rent a surboard near Matara (srilanka)

« on: October 03 2006 04:10:00 »

Hi, next month I'm going to Dickwella, near Matara. I'd like to rent a Surfboard but I can't find a surfshop that could rent it.
Any help?

closest place from there that I know they rent/sell surfboards is Mambo Surfshop in Hikkaduwa... The boards aren´t in great condition though (pre Tsunami) so I think they won´t be much better now !
Good luck... Sri Lanka is a beautiful country !

You could try a guesthouse on Welligama beach not sure of the name they had a few mals for rent.Nice quite beach break there as well.Or maybe try the sufers bar in Mirrissa bang in front of the break there.

Hi Guys,
If you guys stay in near matara, why dont you go to "secret point" The best surfing beach in down south! (It's in between Matara and Dondra) there you can rent all the surfing staf, and will have a lot of fun.
