Hi, I'm Thilina, born and raised in Weligama, Sri Lanka. A surfer and a coach. I own Layback. A boutique surf retreat, located in the heart of Weligama. With the beach only a few minutes away from our doorstep, surfing is part of our daily routine. Yet, despite of its buzzing location in the midst of local life, Layback is a quiet getaway for surfers and travellers. I have a passion for surfing and a love for teaching. I offer some of the best surf lessons on the south coast and will ensure you have an amazing surf adventure! I believe I can give you a wonderful surfing adventure as I rank as the highest rated surf coach in Sri Lanka on Airbnb. Weligama is Sri Lanka's number 1 destination for beginner and intermediate surfers with a two-kilometer-long beach break. It's safe, fun and not crowded so the ideal spot for beginners!
