Staying at Surf 'n Lanka was the highlight of our visit to Sri Lanka. It is a surf school run by Manju who is a great surfer and inspirational surf teacher, and his wife who cooks delicious Sri Lankan food – this combination makes it hard to leave their surf house. We were going to stay one night and ended up staying for a week! Their four adorable children were such a joy to be around and added to the enjoyment of staying there. They all taught us so much about the Sri Lankan way of life and the local culture.
There is a great atmosphere in the house, it is authentic and feels more like staying in a family home. The surfboard selection ranges from longboards to minimals and some short boards. It was such an honour to meet Manju, he is such a lovely, genuine person. We nicknamed him 'soul surfer' and 'surf guru' because, his knowledge of surf and the sea is very inspiring, and he really takes his time to explain the techniques and philosophy of surfing. His staff are great fun and have a good sense of humour. We are intermediate surfers, and he gave us a lot of useful tips about the local surf spots and technical advice to improve our surfing.
