Where are we ?

Looking for a world-class Surf Instructor Course that is officially endorsed by the International Surf Association? Look no further than the Solid Surf Instructor Course, available at our Surf Camp Sri Lanka | Weligama Bay. Our 8 & 12 week program is the only one of its kind worldwide to be endorsed by the ISA president.

Our Surf Camp Sri Lanka is located on the south coast of Sri Lanka and strategically located close to the ocean in the lush green area of Cape Weligama in Weligama Bay.

Weligama is a lively fishing village and the centre of the south where you can explore their culture, streetfood, fishmarkets and even some new bars & beachclub venues along the large bay of Weligama.

Centrally positioned between the south coast surfing hotspots you can easily find your way to all the waves of the area as well as to the cafés, bars and restaurants along the coast: if it is a surf in Madiha or Ahangama, a visit to the famous Doctor’s House in Polhena or just stay around in Weligama. Due to our central location nothing is far.

Most importantly we are located very close to one of the most beautiful surfing beaches the area knows: Jungle Beach and Turtle beach were you can enjoy one of the most magical sunsets.

We are confident that this is your new home away from home in Sri Lanka, a secure, comfy, luxury safe haven.

This 12 weeks programme is also suitable for surfers that look for a true surf-adventure and want to improve their surfing. This can be booked without the ISA and LS exams with a 250,- Euro discount. 

The program is best suited for Intermediate to Advanced surfers – although we also welcome Beginner surfers with little experience that are motivated to advance in surfing.

Our  main Surf House in Weligama is tucked away from the noisy main road but still on the Ocean side.  You will find our newly built Villa in the Cape of Weligama, a safe and well protected area lifted above ocean level. The Villa is very near the beach but yet still surrounded by a jungle green fauna where you are able to spot exotic animals like mongooses, lizards, peacock, kameleons and you can even see our monkey family swinging from tree to tree. 

The villa has 11 high standard comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms, hot well working showers and A/C. We offer a large pool of 11 x 5 meters, a large yoga area of 70m2, outdoor Cinema, board storage, garden and a luxury open kitchen where you can see our inhouse chefs prepare daily the tasty dinners.

Discover, explore, relax, surf and eat is what we do in Sri Lanka!

Our in-house chefs prepare daily freshly made breakfast and dinner! It`s like a cooking show in our luxury open kitchen. Fresh, clean and you can see how they work and prepare our food. Do you have some special requests ? No problem we can fix it all, any type of allergy we will find a solution for you.

The breakfast & dinners we serve is a blend of the unique Sri Lanka cuisine and European inspired food based on locally sourced products. It is full and rich of flavor. Everyday we serve a regular option and a vegetarian option at our dinner also gluten & lactose free options are available on demand.

We pride ourselves with the great chefs we have and raving good reviews about our food by our guests.

Solid Surf House is the original and only operator of the  8 & 12 week ISA surf course in Sri Lanka. The Solid Surf Instructor Course  ISA & LS  – Surf Instuctor Level 1 and Level 2  is the only 12 week programme World Wide that is officially endorsed by the ISA president (International Surf Association). On the ISA website our ISA presenter: Dean Gough, has registered the courses on behalf of Solid Surf House.

During your 8 or 12-week stay, we aim to prepare you for the ISA & ILS Level 1 or 2 course that is linked to the program. We provide tuition manuals, intern hours, and life-saving exercises to give you a head start on the actual course. For 8 and 12-week programs, we also offer Free Dive/Surfival Apnea training. But that’s not all; we also include an multi day trip to Ella where we do hiking, zipline and more.

Our qualified ISA & ILS surf instructors and their assistants will coach you twice a day, regardless of whether you’re an beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer, to help you pass your 5-day ISA & ILS course. The course includes lessons, training, analyzing, and the final examination, and is hosted by our ISA representative, Dean Gough. While the course normally takes place in just two days, we offer a minimum of 5 days for our  ISA program.

The 8 and 12-week programs are also suitable for surfers who want to improve their skills and can be booked without the ISA and ILS exams for a 250,- Euro discount. 

