Sri Lanka welcomes surfers as shadow of war recedes

Over the counter bentyl

……Late at night, there is a party on the beach.

“I guessA?[Arugam Bay] is not as developed as some other surfing areas,” says the ASP’s Jake White.

“But I think surf tourism here is really going to boom after this event put it on the map.”……

Just over a year after the end of the long war between the Sri Lankan military and the Tamil Tiger rebels, the country has played host to its first surfing championship. And as the BBC’s Charles Haviland discovered, both surfers and local residents hope it will not be the last.

Julian Wilson, Arugam - June 2010

Australian Julian Wilson won the first surfing championship in Sri Lanka

As dawn breaks over Arugam Bay, a fisherman casts his net into the lagoon near the long, low bridge that links the remote village to the rest of the country.

By 0700, Arugam’s other main industry is storming into life at the southern end of the beach.

On the massive waves breaking in a blue-green sea, contestants in the Sri Lankan Airlines Pro Surf 2010 “surf their brains out”, to quote one of the live commentators.

They ride the waves in virtuoso performances, astonishingly staying upright – mostly.

“Oh, and he’s disappeared!” roars the Aussie commentator as a losing semi-finalist disappears into a wave that looks 20 feet tall.

“Oh my gosh – just 40 seconds remaining – it was do or die – he had to roll the dice, had to have a go!”

‘Cool experience’

By now there are just two surfers left, of the 128 that started a week earlier. The final winner is a 21-year-old Australian, Julian Wilson.

Top-notch surfing – this is known as a six-star contest – has come to Sri Lanka and Wilson says he feels “unreal” to have won.

“It’s been such a cool experience over here,” he tells the BBC.

“The local people have taken such good care of us; the waves have been good every day,” he says. He hopes to return next year.

The locals of Arugam and Pottuvil, including groups of well-behaved schoolchildren and their teachers, have flocked to see the surfing.

Early in the morning some clamber up the dunes for the best view.

I foolishly follow them when the sun is higher and am forced to retreat from the burning heat of the sand.

It is better under the big canopy where drinks are on hand and where the reggae and hip-hop music is being pumped out.

“We really appreciate the surfers coming here,” Abu Saleem Muzzamil, a tuk-tuk driver, says.

“It gives us a lot of business – tuk-tuks, restaurants, hotel rooms, vegetable shops.

“They’re really friendly: they talk to the local people and the kids. For us, it is like meeting long-lost friends.”

Local surfers

The moment Julian Wilson is out of the water and receiving his trophy, Sri Lankans are in the sea as members of the Arugambay Surfing Club “reclaim” their surf point.

Twenty-four locals were given spots in the tournament and two received prize money.

The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) donates some surfboards to their local colleagues and the club’s 26-year-old chairman, Fawas Lafeer, is grateful.

Sri Lankan surfer, Arugam - June 2010

“We have really good skilled surfers but we don’t have any lessons, no surf coaches or anything,” he says.

But the club, whose members sport a uniform of black, red-trimmed T-shirts, are doing their own teaching for young local people, including swimming training.

They hope to increase their strength from 35 to 60 quite soon, says Fawas.

He says the membership completely cross-cuts the ethnic and religious divisions in this very mixed part of the country.

Arugam Bay a?? A Paradise for Surfers

….A also a paradise for party- and wild animals as well:
ARUGAM BAY !

Anyone crossing the bridge will realise immediately that Arugam Bay, if only because of its unique weather conditions, is an ideal holiday location. This particular corner of the island is protected from the west monsoon by the natural barrier of the mountain ridge around Monaragala and the great Pottuvil Lagoon acts just as effectively as a shield against the east monsoon. These factors working together explain why this particular region enjoys an average of 330 days of sunshine each year a?? something which will not be found anywhere else in Asia.

One of the 330 sunsets in a single year

The region is favoured with two major rivers and is therefore never in danger of becoming too arid.

These unusual geographic conditions together with the winds and currents around the coast were first discovered and recognised by surfers in the 1960s and the region quickly became one of the top ten most popular surfing venues in the world. From the end of March until the beginning of October and even for a few days in November, water temperatures range from between 24 and 28 degrees (no need for neoprene suits) and with waves reaching 5 metres the conditions are ideal for surfing. No sharks have ever been sighted in these waters, but occasionally wild elephants from the neighbouring national park have been observed in close proximity to the beaches.

After the discovery of the ideal a??right handa?? surf break at Surf Points, a number of other equally attractive surfing locations became popular.

Arugam Bay seems to work like a magnet and there are many visitors who come back year after year.

The last 30 years of bitter civil war have not stopped dedicated surfers from returning every year and it is this community that has kept the small coastal town alive.

Surfers and security forces were always good friends

The hippies of the past have now all gone a little grey and mutated to a respectable regular clientele, but they add in their own special way to the fascinating atmosphere of this place. These days, they still join in with about a thousand or so happy visitors who come to take part in the 48 hour Arugam Bay a??Full Moon Partiesa?? that provide a more spontaneous alternative to the now stage managed so-called a??Happeningsa?? in Koh Phangan or Goa.

Arugam's FMP revival

And who would be surprised to learn that, in spite of the worst Tsunami disaster on record, an International Surf Championship took place here in July 2005 with competitors from Australia, England, South Africa and Israel. Many locations now have shops specialising in providing equipment for water sports and a complete outfit can be hired for as little as 500 Rs per day.

It is not only the ocean that provides opportunities for surfing, you can also surf the internet and here you will find more discussion groups and visitor communities dealing with Arugam Bay than any other place in Sri Lanka. Some examples are: Continue reading ‘Arugam Bay a?? A Paradise for Surfers’
