« on: July 26 2008 23:07:00 »

Hai, Im looking to get in touch with some local surfers in Sri Lanka / Colombo. I work in Colombo and planning to go to Hikka on weekends to learn to surf.  Would be great to get in touch with any of u in Sri Lanka to get some advise!

I have been surfing in Sri Lanka for about 7 years and there are a lot of locals.  There are some Sri Lankan surfers and they are ok.  There are some western guys living in Sri Lanka too. I don't surf Hikkas, too much of a scene for me. I surf south of Galle.  If you want to learn to surf there is a very good coach, French guy and you can get in touch with him through Oystein at Easy Beach he has the guys details and he is a great coach. He works the South Coast of Sri Lanka during the season then he works in the Maldies at Pasta Point.  This 2008/09 season has sucked but it is perfect for you to lean so good luck.  KP
