The southern coast of Sri Lanka, a Beginner's Paradise is one of the best places in the world to learn how to surf. This is why Good Story Surf School is located here on the shores of the warm Indian ocean, amongst some of the most popular surf destinations....
All our instructors are certified by the International Surfing Association and trained in Surf Rescue, and follow the learning process and updates established by the ISA. Lessons are held in three languages: English, Russian and Sinhalese. Surfing school in Sri Lanka is open all year round for both private and group classes.
You can start surfing at any age and with any body composition. We accept students starting from 6 years old! It is a great opportunity for children to spend time being active and outdoors. As for adults it is a great way to diversify their lifestyle, improve health and increase stress resistance. We recommend preparing in advance before the lessons begin. Balance and stretching exercises, swimming pool, yoga, breathing practices will help you get a better physical shape faster.
Surfing is not only a sport, but also a philosophy, overcoming fears, managing emotions and the ability to adapt to the forces of the nature that are beyond our control, the ability to use them in our own interests. Surfing helps you to choose the right moment, to catch the right wave and to enjoy life. See you in the lineup!
In 2013 I took my first wave in Hossegor, the south of France. Sri Lanka is a beautiful paradise with a perfect setup to begin your own growth in surfing. Come to surf with an open heart and it will teach you. It will teach you to get back up if you fall, to believe in yourself, to read and understand the ocean. Become aware of how it’s all flowing with energy and nature and that we can join that movement for a moment in time and ride with the magic of a wave.
I tried surfing for the first time in my life in March, 2017 in Morocco, not far from Agadir. I was so impressed and inspired. I had chance to surf on Bali, in Portugal, in the gulf not far from Saint Petersburg and even in the rapids in the city park in Munich. But I can say that Sri Lanka is one of the best places to try surfing for the first time, at any time of the year. I am very devoted to this process: surfing became a generator of happiness for me.
I’m that very happy person with a big smile who will lead you to the world of surfing! I will help you to catch your first waves and make a powerful cutback, you will learn how to understand the ocean’s mood and how to stay safe. I have been doing surfing for 10 years and I’ve been teaching it for 7 years. I prefer to teach new things as something very easy and clear … even for children. I invite everyone to Sri Lanka, as there are the best conditions to study surfing
I've been doing surfing for 5 years. First time I tried it in Russia at the Baltic sea. I think that surfing is a sport discipline and every time I train to my maximum, setting and achieving my goals. I don’t like to be attached to the board, I prefer universal surfing at any board- short or long. Sri Lanka gives an opportunity for constant training and chance to feel the ocean. It is better to try surfing with the certified instructor in an appropriate place in the ocean