In Sri Lanka we offer only a 8 & 12 weeks course. In these 8 & 12 weeks we get you ready for the Level 1 or 2 ISA & LS – Life Saving – course that is linked to the 8 & 12 week programme.

If you join our Academy on the 15th of March to 7th of June you will be based the first approx 8 weeks in Weligama, located in the South of Sri Lanka. After 8 weeks we will move towards Arugam Bay where the wave season kicks off. The accommodations we provide have great facilities that are hard to match in Sri Lanka. You can enjoy our facilities like swimming pool, yoga shalla, snooker pool table, cinema, bar and more. 

P.S if you start on the 15th of September to 8th of December, Arugam Bay will be the starting point and Weligama Bay the ending point.

What can you expect from us: You will be out surfing and coached twice a day by our qualified ISA & ILS surf instructors and their assistants. So even when you’re an intermediate or advanced surfer they will guide, develop, and work with you towards successfully passing your 10 days ISA & LS assessment that is hosted by an official ISA representative.

We will also organise several activities and surf trips and excursions all over the island. Among those excursions you will discover what Sri Lanka is about. We included a 5 day trip when we drive from Weligama to Arugam Bay (March Academy) or from Arugam Bay to Weligama (September Academy). We will make a stop in Ella that is famous for the traditional train ride and the Nine Arches Bridge – among the train ride we will also do hiking – abseiling – zipline and do a safari at Udewallawa National Park. But that is not all as we have lots more included.

Expect a once in a lifetime experience ! A lifelong memory that will change your life and possibly your career.

When you come to stay with us, you’re not just there for the surfing – there’s so much more to experience in Sri Lanka ! During your extended stay, you’ll have the opportunity to make lifelong friends and truly immerse yourself in the local culture. Weligama, our home base, is a popular destination for good reason – with sandy beach parties, lush green jungle, interesting people, and a unbeatable cuisine, you’ll quickly see why visitors return here time and time again.

And if you’re interested in exploring further afield, we offer several trips around the Island. Check out the videos below to get a glimpse of what these amazing excursions have to offer!

Although some surfing experience is recommended, it’s not always necessary to participate in the Surf Instructor course. We have had successful students who went through the Zero to Hero experience, indicating that anyone with a passion for surfing and a willingness to learn can enroll in the course.

To qualify for the Surf Instructor certification, one must possess a combination of essential surf skills and fitness levels. The timed run-swim-run of 200m completed in less than 5 minutes is a crucial component of the course that ensures participants possess the necessary physical stamina to handle the challenging conditions in the water.

In addition to fitness, aspiring surf instructors must also possess a certain level of proficiency in surfing. The ability to paddle out to the back of the waves, execute duck dives, consistently perform pop-ups on green waves, and execute basic maneuvers while turning both left and right are all critical skills that are necessary to obtain the qualification.

The Surf Instructor course is designed to help students develop and improve their surfing proficiency and fitness levels. Through a combination of instruction, practice, and feedback, participants will work on enhancing their skills and abilities. Whether through training drills, group sessions, or individual instruction, the course aims to equip aspiring surf instructors with the skills they need to pass the certification and succeed in their career.

No vaccine requirements to enter Sri Lanka!

Travel and cancellation insurance are essential for any traveler, as unforeseen circumstances can arise during any trip. Such circumstances can include accidents, medical emergencies, loss of baggage or passports, and trip cancellations or interruptions. Without insurance, travelers may find themselves facing significant financial losses.

Travel insurance provides coverage for such unforeseen events, ensuring that travelers are protected against financial losses that may arise due to these events. Cancellation insurance, in particular, provides coverage for the expenses incurred when a trip is canceled or interrupted due to unforeseen circumstances.

Thus, having travel and cancellation insurance is crucial for travelers as it offers peace of mind and financial protection during their journeys.

Book and Pay 100% upfront within 1 week after booking no options for payment plan possible.

We discount the flight with a maximum of € 550,- per flight per person. With a bit of luck you will have a free flight.

We only have 3 spots for the FREE flight option available for every course.
