ah, colin - ah colin, i don't know where your from but you are a man of my own heart. euros and isrealis? i've been surfing asia including sri lanka for 15 years and they are the worst people in the water i've ever had to deal with. surf wise, those guys are strictly thrid world mentality; they wait their turn for a wave with about as much dignity and manners as indians fighting to get in a 3rd class train compartment. most are status more than substance...have you seen many euro "surfers" without the "proper" gear? nah, they would'nt be caught dead without it. worst of all, many have no respect for the ocean. especially the snowboard kind who have this "go for it" macho attitude. they go out in conditions way beyond their ability(what... to prove their manhood?) and therefore are a danger to themselves and others, not to mention screwing up waves. i've had to rescue a few...because they broke their leashes and couldn't swim! if they pulled their rubbish at my home break, no doubt the locals would give them a well needed attitude adjustment.

How to fulfill your destiny - Learn too surf with weekend surf surf lessions. Buy some Volcom boardshorts and lets say.....ah.... a lost T-Shirt. Get some of those crazy Tribal surf tatoos. Paint your board just like Oscar Wright. Grow you hair long(remember surfers have long hair) Surf with no regard to etiquette or common sense. Speak like a Brit, German or Isreali. Killing it yet? You are now a fully fledged Euro Dork. Now Go hang out at A-Bay with all the other wankers that prolifirate our once beautiul spots.
Good quality maps - I am in Hikkaduwa for the momemt and I would like to make a bycicle tour in the neighbourhood, but it's pretty difficult to find a good map.Can anyone advice me where can I get a good map? I intend to stay for five months and I would really need it.

malaria - malaria tablets have recently had bad press in the uk,with reports of dispickable side effects,are they completely necesary for sri lanka ?if so,can any of you recomend a specific drug....on a completely different issue,i understand sri lanka is a devoutly religeous place,and as a muslim planning on staying in the south east/west for 3 months am i at an increased level of danger.regards

any suggestions for surfing in sl late jan/feb - Would like any places u can rec for surfing in SL in late jan/feb. I have about 9 days only so dont want to travel too far to get there
HOW IS THE ROCK IN JAN/FEB - I am planning visiting SL to surf in late jan/feb so would appreciate any suggestions for spots to go to. Only have 9 days so dont want to travel 24hrs to get there.
Sri Lanka - The "HILTON" is the pits and full of theives plus the management are complete tossers! Forget it! I found most of the places are the pits but really cheap.I stayed there for a long time and most of the people are nice. Need to keep your wits about you though. Dont bother trying the A Bay in the Jan Feb months as its not going to be working and the local businesses wont be ready for tourists. I would go back but not for a while as theres much nicer places to surf and better waves.
