Excellent Surf School

Dulip and his brother Lesitha started surfing at the age of 13 and since then it has been their life passion. From many years of teaching experience, the most important lesson they have learned is that it is very important to give students as much attention as possible from the start. This is why they give undivided attention to all their surf students.
