It's always a bit daunting travelling to somewhere new. The internet only tells you so much, so having someone knowledgable to point you in right direction is invaluable. Garrath was a fantastic surf guide. The first few days of our trip we got to surf at least 5 different waves. Some of these spots are off the main road and virtually impossible to find on your own. Garrath and Verity also told us about some really interesting local sites to visit and because of them, we were able to really make the most of our short stay.

Verity really made everything efficient and smooth, with just the right amount of information and great organisation. From the moment I was picked up at the airport I knew I was in good hands. Great food, good surf and warm vibes. What a pleasure of a holiday. Cheers to G&V!
Making it Easy!

My yearly Surf Travel trips are a highlight and in 15 years I have never re-booked the same trip 2 years running….until this year after visiting Southern Sri Lanka. Only weeks after returning from an epic trip in January 2015, we re-booked with Garrath and Verity for our end of year 2016 trip. The decision was easy, uncrowded waves, waves of every performance level and having Garrath share his local knowledge and take us to new spots every day based on swell size and wind direction. New surfing destinations are great, but it can often take a few days to tune into local conditions and find some of the lesser known surf spots. With Garrath as our local guide we were always in the right spot, on the right tide and often the only ones in the water. One of the few remaining pristine untouched coastlines to explore and can’t wait to get back there this year.

Surf Stay Sri Lanka was exactly what we were looking for. It truly is a bespoke surf travel company. Garrath and Verity were amazing, they truly tried to understand what exactly we were looking for so they could recommend the best option for us each day. The combination of local knowledge these guys have with their easy going attitudes is a winning combination. Whether it be wave hunting for uncrowded little gems, little inland adventure trips, meal recommendations to general logistics these guys have it nailed! We had such a great time (and this was during the “off season”) we definitely want to come back to see how good it gets “in season
Exactly what we wanted
