I stayed with TTR in SriLanka for a week and absolutely LOVED it. I was genuinely surprised by how much learnt in just 1 weeks stay. The instructors are incredible, friendly but take it seriously which in my opinion is the perfect combination. Accom/ location/ food and ammenities are great. I truly couldn't recommend this expereince more! Thank you team, I'll be back!
The place to be if you like to focus on your surf! Just in front you have 5 spots to surf in walking distance. Each morning you can wake up and walk 100 meter to the shore and do your dawn patrol at sticks and marshies … The guys who are running this place are super down to earth and they’ll make your stay just perfect. It really felt that they want that you enjoy your stay and don’t look at their guest with dollar signs in the eyes. Real honest place which is super safe … (first place ever I left my quiver outside) Rooms are nice and comfortable. The food is great, the beer is cold and they even serve chilled coconuts which you don’t find that often in Sri Lanka. Can totally recommend this place and they are going to invest during the off season 2022 in things like a pool and stuff. Can’t wait to check that out next year!!! Cheers and thanks again for having me!! Martin 🤙🏼…
Joined for a week to progress or better said relearn what I thought I already knew how to do. The surf coaching is beyond outstanding. The team has developed a well working method that suits all levels even within one group. The morning surf with the team in the water is fun, safe and challenging. They take you to different spots to learn how to surf in every condition, read the waves, handle the lineup and have fun. The video analyses and theory later during the day is the moment to reflect on your technique and what to practice. The afternoon free surf allowed me to practice straight away what I have learned even just on the same day making my progression fast forward compared to my goals. Very mindful and insanely professional approach. I wish I would have learned with them surfing in the very beginning, but I am certain I will join them every year from now on instead. Shout out to Nikita, she is a true inspiration to be around in the water and on the land. Also of course big plause for the rest of the team to form such a strong, motivating and fun learning environment.…
The vibe is always high at the TTR house, with a great team behind it to carry this throughout your stay! Location is spot on, super close to all the important surf spots, saves time and money getting around. The Friday BBQ is social occasion of the week, the local chefs know how to tickle your taste buds. Cheers to the team for an awesome time
I had the most amazing time during my stay at Ticket to Ride. It would be impossible to progress my surfing as much as I did here without the great staff and their top quality coachings. Thanks for everything!
The ticket to ride surf house is in the perfect location, opposite one of the best surf spots on the South Coast. The local staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The surf instructors are highly experienced and put so much effort into getting all the guests surfing great waves, no matter what standard surfer you are. The rooms are comfortable and there is even a roof top bar where you can have a beer or coconut whilst watching the sunset. I recommend for anybody at any age and I would definitely go back.
I stayed at the Ticket to Ride Surf House in Ahangama during the third week of a 3.5 week surfing trip to Sri Lanka. I decided on TTR because of the fantastic reviews on the quality of surf coaching, and I was not disappointed. The TTR staff are knowledgeable, and made an effort to personalize instruction and feedback. They helped me achieve my goals in terms of developing my skills and they made me feel super co mfortable in the water. On top of that they are a crew of incredibly friendly people, and hanging out with them on dry land was also a big part of the positive experience. The house is located within a 5 minute walk of breaks suitable for all levels, making it incredible easy to pick up a board and get in the water outside of the fixed sessions when you are accompanied by the staff. The food is also great, and more than enough to keep you fueled for the hard work in the water. I've recommended this place to friends who are serious about improving their surfing. Top notch instruction, unbeatable location, great food and vibes. Thanks to the whole TTR team for the experience!…
From the moment we landed in Colombo, we were taken care of. After a long ( 20+ hour journey) we felt right at home). The coaches, the staff, everyone was there to make sure we pushed ourselves to be better, but had all of the necessary comforts!
These 10 weeks have been amazing! The surf house is located a bit outside ahangama with amazing surf and shops in walking distance. We had the best surf coaches and visited a variety of different surf spots throughout the 10 weeks. The fotographer catch your best waves and the hosts were lovely! Not to forget the local staff that made great food, made sure your room was clean, kept you safe at night and could help with whatever you needed. This trip was just amazing and made friends for life! Lots of love!
I spent 8 weeks (out of 10 since I did a 10 week surf trip) at the Ticket to Ride Surfhouse in Ahangama and I loved every single day there. The entire staff there is just lovely and does everything to make you happy. The location of the house is amazing as well, since several surf spots are in walking distance and others are just a couple of minutes of a Tuktuk drive away. The surf coaches are very professional and can help surfers at all levels to improve. We surfed most of the days twice (morning and afternoon) and had video analysis as well as yoga during the day. Highly recommend this place! :-)
