Surf Espresso is a female hostel in Mirissa. It has six beds (three bunks), an attached bathroom with hot shower, and air conditioning. Every bed has a charging port and comfortable bedding.

Surf Espresso is set in a tropical lush garden, designed with a bohemian theme in mind. The front yard of the hotel is a lawn and in the backyard you can find the jungle and a paddy field where monkeys, mangoose, and peacocks like to roam around freely.

Program

During this program, you will enjoy surf lessons with certified ISA Level 1 surf instructors. The yoga sessions will be led by Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructors.

Jungle Yoga Shala

Surf Espresso has a beautiful jungle yoga shala where you can practice on your own, and also they have daily yoga classes at 7.30 and 10.30 a.m. in the jungle, 4.30 p.m. beautiful sunset yoga class on the palm tree hill, and night meditation class on the rooftop.

Surf & Yoga Mirissa offers regular mat yoga and Aerial yoga classes. All the teachers are Yoga Alliance certified. The teachers change on a regular basis, always giving a fresh energy every time for the yogi side of things.

Waves

The reason to run their surf camp in South Sri Lanka is because of the consistency of the surf as well as its favorable weather and winds. It rarely gets big and it rarely gets flat. There is always soft, friendly white water on the inside for building confidence on specific board skills and typically smooth, unbroken waves each morning, perfect for more experienced guests and level 2-3 surfers wishing to challenge themselves.

Surfing lesson

Simply put, Surf Espresso sticks to an upper limit of 1:4 instructors to students ratio. Also, it’s important to note that Surf Espresso does not mix ability levels, therefore you will feel more comfortable with your instructions.

Teaching ratio

  • Maximum group size for surfing, 5 students to 1 instructor
  • Maximum group size for mat yoga, 12 students to 1 instructor
  • Maximum group size for Arial yoga, 3 students to 1 instructor
