Nihal is right. There are plenty of girls who have had bad experiences in Sri Lanka. Hook up with someone and take more than the usual care. Many hostels now advise against girls walking on beaches alone or accepting drinks from new 'friends'. This is from past incidents.

Hello all, interesting post here! I have a few surf questions about coming to Sri Lanka in Feb this year. From what I can see is that the best place seems to be Hikkaduwa at that time of the year? ( or anytime of year?) Am I correct? Is it worth checking out anywhere else? As well, I am travelling alone so wouldn't mind going to the place that has the most to offer in restaurants, 'night-life', etc . I want the best waves I can get, but not to be sitting bored out of my mind in some shack in the middle of no-where, listening to crickets chirp at night! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

sri lanka is cool they are they have the best currys in the world i even had a few for breakfast i couldnt get enough of them!! they are friendly bastards and good for a laugh, they crack me up. its easy to find hostels and people who are travelling they are around, the only dissapointment are the waves i mean aragum bay is a fun wave lacks power size and barrels, midigama has a right hand reef which is ok but nothing special and hikkaduwa is ok like beachy at home, theres a few other ok spots but overall the waves are vrey ordinary, unless u are learning or dont like waves like indonesian type. but its a cool country enjoy it.
