You will learn surfing with the right techniques accompanied by friendly and experienced surfing instructors of The Surfer Weligama. 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!

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.

Board selection and design service are 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.

 Location

Retreat location

Hiriketiya Beach

This recently discovered bay is described by all who visit as ‘Paradise’. Hiriketiya Bay is, without doubt, the premier beach of South Sri Lanka. Away from the commercialized tourist zones, Hiriketiya bay feels like a home away from home. Nearby undiscovered bays make the far south coast a hidden gem of swimming, walking and biking trails. Prevailing easterly or westerly winds are kept away by the horseshoe shape of the bay, making swimming and surfing conditions safe all year round.

It is located 22 km (14 mi) east of the city of Matara. Dickwella is noted for its long sandy beach which is protected by headlands, reefs, and sand-bars, making it safer for swimming. Distance from Tuk Tuk Bay – 20 minutes (11 km).

 

Blow Hall (Hummanaya)

The name Hummanaya is attributed to the noise made when the water gushes up the narrow fissure.

Watch the seawater spurt out to towering heights when it thrusts water against the narrow rocky cove and pushes it through a hole in the rock bed with a ‘wheezing’ sound. Sometimes when the wind conditions are favorable the water sprouts up to a height of 30 meters. This is a rare and exciting natural sight and has been a crowd-puller for many years. Also known as the Hummanaya.

 

Rekawa Turtles Beach

Five species of turtles struggle ashore to lay their eggs on Rekawa Beach. Groups are led to nest sites to witness these beautiful creatures. some nights the commotion can be deeply disturbing for the turtles. Until the management of the project improves, it’s difficult to recommend these tours wholeheartedly.

Turtles nest here all year round, but the main season is April to July. The rarest turtles to sight are the giant leatherbacks. The company uses certified guides and spotters; note that torches and flash photography are prohibited.

 

Mulkirigala Historical Temple

Dangling off a rocky crag 16 km northwest of Tangalla and nestled away among a green forest of coconut trees are the peaceful rock temples of Mulkirigala. Clamber in sweat up the 500 or so steps and you’ll encounter a series of seven cleft-like caves on five different terraced levels. Housed in the caves are a number of large reclining Buddha statues interspersed with smaller sitting and standing figures.

Temples, in some form or another, have been located here for over 2000 years, but the current incarnations, and their paintings, date from the 18th century. Nearby is a Buddhist school for young monks.

Pali manuscripts found in the monastic library here by a British official in 1826 were used for the first translation of the Mahavamsa (Great Chronicle), which unlocked Sri Lanka’s early history to the Europeans.

Hiriketiya Jasper House (3-star hotel)

Surrounded by leafy coconut palms and ocean views, Jasper House sits on a quiet point at Hiriketiya. Jasper benefits from a degree of separation, making it perfect for those looking for a relaxing break. It’s only a few steps to the surf, take in the view from the rooftop lounge, stretch it out in the yoga shala, enjoy the rock pool or take a short stroll to the beach cafes that line the shore.

Rooms

Open-air rooms invite the sounds of the ocean and swaying palm trees into a relaxing space that fills your soul. Combine this with onsite yoga, pumping surf a stone’s throw away, a beautiful rock pool and sunsets from our rooftop lounge – you will not want to leave.
