how safe? - my boyfriend and me are planning to go surfing in the south-west of sri lanka around december / january. does anybody know how safe it is there right now? seems hard to interprete the different news these days. would appreciate up-to-date news directly from the beach.
- I've been to Sri Lanka before and surfed from Bentota down through Hik to Mirissa. This time I'm heading further South &West at the end of Nov towards Tangalle. Anyone know much about the area and breaks ? I won't be making it up to Arugam bay unfortunately on this trip. Any must see and must do things would be appreciated especially news on breaks around the area ?
surf boards to rent - We're hoping to go to the south of Sri Lanka as a family next July/August (07). Can anyone tell us whether you can get boards to hire reasonably priced and recommend somewhere or will it be so hard that we'd better pay to bring them with us?

Travel advisory : october 2006. - from CathaySeas.com :At the end of October, peace talks are supposed to happen in Switzerland, between the Sri Lankan government and the Tamil Tigers rebels, who claim the secession of the North and East parts of the island.The two parties want to be in a strong position to open the negociations and this has led to several serious incidents in the past weeks... so much so that the peace talks may be cancelled and the escalation may trigger more clashes and fightings in the short term.By september a naval battle happened when the rebels defended a cargo ship full of weapons against the Sri Lankan navy. Later on, a suicide attack by Tamil Tigers killed 90 navy sailors. By october, a land battle happened not far from Trincomalee (Northeast), to keep control of the area of Jafna. More than 130 soldiers died there and the rebels have kept their line.So now, the rebels are shifting the fighting ground away from their so-called homeland to safeguard ‘their’ civilians. In that sense, the battle front is no more limited to the frontier of the claimed Tamil Tigers territory. The targets are always clearly identified as military servicemen or structures and both the Sri Lankan army and the Tamil Tigers fight in uniforms, an important difference with civil war-like conflicts (Gaza strip, Iraq and the likes).Indeed, because the front line is shifting, the two opponents will fight in open areas, those who were safe and secure until now –surfers, you should feel concerned now.One of these possible new fighting areas is the vicinity of ARUGAM BAY, a good surfing place with quality waves all around.By moving forward towards South, the Tamil Tigers would enter this area and -between two actions against the Sri Lankan army- may choose to have a rest to admire your inspiring style in the surf.This is why we issue a TRAVEL ADVISORY for SRI LANKA : you can go, but keep an eye on the local news.
