TRIP ADVISOR REVIEWS

  • Finally found an excellent surf instructor!

    After having had many surf lessons in different places all over the world, I have finally found an excellent surf instructor in Fawas at Safa Surf School... In just a couple of days he has given me loads of tips and pays so much attention to the detail of your surfing techniques that he can easily help you improve in no time! Fawas is fun and kind but also develops your ability to become a more confident and competent surfer! more

  • The best instructor and an excellent experience!

    Safa Surf School is the best! Fawas made our stay in Arugam Bay the best it could be. He is an excellent instructor and always puts safety first. He is very professional and easy to be around :) I can not compliment him enough! more

  • The only man for the job!

    I can't recommend SAFA Surf School highly enough. Fawas is patient, kind and fun and not to mention a wonderful teacher! He speaks perfect English and goes to a lot of effort to make sure your stay in Arugam bay is a memorable one. My friends and I booked a safari trip to Yala East through him and he also arranged a share taxi for us to get back to Colombo. Great guy, great school. Thank you! I'll be back. more

  • Great, fun, and efficient instructor!

    I had the pleasure to learn and surf with Fawas, the owner of Safa Surf School. I really had a great time learning for the first time surf with him. He's a really patient and funny instructor. I do recommend Safa Surf School, for good "price-quality" and excellent provision of their services. more

  • Perfect 10! Aragum Bay's Best!

    I am so happy that I decided to book my surf lessons with Safa Surf School - it turned out even better than I hoped. The entire trip, not only the surf lessons, was super chilled & cool. I am counting down the days when I can get back their again. Amazing teacher, cool guy, beautiful location more

  • Amazing super Fawas!

    Hi, I stayed there for 3 weeks and I really enjoyed it! All the staff is super friendly and Fawas is a great surf instructor in both theory and practice! Fawas can arrange your whole trip for you (accomodation, surfboards, transport...) and he does it very well! Close your eyes and go! Cheers to everyone in Arugam Bay! Yass from Belgium ;) more

  • The best surf guru!

    You don't need to look further. I've had beginner lesson before but Fawas is way more profesional and a good instructor. I learnt more things and my friend who's a first time managed to stand on the board on his first try! Price is a little higher but you won't regret it. more

  • Sri Lanka finest person!

    First of all Fawas is really good and licensed professional instructor. I had no experience at all when I first arrived but after first lesson I was able to stand on the board and after few lessons I was able to ride a wave. Fawas is also really nice guy and showed us a lot of places near arugam bay, where we could see wild life, find restaurants. This guy really cares of your experience and wants you to enjoy Sri Lanka and will give good advice how to do so. more

  • Génial 10/10 !!!

    Lors de mes 2 voyages à Arugam Bay, j'ai eu la chance de prendre des cours avec Fawas et c'était génial. Fawas est très pro, fiable et fait très attention à la sécurité. Le petit plus est sans doute la bonne humeur permanente de Fawas et heureusement sa patience. N'hésitez pas à lui demander aussi de vous guider (il est guide aussi), je l'ai fait et la journée était géniale découverte de temple, nourriture locale, nous avons vu des éléphants à l’état sauvage. more
