They are very efficient via emails. I had a great instructor, Praneeth, for my beginner's lessons. He was very experienced and guided me through all the steps. Also gave me a lot of confidence and was very patient with me. I had a great experience and I'm definetely going to continue learning to surf and thanks to Dylan's and my instructer for giving that hope.

Communication with Dylan's surf company before we arrived was clear and organised, and they responded to any queries I had quickly and were really helpful. When we arrived we had 3 lessons with Chu Chu, who has got to be the best surf instructor I have met. He is clearly very knowledgeable and experienced and this is reflected in his teaching style. He was very encouraging and offered teaching points throughout each lesson to improve technique, by the end of the three days I felt confident that my surfing had improved a great deal. Not only was he a supportive instructor but he was also fun and welcoming and we always ended each lesson with a king coconut or a cup of tea and some Sri Lankan snacks. It was a fantastic experience that I didn't want to come to an end. I would highly recommend Dylan's Surf Company if your looking for surf lessons while you're in Arugam Bay.

This surf school offered very professional and nice service from the beginning. Our teacher Janith Jacco (he was recommended to us by one random person in Facebook) was funny, positive person and great teacher all in all! He really made us truly excited about surfing, and did not get frustrated even though we repeated same mistakes again and again :D He has very professional mindset and he gave us constantly feedback, which was good. We also felt safe with him, all the relevant safety stuff was gone through.

Today I went with a friend and Anton to Panama Beach in the afternoon. Although the waves were not super according to Anton we had a great afternoon. Very much enjoyed the lesson and good instructions from Anton and due to that it went well.
