Highly recommended to anyone who wants to improve their surfing skills or starting from scratch! My teacher Asher (sorry if I spelled wrong) was an excellent teacher. He was polite and very patient, he never rush me to do any thing but gave me the spot on advices which helped to improve my skills. Manju was an excellent teacher, too. He gave me the detailed advice and he knows what’s the best for his students. I have been to few surf schools in Europe and Surf’n Lank was the one of the best. All staff were polite, attentive, and knowledgeable. Equipment were maintained properly. All surf boards applied wax every single time when taking our for surfing. I had a wonderful experience. Thank you very much for the team Surf’n Lanka!

I visited Surf n Lanka in 2017 to learn to surf, and made 2 other visits later on. Manju was an amazing guy and the only guy introduced surfing sport to Weligama in early 2000's before any other surf schools we see there (as I was told). About my experience, under his instruction I was able to pop up on the board within 40 mins. The techniques he uses are never taught in any other place. I have progressed myself from riding Soft-board to Short-boards and white waves to green waves. I am so happy about my progress. I also must admire his calm and can-do attitude, good hospitality and friendly approach towards guests. He'd not just teach you how to surf but also ensures you get a good knowledge about sea, how to read waves, pick the boards and the whole science behind how the waves are formed. That guy know what he's talking. I stayed at his guest house which was well above the standard. I will surely go back if I ever visit SL again.

I did the 6 day package where you surf in the morning and the evening. I had so much fun. On my first day I stood up! I had the best instructor, Sami, he was always smiling and encouraging. (Ask for Sami he’s the best 👌) It is such a great location, great food, great room. It’s a very chilled environment which is perfect if learning to surf is your main aim. I loved it I can’t wait to come back. Will totally recommend to all my friends.

So i felt like i want to become a surfer and i was suggested to go to these guys. I took the 7 day package there so i lived there as well as i was taking classes. So i must say that i was be able to stand on the board on my first lesson! And also i have surfed my first green waves during my 7 day stay. I would really recommend all people who never surfed before to start here! Thank you guys!
