what people say
"I went with a school group. Freedom surf not only provided super fun and engaging lessons/guided surf for many different levels, but coordinated other events for us. Their instructors were funny, kind, and great at teaching. Had a blast! Would definitely recommend."
"You can tell that these guys really care that you'll learn to surf properly, and they take their job very seriously.
If you're looking for a place where you could get the proper tools and really learn how to surf by yourself in the end, this is the place for you. "
"A stay in the freedom villa, will be a pleasure for everyone. We had a great time there, and the owners are even better.
When you have been there once, you will definitely plan to go back."
We are proud to be approved by Good Market Lanka in recognition of our efforts to run our business as sustainably and responsibly as possible.
This year we received a certificate of excellence based on our consistently great reviews.
Our instructors are certified by ISA (International Surfing Association). The ISA is the global governing body for surfing meaning that the standard we teach at is held to a global standard.
