The camp is great. They give you all the information you need and provide great surf guidance. The staff is friendly and attentive and the service is very quick. The food is great specially the breakfast. The after surf activities and the yoga keep you busy and insure you experience Sri Lanka like a local. Great for solo travel I didn’t not take time to make friends. 10/10 experience.

It was my first time in a surf camp and I have to say it was one of the best experiences I've had so far. the camp in weligama is beautiful and very close to the main beach. i learned so much about surfing in 10 days and my skills improved fast. the team is super nice. the guides make an effort and are good at imparting their knowledge. The management always tries to fulfill the wishes of the guests. I can't wait to come back. thank you kima for this great experience

The food, the surf guidings, the camp itself, the people... We will definetly come back! As we already stayed with Kima a couple of years back in Cangu, we wanted to try Kima Weligama and again had an awesome vacation 😊 Sri Lankan people still suffer a lot from the economical circumstances, but there are no effects on tourists. Indeed traveling now helps!

I came here to get a few lessons on surfing and chill. I left with a wealth of knowledge about surfing, and a very clear line for continuing education of the sport. The staff and facility is absolutely wonderful, and the food is excellent. Highly recommend long stays here!

This place is absolutely gorgeous & chill, decorated with so much love for detail & cleanliness is impeccable. The service team is amazing, very attentive and so so nice. All the surf instructors are doing an awesome job and no matter which surf level you’re currently at you will make progress for sure during your stay 👌 Off-season has some tricky conditions, but these guys did their absolute best to get us some beautiful waves. Last but not least: best.food.ever!!!! I had a lovely time and can absolutely recommend staying here - no matter if you’re a couple, a group of friends or traveling alone.
