You will learn surfing with the right techniques accompanied with friendly and experienced surfing instructors of The Surfer Arugam Bay. One instructor will guide a maximum of 2 persons. For first-timers, this shorter beginner’s class is recommended, as surfing is a physically demanding sport and can be quite tiring!

 

Level 2 surfing lesson

Level 2 surfing lesson is designed for the surfers who can catch a wave in the white water but want to continue to progress their surfing and learn safety tips, tricks, how to go to the lineup, how to catch a green wave properly, and turn so they can improve from a beginner surfing level to an intermediate one.

 

Intermediate surf lessons

An innovative and unique coaching system for intermediate and advanced surf lessons is thought of as one of the best island-wide. Booking with Sri Lankan Tour Hub is a process where they get to know who you are, where you are in your surfing, and what you want from the course. That attention to your needs and the ability to really expand your surfing is what makes them so special. They have coached right up to top international competitors and have over 10 years of surf coaching experience at the intermediate and advanced levels of surfing.

 

Developing your surfing technique

Board selection and design service is unlike any other surf camp or school. Imagine having just the right board being chosen by your own coach? A board that will really help you have more fun and advance in your surfing.

If you are just moving onto unbroken waves and your first good turns, or if you’re more advanced and you’re already trying to perfect maneuvers, then their coaching will be perfect for you.

They explain techniques clearly and always give you the correct and positive feedback that’s needed. They know they can make a huge difference to your surfing and women’s intermediate and advanced surfing is progressing all the time and their coaching and coaches reflect that too.

 

What you’ll learn.

You will cover at this level:

  • Perfecting take off / pop up
  • Acceleration techniques
  • Core balance in maneuvers

  • Fitness for surfing
  • Types of surf spots
  • Surf prediction

 

Advanced surf lessons

The advanced surf lessons are focused on helping surfers to have more fun by gaining more control and better flow and consistency to your riding in more challenging waves.

 

What will you learn in advanced surf lessons?

  • This course will help you improve your bottom turn and to learn top turns or cutbacks, how to duck dive, and how to take control of your speed. Progress from passively gliding down the wave to actively surfing it.
  • Learn how to generate speed, choose the right maneuvers to stay in the power pocket of the wave, and how to improve your paddling technique so you use less energy.
  • The instructors can also help with advanced takeoff techniques to minimize wipeouts, and help you acquire better wave-reading to avoid close-outs and get a better position in the line-up.

 

How do advanced surf lessons work?

  • The instructors will do a short assessment that will help to determine your surfing level, so they can tailor the right training programs with specific exercises for you.
  • Depending on your abilities and goals, they will help you focus on the right exercises and on choosing the right equipment. They’ll ensure you don’t limit your development through poor equipment choices, such as having too small a board or the wrong fin set-up, etc.
  • All surf instructors are skilled and professional, certified by the International Surfing Association (ISA).
  • Sri Lankan Tour Hub keeps the groups small, always working to a maximum of eight students per instructor, in keeping with the recommendation of the ISA.
