In close proximity, you’ll also find local markets and temples to explore. And Fridays are our favourites, when the entire surf camp heads out to an authentic Sri Lankan experience at one of the national safari parks, a snorkelling adventure with sea turtles, whale watching, wild water rafting and other fun day trips and nights out on the town!
Here in Sri Lanka, you’ll be spending your time in paradise surfing and living in style! Nestled between palm trees and other tropical plants, you’ll find in your stylish and spacious bungalow a home away from home.

At Star Surf, we pride ourselves in delivering the best surf lessons. With more than 3000 surf holiday guests learning to surf with us each year, a professional and enthusiastic approach to teaching surfing is what defines our surf lessons. All our surf instructors are experienced, fully licensed and qualified and also have a lifeguard qualification to provide a safe environment in and outside the water. To be able to guarantee a high standard of surf lessons, but also provide a wide range of surf holidays and surf destinations all over the world, we have carefully selected partner surf camps which share our values in teaching and our passion for surfing.
In Sri Lanka, the maximum number of surfers per lesson is eight per one instructor, and we provide both beginner and advanced surf lessons each day. All our surf packages include 5 surf lessons à 2 hours and also a theory surf lesson to teach you water safety and surf etiquette.
What sets us and our surf camp’s location on Sri Lanka apart from other surf camps is our proximity to a variety of beaches and surf spots: Our local surf spot, « Kabalana », is just a walk away from our surf camp and some of Sri Lanka’s best point, reef and beach breaks we get to within only 15 minutes in the car. This makes our surf camp and your surfing holidays a paradise for all surfing abilities!
Yoga has conquered the surfing world in recent years. Today, most professional surfers practise Yoga to improve flexibility, strengthen core muscles and enhance their balance and overall surfing ability. Our surf camp on Sri Lanka has its very own Yoga shala where we teach both Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga.
All our Yoga sessions are taught by our professional and enthusiastic Yoga instructors who make their sessions accessible to both beginner and advanced ‘Yogis’. Our Yogi package includes 5 Yoga sessions during your surf holiday week with us. We also offer workshops on the history and theory of Yoga, and additional Yoga sessions can be added during your booking or during your stay at the surf camp.
There’s nothing more important than a healthy & delicious meal after a long day surfing Sri Lanka’s amazing waves! All our week-long surf holiday packages include 7 breakfasts and 5 dinners. For breakfast, we provide you with a lovely buffet that include fresh juices and fruit, a variety of breads and spreads and other local treats.
Our dinners are very much the social highlight of our surf camp day when we all come together to talk surfing story and taste both local and Western cuisine. Among our evening meals are authentic Sri Lankan dishes as well as a night of pizza, pasta and a BBQ around the camp fire. All our meals are home-made, and we use locally sourced products to help sustain local suppliers.
Besides surfing and Yoga, our surf camp on Sri Lanka has many activities in store you for to make your surf holiday in paradise a memorable one! Relax in our swimming pool or in one of many sun loungers, check out our surf library and surf movie collection or challenge your surf mates to a game of pool.
And that’s not all! Join one of our surf camp language, art or Yoga workshops during your surf week with us or come along to a great day trip snorkeling along the island’s colorful reefs, discovering Sri Lanka’s world-famous wildlife in a safari park or exploring ancient temples and authentic markets in one of the local towns nearby! There’s lots to do and see, and we encourage all our surf holiday guests to immerse themselves in this beautiful culture and its lifestyle.
Travelling in a foreign country can be quite the adventure in itself. This holds true, in particular, for an island like Sri Lanka where typical Western rules and modes of transportation don’t quite apply. But as many of our surf holiday guests make their surf camp stay only one of many stops on longer surf travel trips, we’ve decided to include one airport transfer in all our surf packages, either from Colombo International Airport to our surf camp or from the surf camp to Colombo Airport.
When booking your surf holidays, simply let us know your flight dates and times, so a member of our surf camp crew can meet you at or take you to the airport.
Our surf camp is located in Ahangama, close to Sri Lanka’s southernmost tip, and about 133km from Colombo International Airport.
Travelling from Colombo, busses, trains and tuk tuks – or a combination of the three – will get you to our surf camp in about 4h – 4.5h for everything between 5€ – 35€. Taxis take about 1.45h – 2h and are about 70€.
If you’re travelling from Colombo, we highly recommend booking one of our airport shuttles as this is by far the easiest way to the surf camp. We offer our surf camp shuttle service for 50€ per car.
Yes, you need a visa for your surf holiday in Sri Lanka. For EU members, this is issued upon arrival and costs US $35. To book in advance and for more information, visit: www.eta.gov.lk.
Good questions! You are covered under our insurance when surfing with us during our surf lessons. For all your time free surfing, you need your own surf travel insurance should you, for example, damage somebody else’s surf equipment.
We’ve got great swells all year round on Sri Lanka’s South coast. The best months for a surf holiday in terms of weather are October through April when our days are filled with sunshine and the surf is generally offshore! May through September are still warm, but get the occasional rain showers that bring rougher conditions with them.
Our surf camp in Sri Lanka is open between June and April.
Of course, you can bring your own surf gear! We have plenty of space in our surf camp to store it during your surf holidays. Simply let us know before your arrival, so we can arrange for a bis enough car for your airport transfer.
