highseason in arugam bay.stay at rangas beach hut.
if you cant find it  ask for ranga .everybody knows him.
its definetely worth going!!
take aminibus from the airport.dont book inside the airport but walk out and then bartgain for the best price.maybe hook up with a few other surfers heading eastways.a minivan should cost about 5-6 thousand rp.

Heya,  yeah there are waves in SL during July....there's the main point in arugam bay and the 'baby point' is just starting to work around then as well.  There's also a few other beach breaks around the area that are quite good fun too.  Personally I would recomend lahiru place or sorryas as places to stay but there's quite a few nice guest houses popping up around the place.  Also you can get a bus there from columbo for a lot lot cheaper than a minivan if u cant find any other surfers!
