Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 July, 2010 : - - The heat is rising and the swell is pumping for the start of the Sri Lanka Champion of Champions Surf Contest at Arugam Bay. Today the contest kicked off with some great surfing by the local Sri Lankan talent from Arugam Bay and Hikkaduwa, who spent the day fighting it out all the way to the semi finals.

The highest scoring wave of the day was from none other than the man who actually lives on the point, Asanka Sanjey. Who got a nine point wave with a double hand grab air, in the first heat.  Asanka went on to make it into the finals alongside Kavinthirian, Santharuwan and Milan all from Arugam Bay.  The Local, Open and Women’s final will all be held on Sunday 4th July.

The top ten surfers from the local division have been drawn into the line up for tomorrow’s first and second heat of the Open.  Which will see them fighting for the title up against UK’s top surfers such as Oli Adams, Reubyn Ash, Alan Stokes and Johnny Fryer.
