We went to take one lesson with dulip and ended up staying our whole three days with him! Amazing guy who wants to show you the wonders of his country and is amazing surf teacher! He took us to all the best places to surf and really teaches you how to understand the waves ! Such an honest and authentically guy! Thanks so much for making our stay in Arugam bay the best!

Dulip was outstanding from start to finish!! He made surfing so easy and most importantly so enjoyable. Me & my wife arrived haven never surfed before, his quick & easy instructions before was so good we both stood and rode the first wave all the way to beach! Highly recommend these guys for your visit to Sri Lanka!

Also... he let me drive his tuk tuk which was a bucket list! Guy is a legend!!

Lesitha organized great safari for us! We saw lots of animals very close to our Jeep: elephants, deers, crocodiles etc. Lesitha knows which time is better to see this or that kind of animals. Even when it got dark he tried to show as much as possible with a flashlight. We really got lots of impressions! Good job!

We had a great experience with these guys from beginning to end. We had dinner, we watched a movie and we talked with people in the street and everyone recommended these guys! We wanted a safe surfing experience for our kids and that’s exactly what we got! Lesitah and his family provided an approachable, great and safe experience for all. He was great with our kids and provided great feedback the whole time. We had heard of dodgy dealers but that was not these guys! Lesitah knows his stuff, don’t risk your kids with anyone cheaper or less experienced.

We both had our first surf lesson at excellent surf school and we were very happy about way we were introduced into surfing. Good explanation of the basics and safety before we went into the water. In the water the fun started and after every go we got clear feedback on what we could improve and/or why we failed. This was done in a nice way and helped us to improve very quickly.

As we had a good feeling with this small family business we also informed regarding a safari. Due to pelgrims in the park they warned us that wildlife was hiding and that our changes to see much wildlife inside the park was limited. They offered us to take us on an outside (the park) safari including a visit to some beautiful view points and an amazing location to see the sunset from. We were lucky to spot so many animals but i’m sure it also had to do with the passion of our guide and driver for the wildlife. He also told us a lot about the culture and history of Sri Lanka which altogether made this a day we’ll always remember.
