Our Qualifications

All instructors are International Surfing Association qualified and hold an in-date International Life Saving Federation Water Safety Award. Very importantly this ILS award has been designed for surfing instructors, and is renewed every 2 years. All our guest instructors also hold these qualifications.

We run ISA instructor training courses in Sri Lanka at Surf School Sri Lanka and have trained many ISA coaches over many years. This guarantees a level of safety of the highest standard.

Do check if the schools you may use in the future carry these awards and check if they are current and in date.

If you have an interest in attaining any of these awards and qualifications please contact us.
