Midigama and Rent boards? - Hi There! Can anybody tell me if you can rent or buy good boards on the island and where and for how much? Am travelling through India first and want to travel light. Is Malaria a probleme anywhere on the Island?Has the spot at MIDIGAMA suffered from the Tsunami?Thanks for answering.
transport - hello guys, I'm going to Sri Lanka on the 11th of september and was wandering if anyone could tell me how it works and how much its costs to get a taxi from the airport to Colombo and how much the transport from Colombo to Aragum Bay is. Thanks for your help and if anyone is arriving around the same time and wants to share transport, let me know. Cheers Henk
Sri Lanka in January? - Cheers for all the advice re Sri Lanka and the Tamils. We were hoping to get to Sri Lanka in January for a month or so - does anyone know what the swells and winds are like at that time? Which coast would be best? Any advice is appreciated - thanks in advance.
A-bay - Theres no problem at the moment around the Bay with the Tamil fighting going on, all the trouble is further north of the island.You neednt worry too much for the moment (thats not to outrule trouble but at the minute its relatively safe), their not trying to spoil the tourist industry so foreigners are safe from harm. The tsunami did enough damage to last 10 years for tourism.Waves are pumping at the moment, the next week swell looks solid, double over head for the next week at least...pack a biggish board, the point should peel right the way through.
SRI LANKA TRAVEL (A BAY)...how bad is the trouble? - HELP!!! has anyone just come back from Sri Lanka - like in the last week or so? got my flight booked to Colombo on the 25th Aug and then booting it to A BAY (dood from A BAY is picking us up at the airport) on the east coast. the fco.gov.uk says that its a badun up north - Puttalam in the west to Trincomalee in the east (no probs!)...and also coastal areas of the Ampara district north of Pottuvil (...uh-oh?!). rang the embassy and they are advising against it. wots the score? I'm expecting road blocks etc, but wot about gun fights, mines, shelling...is me and my mates gonna be OK? one of my mates is twitching and wants to bail, but me and my other mate wanna hang on - to be honest he is totally unfazed by it all, I'm kind've in between! any impartial info on recent developments in Sri Lanka would be muchos appreciated - just to set my mates twitchiness at ease! (or not...uh-oh!) cheers guys fuzzbox
security advice - I do agree with what is said. But before you go, check with your embassy in Colombo. They have the facts and will tell you the situation. Sri Lanka is not that safe, the situation can get out of control, and then it is important that the embassy knows how to contact you. When driving from Colombo to Arugam bay, you enter Ampara district,that is an area where the tamil are opereating, and the tamil tigres put at times mines on the road, if you are on that bus or van, being a turist or local does not matter. They will not try to assasinate you nor kidnapp you, but if you should end between military and tamil tigers fire, the bullets will not distinguish.so before you go, contact your embassy.
