GOOD STORY SURF SCHOOL

GOOD WAVES. GOOD PEOPLE. GOOD TIME.

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!

REEF RIDER

One of the best places in the world to learn surfing is the south coast of Sri Lanka. This was the reason why we decided to open Good Story Surf School here, in a place called Beginners Paradise, which is just a short drive away from Mirissa, Madiha, Kabalana, Ram's, Plantation, Lazy Left and many other popular surf spots. The variety of waves is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced surfers.
