after lessons, all of our instructors have ISA (International Surfing Association) and Aquatic Rescue & Safety Courses certificates. And this is the quality. All that local surfschools don't have. We are more than just a surfschool. We become friends, make addicted to surfing and spend time together

Hello, Andrei ! All European surfschool have the same price :) If you buy 5 lessons it costs 220$ (44$ per lesson), 7 lessons - 280$ (40$ per lesson). We have more than can offer other schools (for example - a chill zone, dressing rooms, lockers, toilets/showers, a photo/video with discussion, and included board rent). You took only one lesson and if you took more - you will understand why :)

Was looking for a good surf teacher/guide around Weligama. I didn't want to deal with local teachers that were just pushing beginners in white water saying "paddle-paddle-popup-areyouOK?" Good Story have ISA certified instructors who help students in becoming confident surfers, understanding culture and etiquette, knowing history and other useful (or just interesting) things. Lessons consider student skills and weather conditions, I always felt well-protected even on my first riff spot. These guys are dedicated and friendly, most of them are Russian speakers. If you're addicted to longboarding - ask Max Timukhin, who helped me to progress on my first green waves with many relevant advices/corrections.
