We are guests of yours (from May 9-May 25) at Soul and Surf. We are having a very nice time, thank you, but we wanted to say in particular how grateful we are that you have Sunil working here. He has done a superb job with helping us with the most odd requests (including finding us a palmist, an astrologer, a gemologist, a jeweler), and he is always enthusiastic, kind, gracious, tireless, patient, gentle, professional, friendly and thoughtful. We are writers for the New York Times and Vice, among other papers and magazines, and we travel a lot, and stay in a lot of hotels of all different kinds, and we have rarely if ever come across someone as good at his job as Sunil. He is always here, always working, always solving problems. Even on his day off he was here and took an hour of his time to help us. We can’t express strongly enough how he seems, at times, to carry the whole hotel on his shoulders. (That said, all of your staff have been terrific).
Thanks very much, we hope to stay here again or at one of your “pop-ups” soon,
Clancy Martin (NYT, Contributing Editor at Harper’s) and Amie Barrodale (NYT, Editor at Vice)

Surf Instructor Sri Lanka – Level 1

December 4th to April 30th

We require a surf coach with decent experience to help us deliver a thorough, detailed and professional weekly surf lesson development plan to include different levels of surfers, theory lessons and video correction sessions. As a key team member you will be required to act as a host throughout a guests stay, attending meals and events and helping the managers to get things done about the retreat.

Experience of working and living in developing countries is a distinct advantage, experience in Sri Lanka even more so. Current surf coaching qualifications (ISA, ASI or equivalent), beach lifeguard and professional liability insurance are a must.

Use the form below to contact us and give us a quick overview paragraph or two with the reasons why you’d be a good fit for Soul & Surf in particular demonstrating a good understanding of us, our ethos and our background, plus attach your CV.

Please also tell us a bit about your tastes, we’re more Rasta over Medina, Bing over Quiksilver, Morning coffee and chats over all night booze ups. If you don’t put all this lot together for us we’ll have to presume you’re not really serious about the position.
