I have taken some surf lessons from surf control Hikkaduwa in November 2016 and now again in June 2017. Instructors include the very professional owner sana and his brother tharanga. The lesson that they provide is really professional and I have learned a lot from them. They offer surf lessons all year round and it’s very affordable for the service they provide. I would highly recommend this surf school as it is not just some random men with surf boards on the beach offering lessons who have never even surfed themself. Also if you go into the surf control surf shop you can see pictures and many trophies that have been won in surf competitions by the guys from surf control. Great experience 😃 unfortunately I don’t need more lessons now but I will be renting boards from them again.
