The remote working community

Post surf g&t’s are an old hiri tradition which you should respect or we’ll be offended. A few short years ago​,​ hiriketiya was just a small fishing village. The locals are happy that tourism has come to the bay but the normal village life is still going on amongst the hotels and cafes so be mindful of that when you visit​,​ enjoy the bay and the hospitality of the people but pick up your trash and show respect to the locals

The coworking environment

Coworking in Dickwella​,​ Sri Lanka Need to still get work done during the retreat? No worries. Find focus in our coworking space - inside or outside. In between surf and music sessions sessions​,​ our workspace is a good palce to hustle​,​ get some good coffee in you and maybe meet some other people who gave the 9 to 5 the middle finger. A sure cure when you need new perspective or a break from a project is to get on a scooter and get lost on the lonely back roads through the paddy fields and small villages that eventually wind their way back to the coast. there is nothing more inspiring than lush tropical jungle​,​ empty beaches and uncrowded surf. The best thing for creatives is to keep adding to the library in your head​,​ ultimately your work is the sum of your experiences.. so take time to live life. 👐

About the surf

Here you'll both find the mellow waves to ride on a longboard during Sunday sunsets​,​ as well as the barrels you might love to eat for breakfast. Whether you're a total beginner​,​ intermediate or an absolute ripper​,​ you will surely find the waves you're looking for in South Sri Lanka​,​ and in Dickwella specifically. The easiest way to get around is to throw your boards on the roof of a tuk and you're free to roam the coast. There are three surf lessons included in your week package. You can also rent your board for the month when you're here. We're located close to the Hiriketiya point break. The water is beautifully clear waves at Hiriketiya Beach are getting famous with more and more surfers finding Hiri as a place to hang out for a while. The dream of finding fun waves without crowds is still a reality in Sri Lanka - get off the beaten path and explore the south coast..
