HOW ARE THE WAVES BETWEEN OCTOBER AND MAY?
The reason to operate between October and May is because of the consistency of the surf as well as its favourable weather and winds. It rarely gets big and it rarely gets flat. There is always soft, friendly white water on the inside for building confidence on specific board skills and typically smooth, unbroken waves each morning, perfect for more experienced guests and level 2-3 surfers wishing to challenge themselves.
WHAT IS THE GUIDE TO SURFING GUEST RATIO?
Simply put, we stick to an upper limit of 1 : 3 guide to surfing guest ratio. Also it’s important to note that we do not mix ability levels, therefore you will feel more comfortable with our selection of surf spots.
WILL I GET TO KEEP MY ALL MY SURF PHOTOS & VIDEO FOOTAGE?
Yes, of course, as we believe it’s your right to have them. We will dropbox you the images and videos once they are processed, usually before 30 days after your departure. This comes absolutely FREE of charge.
IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIFIC I NEED TO BRING FOR SURFING?
It’s nice and warm in Sri Lanka so all you’ll need is a rashie and pair of boardshorts. We will provide you with a Rashie if you don’t have your own. Don’t forget sunscreen too! It can be difficult to find these items locally, especially 40+.
DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN BOARD?
Surfing equipemt is not included in the guiding packages. So if you’re a level 3 or 4 surfer accustomed to riding a particular size or shape board you can contact us for more info on getting your equipment here. alternatively, you can rent them from us, or nearby surf shops.
