Me and my husband never surfed before, so when we came to Arugam Bay, we decided to give it a try. We took a lesson from Excellent surf school and it was perfect! With such the great teachers we felt safe, almost after every wave we had honest feedback, so we really improved. That guys know what they’re doing. We ended up going there every day, so we had 5 lessons. If you looking for a place to learn how to surf - thats a top choice!

We loved our two surf lessons we had here. The teachers were really helpful and encouraging. It was cheap at 2500 rupees for over an hour lesson and they didn’t include the teaching on the beach time for beginners in that time either! You rent a board and a long sleeved top in this price. I really recommend. Also the shop you book a place in is a lovely women’s clothes shop, with homemade dresses, tops and shorts made by the surfer teachers sister, who is also lovely! Lovely family!

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!
