There is another great break South of Aragum Bay named the Peanut Farm. I don't know why, as there ain't no peanuts within an elephant's roar of the

You got it Mr Hoax - Well put - SL has many fun, little, gutless waves. If its a decent adrenilin rush you`re after you might be better off visiting the north east, looking for tigers. Nice place for a quite romantic beach hol with the missus though. Just gotta watch some of the locals with your chic, they dont half rate themselves the little blighters. As soon as you go in the water they´ll be on her like a bad rash. Oh well, cant really blame em - you´d need to skull a couple of bottles of the local whisky before you´d touch one of the local chicks - wouldnt even touch her with yours mate. Na realy, SL isn´t a bad place to kill a couple of weeks, just don´t expect too much from Huey. Better to go anywhere with that attitude regardless of destination.

Peanutfarm - Great place to learn how to surf, the local guys there are really cool, as long as you treat them with respect. Eazy to get there. Ask a tuktuk driver to take you there from arugambay. They normaly charge 400-650 rupes. After the tsunami, the old peanut farm is gone, but I know they are rebuilding it, in Srilankan style (tomorrow) so it should be done in a year or so.

sri lanka = hoax - the only wave in the area worth a long haul trip. like a indo wave on a bad day. if you can surf give sri lanka a miss and leave it too the beginners, sure it has its day, but still you couldnt even compare it too somewhere shit like dreamland. leave it for the israilis who think they surf like slater. dont get me started on hikadua as well. if you can surf properly there all about as good as your average home break. what the fuck was i doing listening to a swiss guy too tell me where too surf????????????
