Great surf school! They matched our lesson to where we were at in ability - we felt safe and were able to improve a lot. Most of all, it was super-fun! Would highly recommend these guys :)

Tried surfing for the first time and thanks to a nice instructor it went easier than expected. During the lesson he was always there with us helping to catch the wave. Price though was higher than we expected to pay (2.500 rupees / person / hour)

Fawas is a great teacher - we studied with him for a week and he is at a completely different level in terms of having a structured approach to learning to surf, including theoretical and practical sessions. He's been working with students from many different nationalities and his English is excellent, which makes communication much easier and is so important for learning the more subtle points of surfing. He is very patient and encouraging for surfing beginners.

He is also very helpful and is a mine of information about both Arugam Bay, where he is based, and also about the rest of Sri Lanka.
