From November to May, the best area of the country to be surfing is the southwest coastline, where the surf villa is located. During these months, you will have dry and sunny weather conditions on the south coast.

Water temperatures will be around 25°C-30°C (80°C-90°F), which gives you a great opportunity to surf in Sri Lanka without a wetsuit. The combination of head-high glassy waves, long periods, and offshore winds creates the setting for perfect surf conditions for anyone from beginners to advanced surfers.

The lodge

Our surf house in Ahangama is located just 200m from Kabalana beach, one of the most famous surf spots in Sri Lanka. Kabalana beach is surrounded by a mesmerizing landscape of white sand beaches, clear blue water, and high palm trees.

Hidden in this exotic vegetation lies many restaurants, beach bars, and local surf shops, all with a passion for the surf lifestyle and sharing positive vibes. Immerse yourself in a warm and welcoming atmosphere for a great surf holiday surrounded by great waves and great people.

The surf house has 6 private rooms and 2 shared rooms, with all rooms having a private bathroom and AC. The pool is situated right outside the bottom floor, where all the camp activities will be held. The tables near the pool will host all our delicious surf camp breakfasts and dinners. The surf house being only 2 minutes away from the beach, you will be close to the action and ready to share the stoke.

Surf

We offer high-quality surf lessons for all levels at Kabalana beach. Including group surf lessons for beginners and surf coaching for intermediate and advanced surfers. Kabalana beach offers a wide variety of waves ranging from a beach break for beginners to a reef break for advanced surfers.

Our focus is on providing high-quality surf coaching in Sri Lanka with our certified and highly experienced surf instructors. We run weekly theory surf lessons, which are delivered by our coaches, including presentations and video analysis designed to accelerate your progress during the surf camp week. The more you have fun, the better you will surf at Gota Dagua.

Activities

Apart from our main focus being on delivering the highest quality surf lessons and surf coaching, we want to ensure you experience a wide range of different activities outside surf lessons. During your stay, you will enjoy many fun surf camp activities such as magical sunsets, exploring hidden beaches, safaris, BBQ nights, and much more. It is sure to be a surf holiday like no other.

To keep those muscles ready for the next surf session, we made sure to include daily yoga lessons. The yoga lessons will be given in the yoga shala in our surf villa.

A very famous and beautiful spot to visit in Sri Lanka. Perfect for making good quality pictures, enjoying nature and the beautiful views.

What is more mesmerizing than watching the sunset? Every sunset is different, special, and mind-blowing. Let's enjoy one together!
