Sri Lanka in February« on: November 20 2015 00:11:00 »
What is the best way to travel with my surfboard. I am a bit concerned about the busride?!
And something else... Do you guys have any recommendation about a nice quiet town with a beginner spot close by as well as an intermediate spot? We are a group of 6 and 4 never surfed before the other 2 are ok with 5-6ft waves..
What is the best way in Sri Lanka if i want to have somebody to teach this group for 2-3 days ?
Thx a lot,

Best place for beginners in Feb is Weligama. It's sandy beach breaks perfect for newbies and there's better intermediate waves short distance to the east and west of Weligama. It's also a really cool little local town but zero night life. (Mirissa is close by for parties.) There are lots of surf camps and people giving lessons. My friend just opened a place called "The Surfer". I rented a room in his family house a few years ago when he was still coming up with a business plan. Super friendly family and he knows all the breaks on the south coast. Another good place to stay is the Plantation Surf Inn but it's closer to more difficult waves (but still close to Weligama). Owner and family are also really friendly and I think they remodeled recently.

If you have a group of people it's much better to hire a car/van with driver for transport with boards. The surf accommodation can arrange this for you and it should be a bit cheaper than booking at the airport.
