Are you planning a surfing trip to Sri Lanka? Let us tell you that Sri Lanka is not only a number 1 kitesurfing destination, but it is also a top-rated surfing paradise. Kalpitiya is the place to kite in Sri Lanka, but it is not the best spot to surf in the island.
If you really want to surf among the best waves on the island, better you head South. You will find countless surfing spots down in the south where you can catch the biggest tubes. Yet, if you are a bloody beginner, here you have our recommended surfing school for your first steps into surfing.
Freedom Surf School, Weligama was 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 and they realised that it was possible to surf and somehow got hold of a surf board. From then on surfing became a craze in Sri Lanka.
Local entrepreneurs like Ruwan hacked down the trees to make a gateway to the ocean, and Weligama Bay surf schools were born. Freedom Surf School sat alongside 4 other Sri Lankan surf schools in Weligama Bay and has blossomed ever since.
