Magical experience - Tropicsurf amazing & resort an oasis

I was taken to nearby locations for beginners surfing that barely had anyone else in the water. Steve is a great teacher due to his surfing experience, his passion for the ocean and its energy, and his excellent interpersonal skills. His Sri Lankan assistant was very helpful and did an excellent job taking videos of my surfing, which Steve later sent me for keeps.

Gorgeous resort, exceptional service

My husband is a more experienced surfer and I am a beginner, but Steve was a patient and encouraging coach for us both, taking us to the appropriate local surf breaks and ensuring we both took our surfing to the next level! Our Tropicsurf expeditions combined with the luxury and personal attention from our villa host Tharanga and the other friendly and helpful staff at the resort resulted in an exceptional overall experience.

The most amazing honeymoon

We also went surfing with Steve - he's great & made us feel very safe on the big waves. If you do decide to go surfing in Sri Lanka, please consider going with Steve at TropicSurf. The water can be quite dangerous so it's important to be with an expert who knows where is safe to surf.

Incredible people. Amazing spirit. Excellence all around!

I also took a surf lesson during my stay through onsite 3rd party Tropicsurf and it was a blast and well worth the very reasonable price. Harrison was my instructor and once again he was the best of the best. His teaching was clear, direct and suited just for my skill level. You can tell that he really loves what he does for it comes out in his teaching.

Amazing stay, exceptional staff, beautiful resort

TropicSurf also has a presence at the resort, and Martin who leads it is also exceptional. Both my kids took surfing lessons and it was an amazing experience for our family

Tremendous Guiding!

We have just returned from a family holiday in Sri Lanka and wanted to express our appreciation of Steve Taylor. There were five of us; my son and I being the surfers and my wife and two daughters being absolute beginners. Steve did a tremendous job of getting waves for the boys and getting the girls on their feet. The weather was changeable and conditions didn't help him. The girls have some wonderful photos and film of their first surfing expedition and he was especially attentive with our nine year old who was a little apprehensive to start with but left stoked! (as we all did). I also want to mention Steve's right hand man, Cham who also did and great job, both in and out of the water. Can't wait to go back.

I would like to commend you for the quality of your instructors.

My 11year old son and I were in the Maldives before and in Sri Lanka now. On this trip we were very impressed with Aaron because of the effort that he put into making sure that we caught lots of waves, improved our technique and had fun. He was supportive and encouraging when we missed the wave or fell off and explained what happened so we could develop more awareness and improve. I have surfed before without help or guidance and didn’t realise what a difference it makes to have a good teacher. Even my son whom has surfed with various instructors improved more than ever. Chamuth was looking out for him, giving little tips and making sure he was safe as well. It was such a pleasure to see my son’s little head disappear down the line as he caught one long wave after the other. Thank you for finding the best people. We are already planning our next surf trip to Australia through your team, to make sure we have another amazing surf experience!
