Heading to Arugam Bay in June, what is security like now? - HI, I am heading to Arugam Bay in late June with my wife for a surf trip. How is the area security-wise right now. Is it still relatively safe to transit via car from Colombo to Arugam Bay and back? If any of you have recent experience in regard to hiring a car, etc to get from Airport to A-Bay and back, with prices paid, etc, please let me know as soon as you can.Cheers,Will Van De BergUNEPKabul, Afghanistan

You should read the news before going to Sri lanka - If you have not been scared off by the recent bomb attacks and the now current civil war which has started in late April then make sure you pack a bullet proof vest and war helmet. EVen the international peace keeping monitors have been shot at last week. The govt is back to air raids and combat which means the LTTE will not take it laying down and retaliate. You're brave men heading over to A'Bay. Send some money to thee poor buggers who were affected by the tsunami though if you don't go.
should i take 8'2 or 6'9 board - I am going to land 2 july 06 and will be surfing east coast but have not decided which board to take any help would cool.I mainly use my 8'2 in Perth Western Australia
By Need HelP!!!
after the tsu - Does anybody know if the tsunami has afectted the sand bars of POTTUVIL POINT and CROCODILE ROCK??And if it has, are they going to be okay for this july???Please awnser!!!!
By What a shame
Arugam Bay off limits again - Big problems in SL again after a couple of years of good peace but after the last couple of months and the recent bombing in Colombo the Govt have resumed the air strikes in the Northand East on LTTE bases a couple of days ago. This means traveling to A'Bay is stupid to say the least. Best to check govt advisories from your country and avoid at all costs, Colombo is still ok but check points everywhere as of yesterday and over 100 dead in last couple of weeks. LTTE getting moreand more desperate and going over to the bays is now dangerous.

Don't expect much from SL - 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 and full of wankers from everywhere around the world, even guys and girls from UK/Israel/Italy etc who can't surf but are the "Big Surf Trip Man" but are carving it up if you ask them! the local surfers are pretty good and are getting more and more aggro towards foreigners each season, worst of all the tourists try to speak their 3-4 words in Sinhala and call the local guys "Machung" etc. which makes it worse and just makes them look like idiots, but unfortunatly they thinkit is cool and add to their attitude theat they have loads of money and act like they are suddenly high rollers but they all back at home they are a regualr Joe and probably have nothing. Every tourist snakes each other and it is normal to see 4/5 people riding the one wave and dropping in. Add to this the Long board riders, not the real longboarders who rip but the ones who can stand up on a long board but can't ride a shortboard, take the waves right out wide and surf through the pack then without hisitation paddle straight back to the take off and go again & again. Get the picture! this is the real story, I've lived here and surfed here for years, some touring surfers are great, usually the ones who are from the real surfing countries and they are easy going, the rest of them are jerks and treat the place like a disco. The tourists think the locals enjoy them being there, when they sit around and chat about it they have had a gutfull. So there you go, don't come here if you have a group of 10 come on your own or with a good mate.
