The following is an example of a regular week at the surf camp.
Arrival day. If you pay for your transfer from home you will get picked up at the airport and driven along the coast down to Ahangama where the camp is situated otherwise you will make your own way to the camp. Check in at the surf camp and then we will show you around. Go for a dip in the ocean and just relax. Take a walk and check out the surroundings. At night we have dinner and inform you about the things you need to know.
Please arrive for check-in before 18:00 because there is a Welcome Meeting.
The conditions dictate how we spend the day. Sometimes we have a big breakfast and then surf and sometimes we just have fruit and coffee in the mormning and enjoy a solid breakfast after we surf. Once at the beach you will be divided into groups based on your previous experience and then given your surfboards. At the beach the class will start with an equipment and safety introduction and then we will start working on paddling and pop-ups on the sand if you are a beginner. This is the basics of surfing a wave. After lessons you can hang around and practice some more or go explore the island on your own. Dinner is served at the camp at around 19:00.
New day, new conditions. Body might be a bit sore from the previous day, but nothing another session can’t cure! We hit the beach and surf for two hours. Then it's lunchtime! Get a tuc tuc and go exploring or chill at the beach and try to find a turtle. Dinner is served around 19:00.
Maybe early breakfast and then surf, it all depends on the tides. Hopefully by now you are feeling comfortable with the board and the waves. The more waves you catch the faster you will develop. Every day there are new things to learn. If we are up to it we might take a trip to Mirissa for some drinks and a bit of fun on the town. If you are keen join in, if not, do your own thing. No dinner at the camp, but join us and try one of the local restaurants.
Surf, sun, fun, maybe some more surf or just take a relaxed afternoon and enjoy the pool and the camp. Plenty of activities around if you are keen: Visit the tea-plantations, the temples or go horseback riding. Dinner as usual at the camp.
Surf, eat, surf, eat, relax, massage, surf. Dinner is served and then it might be time to check out the nightlife if you haven’t already? In Mirissa or Hikkaduwa there are plenty of options. Whatever you want you will find.
Last day of your surfing week. By this stage you are up and riding and you feel comfortable. Your body is feeling stronger, you are catching more waves and you don't get as tired. You now have a very good understanding of what surfing is about, both in theory and in practice. Now all you need is more time in the water to train what you know. Dinner at the camp at night.
Check out. The adventure is over for now if you don’t do like many others and book another week. You need to have your things removed from the room before 11:00 but after that you can still hang out and relax at the camp until you are ready to leave.
The schedule and program are subject to change without prior notice according to weather, waves and other factors.
