The Destination

Your Sri Lankan surf and yoga escape will be spent nestled in the palm trees, staying at the luxury beachside Surf House in the coastal

town of Ahangama. The Surf House is tucked 50m into the lush jungle, away from the hustle & bustle 

and opposite one of the most consistent waves on the South West Coast. It is located within a 3 mile stretch of coast with both reef and beach breaks, offering variety for all surf abilities. Most surf spots are within walking distance or a short tuk-tuk ride, so its a stones throw back to the Surf House to unwind and relax after your surf.  

All rooms are en-suite and there are shared (up to 3) and private rooms available, with a choice of fan or air con options. Offering comfort and choice to suit solo travellers, couples or friends. 

Spend your daily free time as you choose, relax in the hammocks with a book or in the roof terrace bar, take a stroll on the beach to top up your tan, or explore the surrounding area, fascinating culture and amazing local cuisine.

Sri Lanka is known as 'The Pearl of The Indian Ocean' due to its incredible natural beauty, extraordinary biodiversity and it's precious gemstones. More commonly known for it's tea, a visit to a teahouse is a must to learn the history of Sri Lanka. The list is endless of what you can do and explore in Sri Lanka... 

Surf & Yoga

You'll start the day with a fresh coffee and fruit snack before an energising yoga flow to to wake up the body, focusing on stretching and strengthening core muscles for your surfing. You will be taught by Wild & Free yoga teacher Amanda who will guide you through the sunrise and sunset yoga sessions on the rooftop terrace with it's stunning views. If you're a total beginner yogi then don't worry, Amanda will guide you through the basics to access as many poses as possible whilst working with your own body. By the end of the trip you'll be flowing through your practice with ease.  

After the morning yoga session you'll enjoy a nutritious breakfast, before hitting the waves for a 2hr surf session with the Ticket To Ride Surf Instructors, including ex-Pro Surfer Nikita Robb who surfed on the ASP World Tour! The team know these spots like the back of their hands and will be taking you to the best breaks.  Again, it doesn't matter if you're a total ripper or a beginner, there are waves for all surfers and the instructors will take your surfing to the next level. If it's your first time, you'll leave with the surfing bug for sure...or if you surf regularly you will certainly be enhancing your skills.

You then head back to The Surf House

for some surf analysis and theory in the dedicated video analysis and feedback room to evaluate your session. This gives you the right skills to enable you to further your progression when surfing solo. There is a massive selection of brand new boards for you to trial and get your stoke on!

 

You will then have plenty of free time, when you can adventure and enjoy the local cuisine, explore, relax and reset.

In the afternoon there is the opportunity 

for a guided surf session with the Ticket To Ride team where you can put your learnings into practice!

 

During the evening you'll enjoy a 

restorative yoga session with Amanda, ensuring you reset your mind, body and soul, ready to shred the following day!  

 

You'll end the day with a delicious and authentic Sri Lankan evening meal prepared by the team of local chefs.

Food & Drink

Breakfast and evening meals are served in the social dining area where you can share your adventures with your fellow guests.

We provide a delicious and authentic menu ensuring a balanced and energy focused diet prepared by the team of local chefs. Ranging from traditional Kottu, grilled fish and curry to name a few.

Meals are supplemented with tea, coffee, fresh fruit and energy boosting snacks at various times of the day. An in house team of butlers are also available throughout the day to take your orders for nibbles and drinks.

During the evening you can also enjoy a well deserved post surf beer or cocktail in the roof terrace bar whilst enjoying the views! Enjoy the sunset, palm trees, breaking waves, and share your surf stoke stories!

If you want to venture further afield there are plenty of great cafes and eateries just a short walk from the surf house and these cater for all budgets.

Best surf trip I've ever been on. I have achieved what I wanted to by gaining more confidence with my turns in the surf. The surf coaching was really clear and easy to follow as well as fun. Also enjoyed learning new yoga techniques that will definitely help me in the future. Best of all was having fun everyday!
