I arrived a few days ago in Arugam Bay to prepare for the Sri Lankan Airlines pro. Im staying at a really cool place on the beach, 100 meters away there is a good righthand point. I really like that wave even though it's been kinda crowded with hungry competitors and other surfers
Yesterday me, Nicola Atherton and Helene went to another spot called Peanut Farm, with our new friend Amilia, a local guy. We jumped in a Took Took (not sure thats how you write it ), got there and surfed fun rights by ourselves. Then we met a guy who apparently knows Mantras to make elephants run away. They were probably bullshitting us though.
This is probably one of the most different places from home I've ever been to, and it's cool to discover that culture even though sometimes you have to adapt! Like it's kinda weird for people to see girls in bikinis at the beach so yesterday someone kind of attacked Alana. But she's all good.. Anyway.
The comp is starting tomorrow, not sure if we will surf first because there is a longboard contest too.
the website is: srilankanairlinespro.com
Wish me luck!
ps: i'll post photos as soon as the internet gets a little better here.. slow connection!
