A number of other surf breaks in the area are easily and cheaply accessible by Tuk Tuk, which we at the camp re happy to help organise and point you in the right direction.

Travelled with friends

How did you like the accommodation?


We stayed at Stoked Surf and Health Camp for a week in the beginning of February. We felt welcomed straight away. The atmosphere is very relaxed and chill and we were able to do be a part of all the activities but also explore these parts of Sri Lanka on our own. The food is made by a local lady called Gawri and she cooked the most amazing food. The best we've had during our stay in Sri Lanka.

How did you like the surf lessons?


Jack is an amazing surf instructor with a lot of patience and we learned so much during the lessons. We really recommend this place if you want to improve your surf skills, get into yoga, be active or just relax. This place has something for everyone!


Travelled solo

How did you like the accommodation?


I originally booked in for a week long surf and yoga package and ended up staying for three. The camp’s location is ideal- in the quieter area of the south coast while still being close to the popular spots. The cook gauri was fantastic - she made us the best local fresh cuisine every morning and lunch. Tess, the dog, put a smile on my face every morning. I’d thoroughly recommend Stoked to anyone who is looking for a peaceful yet adventure packed week or more. I will be back soon

How did you like the surf lessons?


Jack was a great instructor and took us to some cool spots - he has the patience of a saint. He went out of his way to ensure we had the best possible stay
