Show trip route
Ed and I take a mini bus to Hikadua on the Southeast coast. It is very near Galle still with noticeable Dutch influence. Both are well known among international surfing wanderers. It has some great waves. I rented a surf board from a young lad son of the owner of the hotel at which we stayed. Effort to paddle beyond the breakers was exhausting so I only got three or four rides and those just lying prone on the board. Think I managed to stand up for about three seconds.
Chiyoko would fly from KTM in a couple of days to join Ed so it was time for us to split.
