Still working? - Does Unawatuna still work? When I was there 4/5 years ago, they were building a wall/harbour to the right of the bay - has this affected the surf at all?

Unawatuna - We surfed here in over new year 2005/January 2006. Small fun 1-2 ft right hand point break, surfed by a bunch of local kids and teenagers. They're friendly if you're respectful, my mate clubbed one of them on the head with his mal so he wasn't too pleased, but he apologized and the dude was cool after that. Ended up partying with them at one of the bars on NYE - good bunch (see the pics).
