Aruguam is the best wave in SL from Apr-sept.  Hikkudua is probably the worst surfing town i've ever stayed in and a horrible place to relax. the only up side to this place is that its cloase to Colombo. other than that its overpriced and filled with the worst of sri lankan culture.  the main reef is mushy and almost never barrels. i just got back last week and it was super crowded with agro locals and expats.

Not too sure about the taxi rates as it's quite far.  If you're travelling with a few people then it might be quite affordable.  otherwise you can catch the bus down the coast for abour $5.  There are also mini busses that are air-conditioned and they might cost about $10,  only problem is that they may charge you for another seat for your surf luggage on the roof!!

Hope that helps!
