Participate professional surf classes to reach a new level.
It is our great passion to teach surfing professionally but also in a relaxed manner and with a lot of fun. Our specifically designed Surf Spirit Coaching concept aims to work as efficiently as possible on your individual level and skills, whether you are an absolute beginner or an advanced surfer. In our surf lessons we impart basic knowledge about the ocean and all fundamental aspects of surfing. The surfing techniques are explained and shown in detail in theory. Your coach will support you in the water to implement the new tips optimally. We attach great importance to supporting you with individual, analytical feedback in the best possible way. Our surf coaching concept considers your level. We divide the coaching into the following surf levels:
Check your exact level under “My Level”. Under "Coaching" you will find more information on how we will deal with your level. Based on this, we deal with the following topics, among others: Ocean knowledge, ocean safety, surf etiquette, understanding of the waves, types of surfboards, pop-up technique, pop-up timing, perfect paddle technique, surfing front- and backside, positioning in the water, behaviour in the line up, generating speed, buttom turn, top turn, cutback and much more. In addition to surf coaching, we also offer surf "Guiding" or a "Free Surf & Yoga Package" in some locations.

WHAT IS MY SURF LEVEL:
Surf Level 1: Beginner
I don’t have any surf experience at all. I would love to learn all the surf basics to safely surf around the world in the future. I am happy to learn the right techniques to be able to improve as fast as possible.
Surf Level 2: Experienced Beginner
I have surfed a few times. Getting up works quite well. I would like to intensify my pop up technique and all basic surfing techniques. I am ready to surf “unbroken” waves and intensify first maneuvers. Reading waves and pop-up timing can also be improved.
Surf Level 3: Intermediate
I surf regularly. I am confident in basic surfing techniques. I can recognise the peak of a wave, realise which direction the wave breaks and i am able to safely surf off the wave. I would like to improve my maneuvers (buttom turn, top turn, cutback etc.) and work on following the ideal line on the wave. I am happy about improving my individual technique. I also feel comfortable in a line up between other surfers. If the waves are not too big, I can surf over a reef also.
Surf Level 4: Advanced
I am a an experienced surfer. I am able to surf in a line up with experienced surfers. I am save and surf all surf spots (reef, points, beach break) in almost all sizes. My maneuvers are pronounced and save.
"We take our job seriously to give you the best possible surfing experience and development."
We have developed profound coaching concepts for all surf levels. We only work with professional, internationally qualified & experienced surf coaches to make the best out of you lessons.
If you are a Beginner we will make sure, that you enjoy save, fun and professional surf lessons. After your week with us, you will have developed a secure stand up technique on the board, a controlled ride on the wave and you will be able to ride your first manoeuvres. In addition to these skills, you will be able to recognise good spots to surf securely on your own.
As an experienced beginner we also make sure to teach you all fundaments of surfing. We work on wave reading, the wave count in general, a proper paddle technique, pop up technique and timing, surf front and backside and starting the first manoeuvres.
All Surf Spirit Coaches are well trained and experienced to provide analytical feedback to get your surfing to the next level.
If you are an intermediate surfer, our coaches will check your specific level first. We usually focus on reading waves, select the best waves, surfing the right line, improve manoeuvres (buttom turn, top turn, cutback), improve the pop up timing. As the levels may vary all our coaches are able to provide analytical feedback to get you on the next level.
As an advanced surfer there is some options for you. You can always join the intermediate group to receive individual feedback and work on your technique. In addition to that you can always join the Guiding or just book a "Free Surf" package if you just want to surf on your own.
Surf Coaching is available in the Jungle Villa Sri Lanka, in the Beach Lodge Sri Lanka (recommended for Level 1 & 2) & in the Villa Andalusia.
Our Surf guide will take you on a little surf trip to find the best waves of the day. Our highly experienced guides are happy to share their local knowledge. After a short introduction of the spot, just jump into the water and enjoy the surf session. This is not a surf lesson but more a free surf with the guide. This is why the guiding is for intermediate and advanced surfers only. Our Guides love to take you on this little surf trip.
Guiding is available in the Jungle Villa Sri Lanka and on the Surf Spirit Island in Indonesia.
Free Surf & Yoga Package
This package is only available in the Beach Lodge Sri Lanka. The Free Surf Package does not include any surf lessons or guiding. Feel free to use our equipment and go surfing on your own. We recommend this package if you basically don't want to surf at all or you are on a really high surf level that you are not interested in the lessons or guiding. If you basically just want to do your own thing, this might be your choice.
Other than that we always recommend to choose one of the surf packages to make the most out of your surf sessions and your stay.
The Free Surf & Yoga package is only available at the Beach Lodge Sri Lanka.
