Atmosphere

Great spot, a few locals who are soooooo friendly. No competitivelness in the water and sharing waves the norm.
Turtles - but beware of a white tip reef shark about 6 foot long - very inquisitive of the white man!

General

Great place to waste away two weeks surfing waves by yourself with no ther beginners throwing their boards all over the place as opposed to other more well known spots such as Mitigama!!

reply to previous messages - I agree re sharks but one was there!See photo 2 Midigama lefts to prove I have surfed the place. Midigama lefts when small is weak and full of beginners. I didn't mention the right, which I agree with you, can be a very shallow blaster. Hope never to surf with you...and I am from Gower, not 'old China' you cupcake! PS love the way you spelt 'me old' you fool. Spread the love not the arrogance.

Sharks? - Suprised that the reviewer has mentioned sharks here in Sri Lanka on the South/West coast... dont know of a local surfer here yet who has ever spotted a shark... that's the way i'd like to keep it too... what we dont know wont hurt us...
