    Surf Song...

    And always it is the same,
    the slender palm trees leaning
    over the white sand.
    The warm sun sparkling on
    the waves As they
    break on the Rest is But
    A Dream From Which Shall
    Presently Awake..."

    - Sir Arthur C. Clarke

    He said that the World Qualifying Surfing Series competition had been held annually in the Maldives and has now come to Sri Lanka due to the end the 30-year-long civil war.

    "We have received about 250,000 tourists for the first quarter of this year, which is an increase of 50 per cent over last year's arrivals," he said adding that the increase was due to the relaxation of travel advisories by several country's after the war in Sri Lanka ended in May 2009.
