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, and there are many other accommodation options in the area. If you wish you can ask us what we think of your choices when you have checked out what’s online.
We recommend you use online sites such as booking.com, expedia.com and airbnb.com amongst others to find the very best prices.

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.”
