Our Story

Freedom Surf School, established in 2012 by Ruwan Sanjeewa. Before this, Weligama Bay was an over grown jungle. A few locals began experimenting with planks of wood in the ocean. They realised that it was possible to surf and somehow got hold of a surf board, from then on surfing became a craze.  

Local entrepreneurs like Ruwan hacked down the trees to make a gateway to the ocean. Weligama Bay surf schools were born. Baby Freedom sat along with 4 others in the Bay and has blossomed ever since. 

Freedom is now the largest surf school in Weligama Bay. With the largest selection of well maintained surfboards for all abilities and ages. The comfiest sun beds and beanbags. The friendliest and most professional staff - we are all proud to be part of the growing Freedom family.


An affordable alternative to a structured surf camp.

Surf, sleep, and explore, with private surf lessons we guarantee the best value for money.
