Our two boys had two lessons a day for a week, mainly with Madu and Shashi, who were great. Really friendly, great teaching, they were really sad when we left. Would recommend.

Took a two hour private surf lesson at Freedom Surf School. My coach was very good and super friendly! He always corrected me when I did something wrong so that I could learn from my mistakes. Also the beach was good for a beginner, the waves were not too big but not too small either. All in all a great experience! Thank you for that!

Me and my friend came on a surftrip in February 2022. We are very thankful to Leo and her family, to Ramya and Rani and her family for welcoming us in Weligama. This really was a dream holiday. We are also really grateful to our teachers at Freedom surfschool, who helped us even if it wasn’t our lesson time! We got a package that included accommodation, surfing lessons, unlimited rent of the equipment and breakfasts. 1. Accommodation was nice and clean, it included a fan and an AC and a cool mosquito net over the bed. Everything worked perfectly, the bed was comfortable and there was consistent hot water. We loved our room We also loved breakfasts, particularly Sri Lankan ones! Ramya and Rani were very nice and extremely friendly and always helped us with any queries we had. They also gave us a cooking lesson, which was eye opening and very tasty! In addition, Freedom villa helped us with a tour to the tea plantation and money exchange at a good rate when we needed that 2. Surfing was great. Neither of us had had this much progress in surfing in such a short time. Our teacher was Gayan, who is unbelievably patient and kept explaining everything again and again. By the end of our holiday I got significantly better at popping up and reading waves and got to catch a couple of green ones at a more advanced spot!! I would also like to thank Kirri and Munas, who also helped us and explained some aspects of surfing even though they were not technically our teachers and didnt have to do so!! 3. The boards were all in great condition. We particularly miss the green and yellow longboard We felt we were staying with family and friends and I would come back again and I strongly recommend staying at Freedom villa and surfschool as the best place in Weligama

The guest house was a beautiful place to stay. Rooms were peaceful and easy to work from and early morning yoga at the surf school, followed by 10/10 surf lessons made for the best stay. Thank you Freedom, we had the most relaxing time!
