SURF LESSONS IN ARUGAM BAY

Yellow separation line

Group lesson at the beach of Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay is one of the best destinations in the world to learn surfing. Beginners can learn to surf their first waves in green water instead of the white water (don’t worry, we’ll teach you all about it, but trust us, you’ll like it!). Our favorite part of surfing is the warm waters of Arugam Bay, the relaxed community, and getting to surf right alongside the local culture. You may see local fishermen waking up to get the catch of the day, local families enjoying time together at the beach, or if you’re at Peanut Farm or Elephant Rock, you may be lucky and see wild elephants too. While most of our students are beginners, we have a lot of experience and can help intermediate students improve their surf skill set.

  • All lessons are led by ISA certified instructors
  • Lessons can be scheduled any time between 5:00 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Beginner and intermediate lessons are 90 minutes
  • Surfboard and tuk tuk hire are included in the price of the lesson
  • Use of rash guard is included

SurfBOARD & EQUIPMENT RENTAL

Family surf lesson for kids and adults

Our shop is equipped for you! We keep the shop stocked with shortboards, longboards, single fins, twin fins, and of course a variety of soft boards and longer hard boards available to rent. Boards meet beginner to advanced surfer standards and can be rented for a half-day, full-day, or long-term. Prices start as low as $4 USD/half-day and are dependent on which board you are renting. All rentals are inspected by both staff and customers before you head out for your surf. We’ll both check for dings, number of fins, fin security, and leash condition, so you’re free from liability for prior damage. Fresh wax will be applied before each surf. Surf on, my friends.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

”What a great experience. My boyfriend and I just had a few amazing days learning how to surf at the surf camp. It has been a lot of fun, our instructor Ibu spoke perfect English, he was calm with us struggling in the beginning, but motivated us that much, that we even bought boards at the end. We always got good equipment, could try different boards and he always was on time and transport and everything that belonged to our surfing adventure has been well planned. We highly recommend to come to Ibu and his team at Banana Surf Camp! Best if you join their whole week of camp!”
”A very organized, punctual and reliable surf instructors in the banana surf school. The equipment was always in perfect shape, prepared every day and especially the variety of surfboards is massive. So you will definitely find exactly what you are looking for. The lessons were especially helpful for my daughter, who ust learned surfing. So even for kids I can highly recommend Ibu with his team. There the kids are in good hands and learn quickly how fun it is to surf!”
”It’s the best feeling when I followed you surf coaching advice and things immediately start to work out right. I was able to catch the waves. I quickly became an intermediate surfer instead of still being a beginner. I understand my mistakes now on the board and see the right way to progress. All the different surf spots of Arugam Bay helped me to learn how to read the waves. Plus Banana Surf Camp is a great team. I enjoyed not just the hours in the water with you but also the rest of the program at the surf camp. Yoga, movie night, campfire, common dinners with delicious food, relaxing at the beach and socializing at parties. Thank you!”
”Just a note to tell you how much I appreciate your staff at Banana Surf Camp. My instructor for surf lessons in Arugam Bay was patient and instrumental in getting me to the next level of being an intermediate surfer. I am going at this with as much focus and repetition as time and waves permit. It’s a slow process until I will become a professional, but I’ll finally get it! Thank you so much, guys. I will come back to the beautiful east coast of Sri Lanka and your amazing team!”
”I have joined your surf camp and can only tell how fun during the day with other campers and your team and successful in surfing it has been. The surf lessons including the theory were very helpful to become from beginner to intermediate level of surfing at the end of the week. But also the Yoga lessons, the delicious food, the company of other campers during the day and relaxing at the beach made the stay in Arugam Bay unforgettable. I will come back!”
