Looking to buy a surfboard or two

Hey, I'm heading to Sri Lanka in a few months. I'm flying to Colombo but will be driving round most of the country.

My friend and I are planning to each buy a board. Does anyone know where we could get boards for a good price? Also how much will a board typically cost in Sri Lanka?

RE: Looking to buy a surfboard or two

Strongly suggest bring a board from your home country or just hire boards . Even crap second hand boards are super expensive and there’s hardly any to choose from. If you are new to surfing you won’t benefit from buying the wrong board . You can hire cheaply at most popular surf breaks, and down the south west you can hire and then take the boards to other breaks if you want.  You could plan on hiring and if you see one of sale from another traveller you could get one then.
If you buy one before you go, get a tough expoxy and a board cover, you’ll dang the shit out of them on tuk tuk roofs
