You don't need to look further. I've had beginner lesson before but Fawas is way more profesional and a good instructor. I learnt more things and my friend who's a first time managed to stand on the board on his first try! Price is a little higher but you won't regret it.

First of all Fawas is really good and licensed professional instructor. I had no experience at all when I first arrived but after first lesson I was able to stand on the board and after few lessons I was able to ride a wave. Fawas is also really nice guy and showed us a lot of places near arugam bay, where we could see wild life, find restaurants. This guy really cares of your experience and wants you to enjoy Sri Lanka and will give good advice how to do so.

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)
