SURF SCHOOL - ARUGAM BAY

Surf lesson in Arugam Bay

Learn to Surf!

Dylan’s Surf School in Arugam Bay is the only Billabong supported surf school in Sri Lanka. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate surfer, the Surf School offers classes from the beginning of April to the end of October, which covers the main surf season on the East coast of Sri Lanka. Beginner classes are also running from November to March, when conditions allow!

All surf lesson prices include a surfboard (soft top for beginners) and a rashguard. All classes and packages are done either individually or in small groups (max. 3 persons per instructor). Private classes are conducted when possible, but are difficult to arrange in the high season (June-September).

Several instructors have been accredited by the ISA (International Surfing Association).

To ensure your place at our surf classes, please book in advance; drop us an email or give us a call. For any open questions, please check our FAQ section here!

Please note that the Surf School is only operating in Arugam Bay!

        TRANSPORT

        Transport costs depend on the distance to the surf spots and can be shared with other students. Also if instructors arrive in separate tuktuks (e.g. in group lessons), their transport costs will be part of the total costs. Usually transport is organized in tuktuks (three wheelers). For bigger groups it's also possible to arrange a jeep.

        In case you are staying outside of Arugam Bay and would like us to pick you up from your accommodation, please be aware that it may increase the transportation costs. Also, in the case that you are staying by a surf beach and your lesson will be held at that beach, the transport costs of the boards and instructors will still apply.

        The instructors always choose the best location based on conditions and crowds.

        Please note that below mentioned tuktuk prices are only valid for surf lessons from Arugam Bay.
