SOUL SURF BEACH BASECAMP

 

You always deeply desire to be up before the sun, zinced up, waxed up, psyched up. You jog straight on the beach to waky your muscles, peer through the gloom and see some damn good local guys already out and riding wave perfectly. Before you drop to your knees and curse Huey, remind yourself that the day is young and instruction and tuition transmitted to you with Internationally Accredited Surf Coaches for you to get the best of their experience and knowledge to go experience wave riding on some of the best surf spots which are out of town, often just fifteen minutes of terrifying tuk-tuk away. Remember Surfing World’s Sri Lanka feature last year? If it all comes together, you may just score your own little Kirra-comparison to yourself!

OVERVIEW


The property Set in 3.5 acres of open plan beach surrounds, it is a seriously chilled place to be. With no noise or light pollution at the camp, the only sounds you will hear are the waves crashing against the beach and the laughter of our guests as they unwind after a day at sea. Set only 5 min drive away from Arugambay where shops, restaurants, beach bars, ayuverdic centre, and a supermarket will be fully available. Accommodation Wooden cabanas (1-3 pax) Eight beach cabanas frame the camp are equipped with your own bathroom, five with open-air bathrooms so you can shower in the fresh air, and all have a western style toilet, hot shower and basin, double bed, netting and fan. There's a hammock outside so you can relax after a surf. Large dorm where 7 surfers can sleeps in and equipped with fans to keep you cool. The dorm has a shared bathroom. Alternatively, stay in the Folly: open air sleeping by the sea. Cuisine We serve simple and well garnished breakfast, lunch and dinner at the camp as well as a range of snacks to feed your hungry post surf bellies. Fill up on porridge, eggs, fruit or traditional curries and rice, all made with locally sourced ingredients and prepared freshly by our local chef. Special, non-spicy, dishes can be prepared for children. Similarly, we can prepare simple meals accordingly for people with special diet requirements or allergies. Facilities & Services You'll find a large community area in the middle to chill after your surf is full of places for you to relax; use it to read, play games, snooze after surf, and chat. Plus, make the most of the chillout zones that you'll find dotted around the camp, and comfy sunbeds that are down by the beach for you to top-up your tan. Guides Our surf instructors crew is made up of locals as their knowledge of the area, ocean, currents, and tides is some of the best out there. They will have you paddling, standing on your board, and catching and riding waves in no time– all with a big smile on your face.

Day 3-4 (B-L-D) Our timetable can vary due to local tides and weather conditions, but we
tend to head out at 5am everyday. Meet to grab a banana and a coffee, then we all jump into the tuk tuks and head to the beach. After your morning surf, we have breakfast and yoga then you have until your afternoon theory
session to chill. We head back to the beach at around 2.30pm, have 90 minutes in the water and then head back to camp. You can have your dinner. Day 5 (B-L-D) It’s usually on day five that you wake up in the morning feeling like you can’t
get out of bed, and we know the pain! So day five is a rest day. You can sleep in and spend the day swinging in your hammock, explore the town, relax on the beach, hire a scooter and drive to the jungle or take advantage of our local wildlife, beauty and culture with a drive to Kumana National Park
to spot elephants, water buffalo, alligators and hundreds of beautiful birds. “Let us know in advance we will be able to arrange it for you”. Day 6 (B-L-D) After a day off you’ll be feeling refreshed and ready to hit the waves again
and we’re back to our 5am surf. Although it can be a little tough pulling yourself out of bed everyone is always glad they did it and nothing beats
jumping in the sea for a dawn surf, especially when the sea is empty and the
surf is at it’s best. After a big breakfast, there’s yoga and then free time before the afternoon session. Much like the other days we head back to the beach around 2.30pm for a surf and then it’s back to the camp around 5pm.
You can have a cold beer then dinner. Day 7 (B-L-D) The last day have both surf and theory sessions, yoga and afternoon chilling
