Step forward Luguda Travel, a British based Tour Operator in sri lanka and My Surf Camp a sri lankan based surf school in weligama. Along with he’s expert team of surf instructors and master yogi, he’s mission is to provide a safe learning space in the waves, where beginners can learn the basics to standing and more advanced surfers can hone their skills.

At the My Surf Camp Weligama retreat we had three professional male surf teachers who split our 12-person group into various skill levels, so that each of us could receive the right amount of attention to achieve our personal goals. One group for beginners, the second, intermediate, for slightly more experienced surfers and there was also an advanced group, for those who wanted to learn new techniques and brush up on their existing skills.

What is yoga?

Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.

The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.

The practice originated in India about 5,000 years ago and has been adapted in other countries in a variety of ways. Yoga is now commonplace in leisure centres, health clubs, schools, hospitals and surgeries.

Can yoga help prevent falls?

Yes. Yoga improves balance by strengthening your lower body – particularly your ankles and knees – thereby reducing your chances of falling.

However, falls may sometimes be caused by a health condition, in which case it’s a good idea to see your GP or visit a falls clinic at a local hospital.

The surf lessons

As well as practical sessions in the water, they also offered technical training. We learnt everything from how to read a wave and how waves move in formation to surf etiquette. I loved the theory classes that the sachin provided by drawing pictures on the sand with a stick, whilst we basked in the sun. The instructors also give each pupil one to one time and individual analysis to help us improve.

Breakfast and dinner are included as part of your stay, but we tended to eat out for lunch. For a few pounds (usually around £3-4) you can eat and drink like a king (or queen) in Weligama.
