You can start your course on any day except Saturday, when we are closed, leaving you free to book the flights that suit you best. Should you arrive on a Friday its fine to just have a chill day and join us on the Sunday to start your course.

To make surf tourism more sustainable one of the proven and best methods is to collaborate with existing local owned businesses. If these are of good quality we know they will grow and be able to employ more local people.

As you can see we don’t run a package of one price for your coaching, and we are able to customise the days you may require. We do recommend some excellent accommodation such as Mellow hostel and Booking through the link to there website is easy. If you wish you can ask us what we think of your choices when you have checked out what’s online.



Just 300m away from the famed Kabalana beach and 200m away from our school, hidden amongst the palm trees and lush greenery you will find Licuala. In this spacious serene garden property you will find our deluxe bungalows. The only disruption to your privacy may be a monkey peeking through the window.

The space at Licuala was designed to inspire your inner creative. Each bungalow is intentionally arranged with  artwork from around the world and eclectic design elements. The property also hosts a rejuvenating  plunge pool and stylized outdoor seating for you to enjoy your jungle sanctuary.

Visit Licuala and experience the natural serenity Sri Lanka has to offer.

Mellow Hostel

Based not far from our school, Mellow Hostel offers a great budget price for a way beyond budget experience. Many of our clients have stayed there and all with a positive experience to tell us about 

As the owner Deniz says “Mellow is a Place to feel Home.

What you’ll find in Mellow is common to what you’ll find in Sri Lanka as a whole—a connection to the people, the earth and the ocean. 

Mellow brings together a likeminded community that shares the joy of riding waves, meditating, practicing yoga, trying new things and embracing life. We believe who you are with is all that matters during your experience.

“Our co working space with fiber internet and AC makes your travel smoother and who knows maybe with some new inspirations to take home.”

“We are right at the beach, front of the beautiful sandy beach Kabalana and the famous surf spot The Rock.” 

“We love art and our goal is to spread the art of love. We host events with the artists staying with us; musicians, painters, designers and photographers. The one sitting next to you can be one of these while you are having your coffee in our café.”
