More than just a Surf camp.
Talalla Surf Camp is a specialist surf coaching provider, offering professional surf lessons and luxury surf and yoga retreats for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers, from our boutique resort on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. We're not your typical surf camp, in fact we're working hard challenging the common stereotypes many people associate with surf schools and learning to surf. Our new school approach is all about thinking differently, We've replaced the traditional ambiguous approach with an unique "geekiness", and focus on clear and engaging explanations, fun, safe surf sessions and analytical feedback, as well as video coaching and useful surf theory classes to help create the ultimate learn to surf environment for even the most accomplished surfers. With our structured approach, we make learning to surf downright simple and a whole lot more productive. An impressive collection of Tripadvisor reviews, youtube videos and features in Cooler, Here and there, Smorgasboarder and Outside magazine, just goes to show our comprehensive approach to structured surf coaching isn't going unnoticed. With our unique concept on coaching perfectly complimented by our luxury accommodation, yoga and fresh food, we're fast becoming one of the worlds leading surf coaching resorts.
