It also has a big garden with a swimming pool where you can jump in and refresh after a long surf session.

A holistic experience, at the Surf Lodge you’ll feel wholesome, grounded, nourished and energized. Yoga is in session every morning at the lodge, giving you the opportunity to stretch and strengthen your body, mind and soul outside the water, too. As ocean lovers and experienced surfers, we embrace the yogic lifestyle – it enhances surfing skills in the most remarkable way.

Surf lessons, guiding & equipment is all available on site.

Location

We are surfing obsessed, and we invite you to join us and experience a perfect blend of wild tropical views and great surfing for all levels. Next set is yours!

Reconnect with Planet Earth. You’ll find us nestled in the lush green jungle, just a few steps from the ocean. Sri Lanka is home to one of the world’s richest wildlife ecosystems with a picturesque jungle backdrop to get lost in. It’s magical, and it’s yours.
It’s never too late to learn. No matter your level, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of being out in the open sea. It’s quiet out there, and everything changes when your board touches the water. Pick your package and let’s go surfing.

When you’re not paddling out, there’s lots to do in and around Kabalana. The charming beach town acts as one hell of a launching pad for exploring the surrounds! We’re here to let you in on Sri Lanka’s culture, history and natural beauty.

Main Surf Beach: The Rock - Kabalana

Surf Lessons we offer:

Kids Surf Lessons

We offer lessons for kids only if the parents agree and are close by. We will minimize the group size of kids depending on their age.

Beginner Surf Lessons

It’s your first time grabbing a surfboard but you’re ready to make love to the ocean. You don’t need any previous surfing experience to become a Foamie. None at all. We’re here to help you make your first frothy memories – from scratch. Our experienced guides will start by focusing on surf fundamentals – and we’ll combine both theory and water time to get you comfortable in the white water waves.

Intermediate Surf Lessons

You’re already hooked on surfing, can stand up on a board, but still struggle with paddling out to the line-up and catching slick green waves. While in the camp, you will enjoy the perfect combination of practice time and theory to ensure your improvement. We will provide you with tools that will help you to better read the waves, catch more waves & gain more confident while out there!

Advanced Surf Lessons

You’re already carving it up, but you want to improve your skill set. It’s time to make the most of the epic Kabalana conditions and score the best waves around. We’re going to help you push your limits – each surf session will be filmed and analyzed to see how we can turn the beat up. We will be there to provide you with daily tips on how to improve your technique and style.

Private Surf Lessons

We offer private lessons on request.


Kabalana - The Rock

Level: Intermediate

Situated just down the road, Kabalana is a surf spot that can handle a bit of swell. A more popular choice for the short boarder, it’s a chunky A to frame peak that can offer long barrels on either side. It forms off of ‘The Rock’ out the back which appears to break up the swell forming double ups and wedges. Kabalana is famed as one of the best A to frames that Sri Lanka has to offer so can get busy during peak season, but quietens off after. 

Kabalana Beach

Level: Beginner

The Kabalana beach break is great for beginners where you can froth about in the white water and just a few meters away from home.

South Beach

Level: Intermediate

Just north of Kabalana there is an uncrowded beach, deep reef break with slow lefts and rights that hold to 4ft. A good longboard wave. The beach is exposed like Kabalana so can get blown out easily in the afternoon winds.

Ahangama - Sticks

Level: Intermediate

Just south of the Ahangama fishing poles you can find The sticks to point. Peeling classic A to frame holds up to 5ft with up to 350m rides. Intermediate reef break.
