info - The best way to go to Hikka would be by bus to Colombo Fort St (2h) and from there by train (3h). This will cost you less than a $. Trains and busses can be crowded -especially not nice with all your luggage and a surfboard- so a taxi could be prefered (5h approx 6000 LKR=60$). A good place to stay is Hansa surf hotel or Why Not. Very well located and cheap (5-8$ a night for a room). Bring your own sheets though -its not Hilton!

Sri Lankan west coast - I live and work in Colombo, and often surf in the weekends. The season on the west coast is from november to april. Other 6 months should be good on the east-coast (A-bay) but I haven't went myself. You can't surf on the westcoast out of season. Hikkasuwa is an excellent place. Theres a main break with big waves and some smaller beach-breaks right next to it. Locals are nice, its definitly not crowded and prices for boardrent, accomodation and living are low.

Surfing tours in Sri Lanka - I have been visiting Sri Lanka the last 3 years and each time i have had a brilliant time. I always contact Chaminda from East Surf tours and he collects me and my friends from the airport and takes us to the best surf spots and budget but good accommodation around the coast of sri lanka. If anyone is thinking of going surfing in sri lanka i would recommend contacting Chaminda for an affordable, good fun but safe tour! his number is 0094 776242795 -- have fun!!!
Is this a fair estimation of Sri Lanka - Thinking of hitting SL for a few weeks in Dec or Jan.. is the desc from wannasurf accurate? Sri Lanka is average in all departments, the surf the people the vibe everything. Some days are good in the water but if everyone who goes there is honest it is crowded. The local surfers are pretty good and are getting more and more aggro towards foreigners each season ""
Looking for a second hand board - Would like to buy second hand board.Arriving colombo at June 9 and heading to A-bay.Drop me a line to email@example.com.Cheers,
