The history of Soul Temple began in 2016 with the opening of surfer cafe Soul near the beach in Weligama. The excellent cuisine, and, to a large extent, the generous serving sizes, have earned Soul Café a reputation for the most delicious place in the surroundings.
Next project was a small cozy hotel in neighboring Mirissa. And finally, a dream come true - Soul Surfing School.
Soul Surfing School is the only one on the south coast of Sri Lanka, built from scratch according to the architectural design of our friend - a young architect from London. Everything is here to make surfing training joyful, comfortable and effective. Professional instructors, brand new surfboards for any level of surfing, spaces for theory lessons and skate half-pipe for working out technical elements when your body is tired after being in the ocean.
All this is Soul Temple. The space where the spirit of surfing lives and everything is united with one goal is to turn the acquaintance with surfing in Sri Lanka into a passion and love for all following life.
We are a team of surfers who created and built Soul Temple Of Surfing to
bring people together with a passion for the ocean and develop a culture of surfing in Sri Lanka. We surf everyday.
