Sri Lanken Paradise, Awesome Surf Camp! Stayed here for 3 weeks and had an amazing time! Located in Weligama, South West Sri Lanka and they have a perfect beginner beach break in front of the camp. Generally quiet area given Weligama point which is 5 minutes walk up the beach can be busy. We took tuk tuks to the breaks further up the coast just 5-10 minutes away to get to some of the reef breaks as I progressed (great surf breaks for intermediate and advanced surfers!). 

Runar
Perfect spot for for beginners and intermediate! professional staff and sporty atmosphere :))

Andreas
Perfect place for surfing and just having a good time! Both me and my girlfriend had great a surfing experience, even though we are on very different levels. Sri Lanka is a great land as well, very beautifull! two thumbs up.
