Life changing trip

10/10

My ticket to ride 10 week instructor course was absolutely amazing. Besides being able to surf in the most breathtaking spots every day, I met incredible people and made life long friends. It was a place where I could truly be myself and it definitely changed my life. It was nice to be in a place that was so different from anywhere I've ever been before. Some of my favorite memories are: surfing next to a pod of dolphins while the sun was setting, going bungee jumping, Friday night South African "braai"s, dancing in the rain, cliff jumping, hiking, and laughing every day. I definitely had some of the best days of my life while on this trip and I can't thank ticket to ride enough for everything.

How can this program be improved?

This is not something that can actually be controlled...but it would be nice if the waves were surfable every day :)

I guess also it would be better if there was more time to be away from the group, as everyone is together a lot.

If Carlsberg did Surf Holidays....

10/10

By far the best holiday experience EVER!
From the moment you are picked up at the airport and greeted with a friendly hug to the bleary eyed early morning send off, this is by far one the most memorable trips I've ever experienced.
The atmosphere is electric from start to finish with excitement of catching a wave and stories from the night before, the banter bus is always full throttle and rearing to go (just what is needed after a few too many Spanish waters!).
The professionalism of the Staff & Instructors is second to none....and i can honestly say you will be upright on a surf board looking like a pro within a week...Guaranteed :)
And no need to worry about safety, they have this covered better than a sequined dress on Caitlin Jenner.
If you have ever wanted to try Surfing or improve your Surfing skills then this is 100% the company to learn with.
I cant wait for the next

14 unforgettable days of surf, friends, palms and spicy food

9/10

hi all! in April this year I spent two of the most incredible weeks in the South of Sri Lanka, with Ticket to Ride and Errant Surf School. The accommodation was just in front of an amazing beach, and a short tuk tuk ride away from lots of other beautiful and pretty much deserted beaches where you could surf, at different levels of difficulty. I loved the people that I met there, that's what really made the difference between an okay vacation and an incredible one. the Errant staff, Max, Angela and Lee were amazing, very helpful and always ready to meet our needs including Max who was taking us to surf everyday outside of the surf classes, or recommending beaches we could go to! Surf instructors were very very good, Gilmar and Lucy used an approach different from all the others I had experienced before (e.g. using a swiss ball on the beach to understand how balance works) and they are so lovely btw! Food: food available at all time, in big quantities and very good. Breakfast was my favourite, with fresh fruit every day, eggs, toasts and coffee served in this incredible location. everything was included in the price, and Chef was ready to cook at any time you would ask him. Dinners all together, lots of barbecues, curries, good conversations and good music to dance to really contributed to make the experience one that I will not forget. I would definitely go back with Errant (probably testing a new place) but I highly recommend the Sri Lanka experience, Ahangama is in a very good location to visit other sites such as National Parks, the colonial town Galle, tea plantations, small buddhist temples, and even a small rave on the hidden Jungle Beach for those who want to party! thanks to Errant to make this such an incredible holiday!

Surf and Yoga in Sri Lanka

8/10

I spent 2 weeks with Ticket to Ride surfing on Sri Lanka's beautiful south coast. The area is a tropical paradise with palm-fringed beaches, awesome surf, mouth watering food and natural beauty which is rugged and untouched. The local people are welcoming and hospitable, eager to share their country with travellers.

The trip itself was fantastic! I gained from it what I wanted…amazing surfing with good instructors and perfect conditions. The group was great, and fun times were definitely had!

If you're after an easy going trip, with awesome surfing, yoga to ease those tired muscles, good food and good company…then this is a trip for you!!

Be ready to switch off, relax and unwind!!! :)

Tropical paradise!

10/10

I was in Santa Teresa for the one month surf adventure, and I had the time of my life! We were staying in two self catering apartments at Don Jons, which were great and very comfortable (especially the hammocks!), and so close to the beach. The beaches are amazing - warm sea, perfect waves and so tropical...literally paradise. The surf lessons were great and everyone improved so much, and the daily yoga sessions were fantastic too. For any foodies, the food was absolutely delicious, especially the mangos and pineapple! I would 100% recommend this trip to anyone, you will have an incredible time and most likely not want to leave!
