It is actually pretty simple.Both the Beach Camp and the TS2 Weligama Surf Camp are located just off the surf break in Weligama at two really beginner friendly spots. Just next door you have more surf spots to enjoy and also some secret spots where you can surf peacefully. Our team of seasoned and experienced surf instructors only take four people maximum per instructor for each surf lesson.
The owner and management of the hotel is Lahiru,a local Sri Lankan who knows all about the local scene and a licenced qualified ISA/ISL surf instructor.
The surfer beach camp is located on the beach side and right in front of a beginner beach break, TS2 Weligama Surf Camp is located 100 meters away from the beach near the Taprobane island Weligama.
The surfer beach camp has the roof top bar ,swimming pool facilities but TS2 Weligama Surf Camp is designed for budget surfers and non-surfers with a roof top simple chilling restaurant
But guests from either accommodation are always welcome at the surfer camp by the beach anytime to hang out with us and join us for special events!
Everyone would like to get it right with the weather and surf conditions. To start off we can tell you that there are two coastlines in Sri Lanka where you can surf: one is the east coast where the season starts from May to October and other one is the south coast where the season starts from October to April. The Surfer is situated on the south coast which has the longest surf season with the largest number of surf points to choose from.
October to April gives dry and sunny weather condition to the south coast, water temperatures will be around 27°C-30°C which gives you a great opportunity to surf without a wet suit. The combination of head high glassy waves, long periods and offshore winds creates the setting for perfect surf conditions for anyone from beginners to advanced surfers!
May to September is off season for surfing but still great temperatures and conditions for other travelers. The so-called monsoon period only delivers some rain at night and the rest of the day is always great weather!
The instructors are all experienced surfers and speak English fluently. All of them are native Lankan, Germans, Dutch, Scandinavians or British. They all have a good knowledge of the local areas and surf spots!
If you are bit of a planner then you could get back and forth from anywhere in Europe pretty cheap. Our personal experience is that Qatar and Emirates have an unbeatably good combination of price and quality.
That is absolutely no problem. Let us know your flight details and we will arrange an airport pick up. The drive is around two hours. The driver will meet you at the airport and this will save you lots of travelling and hassle. It will only cost 100 $ in total for up to four people plus luggage & surfboards. We would highly recommend?this to anyone as it is great value for the money.
