There are so many surfing school along the beach and make me so confused where to choose. Freedom surfing seem have higher price than others place. 2000 rupee for 1 hour when the other place offer 2h from 1500 - 2000 rupee but i have great experience with Madu - my trainer. Even i told him I'm dont know how to swim and never surf before, he teach me slowly and remind me safety first. And he also really patient, encourage me and never get mad with me when I failed so many time and make he feel tired. After 2 lesson I feel confident to stand up in the surf and could able to do it so many times and it's was the great experience ever.

I had the best time during my stay at the Freedom Surf Villa and during my 3 lessons at Freedom Surf School! Leomi is super profesional and helpful. We had a great communication via e-mail and agreed on everything in just 2 messages. The villa is very close to the beach, rooms are very nice and spacious. And the breakfast! The smoothie bowls are amazing! Everyone are super nice and welcoming. I had also scheduled 2 lessons with Gayan but I have booked one more cause I did not have enough! Gayan is one of the best surf teachers I have ever met. He explains everything very well and he is very patient. I can be a stubborn student but he manage to improve me skills! Ruwan - the owner of the surf school is super nice, helpful and profesional. During my short stay everything went perfect! Now I have to come back for a longer stay :) I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Amazing place! The villa is great, Leomi is very professional and friendly, and made me feel like family. It is very close to the center but also quiet for those who want to enjoy a surf trip and relax. Surf wise, Gayan was an amazing coach, I improved a lot surfing with him! Definitely recommend!

I've been to Freedom Surf School twice: in April and October 2019. And I will come here again if I go back to Sri Lanka! Madu is an amazing coach! He explains everything, what and how to do during the lesson, how the waves work and so on. He watches you surf and then explains your mistakes, what you need to change to succeed. I am very happy that in April I came to Freedom surf school and Madu trained me. Thanks a lot!

We spent 2 weeks in Weligama at Freedom, the place is great! Super quiet but close to the center, the room is very spacious and clean and the common area are perfect to chill, cook and have fun with the host/staff and the other guest. You can also enjoy outside area in the terrace and rooftop (up coming). Surfing wise we had the best time, surfing one or two times a day with a very nice and professional teacher! We improved a lot in such a short time. I do recommend to go there! You won’t regret it :) thanks a lot for everything, I hope to see you soon ❤️
