CAMP OPERATOR

Already 4 years ago we opened our surf school 'Surf's Up' at Weligama Beach.

We started small; at the beginning we had not more than 3 boards - but those boards we were renting out and at the same time we started to give our first surf lessons. To be honest... even though we had many years of experience in surfing our know-how about giving lessons was not very advanced. But with time the number of boards increased more and more and we figured out how to instruct and support our students in a way, so skills unfold and waves can be caught quick independently. We worked hard and today we are happy and proud for what we have achieved.

Camp operator:
Kumara:

"When I was 10 years old I tried the first time to ride a wave at Weligama Beach. With 17 years a good friend changed my life by giving me his old surfboard - it was the first board I owned and I learned how to surf with.

With my own Surfing School 'Surf's Up' I have fulfilled my dream and turned my passion into my occupation. It makes me happy to see smiling and happy faces from my students after riding their very first waves."

The team consists of three brothers, a cousin and two good friends – all good surfers and experienced surfing instructors.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS
Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots
Our surf school is located directly at the beach of Weligama Bay. This spot is a beach break surf spot and so it’s perfect for riding your first waves. The waves varies from small to big – we will prepare you for every size of wave. If you feel comfortable on your board and ready to go to another surf spot we will teach you how to feel safe surfing on a reef break. For the advanced surfers who are looking for some experience we have some really good spots where you can improve your skills.

Seasonal conditions
High season in Weligama is from November until February. At this time the temperature is always around 32 degrees and it’s almost never rainy. The water temperature is almoste the same degrees – it’s perfect – you can stay in the water for hours and you will not freeze. During the day it’s most of the time a bit windy, that’s why the waves gets a bit choppy. But in the evening the conditions for surfing are perfect again.

Crowd factor and local people
Weligama Beach is a perfect place for beginners, that’s why in peak season (15th December until 15th January) it can be crowded. Nevertheless we take care of you and give you advice how to catch the right waves without dropping someone or getting dropped. In general the vibe in the water is good and advanced surfers give chance for beginners as well. 


SURROUNDINGS / REGION

Characterization of surroundings/region
Everything you need you will be able to find in Weligama – walking distance from our surf school. If you need any “special” things you can make a trip to Mirissa or Matara (15-30 minutes by tuktuk). The whole south of Sri Lanka is a beautiful landscape full of endless beaches for surfing or sunbathing.

In general Sri Lankan people are very friendly and helpful. If they see “lost” tourists they try to help them by showing the right way – Locals are very happy if they can talk a little bit English and so they try to improve their skills. The locals at the beach are used to tourists, but as soon as you go a bit more inside the country they don’t see people from other countries very often – that’s what tourist should respect and wear appropriate clothes. Just a little advice: don’t go in swimming clothes in the town – people will look at you!

The currency is Sri Lankan rupees and 100 rupees are 0,65 USD. Living costs can be very cheap (250 rs-eat in local restaurants) or a bit more expensive (2000 rs eat in resorts).

Activities and facilities
If you are tired of surfing and you need a day off you can explore the south coast. Talk with us and we can arrange activities for you. Some things you can do are for example: Cinnamon Island, Turtle Farm, herbal garden, snake farm, river-sunset-safari, tea factory, Galle, whale watching. One activity is included in our package price.

The south of Sri Lanka is full of amazing beaches – just get on the bus or rent a scooter and explore other destinations than Weligama.  


JOURNEY
Ways to get to the camp
First of all you have to get from the airport to Colombo. It’s really easy – chose a local bus or the highway bus starting from the airport (There are busses! Don’t listen to the people outside the airport). Once you are in Colombo you can take the train to Weligama or you take another bus to Galle or to Matara. Bus and train are about 2,5 hours. From there you can either call us and we pick you up by tuktuk or you take another local bus to Weligama bus station.

If you want to go by taxi we can help you arrange a pick up transfer – it’s about 10.000 rs.

Important details
For Sri Lanka you will need a Visa. It’s pretty easy – just apply online for the ETA. It’s valid for 30 days. If you want to stay longer you can either extend the Visa in Colombo or we can also help you with this.
