Compare Sri Lanka to Bali

« on: February 20 2008 09:02:00 »

In Bali I found a lot of reef, a lot of crowds ... a lot of world class surf - and a few areas of interest around which to travel. Are there big differences to be found in SL?

hi mate, sri lanka no world class surf destination. big crowds of not so good surfers and not so friendly locals on main spots. november to march on the west coast, april to october on the east coast. lots of empty waves but small and weak swell most of the time. more space to move around than tiny bali. good to learn and chill, many places to visit outside the surf, wildlife great. all in all good for holidays not for hardcore surf trip. food ok but nothing great. go there in june / july / august, start from the bottom south and travel on the east coast. enjoy

Thanks for the info mate - if I go it will be July and August so your advice is spot on. I'm hoping to get my girlfriend to meet me out there for the last couple of weeks so it seems like a good place to venture about in as well.
