USURF camp is located in the real surfing heaven, on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, close to Weligama in a place called Ahangama.
Warm water, tender and soft waves, constantly coming from the powerful and majestic Indian ocean - these are the indispensable attributes of deserted and picturesque beaches of Ahangama. Nothing will come in between you and the beauty of the ocean, its temper and nature. Nothing will keep you from learning the behavior of the waves, from relaxing and enjoying the view of the unique Sri Lankan nature.
The waves at the south coast are equally good for the beginners and the professional surfers. Our instructors have been awarded at various international contests; all of them have International Surfing Association (ISA) certificates. Every day they choose the best time and place for practice. Every training consists of a theory lesson ashore, practice in the water, and photo/video analysis after the session. The training course is organized in such a way as to make maximum progress and enjoy the learning process at the same time.
The main advantages of Ahangama are its beautiful nature and minimal, if compared with nearest towns, amount of tourists. A rave of tropical plants, unbelievable diversity of colors, and a perfect dream of landscapes with azure sky and the great depth of the ocean in the background, - all of it will certainly touch your feelings. A variety of local exotic fruit and exotic teas, which you will surely want to try, will add a juicy flavor to your adventure.
A cozy villa, located within a walking distance from the beach is always at your disposal. There is literally everything one could ever need: lobby, terrace, kitchen, washing machine, hot water, TV-set, powerful speakers, and Wi-Fi. You can choose between double accommodation rooms and rooms with bigger number of beds. Every room is equipped with an AC and hot water bathroom.
There’s always a chance to practice your plasticity and balance: at the villa there’s free access to balance boards, slacklines and yoga mats. You could also rent a cycle, a bike, or just call for a tuk-tuk to go sightseeing.
Our team will make your stay at the camp as unforgettable as possible. We will not only practice surfing, but also give you a chance to discover the most amazing places on the island. You’ll see sea turtles, visit the old Dutch fortress, lighthouses, tea plantations and learn everything about tea, get to know the mystical science of Ayurveda, go boating through beautiful lakes, discover some desert islands, and party in the most badass bars right at the sea shore. All the best places on the island – for us!
Camp USURF is the best place for those who are looking for new feelings and emotions, those who strive for adventures and would like to get an energy boost together with the surf-crown of the island, those who have already tried surfing or are still dreaming about it. Here you’ll meet passionate people full of energy, get a new understanding of the ocean at the edge of the world and certainly learn something new about yourself.
We are full of energy, and in love with surfing and the ocean.
Once upon a time we just understood that it was a high time to do something special, so we quit our jobs in metropolitan cities and created this surf-camp - USURF – an ideal place for learning surfing and progressing in it, for meeting surf-people and finding adventures in the wonderful world of Sri Lanka.
Surfing changed our lives. And we are certain that it will change yours! If you dream to learn how to ride the wave and you’re willing to learn something new about yourself, you can make it come true together with us, same daring dreamers as you.
Sri Lanka is a unique world that managed to gather such a variety of cultures, landscapes and climatic zones on the small piece of land that you could hardly find in some countries that are ten times as big.
(Sir Arthur Charles Clarke)
Sri Lanka is an island country that looks like a teardrop falling from the edge of India on the map. It has always been attracting travellers from all over the world. Famous Italian mariner Marco Polo described it as the most beautiful island in the whole wide world. Numerous merchants and adventurers that were lucky to visit Sri Lanka at least once, kept the memories of sweet spices, exotic fruits, wondrous jewels, and majestic elephants forever.
Sri Lanka is called “the pearl of the Indian Ocean” for a reason. Here, you, as the ancient islanders, will meet the ocean face to face, for the story of surfing is the story of the ocean. It was about IV century B.C. when ancient Polynesians, the inventors of surfing, explored the Pacific, using the boards. Only the bravest and the most skilled made it to Hawaiian Island, the historical center of the world’s surfing. Hawaiians charmed the wave and mastered the board more than a thousand years ago. Moreover, ingenuous surfing skills were obligatory for a Hawaiian monarch, who wanted to strengthen his position on the throne.
Favorable location of the island makes surfing possible in different parts of the island during almost the whole year. Strong storms do not happen here, and forceful swells are uncommon, that’s why the number of lessons cancelled because of the high waves will likely be close to zero. Soft waves along the South coast are perfect both for beginners and the experienced surfers. Here you’ll find both the reef spots and the safe sand-bed ones. Warm water and the unspeakable beauty of deserted Sri Lankan beaches will provide you with a very special feeling of comfort. There is a good reason why our team chose Sri Lanka as a place for the surf camp, and Arthur Clarke definitely knew what he was talking about. Splendid greenery, unique wildlife, hospitality and cordiality of locals will touch the feelings of even those who came here only for waves.
Thanks to the team for such a positive energy; you just fall in love with surfing even more together with them! Thank you for the joyful company, chance to practice on the balance board, for the cool pictures, and just for the amazing time))! Besides professional training, they give you the chance to live at a cool villa, to come and get a thrill out of it together!
Best people in super surf camp! Thank you all for there almost 3 weeks of everyday surfing and unforgettable madness! You are new and awaited friends in my life! lets have fun times together soon and in St-Pete & Tenerife then!
Dear friends, I think now I already have the right to call you friends. You’re very cool. I am so glad I met you. I spent unforgettable time with you that I will keep in my heart forever. Thank you for your kindness and sympathy, hospitality and surfing lessons. You are just perfect. And of course – fair winds to you, you’re doing a great job! Thank you. And a special gratitude goes to my trainer Dania. Thank you for teaching me so fast. The only thing I regret is that I spent with you so little time. Only a month.
USURF is the best, simply put. I met these guys by chance one day in town and I'm so happy I did, as I came out not only with a love for surfing but also with many new close friends. I had never surfed before, so I was a little nervous to try it. However, the environment at USURF was relaxed and supportive, and everyone, regardless of skill level, was eager to learn from one another. My instructor Max was awesome- he walked me through the basics of surfing, patiently helped me stand up on my first waves, and really got me thirsting to get back in the water. Aside from surfing, just hanging out at the camp was a blast. Everyone was so friendly and inviting, and it felt like I had known these guys for years even though it had only been a few days. The accommodation in Sri Lanka was perfect- the food, the rooms, the jungle setting- it's hard for me to imagine a better place to learn to surf. My only regret is not spending more time there!
Didn't plan my trip so it happened quite accidentally. At the end it turned out to be one of the best holidays in my life. Family-like atmosphere, great people around, wonderful team and extremely professional surfing trainers - had really great experience surfing there and lots of fun!!! Will highly recommend this camp to everyone!!! Want to get back ASAP!!!
