Wind blows at an average of 18-20 knots almost every day during our summer season from May to October. We also have a winter season from December to March when we have afternoon winds and when water is still 28 Degrees!

To make it safe and fun, we have an amazing teaching zone, a wide range of gear and certified instructors to teach you how to kitesurf.

On one side of the peninsula is the Indian Ocean: ideal for free-ride and wave riding. On the other side is Kalpitiya Lagoon, a perfect spot for beginners and freestylers. In between, Puttalam Lagoon has a perfect flat water. It’s great for downwind trips and kite safari, freeride and camping on islands.

There is something for everyone, allowing you to come in groups with different levels. We are the best in organized Kite Trips which happen many times a week.

 

You need lessons ?

We provide certified teachers from our kiteschool. All of them are International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) certified and offer kitesurfing lessons from beginners to advanced. We also propose a personalized coaching for experimented riders willing to improve their level.

What does a typical kite lesson day look like ?

It is about 3 hours class in the morning and 2 hours class in the afternoon (one kite day is about 5 hours of kitesurfing). You come back to the hotel for lunch, everything is already ready, just enjoy our self-service buffet and get energy for the afternoon lesson!
